Maths puzzle

I think we are getting the hang of these number puzzles now, so one more today before we move on.

So using only the numbers bellow, how many different way can you make 17!



PLEASE remember I am looking for the most ways of making 17!

How many can you bring with you for our 9.25 video call?




09.25 – 10.15

Maths – Statistics

Maths Targeted Question Book

Pages 52, 53, 54 and 55.

Google Classroom video call at 09.25am for the first 15 minutes.


Today we are going to use the skills that we practised over the last two days to answer pages in our Maths Targeted Questions Book.


Here you have questions on tables, bar charts and pictograms.


Some bits to remember…

  • When counting a lot of something we use a tally chart because it is easy to count the total.
  • When counting, every fifth one you do a line through the first four 
  • So whenever you see that diagonal line, you know its five. 
  • For example, how many is this? 
  • 5 sets of 5, so we know its 25.
  • When you are completing a tally chart, as you count one and put it in the tally chart, put a line through the picture or the word. This will prevent you from double counting something by mistake.
  • From yesterday’s pictogram work, if the key tells you one circle is worth 2 children, remember half a circle would count for one child. Equally if the key tells you a whole picture is worth 4 children, half a circle would count for 2.
  • Read the questions carefully! Some may need you to add two totals or even subtract one total from another.


Please have a go at these four pages and send me some pictures of your completed work through Class Dojo.




10.40 – 11.05

English – diary of our home learning experience.

Please use this 20 minutes to update your diary about what you did yesterday.

I am still looking for more detail on your feelings.

It is all good and well telling me what fitness you did in PE, but you also need to say if you enjoyed it or not. Which lesson yesterday did you enjoy the most? And why? What did you have for dinner? Did you enjoy it?





11.05 – 12.00

English – Fictional story – the problem and solution

Google Classroom video call at 11.05am for the first 15 minutes.


Every great story has a problem and a solution, and that is what we will plan today.

Think of any great book you have read, and the main character is always face with a problem, and if it has a happy ending, a solution.

For example, in Jack and the Beanstalk Jack was poor. In the 3 Billy Goats Gruff they wanted to cross the river.  


Firstly, let’s look at a couple of problems and brainstorm possible solutions.



Now, with those examples in mind, your task is to think of the problem faced by your main character.

And most importantly, how will the problem be resolved.

It is a shame but Mr Stevens is unable to join us for our Music lesson this week.

However he has prepared some work for us to continue our learning about Samba music which he introduced us to last week.

Please watch the below video on BBC Bitesize and then attempt the comprehension questions attached below.

Couple of top tips…

  • Watch the video all the way through before even thinking about the questions.
  • Then you can watch the video again with the questions in front of you and pause the video whilst you answer a question.
