Maths

There are 2 focus tasks for Maths this week:

- Complete the White Rose Maths (see important information and link below)

- Try the Arithmetic Test (attached below - including answer page)

UPDATE 

 

WE HAVE ALREADY COVERED THIS WEEK’S TASKS ON THE WHITE ROSE WEBSITE EARLIER IN LOCK DOWN SO WE ARE USING THE ALTERNATIVE LESSONS BASED ON REVISING OUR KNOWLEDGE OF LINE GRAPHS (WHICH WE STUDIED JUST BEFORE WE FINISHED SCHOOL.)

 

THIS WEEK WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO WATCH THE VIDEOS I HAVE SAVED BELOW AND THEN COMPLETE THE CORRESPONDING TASK SAVED UNDERNEATH.  I HAVE ALSO ATTACHED THE ANSWERS FOR YOU SO YOU CAN MARK YOUR WORK.  YOU WILL NOT NEED TO ACCESS THE WHITE ROSE WEBSITE THIS WEEK UNLESS YOU WANT TO COMPLETE FRIDAY’S CHALLENGE, THEN CLICK THE LINK BELOW.

THIS WEEK’S ARITHMETIC TEST IS TAKEN FROM TWINKL AND IS IN A DIFFERENT FORMAT TO WHAT WE HAVE BEEN USING ON TESTBASE.  IT SAYS YOU SHOULD TRY AND COMPLETE THE TEST WITHIN 30 MINUTES AND THEN MARK YOUR WORK USING THE ANSWERS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.  IF IT TAKES YOU LONGER THAN 30 MINUTES, PLEASE DON’T WORRY.

 

Over the next few weeks we will be saving some additional challenges / home learning tasks for you to complete at the bottom of this page.  This week's additional challenges includes: Emoji code breakers, every day number challenge set by the Premier League and Mathopoly.  We have saved everything you will need to play this maths version of monopoly at home and the other activities at the bottom of this page.  All of these activities are optional but are a lot of fun!

Year 5 - Week 8 - Lesson 3 - Draw line graphs

This is "Year 5 - Week 8 - Lesson 3 - Draw line graphs" by White Rose Maths on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

For this lesson we would like you to watch the video above.  To make the lesson more exciting we would like you to become shadow experts (if it is a sunny day) by measuring your own shadow at different times during the day.

 

How to measure your shadow: Stand with your back to the sun. Using a piece of chalk, mark on the ground the top of your shadow and another where you are standing. Then measure your shadow with a ruler/tape measure.  (you will need someone to help you!)  If you are struggling, you could measure the shadow of an object in your garden.

 

Use the sheet (taken from Twinkl) to record your results and then use these to produce a line graph.  There are differentiated sheets to help you draw your graph.

 

If you would prefer something more structured (and with answers to check your graphs) then you can complete the White Rose activity for today instead.

Everyday Numbers Challenge - Premier League Primary Stars

The Everyday numbers challenge encourages you to think about all the numbers that are a part of your day.

Go on a number hunt and make a note of the daily activities which involve numbers. Fill in the Everyday numbers timeline. Get creative and add pictures to your timeline, or you could even make a collage.

There are two templates for you to choose from. (If you don't have access to a printer, have a go at drawing the timelines and send a photo.)

The BBC have now commissioned a home-learning section for each year group and they have 5 maths lessons for the week. The lessons follow a similar structure to the White Rose tasks above - a video to watch and learn from, then some reading to learn from and then some game-style activities to practice on. The timetable for the week is as follows: 1) Percentage symbol and its meaning 2) Write percentages as fractions and decimals 3) Adding decimals using a formal method 4) Add decimals with different decimal places 5) challenge of the week here https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-lessons/1

Another website that has been set-up by the Government is the National Academy. They will have a series of maths lessons for the week that will have a focus on DECIMALS: 

1) Decimals using a mental multiplication strategies

2) To solve and represent decimals problems

3) Decimals involving two digit multiplication

4) Decimals - to solve three by two digit multiplication

5) To solve long multiplication problems

 

Each lesson starts with a quiz, followed by a video (Just like the White Rose) then an independent learning activity so if you feel like trying these then complete them in your Home Learning Book. The website link is here https://www.thenational.academy/

During the week, a particular favourite mathematician of ours - Gareth Metcalfe - adds a new reasoning and problem solving lesson every morning at around 9am at http://www.iseemaths.com/lessons56/ Feel free to give this a try too. He has included all the previous lessons on the website.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have completed all the other tasks and would like to attempt more maths, another website that will be of use is https://www.mathematicsmastery.org/free-resources If you scroll down to the Year 5 area there are booklets for children and guidance packs for parents. The packs are supposed to last for 4 weeks at a time....so don't try to complete it all in one go.
