Which traffic light colour are you feeling today? Green? Yellow? Red? Or a mixture? Remember, it’s okay not to feel okay all of the time. And, you can always talk to someone at home about how you feel or you can email us at email@example.com (but remember to include your name otherwise we won’t know who it’s from!).
Starting from this week, Joe Wicks will bring you live P.E. session every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you miss any of his lessons, these will be available on his website so you can join in whenever you have time.
Remember to take a rest or sip of water if you need one.
Use the number line below to count in 25s. What do you notice? Can you spot a pattern? What multiple of 25 comes after 200?
- Multiples of 25 end in 25, 50, 75 or 00.
- Counting up in 25s always follows that order.
- There are two 25s in 50 (25+25) and four 25s in 100 (25+25+25+25).
- With every step of 25 there is a bigger step of 50. Within each hundred there are four steps of 25.
Remember to also spend 30 minutes completing activities on Mathletics as well as 15 minutes practising times tables on Times Tables Rock Stars.
