Half term is here! It's time to take a little step back from all of the hard work you have been doing....although not too far and relax a little.

Each day there will be a sheet of sums to complete. I would like you to complete these on a daily basis starting with week 1- session 1. There will be five sessions to complete this week.

Bore da! Many of you are keeping up to date with your MyMaths and attempting all of the set activities. Da iawn! However, this week we ask if you could spend some time looking at the scores you achieved for set activities. If you found yourself in the bottom of the 'Learning Pit' on certain set tasks and a little confused this is a good time to focus on the lessons that go alongside the set tasks. 

 

Today I would like you to recap learning on division. You will find the Whiterose worksheet below and the link to the video. You may choose your level of challenge. Along with this, there will be a selection of short challenges. I would like you to complete one of these. Again, you may select your own level of challenge.
