Virtual learning

We will be completing virtual lessons on Seesaw for you to access and watch. Within these lessons, I will be recapping all prior learning including adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, fractions, time, money, shapes and measuring. The questions to complete are all on these videos where we will also show you how to solve these questions and we go through the answers. We also provide extension activities you could be doing at home if you finish the task with time to spare at the end of the videos. These include more challenging questions like word problems.

There will be a Times Table Rockstars battle this week in Year 3 vs Year 4. This will start at 9:00am on Monday and finish at 5:00pm on Thursday.

Please continue to use the following online resources to develop different Maths skills:
