Numeracy – Grid Multiplying HTU x U
Again this week, you’re going to be doing more grid multiplying similar to the work we did last week.
As the numbers are a little bigger this week, you will have to do a vertical addition calculation to ensure you’re adding correctly.
You will need to know your tables really well.
Watch the video below to help you and The PowerPoint will take you through practicing this new method also.
Numeracy – x4 Puzzle
Your task is to find 5 solutions to the problem. As you can see from the picture of the house that there are 5 rooms. Four in the house and then the roof space.
I would like you to arrange the people and the sheep so that there are 24 legs in each room. (You must have people and sheep in the room)
(Think: How many legs do people have? How many legs do sheep have?)
There are 5 different answers to this problem, so make sure you don’t repeat any. Cut and stick the sheep and people into the rooms, or if you don’t have glue or scissors, maybe you could draw them in instead.J
Numeracy – 2D Shape (The Triangles)
This week, we are focusing on the Triangle pages in your booklet. There are three pages to complete. You’ll maybe need some cocktail sticks or pencils to complete the first page.
A few things to remember:
Perimeter – this is the distance around the outside of the shape. You measure each side and then add them up, easy peasy.
Lines of Symmetry - this is cutting a shape into two equal pieces and if you fold it over through the cut, both pieces would fit exactly together.
Tessellating – this is fitting shapes together with no gaps or overlaps. Use your square to investigate whether they tessellate or not.
Here are a few videos to help with today’s work, however all we really need to focus on in P5 are equilateral and isosceles triangles.
