I am embarking on something new this week which will hopefully grow into a really useful resource as time goes by. It is the first in a series of mental arithmetic questions aimed at Year 3.
It consists of two sets of ten questions, followed by an answer sheet. Each set is a full A4 page so that they can be used in several ways. If given orally the teacher/parent only needs to print the answer page as all the questions are included on this and the children can just write the answers or call them out. If the teacher/parent wants the child to read the questions then they can print out the question sheets as well. This could also be shown on a whiteboard.
The first set of questions concentrate on writing whole numbers, counting on and back in tens, addition, subtraction and place value.
