Class 7 Maths Home Learning 

Parents and children will be able to access maths home learning opportunities from this page:

1) Learn by Heart

2) An activity linked to recent work in the classroom.


Maths Challenge

How good are you at ordering numbers?
Can you challenge yourself to go beyond 100?  Take the maths challenge!


What do you spend your money on and how does it make you feel?

You could illustrate your answer and write one or two sentences


Learn by Heart: Instant Recall Space Mission!

Instant recall is one of the most important parts of learning mathematics.  It gives children a bank of knowledge from which they can draw to help them when working with maths in a range of situations.   

What each child from Year 1 to Year 6 should have:

  • A log book which stays in school – updated with dates when they achieved their targets
  • A copy of their current target sheet to take home – so they and all adults involved with the child know what they are working on next: ask your child which planet are they on!
  • A fortnightly opportunity to be tested by staff to show what progress they are making against their targets

Subtraction is the inverse of addition. Explore this by clicking here.


Please find below a 'Home Learning Activity' linked to what we have been doing in class. 

We have started the term by counting and ordering numbers. You can practise this at home by clicking here.

Investigate number patterns with the Dice Challenge by clicking here. 

As we move into October, we will be doubling numbers. Have a go at playing a doubling game by clicking here.

Can you find examples of doubles all around you? There are some examples here.

Go shopping with your parents and look for examples of doubles in the supermarket. Take photos or draw pictures. Three housepoints will be given for a selection of examples. HAPPY HUNTING!!

Finally, what is the biggest number that you can double?  Explain how you did this.

Double 3 is ........Double 3 is ........

Doubles All AroundDoubles All Around


Moving on into October, I would like you to think about the greater than, less than and equal symbols (>, < and =).

Take a pack of playing cards and write one of each of the three symbols (>, < and =) on 3 different pieces of paper. Shuffle the cards and place in a pile between you and a playing partner.

Turn over a card, ask your playing partner to do likewise. Place your symbol according to how your card compares with your partner's. So if your card is a 6 and theirs is an 8 you will use the 'less than' symbol between the two:  6 < 8. Then it is your partner's turn to take a card first and compare his with yours. Whoever has the greater number of the pair earns 2 points, if the equals symbol is used you each get one point,. if your card has a value less than your partner's you lose a point. If you turn a picture card it too will have a value. A Jack is worth 10, a Queen is worth 11 and a King is worth 12. An Ace has a value of 1.

The winner is the player who has the most points when all the cards have been turned over.

A fun activity for practising addition and subtraction on a number line can be located by clicking here.


Towards November, we will turn our thoughts to shape. First,  we shall be looking at 2D shapes and naming and describing the properties of these shapes. Click here for a link to an activity on Purple Mash. The activity is called 'Polygons' and it provides words and pictures to help you select the shape, name and describe its properties.

Shape namesShape names

There are lots of fun shape activities to do on Purple Mash. Browse through them by clicking here. Save your work in your folder for me to look at. Thank you! Mrs. Ashton.

Once back to school in November we shall play with numbers on Triangular Cards. Do you understand how addition and subtraction are the inverse of each other? You will once you have completed one or two of these puzzles!

Click here to have a go.


Mid November: Can you play 'Park the Pods'? You will need to use your counting on and counting back skills to solve addition and subtraction challenges. Click here to have a go!
