Maths Week 3

Welcome back to the Summer Term!


There are 2 focus tasks for Maths this week:

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

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



We hope you now understand what to do and have completed the 2 weeks of White Rose Maths from before the Easter break.


Please click on the link which takes you to the White Rose Maths Website and Summer Term Week 1. 

Remember to keep everything in your Home Learning Book.

This week, the lessons focus on 'Adding and Subtracting Decimals'. There are 4 lessons in total with a Friday Challenge, but you can begin to attempt lessons 1 to 3, or have a go at all 4 and the Challenge.


Remember to first watch the 5 minute teaching video. Then click on the worksheet and give it a go in your Home Learning Book. The sheets follow the similar school structure of Fluency, Reasoning and Problem Solving.    


Once complete, click on the answer sheet and mark your work.



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 practise on. The timetable for the week is as follows: 1) Negative Numbers on a Number Line 2) Add and Subtract  3) Multi-step problems 4) Multiples and Factors 5) Challenge of the week. The link to the site is here


If you look at the 'other home learning' link on our school website on the Year 6 page for this week, you will see the timetable that the BBC have set up for other subjects for the week. 


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

● Transformations ● Converting ● Volume ● Calculating with decimals ● 2-D and 3-D shape

Unfortunately we haven't seen the website yet as it doesn't go live till Monday 20th April, but it likely to follow the same structure as the White Rose learning tasks, so if you feel like trying these then complete them in your Home Learning Book. The website link is here


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 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 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 don't try to complete it all in one go.
