Friday 27th March

 

1) Flashback 4!


Answer these questions in your books.

 

 

The answers are in this file here: 

2)  Always, Sometimes, Never?

 

I thought you could do something a bit different today and practice your mathematical reasoning skills. This is an excellent reasoning activity for you to try.

In the PDF file below, you will find a series of statements. For each, you need to figure out whether the statement is ALWAYS true, SOMETIMES true or NEVER true. 

However, you cannot simply answer with always, sometimes or never. You need to back up your answers with evidence or specific examples.

 

For example...

Statement:    Quadrilaterals have only 2 lines of symmetry. 

Answer:         This is SOMETIMES true. I know this because some quadrilaterals (like rectangles and rhombus') have only 2 lines of symmetry but others have more or less. For example, kites only have 1 line of symmetry and squares have 4 lines of symmetry. 

 

 

Some will be more difficult than others but have a go and try your best. They will definitely get you thinking!

 

I would love to see you share some of your answers and ideas on the blog! In fact, I want to see as many as possible!

Task 1) 2016 Arithmetic Paper 

 

I thought today you could have a go at the arithmetic paper we sent home in your pack. You can do it timed if you want to (30 mins) or you can take your time and use it just to practice the different arithmetic skills we have taught you. The answers are on pages 12 - 16 of the mark scheme I have uploaded here. 

 

If you have already completed this paper, you could do more arithmetic practice on daily 10 (https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 )  or you could try another arithmetic paper. I have uploaded another one here for you. You don't have to print it, you could just write the answers in your work book. smiley The answers are on the last page.

Task 2) Ratio - Lesson 4

 

Then, go to the White Rose home learning site and scroll down to ratio lesson 4 (calculating ratio):     https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

 

Watch the video and have a go at the questions on the activity sheet. 

This lesson is a bit harder than the others have been so far, but don't worry. Ratio is a tricky topic anyway and it will be even harder to grasp when we are trying to teach and learn remotely. Just give it a go and do what you can smiley 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 25th March

 

1) Daily 10 arithmetic practice:   https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 

 

2) Ratio - Lesson 3

 

As usual, follow this link: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

 

Please watch the video for lesson 3 (Introducing the ratio symbol) and then complete the activity sheet on the right. Remember to check your answers afterwards. 

 

 

 

Tuesday 24th March

 

1) Daily 10 arithmetic practice:   https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 

 

Same as yesterday please. You could try a new skill today or increase the difficulty. 

 

2) Ratio - Lesson 2

 

Just like yesterday, please follow this link to the White Rose home learning page.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

 

Please watch the video for lesson 2 (Ratio and fractions) and then complete the activity sheet on the right (you can write the answers in your workbooks). Remember to check your answers afterwards. 

 

Many of you struggled to access the White Rose site early yesterday morning. This was because there was such a high volume of children across the country trying to access the website at the same time. The site worked much better later on so my suggestion would be to start with your English or Topic tasks and then try Maths a bit later when the site is not as busy.

 

 

 

Monday 23rd March

 

1) Daily 10 arithmetic practice:   https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 

 

Follow the above link to spend roughly 15 minutes practising your arithmetic skills. You can change the level of difficulty and choose a new skill each day (e.g. subtracting with 5-digit numbers or finding fractions of amounts). You can set the question interval to 'manual' so there is no time pressure and complete the calculations in your work book. The answers will be available for you to check at the end.  

 

2) Topic: Ratio

 

This week's learning will focus on ratio. This has not yet been covered in class but luckily, White Rose have provided some fabulous, clear and easy-to-follow resources for us to use.

 

Follow this link to the White Rose home learning page for Year 6.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

 

Lesson 1 is about using ratio language. Please watch the video and then complete the activity. This can be downloaded by clicking "get the activity" on the right of the video. Complete the questions in your workbook and check your answers by clicking the "get the answers" link. 

 

You don't need to go any further - we will move on to lesson 2 tomorrow!
