Week Beginning:  18th May 2020

 

 

 

Learning Objective

Mental Maths (15 mins)

Explanation

Task

Monday

Complete Big Maths Sheets

Speedy sequencing – start with 4.

Keep adding 4 each time.

See how far you can get in 2 minutes

 

  1. Fill the answers in on the sheets:
  2. 1. Learn Its – time yourself if you can

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.

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.

 

*Remember to use a ruler to draw lines

Thursday

To draw reflections in 2 lines of symmetry

Practise 6 and 8 times tables. Remember 6s are double 3s and 8s are double 4s

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 6 = 24

 

125 + ___ = 247

 

300 - ___ = 182

 

___ + 182 = 395

 

4 x ___ = 32

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!

Tuesday

To solve word problems

Fill in the blanks:

1. 56 + ___ = 96

 

2. 34 - ___ = 25

 

3. ___ x 5 = 35

 

4. ___ ÷ 4 = 6

 

5. 10 X ___ = 80

 

6. 28 - ___ = 5

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 – Page 56

Circles – Choose any section

Triangles  - Either Section B or C

(A is easier, C is hardest)

 

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.

Wednesday

To solve word problems

Have a go at learning 9 times table – use your 3 times table to help you

 

Eg if you know that:

4 x 3 = 12

Then

4 x 6 = 24

Then

4 x 9 = 36

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!

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

  1. a, b and c are correct.  d,e and f are incorrect (this is not the actual answer!)

*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.
