First of all, answers to yesterday's maths: 

 

1.   12  - 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 

2.   14  - 1, 2, 7, 14 

3.   30   -  1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30  

4.   22   - 1, 2, 11, 22  

5.   32   - 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32   

6.   23   - 1, 23 

7.   60   - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, 60 

8.   97   - 1, 97    hopefully obvious if you think what they MUST be if there are only two!

 

a) First of all, a times table activity.  The link below is Carol Vorderman's Times Table Check - there are three different levels to have a go at.   

 

 

 

In your green maths book:

 

b)  Using factors to simplify fractions.  To 'simplify' a fraction means to find another fraction the same size, but with a smaller numerator and denominator.  For example, 2/4 simplified is 1/2

 

Without diagrams, a way to do this is to identify what factor both the numerator and the denominator have. 

For example:  6/8.   Six and eight both have two as a factor.  So if we divide both six and eight by two, we get....3/4. 

Another example: 21/35.  21 and 35 both have 7 as a factor.  So if we divide both of the numbers by 7, we get....3/5. 

Another example: 6/18. Six and eighteen both have six itself as a factor.  So if we divide both of the numbers by 6, we get...1/3.

Have a go at these ones! 

1.  15/20 = 

2.  30/50 = 

3.   8/20 = 

4.  3/18 = 

5.  18/42 = 

6.  27/72 = 

 

In your purple writing book: 

 

c) Undertake the 'Word of the Day' activity, below.  

 

 

Spanish

 

d) Here's something different to try!  Below is a link to a website that will teach you Spanish.  You could actually learn a number of different languages on there, but it is Spanish we learn in Year 3 and 4 at Millfield!  It is free, and easy to sign up and create a profile so that it will keep a record for you.  It's suggestion is just to do 5, or 10, or 15 or 20 minutes a day. 

Daily practice really does help!  My boys have been doing ten minutes of French a day every (well, almost every) day during lock down, and I can't believe how much they've learnt!
