Nearly at the weekend now, then you Will have a few days off from my little tasks. I hope you have fun with them andI hope you will have fun with this little warm-up that I have found for you. I’m trying my best to find lots of different games to try so I’m not repeating myself and you will not get bored. Here is a new one but you will need someone to play with.
How did you find the perimeter lesson that I set yesterday for you? Hopefully you found it straight forward, it is remembering the name of the process that we can easily forget so repeat it a couple of times in funny voices to get the term to start to make a home for itself in your brains. I have uploaded another PowerPoint to go over the process again and for you to answer questions on and then there are a few sheets available for you to answer. The shapes are a little more complex today, not just squares or rectangles. If you can’t print out, try and draw your own different shapes and find the perimeter of those.
Remember 1 ⭐️ means easier working up to 3 ⭐️ which is the trickiest, find a level that you are happy with.

For the warm-up I have for you today, you could use actual coins and envelopes or you could draw your own coins and envelopes as i think if you have the equipment in front of you it will help you to get to the answer more easily.

Another classic game that we have used before in the classroom. Do you remember, ‘Buy a word’? Each letter of the alphabet has a value:
A - 1p B - 2p C - 3p D - 4p E - 5p F - 6p
all the way up to Z - 26p.
The topic of words that we will focus on is items that you find around your home, so it could be ‘sink’ or ‘bed for example. Write the item and then create a calculation for the values B E D would become 2p + 5p + 4p. Add up the total, can you find items that cost between 40p and 60p???
Let me know what you bought.
Our friend the fraction is back, I promise we are nearly there with this topic. Yesterday we added fractions, can you take a wild guess and think what we will be doing today? Yep, you guessed it, we are going to subtract them today, again it’s not as hard as you think it will be. It has the same principle as yesterday, the denomater (the bottom number) will remain the same and you simply subtract the 2 numerators (top number). Use summer week 2, lesson 2. Good luck 😉.

You know how I love my logical number puzzles 🧩, well I have another one for you today. This game actually works online and you can use your laptop 💻 or tablet to try and find a solution for it. Can you fit the numbers 1-8 into the grid to complete the calculations and find the correct totals, remember to look 👀 at the calculation symbols as some are add and some are take away, so be careful.
I’m really sorry to tell you this, but fractions are back, we still haven’t quite finished with them yet. You have been doing a fantastic job, I know it’s not easy to understand them, but keep trying, I’m so pleased and proud of all that you are doing and your achievements. Today you will be adding fractions together, it isn’t as hard as it sounds, I promise.
We will be using the White Rose maths scheme, go to summer week 2, lesson 1. I have also included a link, cross fingers it works, to more sheets, that hopefully will visually aid the addition process. Good luck, let me know how you get on.
