# Week Beginning 8th February 2021

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

We are going to be learning about measures!

Monday   08/02/21

First warm up! Try the flashback 4!

(Note we haven't covered algebra yet so don't worry if you are unsure about the questions with the letters in them)

As well you can always warm up with TT Rockstars!

Units of measurement

Remember tos:

I can explain what measures are.

I can explain that cm, mm, mm and km are used to measure length.

I can explain that kg, g and tonnes are used to measure mass.

I can explain that ml and l are used to measure liquids.

I can understand and explain when to use an appropriate measure.

I can reason and problem solve with measures.

Vocabulary

MeasurementWe use the words like taller and shorter to compare the heights and words like heavier and lighter to compare the weights.0:35 Units of Measuremen...

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

## FLUENCY WORK - 3 levels - Level 1 (D), Level 2 (E), Level 3(GD)

Task 2- reasoning and problem solving

Now that you have mastered measures, 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 - Level 1 (D), Level 2 (E), Level 3 (GD)

Maths quiz

Thank you RB, AT, AG, IS, PS, DB, EL, EW, KB, OS, EV, JB, JA, KP, HC, HH, AS and JS for completing the quiz! I gave feedback so hopefully you're tabs are still open to see it. Or, you can always do another.

## SA- WOW! Great work at understanding different types of measures and estimating them!! Well done for completing all levels too!!

Watch the video below for an introduction to the metric system. A little recap for some!

## Math Antics - Intro to the Metric System

The following three videos will show you how to convert lengths, mass and capacity (liquids).

## Converting Metric Units for Length

Corbettmaths - A video that explains how to convert between millimetres, centimetres, metres and kilometres.

## Converting Metric Units for Mass

Corbettmaths - This video explains how to convert between grams, kilograms and tonnes.

## Converting Metric Units for Capacity

Corbettmaths - This video explains how to convert between metric units for capacity/volume. For instance millilitres, centilitres and litres.

## USE THESE TO HELP WITH CONVERSIONS. In the fluency work I have already pasted them for you to help. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) (I don't know why they're so small?)

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 metric measures, let’s try to really challenge you mathematicians.

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

Tuesday maths quiz

Thank you PS, AT, RB,RW, EW, DB, JS, EM, AS and  KP for completing the quiz so far! I have responded with feedback for you all! But glad to see most of you are finding it easy!

Note: You do not have to print the work out. If it is easier at home you can just do the calculations on a piece of paper or on the word document and send them back to me! No worries!

## EW- Great fluency work! It's all correct!! As well super reasoning! You got this!

## Year 6 calculate with measures

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

## FLUENCY WORK

Task 2- reasoning and problem solving

Now that you have done some calculations, let’s try to really challenge you mathematicians.

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

## REASONING & PROBLEM SOLVING WORK

NOTE: If anyone is struggling with multiplying and dividing by 10 ,100 or 1000 or just needs a recap look at the first week on the blog and I have made some videos.

I will put them below for you too.

Converting miles and kilometres

Remember tos:

I can understand that miles are larger than kilometres.

I can explain that there is 5 miles to approximately equal to 8 kilometres.

Vocabulary

Measure

Convert

Approximately equal to

Kilometres (km)

Miles (m)

Inches

Feet

gallons

pints

pounds

ounces

Watch the videos below:

NOTE: That for lengths we just need to know about inches and feet.  Ignore the bits about yards and miles.

NOTE: That for the mass (weight) video we need to know about ounces, pounds and stones. You can ignore the bit about tonnes.

## Converting Imperial units for length

Corbettmaths - This video explains how to convert between inches, feet, yards and miles.Practice Questions: https://corbettmaths.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/...

## Converting Imperial units for capacity

## WORKED EXAMPLES

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

## FLUENCY WORK - 3 different levels

Task 2- reasoning and problem solving

Now that you have mastered converting imperial measures, let’s try to really challenge you mathematicians.

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

Today, level 3 is quite challenging.

## REASONING & PROBLEM SOLVING

Friday quiz

Thanks RB, AT, PS, EW, KP, TS, IS, HH, JB, JA, and RW for completing the quiz.  I have replied back you. If you didn't see my reply please submit another quiz and I will be happy to help.
