For your settling in activity (8:40 - 9:10) please complete the next two arithmetic sheets and then peer mark - look at areas you still need to improve upon. Remember arithmetic skills are key to so many areas of maths and also revise many maths skills, keeping them to the forefront of your mind.
Complete 5 'percentages of an amount' questions - similar to the ones we practised last week.
Remember: 3 key steps - can you remember them?
Today we will have double maths, and then have double English on Friday .
This is good practice for Secondary/High School where you may have double lessons for one subject!
As a whole class revise all 4 operations when working with fractions (9:15 - 10:15).
1) adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators (adult will write10 on the board)
Remember to find the common multiples. Simplify if the answer is improper and convert to a mixed fraction where possible.
2) multiplying fractions (easiest method ) you can create 5 fractions with your table partner.
Blue group: using numbers between 1 - 10 for the numerator and denominator.
Green group: using numbers between 5 - 12 for the numerator and denominator.
Purple group: how tricky do you want to make it? Apply your multiplication methods to solve fraction calculations.
3) Then, the last method we have learnt: 'KFC'
Your adult will write 5 calculations on the board for you.
It's break time already!
Get plenty of fresh air, eat your healthy snack and keep hydrated.
Complete Maths Paper 2
As there is not an assembly eating into your time, you may have enough time to complete Paper 3 as well.
Last time, most children wanted to continue and complete the whole booklet - although I will timetable in some time to complete paper 3 tomorrow, despite saying we would have double English. It may be a mixed session with some completing papers and some carrying out English tasks.
Time for lunch!
Enjoy the fresh air - keep active.
Eat up all your lunch and keep hydrated.
