My DTDs have just finished Yr3. In both of their reports they are both described as having the potential to be excellent mathematicians, with their current key weekness being word problems and knowing which operator to use (there are 7 apples in a bag and I have 5 bags how many apples have I got kind of thing).
I would like to help them out a bit over summer and keep their brain ticking over gently. They love using the internet for educational games (woodlands Junior and bitesize - which they navigate themselves to after using them at school). Are there any good resources for this kind of problem solving. There only seems to be a handful of age appropriate sums of this type on Woodlands. Anywhere else I could look.
I would at a push print out worksheets but online is much more amenable to them as I don't want to sit them at the table to do "homework" during the holidays.
<Oh and I am obviously picking out RL examples verbally as we do things around the house/shops etc.>
I had seen that one Feenie but wanted something a little easier to start with. Although they can do remainders when given a simple number sum I think they will struggle combinging remainders with word problems.
