Here are suggested activities linked to your weekly overview for Week 6 (11.05.20). This week's focus is looking at some revision of your four operations and ‘3D Shape’. For the 3D shapes lessons, please have a look at the Powerpoints, videos and games to practise finding the properties of shapes. For the lessons, you’ll have a few worksheets you can complete linked to your Numeracy group. Please make sure you choose the correct activity. You do not need to do all the worksheets for all the groups...just your group. Remember to check out Studyladder too where you will find some PODS to work on. If you need any help or further explanations...please email your teacher. We are only too happy to help. laugh

Numeracy Lesson 1  - Revision of 4 written operations (+,-,x and ÷)

 

For your first lesson this week, we’d like you to spend some time revising your written maths operations. We have looked at all four maths operations; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (with and without remainders). Spend some time today practising all four of these. You will find some worksheets in your ‘Fun Numeracy Activities’ booklet, however if you’ve already completed these, have a go at the activity below for your chosen Numeracy group. If you’d like some more practice or if you find one operation more difficult than the others, ask someone at home (if they can) to make up some more for you to try. Remember the golden phrase, ‘Practice makes perfect’.  You may also find some PODS on Studyladder to help you practice, but remember to have a page and a pencil handy to do your working out as a written calculation.

Lesson 1 Worksheet - Copy into your book and complete as a written sum!

Numeracy Lesson 2 - Word Problems 

 

After spending some time learning the four written maths operations in P5, we also spent some time practising word problems using RUCSAC to help us. Spend some time revising the different words for your operations. The first activity is to colour code the words that mean add, subtract, multiply and divide. Afterwards, have a go at the word problem worksheet for your Numeracy group. Remember to use RUCSAC and to try to ‘picture’ the problem in your head to help work out what maths operation is needed. Do your working out in your workbook or on a separate page and don’t forget the label in your final answer. It’s very important!

Make sure you know these words....

Numeracy Lesson 3 & 4 - 3D Shape 

As you’ve had some time doing revision this week, we’d also like you to spend some time thinking about 3D shapes.

Remember 3D shapes are 3D because they have three dimensions (length, width and height). They are all around us so think about the different 3D shapes you can find in your house or in your garden. One of your lessons will be thinking about the properties of 3D shapes. Properties of 3D shapes are how many faces; edges or corners (vertices) it has. They are not flat shapes (2D) but shapes you could pick up and hold in your hand (well, as long as they’re not too big).  Have a little look at this PPT which introduces the 3D shapes, their names and some of their properties. Then have a go at the quiz before trying the worksheet. When working through the worksheet, use some objects in your house to help you or look back at the PPT for some help!

Now have a go at filling out the table of properties of 3D shapes. Perhaps you can find some around your house to help you fill in the table. This is exactly what we would do in school. We would have the shape and investigate it to help us fill in the table.

          laughA face is like the side of a 3D shape

          laughAn edge is something you can run your finger along

          laughA vertex (vertices – plural) is a fancy term for the corners – they’re usually spiky when you poke your finger into them.

 

Try the following Kahoots to revise your 3D shapes. The codes are 03251335, 05319244 and 03248825.

Numeracy Lesson 3 Worksheet

The next few activities on 3D shapes are just a little bit of fun and you can try one of them, some of them or all of them if you’d like. laugh

 

  • You can make your own 3D shapes using cocktail sticks and jelly tots/mini marshmallows/dolly mixtures (See Worksheet below) 
  •  You could make a ‘Wanted Poster’ for a 3D shape? Remember to use all your 3D mathematical words in your poster to describe your villain.  (See worksheet below) 
  • We know lots of you like playing computer games, so can you create a character on Minecraft made from 3D shapes or can you create a structure made from various 3D shapes and tell us a little about it? - You may be limited to cubes/cuboids
  • If you're allowed, download the ChatterPix Kids APP . Photograph a 3D object and make it speak telling us all about its properties. You can do a few of these and add them into PicCollage to make a 3D shape poster.  (See example below)
  • Make a 3D shape poster to help you remember the shapes, their names and their properties.
  • Make a junk robot out of different 3D junk objects in your house.

 

We hope you have some fun doing these activities and if you try some of them out, don’t forget to send pictures to your teacher. We love to see what you’re up to. laugh

We know you can do better than this....it's good fun!
