Mental Maths warm ups continue as normal. Remember to read each question carefully and work on becoming more accurate as the week goes on. You should have plenty of time to look over your answers and see where you are making mistakes. This will help you to avoid making them next time.
This week you should be completing Monday - Thursday pages 58-59
This week we will be looking at facts to do with weight.
You should know all about grams and kilograms up to : 1kg 1/2kg 1/4kg 3/4kg and 1/10kg
Questions such as:
1. How many grams in a kg?
2. How many grams in 3/4kg?
3. How many kg in 500g?
These questions should be worked out in your head and will form the mental maths part of your Friday check up
We have included some worksheets to help with your revision of weight facts. If you have scales in your house it is fun to find objects, estimate their weight and then weigh them to see if you were correct. (Just a wee helpful hint - this does not mean your Mum!)
We are going to work with decimals this week.
The following worksheets should be completed at your own speed and take your time to ensure you are confident each time before you move on.
These word problems give us an opportunity to try out all the mathematical skills we have learnt. Read the questions carefully and decide on the best approach. Remember to think about the information in the question and decide if it is necessary - sometimes there are facts and numbers you don't need. It's up to you to decide.
