# Week Beginning 25th January 2021

## FLUENCY

## REASONING AND PROBLEM SOLVING

## Great work mathematicians! I am pleased to see you all challenging yourselves to work on harder tasks! Way to go with doing the reasoning questions as well. Well done to JB and KP for completing multiple levels!

## More maths work from EW and HC! Good reasoning skills!

## 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%.

## FLUENCY WORK - PDF & WORD VERSIONS

## REASONING AND PROBLEM SOLVING - WORD & PDF VERSIONS

## Amazing maths work!! I can see lots of you have challenged yourselves and have completed the reasoning and problem solving questions! Some excellent reasoning shown! (Tuesday)

## Great maths work by EW! Good reasoning!

## HC - Great understanding!

## Helpful tips!

## FLUENCY

## REASONING & PROBLEM SOLVING

## CHALLENGES

## EW- WOW! Super understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages! Super reasoning! All of your work is correct!

## HC- Super work today! Good understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages! Make sure to multiply both parts of the fraction. 1/2 = 50/100 =0.5= 50%

## 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)

## Helpful tips.

## FLUENCY WORK

## REASONING & PROBLEM SOLVING

## CHALLENGES - 3 LEVELS (BRONZE/LEVEL 1, SILVER/LEVEL 2, GOLD/LEVEL 3)

## Impressive maths from Year 6...again!! Well done! (Thursday)

## EW- Great job at your reasoning questions! Double check your equivalent fractions and percentages. 4/8 = 50%

## 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.

## Helpful tips..

## We can find fractions of amounts using bar models.

## The important stuff!! Write this down! click to enlarge

## An example.(click to enlarge)

## TASK 1 - FLUENCY

## TASK 2 - REASONING & PROBLEM SOLVING

## FLUENCY CHALLENGE

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

## EW - Great work today! Excellent use of the methods to find fractions of amount! As well, great reasoning!

## Well done Year 6! Ending the week with a bang! Great work!! I'm impressed that you are pushing yourselves to do the challenges as well! Shout out to KP for completing multiple levels!

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.

__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.

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!

__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

Bar model

Hundred square

First, watch the video below:

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.

__Task 1 – fluency__

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

__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.

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.

__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).

__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

Half

Quarter

There are 3 different levels for you to choose.

__Task 2- reasoning and problem solving__

Have a go at some challenges. There are three different levels for you to choose.

**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!)
