Week Beginning: 13th July 2020
Maths is going to be a bit different again this week. You will have another 2 mystery games to solve. In the game something untoward has happened and there are a list of suspects. It is your job to discover which suspect is guilty of the ‘crime’. There are 5 clues to solve in each game, each clue is a different mathematical activity. There are therefore 10 activities to complete over the week, this works out as 2 per day but it’s up to you if you want to spread them out or do a whole game at once then have some days off from doing maths.
You may need to do some research or ask an adult for some help on some of the questions Eg Roman numerals or time (as we haven’t done much on time this year)
This weeks games are:
The Mystery of the Spoiled Party Bags
Activity 1: True or false maths questions
Activity 2: Number Sequences
Activity 3: Matching analogue and digital time
Activity 4: Adding money
Activity 5: Coordinates
The Mystery of the Pinebridge Village Hanging Baskets Problem

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.

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!
