Maths Challenges with Gareth Metcalfe
Every weekday at 9am, two new lesson will be posted on the page above via YouTube. Each video will help children to build the skills needed for the main task. Then children will complete the main task – a challenge or short series of questions – working individually or with adult support. These tasks can also be downloaded from this page by clicking the relevant links. Answers will be provided! The first videos/tasks will be uploaded on Monday 23rd March.
It is important to start from the 1st video and work through in order because skills will be developed and reviewed.
