Big Maths Beat That
We will be introducing the children to 'Big Maths Beat That' this half term. The children will complete a Big Maths sheet on a Monday, they will bring this home so you can see their score and practise the questions over the week. On a Friday, the children will complete the same sheet they had on the Monday and we can see if they have beaten their original score.
The children will be using the Big Maths Beat That timers on youtube to complete the sheets. Here is an example of a timer, although your child may have a different amount of time for theirs, it should say on the top of their sheet.

You could take and print a photo to stick into your books, or create and write a table of the different objects you found.
Here are some simple examples:
