# Maths – Flip, Turn, Slide (Transformations)

### You will need a piece of coloured paper and a blank A4 piece of paper to start. Then fold it as they suggest and follow the instructions to create your flipbook.

After that you will be completing MG16 Flip, Slide, Turn worksheet and complete the section in your Symmetry Booklet to practise these transformations!

Have fun!  🙂

# Maths – Introducing Division

Last week I introduced Division, talking about how it is the reverse or opposite of Multiplication, just like Subtraction is the reverse or opposite of Addition.

You need to remember your magic triangle and how to use Number Families to be able to write 4 number sentences using your 3 numbers.

Last week we looked at using number families to work with Division Facts of 2 and 3

and today we will be using number families to work with Division Facts of 5 and 10.

# MATHS – CHANCE AND PROBABILITY

Today in Maths you may be learning about PROBABILITY.  We spin a dice, and think it’s pretty random what turns up, but there is a mathematical way of working out the probability of what it will land on.

# Maths – 3D objects

Welcome back everybody!  So lovely to see you all fresh after the Easter break. 🙂

NEWS – This term we will be starting partner newstelling.  Everybody will be telling their news every Monday and there won’t be a weekly news roster any more.  🙂

Today in Maths we are going to be investigating 3D objects – their names, their properties and their differences.

Challenge: Look around you this week and see how many of these shapes you can see in real life objects and buildings around you?

# Maths – Addition and Subtraction Facts

Now that we’ve remembered how to create number fact families, using our magic triangle to write 4 number sentences: 2 addition and 2 subtraction, we’re ready to explore NA8 – Addition and Subtraction Facts today.

Practise testing yourself at home until you know them automatically without working each one out.  This will make all your maths calculations so much easier! 🙂

# FACT FAMILIES – addition and subtraction

We’ve worked really hard at learning the place value of numbers up to the ten thousands!  Well done!  🙂

Today we’ll be looking at FACT FAMILIES.  It’s important to know about these, so that when you have a word problem and can’t work it out, you will remember your fact families and be able to work out the answer you need.

You only need 3 numbers and you can create 4 different number sums using only those 3 numbers.

After watching the video, you are going to write your own number FACT FAMILIES on the worksheets you are given.

# ROTATING MATHS GROUPS and SPELLING

This morning in Rotating Maths Groups, we will start using our STUDYLADDER onlne learning accounts.  You will receive your logins (1 for your Maths Spiral, 1 to take home).  Parents – this year, Studyladder is giving our class free unlimited access to their accounts from school and from home, so students can do activities at home too. 🙂

Have fun working through your maths and collecting points – do 5 tasks before changing your avatar.  🙂

SPELLING – You will be working on your Spelling Workbook today during Rotating Groups when you are at DESK.  Practise hard – your first spelling test of your 25 words is tomorrow (THURSDAY)!

TEACHER – Today you will be working with the teacher going over your ODDS & EVENS investigations you started on Monday. Make sure you learn the rule, then you can begin the iMaths booklet.

# MEASURING VOLUME – using water

This morning Miss Keating will be leading you in a lesson where you will be measuring the volume of water held by different containers.

This video helps to explain some of the things you need to know.

# Why Maths Matters!

Many of you might wonder why Maths is so important?  Why do you need it?  How will it help you later in life?  After all, isn’t that why we have computers and calculators and other technology?

Listen to what Eddie Woo (amazingly brilliant high school Maths teacher with his own WooTube channel dedicated to Maths) has to say about that.  I only want to show you part of this video interview, where he explains the importance of Maths. [Your Mum and Dad might want to watch this too. 🙂 ]
