LEGO STORIES

In August, the monthly Lego Stories event took place during the summer break. A wonderful group of multilingual children, toddlers, babies, parents and carers made Lego creations, wrote stories and communicated in many different languages, including Dutch, Estonian, Hindi, Amharic and Arabic.

And, we received eleven delightful stories written by participating children and families. Enjoy reading them and scroll to the Photo Gallery section at the end to view the amazing Lego creations made by the participants – ranging from magical balloons, monsters in the zoo and spaceships of the future to WWII ditches in history!

DIVISION IS EASY, RIGHT?

On our website, there are resources teaching how to use place value and partitioning to understand division. They offer plain and simple examples and hands on exercises.

Here are two worksheets that may help:

DIVISION STRATEGIES USING PLACE VALUE (partitioning TU by U for years 6 to 12)

LEGO STORIES

The monthly Lego Stories event took place in April during term break. We hosted a wonderful group of multilingual children, toddlers, babies, parents and carers. Together they made beautiful Lego creations, wrote amazing stories and communicated in many different languages!

The next Lego Stories event at North Kensington Library is on Monday 20 May 2019. There is a reward at the end for creative writers who make Lego masterpieces and write a story that goes with them: colourful balloons and bubble makers!

TTLCIC - Read, write, play!

Max 20 minutes to complete a short story with play!

Young writers use the 7-sentence story templates to draft and publish their stories. The 7-sentence structure guides the writing process, to inspire an amazing story with play.

QAR COMPREHENSION

Question-Answer relationships (QAR) is a powerful strategy to boost comprehension, for communicators, readers and writers.

Recently we added a new worksheet to our online resources:

QAR Comprehension Fiction – Worksheet with a Rudyard Kipling story and 28 QAR questions

TTLCIC - The times tables

Q: How to make learning the times tables easy and fun?

A: By practicing regularly with the Multiplication Square!

TTLCIC - Abacus

AREN’T NUMBERS FUN?

Numbers can be mysterious things! Apart from counting or measuring, they are not met through the five senses. And, there are different kinds of numbers: for example rational numbers and irrational numbers.

‘What is a number?’ is not a question asked before children reach the age of attending higher education. Before that time, they work with numbers: in other words, they do mathematics.

If you are helping your children, here are two worksheets that can help with the task:

MULTIPLICATION SQUARE (blank up to 12 for years 8 to 12) (Free offer)

MULTIPLICATION SQUARE (up to 12 with answers for years 6 to 12) (Worksheet with answers)

They include a special times table page that makes learning multiplication up to 12 easier and enjoyable!
