For homework the students are required to find, weigh and compare 5 items from in the house. Weighing scales will be needed for this homework.
Over the next two weeks the students will be working on finding the difference, recognising and using currency, giving change, directional language, reading analogue clocks and time duration.
For homework this week the students are required to sort the information taken from the Barclays Premier League table. They will need to read the table and decide whether each team 'has' or 'has not' met the criteria given in the Carroll Diagram.
Two pieces of homework ago the students were asked to sort shapes into a Venn diagram. They sorted them using one criteria. A Carroll Diagram is slightly harder as it requires them to sort the football teams using two sets of criteria.
During the work we carried out in class, the children completed a Carroll Diagram based on the length of their height and feet. We then also sorted them by their month of birth and height. We concluded that the children born between August and January were taller than the other children in the class.
The homework set carries on from the work modelled and practised in class last week. The students need to use these practised methods to double and halve numbers. The students were mostly accurate answering the questions when the work was given in number form however when they were in the form of word problems, they found it much more challenging, hence why they are being required to consolidate and practise these skills for homework this week.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate in contacting me via e-mail.
Block C2: Handling data and measures
This week and the first week back after half term, we will be working on number lines and measurement. The unit starts with an introduction into reading scales when numbers are displayed in differing intervals; like on weighing scales. The children will be asked to collect data by measuring length using millimeters and recording their findings in tables of information. This data will then be interpreted and conclusions will be made. On Wednesday the children will investigate whether the tallest children in the class always have the largest feet too. They will use the information they have compiled, share it and gather more from others, then answer the question using the data they have massed and interpreted.
Throughout this week the students will be continuing to consolidate the work they began last week; doubling and halving numbers using the written methods taught.
Welcome to our maths page! This is where I will update you on the work we are covering in class each week. There will be a selection of website links available to support you with homework. Each week I will post a selection of photographs so you can see how hard the children have been working! Enjoy!
