### Previous Week's Learning:

Friday 26th June:

Subtraction - Day 5

Word problems. Can you solve a selection of word problems involving addition and subtraction? Use my Power Point to practice then try to solve the problems on the 2nd Power Point.

Thursday 25th June:

Subtraction - Day 4

Can you use the inverse to find a missing number? So on a simple level:

8 - ? = 5 so how can we rearrange the question to put the ? at the end?

8 (as its the largest number) - 5 = ? So the answer would be 3.

Wednesday 24th June:

Subtraction - Day 3

Money. Furthering your work on decimals today you will subtract using money. Do not forget to check your own work with the inverse operation and complete and addition to see if you were correct. If they do not match - check your working out. You will find the Power point for today's lesson below.

Tuesday 23rd June:

Subtraction - Day 2

Decimals. Today could be trickier you have decimal values to line up. What happens if the bottom number has more decimal places than the top number? How can you make them the same length but not make the number any larger?

Have a go at today's questions. Let me know how you get on.

Monday 22nd June:

Subtraction - Day 1

What can you recall about subtracting numbers?

Use the place value skills that you have practised last week to help you with this work.

### Previous Week's Learning:

Thursday 18th June:

Continuing on the theme of money and decimals to day you will add some more. This time included is some rounding activities. How well can you remember how to round numbers? If you are not sure read this first:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zh8dmp3/articles/zpx2qty

Wednesday 17th June:

Today you will continue to recap your addition skills. Today you will be using money to develop your use of decimals further. Email me with what you do so i can check over it for you.

You can always go on Prodigy to continue to develop your other skills.

Tuesday 16th June:

Today you will continue to recap your addition skills, whilst trying to reinforce your place value using decimal places. Email me with what you do so i can check over it for you.

Monday 15th June:

As part of getting ready for secondary school I plan on reviewing the basics over the next few weeks. This work is identical to the work that those who have returned to school will be completing. There's lots to do. So get busy!!

## Power Points for the week:

### Previous Week's Learning:

Friday 12th June:

Prodigy

Line graph assessment. Today there are 20 questions on Prodigy set to see how good you are at understanding data. Complete them all and let me see your success rate. Yesterday the average score was 85%. Many people were in the 90%'s but some did drop down to 75/77%. Be careful.

Thursday 11th June:

Prodigy

Today I have set you an assessment on line graphs and pie charts. How well can you do? Some people are smashing Prodigy already this week - well done Maisie and Sam.

If you are unsure about pie charts remember these things:

• A full circle is 360 degrees.
• So if the data for 10 people are is on the chart 360 divided by 10 is 36 - so 1 person is a 36 degree slice, of pie.
• Larger sections = more people made that selection.
• Slices of pie can be equal to fractions.

Use this if you want to practice first: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zrg4jxs/revision/5

Wednesday 10th June:

What you need to be able to do is understand what you have drawn. What does it mean when a graph goes up, down or stays the same? You might need to know this to help you with today's activity. Look for the worksheet below.

Tuesday 9th June:

You did well yesterday. Today you need to be able to make you own line graphs. Remember SALT.

S - Scale - what are we measuring and how much are we counting in?

A - Axes - which direction measures which part of your data?

L - Labels - a graph means nothing unless you explain what scales mean.

T - Title - What is the graph about? We need to know in order to understand.

Have a go at the activity below for the 9th June. Use the powerpoint to refresh your memory if you are unsure.

Monday 8th June:

Today's work is on line graphs and how to read the data that they show us. Use:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zrg4jxs/revision/1 to help you review the skills needed. It does say KS3, but the information is good and clear and in 12 weeks you will be KS3 so think of it as good practice. The work below is KS2 so have a good go at it.

## Powerpoints and Worksheets

### Previous Week's Learning:

Friday 5th June:

Prodigy

On yesterday's assessment the average score was 85% How do you work out and average (mean)? Well if you had scores such as:

100      85      66    82     52

What you do is add them all up. You would get 385. You then divide by how many scores were used. In this case its 5 so 385 divided by 5 = 77. The average score is 77. So yes some of you did score higher than the average. Can you make a higher average today?

