Here is the learning for this week, any problems then get in touch through Purple Mash.

Again, I’m not going to set any new work on MyMaths this week. Keep working through any that you haven’t completed.

I’ve set something slightly different this week, based on a feedback from you and your parents. Here are 3 arithmetic tests for you to try. Remember to show your working out and not do every calculation mentally.




You can also work through the word problems on fractions here.
