Mental Maths Daily Warm-up
Fancy a challenge? Ask someone (a grown-up or sibling) to pick any number. Answer the following questions:
- What is one more?
- What is one less?
- What is ten more?
- What is ten less?
- Can you count on from this number in 2's?
- What other similar questions can you think of?
Do some counting in your 2's, 5's, 10's and 3's. Follow these links to warm your brains up:
Fluent in 5 - Spring Term
Please complete 1 page of your fluent in 5 booklet every day. Remember to use the methods we have taught you in class. Once complete ask a grown-up to check your answers. Don't worry about printing the booklet off, just use any paper you have to hand. There are also 4 'Flashback' starter activities for you to complete Monday - Thursday. These recap everything we have learnt up to this point.
- Today, we will be going back to pictograms. But now we will be finding out how to draw a pictogram for bigger numbers. Do you remember last week, each icon had the value of 1. If you spot the key to the side, it shows you that each piece of fruit represents 1. Look at the image below and I will explain the next step.
Here, each piece of fruit represents 1. So there are 7 pears, 1 watermelon, 1 orange, 1 apple and 1 banana.
- However, this can be changed if I was taking data from a larger selection. For example, I did a study across the whole school to find out which was the most popular piece of fruit. My results were:
- 35 pear, 20 orange, 15 banana, 5 apples, 50 watermelon
- These numbers are huge and it would take me a really long time to draw out 50 watermelons!
- So, we can change the 'scale' of each icon. Instead of each icon having the value of 1, it could have the value of 2, 5 or 10.
- So my pictogram would look like the following
- If you notice, my key has changed and my fruit now represents the 5. So, each icon that you see represents 5!
- You could change the key to whichever number is most suitable. It could be 1, 2, 5 or 10 so keep your eyes peeled!
- Have a go at as many activities on the document below as possible.
- There is a challenge sheet below it.
It's the last day of the week and of the HALF TERM! Well done for completing your sixth week of home learning
- Today, I have attached the usual arithmetic practice
- Complete as much of it as you can using the methods that we practice in school
- I have then attached a paper based on all of the statistics we have learnt over the past 2 weeks. Try to complete this too so that you can impress yourself with all of your new knowledge!
- Well done on 6 weeks of fantastic Maths work and enjoy a well-deserved rest.