Thursday 4th June:

Prodigy

On Prodigy there will be focus questions about percentages. Get on there and complete as many questions as you can. Looking at the leaderboard we could with some more names up there.

Good Luck

Wednesday 3rd June:

Well done yesterday, for those of you whose work I saw. Today you need to order fractions, decimals and percentages. It would help if you could convert them into the same type. So:

If you were given 1/10, 45%, 0.87 ans 3/5 change them all to % for example. Then they would be: 10%, 45% 87% 60% Now you can easily put thm into order.

Tuesday 2nd June:

Well done yesterday, for those of you whose work I saw. Today you need to find matching fractions, decimals and percentages.

So: 1/2 = 0.5 = 50%

Introduction:

https://vimeo.com/420690973

See the files just below in this section for Tuesday 2nd June. Please only look at the answers once completed.

Monday 1st June

Today's work is around changing fractions to percentages. Remember percentages (%) are out of 100. So if you can make the denominator out of 100 and adjust the numerator in the same way to make it fair.Then you have a percentage. For example:

3/5 (3 over 5) = 5 x 20 = to make it out of 100. To make it fair 3 x 20 is 60 = 60/100 (60 over 100). Therefore 3/5 (3 over 5) is the same as 60%

The average score yesterday for the assessment was 97% with most people scoring 100%. Well done guys! I have added another set of questions today - based on multiplication and the place value of decimals. I hope you do as well as you did yesterday! I'll be watching.

Thursday 21st May: Prodigy

I have set some assessments on the skills that you have developed this week around place value and multiplication/division. Let me see how well you can score. I will let you know tomorrow what the scores are looking like so make sure that you get on and get some questions done.

Wednesday 20th May: Dividing decimals by whole numbers (integers)

Remember we have done this in class. You can use a bus stop method and just keep the decimal in the same place. Then just divide as normal. With 1 digit it is easier than the longer division that we were doing that had 2 digitis to divide by.

PRODIGY!! WOW - you guys are amazing. The leader board changed so much yesterday. People who were in the top 3 are no more. People who had answered no questions are now up near the top. Keep up the good work. Remember accuracy is more important than the quantity. Get them right not rush through them. Plus correct answers = victory.

Thursday 30th April:

PRODIGY!! Can you get the top spot? I can see how many questions you have gotten correct and how many you have attempted. The top 3 players will get a special mention on the class page at the end of Friday. To be a top player its not about doing the most questions, its about taking time to get them correct. Good Luck team!!

*remember to look at the correct answer if you were wrong - learn about what went wrong so you don't make the same mistake twice.

Previous Week's Learning:

Friday 24th April

Angles in a triangle. 180! Let's learn about the angles in triangles. Try lesson 2 today. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

Remember, Prodigy is always available once you have completed this task.

Thursday 23rd April

Let's change it up. Today we can do some work on angles. What does acute, obtuse and reflex mean? You may need this vocabulary to help you understand vertically opposite angles. This is easier than it sounds - some opposite angles are equal in size. Equal. EQUAL! Have fun.

Wednesday 22nd April

Comparing fractions less than 1 video. Please use the below link to work through the lesson. We have done this before. It still requires you to create common denominators by multiplying and being fair to the numerator.

Prodigy is also available as usual. Be careful with your accuracy. Some of you are only getting around half of the answers correct.

Tuesday 21st April

Continue to work on Prodigy, if you need any help with your fraction understanding please go to:

This should help remind you about common denominators and recognising that denominators may vary but fractions are worth the same values.

Monday 20th April

Log in to prodigy I have set the questions for this week to be based around:

Fractions.

You will have to add, subtract and order fractions. I will be able to see how well you get on so if you are unsure how to do any of these skills, look online or email me. Good luck!

Mr Redfern.
