Maths homework this week is to make a paper plate clock, ready to use in our live lessons next week. Remember to make the hour hand smaller than the minute hand, but both should be able to move around the clock.
Teachers will continue to use My Maths at certain times during the term, see details below.
How to access MyMaths
Go to www.mymaths.co.uk and login at the top of the page with the school’s username and password (see letter sent home). On the next page your child should enter their personal username and password in the My Portal box. MyMaths will then remember who they are and automatically log them in to the tasks.
Teachers may have set tasks for your children to access. To access these, children need to log in to their own portal in order to see what has been set. We recommend that, before completing the work, the children click ‘Revise First’ and access the full lesson, rather than simply completing the online worksheet. Lessons and worksheets each open in new tabs. When the child is confident with the lesson content, they can then close the lesson and go to the worksheet. The worksheet has normally got two pages (tabs on the left hand side), after which the child clicks ‘Mark it’. When both pages are completed, children then need to click ‘Check out’ and only then should they close. This ensures the scores are recorded and logged under their name.
If there are no tasks set, children can still work on topics, complete activities or play games.
To work on topics and tasks, they need to log out of their personal login and work in the school portal. From here they can select the areas of maths they would like to work on. On the left hand side (near the top) you have a drop-down menu from which you need to select National Curriculum (Eng.). Then, go to ‘Library’ and select the area of mathematics you wish to work on. You will then find a large number of topics and lessons, but need to choose the topics from your child’s year group.
