Year 4 week 3 (number knowledge and patterns)  

This week we focus on the quick recall of our addition and subtraction facts, and creating and completing patterns. 

This page suggests activities for each day. Click to download a printable PDF to help keep track of progress. 


Day 1

Number facts

  • Go to the activity Addition facts to 20 – test yourself and follow the instructions for the variation. Sort the facts into two piles, ones you can recall quickly and ones you need more practice on. 

  • This activity aims to increase how fast you can recall the addition facts with sums from 11 to 20. Recalling means that you “know” the fact and don’t need to count fingers (or other objects) to work it out. 

  • If you already know all your addition facts, go to the number facts pathway in e-ako maths

  • Play the "Number facts" game "Making 100" a few times.  

Patterns e-ako

  • Go to the Patterns and relationships pathway in e-ako maths

  • Choose e-ako PR2.30 (the third yellow button on the second row). 

  • Work through pages 1-11.
