Miss Vorster and Mr Rankin’s Maths:
WALT (We are learning to): add and subtract decimal numbers
This week we are continuing to work on our understanding of decimal numbers. More specifically, we will be adding and subtracting decimal numbers – first with the same number of decimal places and then with different numbers of decimal places.
The following website has all the activities for the week set out for each day - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/ (Summer Term Week 2) and also gives you an answer sheet. You will see that there is a short video clip for your child to watch which will support their learning. Then you can either print the activity or get your child to simply copy the answers neatly into their orange workbook. (Note: you can also get the activities on the school website in the Year Five area).
On Friday, your child can visit http://www.math-play.com/subtracting-decimals-game/subtracting-decimals-soccer.html and play the subtracting decimals football game to test their understanding. Feel free to screen shot their score and send it to your child’s class teacher via Class Dojo if you wish.
Miss Vorster and Mr Rankin’s Arithmetic:
As for previous weeks, you will find two Arithmetic tests on the school website. In total, there are sixty questions. Your child may choose to do a whole test all in one go, or may prefer to answer a set number of questions daily. It is entirely up to you!
