Term 2a (Jan/Feb)

P5 Numeracy – Term 2a (January/February 2021)


Here you will find the topics we have been doing in class and some websites which will help practise these skills at home. Also remember to log-in to Studyladder, where you will also find PODS linked to our focused topics in Numeracy for Term 2a.



You had started to learn your multiplication tables at home before Christmas and that is the main focus for this half term. It is important that you know ALL of your times tables in P5. Start with revising x2,5,10,3 and 4 which you would have learned in P4 also and then progress onto x6,7,8 and 9. If you can, try to go over x11 and x12 as well…if you learn these while learning the other tables, then they won’t seem so scary.


Use the links to these games to help practise those tables at home. There may also be some practical things you could do at home to help you learn your tables…

  • Do you have stairs in your house? As you go up the stairs, pick a table and say the answer as you go up each step. E.g. x6 à 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 etc.
  • Have you a ball? If it is dry. Go outside and bounce the ball off the ground or wall. Every time you catch the ball say the answer to the table, e.g. x8 à 8, 16, 24, 32, 40 etc.
