Friday 27th March:

 

Happy Friday Year 6. 

 

Please watch the lesson 5 video here then log in to Purple Mash and complete the sheet in the Work section - you can always write or draw your answers onto a separate piece of paper and upload a photograph of it into your work section. 

 

In this final lesson on ratio, you will enlarge shapes to make them 2 or 3 times as big. You will learn the term “scale factor” as the name for this process. You should be able to draw 2-D shapes on a grid to a given scale factor and be able to use vocabulary, such as, “Shape A is three times as big as shape B”.

Thursday 26th March:

Good morning. Please watch the lesson 4 video here then log in to Purple Mash and complete the worksheet. You'll find the sheet in the 'Work' section on the website. 

 

You will be building on your knowledge of ratios and begin to calculate ratios. You'll answer worded questions in the form of for every… there are …’ and you'll need to be able to find both a part and a whole.


You can draw bar models to represent the problems, and clearly label the information you have been given and what you want to calculate.

Wednesday 25th March:

 

Good morning everyone. Please watch the lesson 3 video here then log in to Purple Mash and complete the worksheet as best you can. You'll find the worksheet in the 'Work' section. 

In this lesson, you'll be properly using the colon notation as the ratio symbol, and continue to link this with the language 'for every..., there are...'


You will need to read ratios e.g. 3 ∶ 5 as “three to five” and understand that the notation relates to the order of parts. For example, ‘For every 3 bananas there are 2 apples would be the same as 3∶2 and for every 2 apples there are 3 bananas would be the same as 2∶3.

Please watch the lesson 2 video here then complete the worksheet I have made for you in Purple Mash. Again, I have placed it in the 'Work' section. I have updated the downloading and uploading instructions for Purple Mash and put them below. 

 

A mistake often made is a ratio 1 ∶ 2 is the same as a fraction of 1/2. For this lesson, try to use objects and diagrams to compare ratios and fractions.

Good morning Year 6. 

 

Your maths this week will continue to be based around ratio and proportion. This will be new to those of you who couldn't make it into school last week and will be good revision for those that did. 

 

There is a video to watch here (lesson 1)  then please complete the worksheet I have made for you in purple mash. It is a word document that you will find in your 'Work' section - not your '2do' section.  You will need to click on your class folder on the left hand side, and select the maths home learning folder. You can then download, complete the sheet and then upload back into your work section. I have put some instructions of how to do that below. 

 

Please can you all access the PiXL times table app every day - it's free to download if you haven't already got it. Choose any of the activities that you want to play. We'll be keeping an eye on your results and let you know which specific times tables we need to work on as a year group.

  • This week, we have shared an information story about Coronavirus. We have talked about our concerns and asked questions. We have reminded ourselves that if we are feeling anxious or upset the best thing to do is talk to someone that we trust about our feelings and this can help us to feel better.

We have also talked about ways to relax and calm ourselves down when we need to. For example, listening to calm music, sitting in a dimly lit room and focusing on our breathing. 

If you are at home today, please watch this story by clicking here and share this story and discuss your feelings with your family.
