SumDog Competition
A new competition starts today (Thursday 14th) and runs until 5pm on Wednesday 20th May.
Good luck everyone!
Week Beginning: 18th May 2020

Learning Objective 
Mental Maths (15 mins) 
Explanation 
Task 
Monday 
Complete Big Maths Sheets 
Speedy doubling – start with 83. Keep doubling. See how far you can get in 2 minutes 

2. CLIC – take as long as you need 
Tuesday 
To draw reflections of a shape 
Take part in the SumDog competition it ends tomorrow! 
When reflecting a shape you need to look carefully at the size of the shape and also the exact positioning of it. For example if a shape is 2 squares away from the line of symmetry on one side, it should be 2 squares away from the line of symmetry on the opposite side (see the example on the sheet) 
You can print the sheet and draw the shapes on.
It is possible to complete the work on the sheet on a computer/iPad etc by using the borders controls or by drawing lines. Just let me know if you need help with this.
*Remember to use a ruler to draw lines 
Wednesday 
To draw reflections of a pattern 
Take part in the SumDog competition it ends TODAY! 
As with yesterdays work, you need to look carefully at the exact place of each coloured cell (you will need to count them). Remember that it is a reflection not copying one side to the other. 
You can print the sheet and colour the pattern on it.
It is possible to complete the work on the sheet on a computer/iPad etc by using the fill function which comes up as a paint can on the toolbar at the top or when you right click on a cell. Just let me know if you need help with this. 
Thursday 
To draw reflections in 2 lines of symmetry 
Practise 7 and 12 times tables 
We have looked at reflecting shapes and patterns in one line of symmetry but now we are going to try it with 2 lines of symmetry.

You can print the sheet and complete the work on paper
It is possible to complete the work on the sheet on a computer/iPad etc by using the fill (which comes up as a paint can on the toolbar at the top or when you right click on a cell ) and borders functions. Just let me know if you need help with this. 
Friday 
To create a symmetrical model or piece of artwork 
Missing numbers: ___ x 7 = 56
352 + ___ = 479
____  256 = 324
8 x ___ = 72
___ + 156 = 542 
Use things that you have at home (art materials, lego even plates or tins from the kitchen cupboard!) to create a symmetrical model or piece of art. Be as creative as you like but it must be symmetrical!
I have put a video of the making of my own example below! In the final picture I have taken 1 piece away so it is not symmetrical. Can you spot it? 
Take a photo of your masterpiece and send it to me!

Wednesday 
To solve 2step word problems 
Find fractions of amounts: ½ of 98 =
1/4 of 36 =
3/4 of 36 =
1/5 of 75 =
3/5 of 75 =

These worded problems could be any operation (+, , x or ÷). Read them carefully to work out what maths you need to use. Please show your workings out! 
Target Your Maths Hexagons – Section C Squares  Either Section B or C
Write your workings out and answers on a Word document and email it to me or write workings out an answers in your homework book and send me a photo. 
Thursday 
To understand and identify lines of symmetry 
Have a go at the Sudoku puzzle below. Ask a parent or younger sibling to explain how to do them if you’re not sure. 
Look at the PDF document of a page taken from the Abacus Textbook. Some lines of symmetry are correct, others are not 
Either on a Word document or on a page in your homework book write the question number and tell me which lines correctly show a line of symmetry and which do not (all lines have a letter) Eg
*Also complete the ‘Think’ task at the bottom 
Friday 
To draw lines of symmetry 
Extra SumDog time! 
Look at the shapes on the sheet and draw in the correct lines of symmetry. Check carefully that you have found them all! 
Print and complete on the sheet then send it to me. Alternatively, you could draw the shapes into your homework book and then draw the lines of symmetry.
