Miss Green's Maths Group:
Welcome to your Maths Home Learning Page.
Remember: Just do what you can and don't worry or get stressed about the work. Make sure that you have lots of breaks and time to relax. Look at the Home Learning Letter on the Class 6 page for other ideas and Maths websites.
Try not to worry. Keep safe and keep washing your hands ! Although we are not all together as a school for now, we can all stay in touch. You can keep in contact with friends on your phone and you can email the staff when you need to.
I will keep adding new things to the top of the page but remember that YOU are much more important than any Maths lesson.
You have worked incredibly hard and I am super-proud of all of you. The progress that you have made since September is amazing because you have worked so hard.
Take care, stay safe.
I'm sending lots of love to each of you and to your families and loved ones.
love Miss Green x
You can email me at: email@example.com
Happy Easter everyone.
I hope you have a great Easter holiday.
I know that this will be a very different holiday for us all but try to keep positive.
Doing exercise, varying your day, getting fresh air (safely) and trying to keep busy and active will help you to feel more positive.
Remember to talk to somebody if you are feeling stressed or unhappy.
You can still do any of the investigations, challenges and work if you want to but all the teachers are giving you some Learning Log project ideas for the Easter holiday too.
Can you do a brilliant Learning Log with a little bit of Maths in it ?
Of course you can ! There are some ideas below.
You can still email during the Easter holiday if you need to.
Lots of love to you and all your family. Take really good care of yourselves.
Big love, Miss Green x
We’re still all in it together.
In a Learning Log you can write, list, draw, design – you can do anything you like.
Here are some ideas that you could choose from:
Biggest, Best Party Ever !
We can’t party at the moment but we can plan an amazing party with guest list, celebrity invitations, music playlists, invitation designs, food ideas, what you would wear, decorations, location of the party, room design, party theme, welcome banner, design little party favours (gifts) you would give out...
Bit of Maths in it: Look online or in a catalogue to find out the cost of some of the things you will need (or the total cost). Add up the total cost for different categories such as food or your outfit. You can set a budget (spending limit) if you want to and see if you can stay within the budget you have set. Make the prices up yourself if you can’t get online much.
Or ‘My Dream Job’
Outline your dream job, roles and responsibilities, what training or qualifications you would need, why you want this job, who your dream team of colleagues would be and what you would wear on your first day to make a good impression.
Bit of Maths in it: Look online to see what you might get paid for that job in a year. Work out how much money that would be per month. Work out the cost of your first day outfit by looking at clothes online or work out the cost of any equipment that you would need. You can set a budget (spending limit) if you want to and see if you can stay within the budget you have set. Make the prices up yourself if you can’t get online much.
Or Design ‘My perfect bedroom’ or ‘My home gym’
Bit of Maths in it: Look online to work out the total cost of what you have bought. Make the prices up yourself if you can’t get online much.

Thursday, 2nd April 2020
Good morning peeps. Keep moving, keep active, keep dancing...
Big happy birthday and big birthday love to Joseph for yesterday.
All the answer sheets are now at the bottom of this week’s work.
Below is a quick and simple video challenge to go with your work this week.
It’s called The Man’s Head. It’s fine if you are just doing the investigations/challenges instead of all the work sheets. Email me your answer and you'll get a trophy on our web page.
I need telling off ! Somebody tell me off. I start nearly every sentence in the video with the word ‘So.’ Not good Miss Green.
Remember: Keep positive, keep talking, keep active, keep dancing - we’re all in it together.
Love Miss Green x

Good morning peeps.
Well done to Jayne and Porcia for persevering with the grid investigation from last week. Keep going !
I know some of you are finding it hard to email photos but, if you can, I’d love to see any Maths you’ve done in your book or a photo of you working. At the end of this week’s work section, I’ve started putting the answer sheets for this week- I’ll keep adding them. As promised, I’ve added a couple more farm photos below, I’ll add more another day. Still making me smile.
Remember- try to find positives in each day.
Keep emailing/texting/talking to each other- we’re all in it together.
Love Miss Green x

I hope that you had a lovely weekend including fun with your family.
Week 2 of Home Learning starts here.
I'm putting 5 Maths lessons, an easier investigation and a simple challenge for you to do this week.
Remember, you can email if you need help but don't worry about things you have forgotten or if you can't do something, just do what you can.
I will keep adding answer sheets underneath this week's work.
Keep exercising and trying to get fresh air when you can
Love Miss Green x
Week beginning 30th March 2020
Revising Averages 1 (Simple averages)
Word Problems (Area, Perimeter, Volume)
A simple challenge: Petal Sequence
So this took a long time to record because I had to keep starting again because a friend from my childhood kept deliberately interrupting and shouting over the fence ! I would like to say he's a very silly (but lovely) boy but he's actually now a 51 year old man !
It's not a difficult challenge but be careful with the adding because if any of your additions are wrong, you won't get the right answer of course.

You have done a week of Home Learning - well done everybody. It's been lovely to hear from you by email. I hope you managed to go outside safely and be in the sun sometimes over the last couple of days.
I hope you have a lovely weekend- try to relax as much as possible.
I thought I'd put a couple of photographs of our farm visit on here- thinking about it still makes me smile and I hope it makes you smile too. I'll add some more next week.
Love Miss Green x
