Today's Problems


Below are the problems I would like you to solve today! There are 2 problems to complete before having a go at the challenge bubble


  • For your first task I would like you to shade in the 100 square by counting in 8’s. So the first square you would shade in is 8 and then I would count on 8 jumps and land on 16! 😊
  • Your second task is a grid you need to fill in using your skills of counting in 8’s. I have completed the first one to give you an example. Have a go at completing the rest of the grid in the same way, you can use your 100 square to help! 😊 - This is the same task as last week which you completed for your 3's and 4's so have a look back to refresh your memory! :)


If you have any questions please contact me via the class email...


You've got this! heart
