240 divided by 4 = 60.

Thursday 17th October

 

Spellings

No specific spellings this week but we will be testing all of the Year 5/ 6 words which you will find in your reading record and there's a copy below as well. Choose the ones you need to work on and learn those. 

 

English

If you haven't completed the reading comprehension from last week, make sure that it is completed and handed in by Friday 1st November. 

 

Maths

You have a problem solving task this week. 

We have been working on square numbers. 

Can you put the numbers 1-17 in a line so that the numbers that are next to each other add up to a square number?

How many can you get in a line together? 

Can you put all of them in the line?

It may be easier to make cards for the numbers 1 - 17 and line them up and rearrange. 

For example; I can put 17 and 8 next to each other in my line because they total 25. I would then need to put 1 next to the 8 to make 9. 

The explanation below may help you.
