Today’s learning……..

Year 5 and 6 maths

How did you get on with the nrich challenge yesterday? Caitlin managed to get up to 98!

Complete this challenge called ‘A square of numbers’ where you will need to work systematically.

If you want to challenge yourself, why not find different solutions and justify that you haven’t missed any out. This is where working systemically is important. Then, you could make up your own problem which uses different operations around a square in a different order.

It would be great if you could email me (nataliebeatson@spherefederation.org) your own challenges and some of the children in school could have a go at solving them!

Reading: retrieval

Watch and complete this video lesson. 

You’ll need these questions for your main task. And, this link to the whole First News paper for the challenge.

Design Technology: mechanical systems

Follow this BBC Bitesize lesson all about mechanical systems and you could even have a go at designing and making your own moving toy! If you do, please take a photo and email me your picture. We will have a go at making some in school too- I will post some of our creations on the class news page.
