During the tenth week, the children are welcome to have a go at the following; 


MATHS - Measurement (Time)


Plan


These plans are particularly useful and there is a lot more to them then first appears. Have a look at the whole plan.

Success Criteria
Activities


Children can continue to access the mymaths.co.uk and educationcity.com websites to consolidate their learning.




ARITHMETIC
For these tests, children should have around 35 - 40 minutes to complete it. I would then normally go through the answers with the children and show them if and where they have gone wrong. Here is the test for this week;



PROBLEM SOLVING
This is a set of problem solving questions. Please try the first 10 questions this week. Once they have had a go, I would then go through the questions and explain the answers and if they have got any wrong, explain why.


(The script is in the same document as the test)


TIMES TABLES
It would be important for the children to keep up with their times tables. If you would like to know where they are up to, please email me.



These websites are excellent for maths games too;
