# Week Beginning 25th January 2021

25.01.21- Monday

Hello Year 6! Week 3 already! It’s Miss Stephens who will be planning your maths for this week!

We are going to be learning about percentages!

Monday

First warm up! Try the flashback 4!

Understanding percentages

Remember tos:

I can explain what percent means.

I can understand the link between fractions and percentages.

I can understand that percentages are out 100.

I can recognise percentages in pictorial representations.

I can reason and problem solve with percentages.

Vocabulary

Percentages

Fractions

Whole

Bar model

Hundred square

1) Watch this video:  a brief overview about percentages: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/znjqtfr/articles/z8ws3k7

2) Watch this video:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=JeVSmq1Nrpw watch until 4:03.  You don’t need to watch whole video as it will not be needed for this lesson.

## FLUENCY

Task 2- reasoning and problem solving

Now that you have mastered the idea of the percentages, let’s try to really challenge you mathematicians.

Your turn: Pick a level that works for you. Try to challenge yourselves at home.

## REASONING AND PROBLEM SOLVING

UPDATE: Thank you for the comments so far on the Google feedback form.  I have saved the maths as PDFs as well so the layout should hopefully be ok if you are opening them from phones.
Thank you EL, AT, RB, EMF, JS, HH and EW for completing the quiz! I'm glad to hear you are finding it easy!

## This question from Monday can be tricky. Remember if 3 parts out of 10 are shaded that is the same as 3/10 = 30/100 = 30%.

Tuesday

First warm up! Try the flashback 4!

Fractions to percentages

Today we are going to learn about converting fractions to percentages.

Remember tos:

I can explain what equivalent fractions and percentages are.

I can recognise percentages and fractions in pictorial representations.

I can convert a fraction into a percentage by making equivalent fractions.

I can reason and problem solve with equivalent fractions and percentages.

Vocabulary

Percentages

Fractions

Whole

Convert

Equivalent

First, watch the video below:

## Fractions to percentages - Corbettmaths

Corbettmaths - This video shows how to change fractions to percentages

The first method in the video we should use (making it an equivalent fraction out of 100).

Ex. 7/10 x 10= 70/100 = 70 %

If there are difficult problems than the second method could be used.

For today's work concentrate on the first method.  Make equivalent fractions out of 100.

Your turn! There are three different levels for you to have a go!

## FLUENCY WORK - PDF & WORD VERSIONS

Task 2- reasoning and problem solving

Now that you have mastered converting fractions to percentages, let’s try to really challenge you mathematicians. There are three levels for you to choose.

## HC - Great understanding!

Well done to AT, RB, IS, AG, SA, OS and EW for completing the maths quiz today! Nice to see that some of you had a couple attempts to get the correct answers!

27.01.21 - WEDNESDAY

First warm up! Try the flashback 4

Equivalent Fractions, decimals and percentages

Today, we are going to learn about equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages.  Specifically, if we have one and need to convert to the other two.

Remember tos:

I can explain what equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages are.

I can recognise percentages, fractions and decimals in pictorial representations.

I can convert a fraction into a percentage by making equivalent fractions.

I can convert a fraction into a decimal by making an equivalent fraction of 10 or 100.

I can convert a decimal into a percentage by multiplying by 100.

I can reason and solve problems with equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages.

Miss Stephens explaining.

Your turn! Choose a level that works for you.

## FLUENCY

Task 2- reasoning and problem solving

Now that you have mastered the idea of equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages, let’s try to really challenge you with some problems!

## Impressive maths work Year 6!! I can clearly see that all of you are able to make the links between fractions, decimals and percentages! Well done to those of you who have done challenges and more than one level too!! (Wednesday work)

WEDNESDAY QUIZ

Thank you RB, EW, AT, AG, IS, DB, SS and SA for completing today's maths quiz! Great work!

I have received some comments about needing more support with division and we will go over that next week.

28.01.21 -  Thursday

First warm up! Try the flashback 4

Order fractions, decimals and percentages

Today, we are going to learn about ordering fractions, decimals and percentages. We will look at how to compare them and then how to put them in an order such as ascending (smallest to largest) or descending (largest to smallest).

Remember tos:

I can recognise percentages, fractions and decimals in pictorial representations.

I can convert a fraction into a percentage by making equivalent fractions.

I can convert a fraction and a percentage into a decimal by dividing.

I can order fractions, decimals and percentages by the size.

I can compare fractions, decimals and percentages.

I can reason and solve problems with ordering fractions, decimals and percentages.

## HC- Great job at ordering fractions, decimals and percentages today. Be sure to convert the fractions out of 10 or out of 100 first before getting the percentage.

29.01.21 - Friday

Happy Friday!! Last maths lesson for this week! Before we start, I'd just like to say a huge WELL DONE to all year 6 for being rockstars! You've all worked really hard and persevered as there was some tough challenges this week!

First warm up! Try the flashback 4

Today, we are going to learn about finding a percentage of an amount.  This is usually seen in sales!  A lot of stores will say 50% off or 25% off.  But how do we know if those are good deals? Well, we learn about finding percentages of these amounts!

Percentages of amounts

Remember tos:

I can find 50% by halving the amount (dividing by 2).

I can find 25% by dividing by 4.

I can find 10% by dividing by 10.

I can find 1% by dividing by 100.

I can reason and solve problems with percentages of amounts.

Vocabulary

Percentages

Divide

## MORE CHALLENGES! (The fluency challenge has answers to check your work)

Friday quiz

Thank you RB, RW, EW, AT, HH, EF, JS, IS, AShoi and AG for completing the quiz! I'm glad you're all finding today's math easy! Well done to all of you! Great scores too!

(Also, if you don't have a printer, you can always open the PDF or Word files and write into them and then send the documents back!)
