Maths

 

 

This week we will be recapping short division with remainders. The first video below recaps short division without remainders, then the next shows you how to write remainders as fractions and decimals. 

 

Once you have watched these videos and are confident, you can move onto either the main document or the support document depending on your confidence levels. Both sheets are based on short division with decimal remainders. 

Division without remainders- Corbettmaths

Corbettmaths - A video on division. It shows how to carry out short division, otherwise known as the bus shelter method. REMEMBER: DECIMAL POINT ABOVE, DECIMAL POINT BELOW, ADD A ZERO.

Division with remainders - Corbettmaths

THIS WEEK'S THEME IS COLOUR

Today we are going to explore colour in food.  Watch the videos below to find out about how different coloured foods benefit our health. 

"Eat a Rainbow"

You will need some art supplies, a grown up, a blindfold and some foods that are all the same colour, e.g. white foods - milk, extra strong mints, ice cream, salt, sherbet.

 

Wear the blindfold and ask your grown up to feed you one of the food stuffs without letting you know what it is. 

Once you have finished tasting, draw what you tasted. e.g. a creamy texture might be represented by swirly patterns where a sharp taste might be shown as zig zag lines. You could even think about whether to represent the taste and texture with cool or warm colours.

 

Remember, you are not drawing what the food is but what it tastes like. Your image should be very abstract.

 

When you have finished, try again with a different food. You should end up with a selection of very different abstract drawings or paintings.

As an additional activity, you could follow the recipe below to create your own healthy meal.
