# Week beginning 22nd February 2021

Monday 22nd February

Hello Wonderful Walkley Year 6s! I hope you are all rested after the half term and ready to start another week of home learning. It’s Mrs Leverton here with your maths this week again and we are going to start another new unit focussing on algebra – I love it and I’m sure you all will as it’s clever stuff! Today starts quite basically but will build up gradually over the next couple of weeks.

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 simple rule

Firstly, watch my video explaining how we work out a simple rule to create a pattern of numbers and how we can use this with input and output machines.

## Y6 algebra 1 step rule

Now have a go at the fluency questions – as always, choose level 1, 2 or 3 depending on your confidence. 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.

## Well done EW! It seems like you really understand these function machines.

L/O: To be able to find a two-step rule

Firstly, watch my video explaining how we work out a simple rule to create a pattern of numbers involving two steps and how we can use this with input and output machines.

## Y6 algebra 2 step rule

Now have a go at the fluency questions – as always, choose level 1, 2 or 3 depending on your confidence. I have also included the remember tos for you.

Now, have a go at the quick reminder of two step input output machines from yesterday’s learning.

## Y6 algebra expressions

L/O: To be able to form simple expressions

Firstly, watch my video explaining how we form simple expressions – this is where I will introduce letters standing for an unknown number which is what algebra is all about.

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.

## Well done for today Year 6s! I know some of you found today's lesson harder as we have introduced the use of letters in calculations. However, I am so proud of you that you didn't give up and just worked through it! The more you practice, the easier it will become. By the end of next week I'm sure you will start to see it as entirely normal that letters are in calculations!

Now, have a go at the quick reminder of our learning over this week first  by having a go at this recap.

L/O: To be able to substitute into an expression to give a value

Firstly, watch my video explaining how we can substitute in to an expression. This will give us an output value.

## Y6 algebra substitutions

Now have a go at the fluency questions – as always, choose level 1, 2 or 3 depending on your confidence. I have also included the remember tos for you.

## EW - great reasoning and fluency - the one you were not sure about was a true or false so you have calculated correctly, the fact that it is not the same as the statement is because it is false. Well done EW!
