Friday 24th April

Good morning all! Here's today's Terrific Tens!

Day 5 of graphs and charts


Today I'd like you to get a bit more creative with maths. I'd like you to collect some data of your own from around your home and garden. This can be absolutely anything you like! How many different types of shoe your family own, DVD categories, types of teddy bear, animals, categories of book, do a survey asking about people's favourite chocolate bar - anything you like! If your'e feeling adventurous and have a thermometer somewhere, you could track the temperature across a day!


You will need to prepare a table to collect your data in before you start (I know we're not at school but please use a ruler!) to make it easier for you to record data accurately. I would then like you to represent this data in a graph or chart. If you have measured anything over time, you will need a line graph.Otherwise a bar chart or even pie chart will work. 


I am aware that you probably don't have any squared paper so I am not looking for my usual standard of accuracy here!



Thursday 23rd April

Here are today's  terrific tens to get you started!

Today's task is to answer some statistics questions in your books. I have attached some challenge cards below and would like you to choose at least three of them to answer. (you can do them all if you like but three is the minimum!) The answers are at the end again so no cheating!

Wednesday 22nd April

Here's this morning's warm up...

Welcome to Wednesday's task! Today we are revising pie charts! As on Monday, there are three levels of worksheet attached below. Choose the one that suits you best and complete in your books! Again, the answers are at the end! No cheating!

Tuesday 21st April

Good morning. Today I'm just going to give you some terrific tens to do. How quickly can you do it?

Monday 20th April

Good Morning everyone! Firstly, an apology - I have only just realised that the work I set on Friday didn't post! Lucky you! I will try harder to double check everything this week! Here are your terrific tens to get you started on a Monday morning...

Have a look at the worksheet below. There are three levels of difficulty - decide which one bests suits you and have a go! The answers are at the end - I trust you not to cheat!

Calculating Angle Day 4


Today I would like you to use what you have revised this week to write your own 'SATs style' angle questions. You will probably need to include diagrams in which case remember to use a ruler! I would like you to write a minimum of 4 questions AND show me how you would work out the answers. 

Wednesday 15th April

Calculating angle day 3

Today I would like you to complete the attached sheets. There are three sheets which get progressively more difficult. You will need to decide where to start and stop. Some of you will be able to compltee all three in a reasonable time, some of you will only be able to complete the first one. \use your common sense and if you've been working for longer than an hour - stop!

Calculating angle day 2

Today you will be looking at finding the missing angles in triangles. I would like everybody to attempt questions 1 and 2 of the sheet attached below. If you would like a bit of a challenge then you could try question three. If you would like a real challenge then you could have a go at question 4. You will need to look up the meaning of the word 'congruent' in order to help you! 



Angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees.

Isosceles triangles have two equal sides and two equal angles.

Equilateral triangles have three equal sides and three equal angles. 

Tuesday 14th April 2020

Here's today's starter for ten...

Below, is a link to a set of questions that will help you revise work we have done this year on finding missing angles. You will need to remember the following facts:

  • 180 degrees on a straight line
  • 360 degrees in angles around a point
  • 90 degrees in a right angle
  • 180 degrees in a triangle
  • 360 degrees in a quadrilateral
  • opposite angles are equal


Write the answers in your home learning book. Do not use a protractor! If you want to check your wrk, the answers are included at the end - I trust you not to cheat!

Calculating missing angles

Friday 27th March

Two tasks today... start with your' terrific ten'.

Then, use what you have learned about 3d shapes and nets to create something Easter themed.You might choose to design a box/packaging for an Easter egg, a container in which you could put eggs during an egg hunt or even an Easter holiday home for the Easter Bunny! Be creative! Take a photo of what you come up with - I a trying to find a way for us to share some of our work. 


Thursday 26th March

Here's today's 'terrific ten' to get you warmed up!

Wednesday 25th March

Have a go at these terrific tens (I did it!) to check you haven't forgotten everything already!


 Good morning! Having revised your knowledge and understanding of 3d shapes and their nets, your task is to accurately draw (yes, using a ruler and actually measuring things!) the nets of three different 3d shapes. You could then cut them out and try to construct them. Remember to include tabs if you are going to build your shapes or you will have no way of sticking them together!


Try and do at least 15 minutes arithmetic practice - I'm working on getting the Terrific Tens sheets uploaded for you - bear with me! 


Take a picture of your finished shape.



Look at the uploaded powerpoint to help you revise what you know about 3d shapes. Complete the worksheet in your home learning books.
