**Mental Maths practice:**

In school, we like to begin our sessions with short mental maths warm ups. Why not spend 10 minutes warming up your brain using some of the links below or spend an extended session practicing mental maths skills!

**Topmarks - Daily 10 **

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10

This is a great resource that the children LOVE!! at the start of each maths session.

It's very simple to navigate. You can choose a level using the purple tab (we usually stick to level 1 or 2), then choose an area in maths you'd like to practise with your child (addition, subtraction and doubles/halves are areas that we have been working on recently), and finally choosing which numbers to work within. Once you have set your challenge it is just a case of selecting a time for the children to answer each question. You are now ready to begin your mental maths warm up!

**Topmarks - Mental Maths Train**

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/mental-maths-train

This is a 4 operation mental maths game focussing on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Children choose the answers from multiple choice answers. Another great mental maths challenge to get the children warmed up!
