This weeks work (starting 01.06.2020)
For this week we will be going back to decimal place and place value. We did do this close to the start of the year so these lessons will be great to remind you of this simple yet important area of mathematics. We used place value grid a lot in our lessons in school the link to one is just here underneath the text. As well as in a pdf at underneath the lesson. This will be a helpful tool, you can print it out to help you in your lessons or copy it to the top of the page to reference while you are working.
This is an online place value grid you can use on your computer make sure you set it too table in the top right.
In this first lesson on decimals, you will explore different ways you can represent and write decimals.
In your second lesson on decimals, you will be combining your knowledge on place value, multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 and unit conversions from earlier in the term to solve decimal related problems.
In this lesson on decimals, you will be focusing on adding and subtracting decimals using known facts. You will end the lesson by playing a game!
In your fourth lesson on decimals, you will work on a range of methods to add decimals. You will also look at common mistakes so that you don’t fall into the same trap!
In your fifth lesson on decimals, you will work on a range of methods to subtract decimals. You will also look at common mistakes so that you don’t fall into the same trap!
Last weeks work (starting 25/05/2020)
This week we will be moving onto looking at and reminding ourselves about units of measure before we start on shapes and perimeter.
In this lesson we are starting a new unit of work on converting measurements. In this lesson, you will be looking at time. We will start with a revision of time facts. As the lesson develops, you will hone our skills of converting between seconds, minutes and hours and by the end of this lesson, you will be solving time-related problems on a blank number line whilst also converting units of time.
You will be deepening our understanding by solving time problems and representing them using bar models. You will work through several problems together which will increase in difficulty. By the end of this lesson, you will have explored the underlying structures which help us convert units of time and solve problems.
You are going to focus on converting between units of length. We will start with a revision of conversion facts between millimeters, centimeters, meters and kilometers. Using these facts, you will apply these to some real-life problems around the Olympics. You will also bring in non-standard units thinking about how many laps different track races at the Olympics are.
You will continue to look at length. You will apply everything we have learned about length so far and apply it to some examples of real-life problems. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to convert different units of length so that you can spot errors and solve logistical problems.
You will be combining our knowledge of perimeter and converting units to find the perimeter of rectilinear shapes.
Additionally, attempt the updated 'daily problem' on https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/classroom-resources/problems/ for further challenge. Answers are also provided to allow you to mark your work.
You are all first-rate mathematicians and are more than capable of completing these extra challenges after the work.
