While you're on topmarks why not choose another category? We've been practicing pace value and multiplication and division this term so why not recap some of your recent learning? (screenshot below not clickable)

Here are the Maths Activities for the Week Beginning 30.3.20

Remember to carry out the above mental maths warm up activities every day. Please continue to practise your times tables as well. air

 

Here are the Maths activities for week starting 23rd March 2020
Times Tables Activities

Practice your times tables using the games linked below.

Also practice saying your times tables out loud.

 

Pandas and Tigers should work on their 2, 5 and 10 time tables and if you are confident in these, also try your 3 times tables.

 

Cheetahs and Dolphins should work on their 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables and if you are confident in these, also try your 6 times tables.

Multiplying by 10 and 100

 

Cheetahs and Dolphins - Practice multiplying numbers by 100. This is easier than it sounds because you only have to add '00' to the end of the number! Watch BBC Bitesize for examples and then try to answer the questions on the worksheet.

 

 

 

 

Pandas and Tigers  - Practice multiplying numbers by 10. This is easier than it sounds because you only have to add '0' to the end of the number! Watch the YouTube clip and then try to answer the questions on the worksheet.
Estimating

In class we have practiced estimating the number of objects in a group and talked about how it is like making a sensible guess.

Now you're going to make some estimates based on physical activities. Think of a physical activity, such as bouncing a ball or doing star jumps, then set a time limit of 1 or 2 minutes. Then give a sensible estimate as to how many times you can do that activity in the time limit.

For example,  how many star jumps do you think you can do in a minute, or how many times do you think you can bounce a ball in 2 minutes.

After making your estimation, carry out the activity and see if your estimation was correct.

How many different activities can you think of?
