Week Beginning 1st February 2021

How to access teacher feedback on google forms

Monday 1st February

 

Hello fabulous Year 6s! It’s Mrs Leverton here with your maths learning this week again.

We’re continuing from where we left off last week with our work on percentages. Today’s lesson is a little bit trickier but builds up on Friday’s lesson so keep concentrating and you’ll quickly grasp it.

Warm up

First have a go at the flashback 4 to get your brains warmed up. It’s all things that we’ve covered so far in Year 6. I wonder how much you remember? Remember, you can always play on TT Rockstars as well to rehearse your times tables.

L/O: To be able to find more complex percentages of amounts

Firstly, watch my video explaining how we can use a basic parentage of an amount to find more complex percentages.

Y6 percentages of amounts

Now have a go at the fluency questions – as always, choose level 1, 2 or 3 depending on your confidence. Remember to use bar models where they help you – they’re a really useful visual tool for representing percentages. I have also included the remember tos for you.

Now challenge yourself with some reasoning and problem solving! Select the appropriate level for you.

We would love to see your work! Please share it on the google form. There is also a google quiz for you to show me your learning through a couple of questions and it gives you the chance to feed back to me on anything you need more support with.

Great work again Year 6! There were a couple of issues came up on the google quizzes that people asked for help with so I'll explain those below. Thank you so much for all your responses on the quizzes - it really helps me to see how I can support you more and hopefully more of you are seeing my replies since Mr Murphy's great video.

5a (reasoning 2 question set) seems to have confused a few people. I've shown my answers and explanation which will hopefully help you - it's one of those questions where there can be many answers but it's about how you reason you answer. UPDATE - sorry just re read my explanation but I can't edit - it should say A and C are under Β£100!

The other issues were around finding percentages which were a bit more complicated like 19,28,47. Hopefully the first picture will explain this. The other was when a percentage of more than 100 was asked for - see picture two for this - remember 100% is the whole amount.

Tuesday 2nd February

It’s the last new piece of learning for percentages today – then you’ve learned all you need to know about fractions, decimals and percentages (or FDP as the cool kidz call it… I can see you all cringing at the screen!)

Warm up

First have a go at the flashback 4 to get your brains warmed up. It’s all things that we’ve covered so far in Year 6. I wonder how much you remember? Remember, you can always play on TT Rockstars as well to rehearse your times tables.

L/O: To be able to find a whole from a percentage

So today is almost working backwards – given a percentage you will be calculating the whole. This is a little bit tricky so keep pausing the video to make sure you’ve understood it and go back and watch it again if you need to.

Y6 finding a whole from a percentage

Now have a go at the fluency questions – as always, choose level 1, 2 or 3 depending on your confidence. Remember to use bar models where they help you – I do think they will really help some of you today. I have also included the remember tos for you.

Now challenge yourself with some reasoning and problem solving! Select the appropriate level for you.

***ADDITIONAL TASK***

Make a snowman/snowlady/snow sculpture, make a snow angel, go sledging - basically go away from your screens for a bit and enjoy the weather! Upload a photo you would like to share using the maths google form of fun in the snow and I'll upload them later.

Wow Year 6! Thank you so much for sending your work and in and focussing even with the distraction of snow! You are all stars and we are very proud of you.

And having fun in the snow! Thanks for sharing JB and IL - it looks like you had lots of fun! Meanwhile, EF has been exploring the co-efficient of sliding friction...! Love it EF! I've shared some of our snow fun too!

CONSOLIDATION LESSON – DECIMALS AND PERCENTAGES

We have now completed two blocks of maths learning during remote learning – wow! Before we move on tomorrow, I wanted to show you how much you have learned. So, today’s lesson is a bit different. There is no new learning so no remember tos. I have included a short video just to recap on some of the key pieces of learning for you first of all.

Y6 consolidating FDP

I’m confident you will have enough knowledge to work through these two quizzes – one on decimals and one on percentages. There is only one level but they do get trickier through the questions so don’t worry if you find the last few questions on each quiz harder. I’ve also included the answer sheets so you can check how you did.

For those of you wanting another challenge following your learning on percentages, here is an extra activity to have a go at.

We would love to see your work! Please share it on the google form. There is also a google quiz to let me know how you got on today and it gives you the chance to feed back to me on anything you need more support with.

Well I think you showed yourselves how much you've learned during the last 4 weeks of remote learning today! Wow year 6! We are so very proud of you. The fact that you generally told me you found these challenges quite easy shows how much you have focussed in on your maths learning at home. Once again, I know this is due to the tremendous support you are receiving at home from your adults - I hope they're getting plenty of thank yous!

2 pieces of fabulous maths EW! You knew when you needed to convert to compare. Well done!

Thursday 4th February

For the last two days of this week, we will be recapping on some written methods. The feedback on the google quizzes has been that this is an area you would like some more support with. For those of you that are really confident with the methods, challenge yourself to a higher level and focus on the reasoning problems. Next week we will begin our new block of learning.

Warm up

First have a go at the flashback 4 to get your brains warmed up. It’s all things that we’ve covered so far in Year 6. I wonder how much you remember? Remember, you can always play on TT Rockstars as well to rehearse your times tables.

L/O: To be able to calculate using a written method for addition and subtraction

We will begin today by revising the written column methods for addition and subtraction, particularly focusing on using these for larger numbers and decimal numbers. Watch the video below for a reminder.

Y6 addition and subtraction revision

Now have a go at the fluency questions – as always, choose level 1, 2 or 3 depending on your confidence. Remember, if you’re confident with the methods, challenge yourself to try a harder fluency level. I have also included the remember tos for you.

Now challenge yourself with some reasoning and problem solving! Select the appropriate level for you. Make sure you know which method to use for each question. There may be some questions that require more than one step to calculate.

We would love to see your work! Please share it on the google form. There is also a google quiz for you to show me your learning through a couple of questions and it gives you the chance to feed back to me on anything you need more support with – I’ve found this really useful to plan the learning content for you all.

Great work today using the column methods for addition and subtraction. I can see some very well set out calculations, exchanges recorded correctly, and lots of you accessing the reasoning and problem solving questions. Great stuff!

EW - well done, you calculated well here with both fluency and reasoning questions and even managed to set them out well on the computer!

Friday 5th February

It’s Friday, woo! Well done on another fabulous week of learning Year 6s. To finish off the week we’re going to be revising our written methods again.

L/O: To be able to calculate using a written method for multiplication and division

We will begin today by revising the written methods for multiplication and division.

Y6 multiplication and division

Now have a go at the fluency questions – as always, choose level 1, 2 or 3 depending on your confidence. Remember, if you’re confident with the methods, challenge yourself to try a harder fluency level. I have also included the remember tos for you.

Now challenge yourself with some reasoning and problem solving! Select the appropriate level for you. Make sure you know which method to use for each question. There may be some questions that require more than one step to calculate and there may now be a mixture of all four methods!

we've had so much work uploaded today - well done fabulous Year 6s! The feedback on the forms was that generally, people found the division harder than the multiplication. Both methods become easier just through lots of practice so today will have helped. Now it's Friday, you can relax and enjoy your weekend!
