Pre-Course Test
So that we can all assess our mathematical strengths and weaknesses we will complete this pre-course assessment

Challenge
One of our major focuses over the next few weeks will be improving our knowledge of the times tables. The plan is to complete this worksheet every Saturday morning until we can complete the worksheet in the minimum possible time. Times Table Challenge

Addition and Subtraction
The focus of todays session will be on addition and subtraction. 

Starting with addition and subtracting on small numbers - practise using the pyramids and magic squares. Note that addition and subtraction are opposites.
