Whitehouse Primary School uses rolling numbers as a strategy to support children to start to learn their multiplication facts. The rhythm and actions help the children to develop their recall. Children use their fingers for each multiple to 10 to help them make the connection between the multiplication fact and the rolling number they are chanting. This is used as a simple strategy which children then use to help them to become fluent in their multiplication facts.
Off-Screen Maths Ideas:
- Practise telling the time to the nearest five minutes.
- Practise making amounts of money using coins – how many ways can you make 50p? £1? £5?
- How many different ideas can you think of for: “If the answer is 10, what is the question?” The number could be made more challenging by including a fraction or a decimal.A different number or part of maths could be used each day.Create a poster showing everything you know about _________ (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, place value, shape, fractions, decimals, graphs etc.).
