Mental Maths

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 68-69

Tables

This week we will be revisiting our times tables as our mental maths.  Have a look over your x1 - x12 facts and check if there are any you are unsure of.  You should be aiming for quick recall of all your multiplication facts.

Numberwork

This week we will be using our times tables knowledge to complete these multiplication worksheets. Remember to carry just like last week with the addition.

Data Handling

This week we are going to continue to look at extracting information from various types of graphs and charts.

In these worksheets you will find  bar charts and pictograms.

We would suggest taking one of these worksheets per day so that you can clearly distinguish between each type of graph.

Word Problems

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.
