Home learning on BBC bitesize
BBC bitesize are preparing daily Maths sessions for children in KS2, which include videos, worksheets and games!
Maths with Gareth Metcalfe
Each day, I have posted a new video lesson for Y5/6 children (all Y5/6 lessons here). Each video explores a big mathematical idea in small, easy-to-follow steps and a range of independent tasks are set for children to complete. A new lesson is posted at 9am every day. Everything is free.
Here’s the outline plan for the rest of the school year. I will continue making the videos for the duration of the UK school closures (however long that lasts):
20th – 24th April: Reasoning with Shapes
27th April – 15th May: Reasoning in Multiplication and Division
18th – 22nd May: Measures: Money and Time
1st June – 5th June: Data Handing
8th June – 19th June: Fractions
22nd June – 3rd July: Flexible Calculation
6th July – 17th July: Mathematical Puzzles

Welcome back! This term, we are studying South America!
This week, we have been reading 'The Vanishing Rainforest' and have written some excellent persuasive letters to the Nabe! In Maths, we have been exploring different methods of multiplication: partitioning, the area model and long multiplication. In Geography, we discovered the countries within South America and were able to label them on a map. In Science, we dissected a flower and are now able to name the different parts of a flowering plant. Next week, we'll be exploring the life cycle of a plant!
This week, we have been exploring fairy tales! We will be looking at two versions of Cinderella and writing our own version of Cinderella with a twist! In Maths, we have continued to work on long multiplication and have been working with some difficult word problems. In Geography, we explored climates of the world and found out about the different climate zones within South America. We explored a Brazilian artist called Beatriz Milhazes in art and we created our own Brazilian carnival music in music, which sounded excellent! We are looking forward to watching M and M productions on Friday!
