This week's lessons focus on Algebra. We did cover algebra in the Spring term so it should be familiar to you but if you have any problems, please do email me and I will help you. Remember that if a number is NEXT TO a letter, that means multiply
e.g. 2y = 2 x y
This week's maths lessons are about percentages! Remember that a % means out of 100, so when converting between fractions, decimals and percentages, try to put them into /100 by multiplying the bottom by the same number as the top. For example:
And remember when finding percentages of amounts:
50% = a half
25% = a quarter
To find 10% you divide the number by 10 e.g. 10% of 80 (80÷10) = 8
To find 5% you can halve 10%
To find 1% you divide the number by 100 e.g. 1% of 53 (53÷100) = 0.53
You can use these facts to find any percentage of any amount!
For example to find 16% of a number:
1) Find 10% by dividing by 10
2) Halve this to find 5%
3) Find 1% by dividing by 100
4) Add these amounts together (10% + 5% + 1% = 16%)
We are still using the White Rose Hub resources however you will now need to download them directly from this page rather than visiting their website. The first document contains 4 links to the videos and the worksheets and answers are below. Hope this makes sense and any questions, as always, please don't hesitate to email me!
There is also an arithmetic paper to complete.
This week, please complete the next set of lessons (Summer Term – Week 3 (w/c 4th May)) on the White Rose home learning website: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
This week focuses on everybody's favourite - Fractions! The key thing to remember is that when simplifying fractions, whatever you do to the top you also need to do to the bottom. For example simplifying 3/15, I know that both 3 and 15 can be divided by 3 meaning I can simplify the fraction to 1/5 by dividing both the top (numerator) and the bottom (denominator) by 3.
Similarly, when you need to add and subtract fractions which have DIFFERENT denominators, you will first need to make them have the same denominator. The easiest way to do this is try to think of the lowest number that both denominators fit into (lowest common denominator). For example 3/5 and 8/12, you need to think what is the lowest number that both 5 and 12 go into. In this case, it would be 60. Then remember, whatever you do to the bottom, you do to the top!
Any problems or questions please do email me and I will try my best to help you
This week, please complete the next set of lessons (Summer Term – Week 2 (w/c 27th April)) on the White Rose home learning website: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
You should be able to use the knowledge you already have (Angles inside a triangle add up to 180º and angles inside a quadrilateral add up to 360º) to extend your knowledge to learn about interior angles of other shapes. Make sure you watch the videos carefully before trying to complete the daily activities as the videos will help with your understanding. As always, please do email me if you are struggling with anything.
Below is an arithmetic test to complete as well. It is split up into daily sections so you could complete a few questions a day rather than trying to do the whole paper at once - up to you!
*Please note, from now on Maths work will be uploaded on a Monday so you can do a lesson per day.
Please go to the White Rose Home Learning page: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
Complete this week's lessons (Summer Term – Week 1 (w/c 20 April)). They recap what we covered during Spring term. Remember that angles that are opposite are equal and angles in a triangle add up to 180º.
Here is an arithmetic paper to do as well, I will upload the answers at the end of the week. You may want to do a few questions a day or do it all at once - up to you!
Don't forget you can email me if you struggle with any parts of the maths and I will do my best to help you.

This should take you to a website. On this website, please can you complete the Week 2 lessons. These should be familiar as it is what we were learning about in class before school closed. Each lesson has a short video and then a set of questions to go with it. There are also answers so you can mark each one after you have finished.
Please email me if you have any problems.
Here are the answers for this week's maths.
