Friday 10th July 
Happy Friday to you all! Today we're combining maths and art by making reflective lettering and patterns. Watch the video for three different activities to have a go at.  As you watch, the tasks increase in challenge so you can choose which one to do or you have a go at them all! Don't forget to share your work - we'd love to see what you do!

Reflections - Maths and Art

Further Ideas for Inspiration

Thursday 9th July 

Good morning Y5 and Y6. Today we're doing some work on reflections of shapes in a mirror line.  Watch the video for an explanation of the learning and then choose from the tasks below.  See you tomorrow when we will be drawing some reflections combining our maths and art skills.


LO to reflect shapes in a mirror line

I can remember to

Use the grid lines and squares to help count the distance from the mirror line

Place a mirror on the mirror line to check the image of the reflected shape

Mark each corner of the shape

Join up to corners using a ruler to make the shape

Wednesday 8th July
To warm up your brains ready for maths, use some number cards or playing cards to complete the activity below. There are 3 levels of challenge. 

Warm Up (Level 2)

Here is a less challenging version of the warm up

Warm up level 1

Here is a more challenging version of the warm up

Warm up level 3


LO To find the prime factors of numbers

I can remember to 

Use the factor tree diagram

Use the prime number reference poster

Find the factors of a number

Continue find the factors until they are prime numbers

First of all, watch this video which explains prime factors.

Prime Factors (Intro and Factor Trees)

Now watch the video below which models the tasks for today.

Very impressive work shared by these Whizzy Workers.  It's excellent to see you're working hard with your maths at home. Well done!
Love the drawing of Mully too!


Your warm-up today is to complete a Number of the Day on the link below.  Select the number that gives you the right amount of challenge - it shouldn't be too hard or too easy!  The video models one being completed.

Number of the Day


Good morning Y5 and Y6. Today we're learning about prime numbers.  Watch this video to recap what a prime number is.

LO To identify prime numbers

I can remember to:

Use the terms, 'prime' and 'composite'

Use my knowledge of times tables

Find all the factors of a number

Give reasons for my answers



Prime number - a number that only has itself and 1 as factors

Composite number - a number with more than 2 factors

Factor - a number that divides exactly into another number

Factor pair  - pair of numbers that can be multiplied together to make another number

Watch the video below to see some of the tasks modelled.

Monday 6th July

Excellent reasoning skills from this Whizzy Worker! Well done and thank you for sharing it with us.

Good Morning Y5 and Y6.  Today please start off with some 'Where's Mully?'.  You could time yourself and work through all 3 levels!  The video is the model from last week in case you need a recap.


Where's Mully?

Level 1

Level 2

Level 3


Today we're continuing with our work on factors from last week.  If you need reminding about what a factor is, watch the video on the link below.

LO To solve problems involving factors

I can remember to:

Find pairs of numbers (factors) that make a multiple

Use the inverse to find missing factors and multiples

Work in stages to solve a problem


Multiple - extended time tables. For example the multiples of 8 are: 8, 16, 24, 32 and so on

Factor - a factor is a number that divides exactly into another number. For example 1, 2, 4 and 8 are all factors of 8.

Factor pair - a factor pair that can be multiplied together to make another number. The factor pairs of 8 are: 1 and 8, 2 and 4

Product - the number you get when you multiple 2 numbers together. For example the product of 2 and 4 is 8
