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 62 - 63
We are aware that this week you will need a new mental maths book so this week we will be adding a pdf of the pages you need. If you can call up to school from 1pm on Friday 15th May, or any day next week, hard copies will be available to collect from the front door.
This week we are going to look at the facts relating to length and measures.
How many mm in a cm?
How many mm in a metre?
How many cm in a metre? 1/2 m? 3/4m?
How many metres in a km? 1/2 km? 3/4km?
We are going to continue to work with money 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.
We are going to look at grid positions this week. Remember you must walk before you can climb. So we always use the grid reference along the bottom first when describing positions.
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.
Some people have been in touch this week to say that these word problems are causing them a bit of a problem (and that's just the Mums and Dads!). The main issue with word problems is that they do not always have only one way of solving them. They are meant to be discussed and solved in a group or with a partner. Is there anyway you could do that this week? A family member? Can you use technology to connect with others in the class?
The other thing to remember is that we can't do everything at once, sometimes we need to split these worksheets over a few days. The first three questions should be ok for most people. The middle three will need a bit more thought. The final three are the extension questions and are designed to make you think. Just do your best.
