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 70-71
We will spend the next two weeks revisiting all of our tables (x and ÷).
Have a look over all your facts and check if there are any you are unsure of.
You should be aiming for quick and accurate recall.
Number and Topic Work
The next few weeks we will be revising over the concepts learned in P5.
Work through your Assessment Booklet that you were given when school closed.
Aim to do a couple of pages each day and note down anything that you have particular difficulty with. If you would like any guidance on anything that comes up, please just drop me a wee email.
If you have already been working through the Assessment Booklet, then there are some more resources below that may be useful.
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 section of questions should be ok for most people. The second section will need a bit more thought. The final section is the trickiest. Just do your best!
There is a word problem format page that might be useful for you to work through as you think about the information and calculations you need to work with.
