Log into My Maths for today’s lesson and activities
Also use this to play extra maths games for either My Maths or Abacus.
Also, some of you had a little trouble with yesterday's fraction learning (it was quite tricky to be fair as there were so many fractions and you had to find a common denominator first). I've added some more resources (see below) which should break the problem down a bit more for you. There are also PPTs which might explain it a little more too. I've put them in the order to do it in starting form the easiest and then working up to yesterday's maths task. I just want to say a massive well done to those children who tried and tried again until they got the result they were happy with. It shows really determination, resilience and courage!
Complete the passive mini test from the attached resources.

The summer term usually is packed full of activities based on your transition to secondary school, aimed at getting you prepared, discussing anxieties and questions and sharing experiences. Although we are not at school, there are still loads we can be doing to help you through this time.
The first thing, and the most important thing, is to talk. Talk to us (via Dojo or when we ring you at home), talk to your parents. Talk to your friends. You will all have your own questions and worries, and I promise you, that whatever it is, someone (probably thousands of someones) has had the same question or worry before you, including us teachers, your parents, your older brothers and sisters. So anything you may be worried about, or any question you may have (and there’s no such thing as a small question here!) write it down and talk to someone about it.
This time is also an extremely exciting time: secondary schools are magical places where you can begin to explore different subjects at a level much deeper than in primary school (for example, you get to use Bunsen Burners in science! So jealous!!).
Today’s task is to go through the Powerpoint presentation on transitioning. There are questions for you to think about so try and make some notes about them 😊
