Start off today by completing this retrieval quiz:
Now check your answers.
Have a go at these spelling games to practice words from the Year 5/6 spelling lists.
You will have noticed that the games used the same words. Did you get them all correct?
Yes – put them into some sentences ensuring that their meaning is correct.
No – why not spend some time working on learning these spellings.
Complete this reading lesson on information leaflets. Whilst you are reading and answering questions, pay attention to the structure of the leaflet as we will be completing some next week.
Today you have a selection of challenging maths problems to work through. You can do them in any order but try to attempt all of them.
These sixteen children are standing in four lines of four, one behind the other. They are each holding a card with a number on it.
Each child in blue is holding a number which is four more than the child in the same row wearing red.
The children in yellow shirts each have a number which is double the number of the child in the same row wearing red.
Some of the numbers that the children in red, blue or yellow shirts are holding have got rubbed off. What should the numbers be?
Can you work out how the numbers that the children in green are holding have been worked out?
In the 2×2 multiplication square below, the boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column give the result of multiplying the two numbers in that row or column.
The 3×3 multiplication square below works in the same way. The boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column give the result of multiplying the three numbers in that row or column.
The numbers 1−9 may be used once and once only.
Can you work out the arrangement of the digits in the square so that the given products are correct?
Look at these cards.
Can you sort them so that they follow round in a loop?
The coloured shapes stand for eleven of the numbers from 0 to 12. Each shape is a different number.
Can you work out what they are from the multiplications below?
(We’ve done this one before)
Can you sort out the four clues that help and the four clues that do not help in finding the number I am thinking of?
Four of the clues below are true but do nothing to help in finding the number.
Four of the clues are necessary for finding it.
Here are eight clues to use:
- The number is greater than 9.
- The number is not a multiple of 10.
- The number is a multiple of 7.
- The number is odd.
- The number is not a multiple of 11.
- The number is less than 200.
- Its ones digit is larger than its tens digit.
- Its tens digit is odd.
What is the number?
In this calculation, each square represents a missing digit:
One possible solution is:
Can you work out some different ways to balance the equation?
Can you put the numbers 1 to 8 into the circles so that the four calculations are correct?
Are you able to come up with a maths challenge for your classmates to complete?
For the next few weeks, we will be completing a project that will bring in elements from different lessons.
First watch this:
Cadbury’s Chocolate has been a part of British history since 1824 and has created many of the nation’s favourite chocolate bars.
Read these fact sheets about the history of Cadbury’s chocolate.
Create a PowerPoint or a leaflet that explains the history of Cadbury’s.
Next week we will be looking at the different chocolates that Cadbury’s make. In preparation, start thinking about which chocolates are your favourite. Ask your family the same question.
