Maths No Problem


When completing Maths No Problem work, please don’t feel the need to print off the online workbook.. These can easily be completed on paper.


Here’s what you can do instead of printing off:

- Have your child verbally answer the questions with you.

- Talk through the questions together. (You might be surprised at how much you learn!) 

- Copy the workbook pages onto paper and answer. (See the examples below)

- Number the questions and answer. (See the example below)


I hope this helps with your mathematics home learning. Please use contactclasses@newinf.cumbria.sch.uk with any questions, issues or comments and I will respond as quickly as possible.


Thank you for all the work you’re doing with your child’s learning.

Mr Pow and Mr Wilkinson are going to set different challenges.

Challenge 1- Set by Mr Pow- Can you create and make a boat?
Example of how to set work together

There are many fabulous online resources including the free Twinkl resources if you sign up. Please don't feel pressured to print these resources out as this will become very costly, very quickly. Please use your device as a text book and your child can write out answers on paper.

As the children at our school are very young, please support them by writing out questions where needed. They can then put all their efforts into writing the answers. Please encourage sentences where you can.

As Mr.Wilkinson's son is in year 2 too, this week we have been using the KS1 60-seconds reads bumper pack from Twinkl. Just do one at a time. Also, it takes much longer than 60 seconds :) Do not worry if you need to read together, being able to discuss the answers is another really important skill.

Thank you for all your hard work!

Hello families,


We tried this craft at home and thought you might like to try it too.



  • Ideally permanent markers of any colour but with a little care, any ballpoint pen will produce a torchlight picture.
  • Clear plastic.
  • White paper or light cardboard to make your torch.
  • Black paper or any dark material to provide a background. Even a bin liner could work!


Step 1: Draw your scene.

Step 2: Take your dark background and insert under plastic picture.

Step 3: Draw a torch including a white beam and cut it out.

Step 4: Place your torch between the plastic top layer and the dark background to create a magical torch effect!

Magic torch project

See-through plastic, white and dark paper
Draw whatever scene you wish
Any permanent pen. Black pen alone works too.
