Week beginning 08.06.20

08.06.20 - This week we are going to be interpreting information in timetables and calculating durations (for example journey times). Don't forget to draw yourself a timeline to help with your working out if needed. This can help you visualise a problem and you can jump on or back in manageable 'chunks' of time. You should scroll down the attached document and complete the questions on the 2 and 3 star worksheets. The answers are provided for you to check your work when you have finished.

09.06.20 - Today, I would like you to apply your knowledge of time and calculating durations to solving a series of word problems. Read each question carefully and draw time number lines to help you jump on and back in hours/minutes. The answers are provided for you to check your solutions. A very simple example is provided for you below. Your calculations will be a bit more challenging, but this is a very clear example of how to use a timeline to support your working out.

Example:  

Mrs Jones goes to the supermarket to do her weekly shop. She sets off at 8:40 am and gets back home at 11:00 am. How long was Mrs Jones out doing her shopping?

She was out 2 hours and 20 minutes  She was out 2 hours and 20 minutes.

10.06.20 - Today, I would like you to use your knowledge of data and time to answer the questions in the booklets attached below. Start with the level 4 work. This has lots of different types of questions and you will be expected to apply your understanding to reasoning and problem solving. The level 5 questions are a little more challenging and you can move onto these as an extension activity when you have finished. There is a lot of work here, so you can complete this over two days (today and tomorrow). Try your best and check your answers once you have finished to see how well you have applied your skills.

11.06.20 - Just a little reminder that today you will be completing the questions on 'Time and Calendar' set yesterday. Remember to read instructions carefully and use a timeline for working out if you need to.

12.06.20 - It's maths mystery Friday! Today you will be applying a wide range of maths skills to solving The Mystery of the Brilliant Breakfast, so fine tune your detective skills and off you go! The answers are provided at the end of the document so you can check your solution.
