Follow this link to your learning for this week. You will be covering a range of topics which includes multiplying, diving with remainders and calculating perimeters!
1) Look at the shapes below.
Head over to Nrich and have a go at the interactive countdown game. This game is a simple at home version of the TV favourite and can be played with any number of players.
In this game you will use the four standard operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) to hit the target number.
Or play this version...
What you need to play:
4 ‘large number’ cards with the numbers 25, 50, 75 and 100 on them
A set of cards with the digits 1-10 on them, with at least two cards for each number
Watch the following video which explains how to play.
How to play:
Step 1: Set out 4 large number cards (25, 50, 75 and 100) face down and mixed up.
Step 2: Do the same with the 1 – 10 cards, making sure you have at least 2 cards for each number.
Step 3: Players take it in turns to select one of the big number cards or one of the small number cards, until there are 6 cards laid out all together.
Step 4: Someone who is playing the game needs to generate a 3-digit number. This can be by throwing a dice, or selecting cards from a pile of 0 to 9 cards.
Step 5: Once the number has been generated, turn over the six cards and players have to try and get to that total using any of the six number cards and any of the four operations.
Each card can only be used once and the winner is the first person to reach the total, or the player who is closest after a set length of time.
The game can be adapted to make it easier, by choosing the numbers on the cards carefully and aiming to reach a 2-digit number, rather than a 3-digit number.
