We hope you are keeping well. Here are your activities for this week.
Go to the White Rose site (Summer Term Week 3 w/c 4th May) to recap fractions: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
These are your objectives for the week:
· Simplify fractions;
· Compare and order fractions;
· Add and subtract fractions;
· Mixed addition and subtraction of fractions.
We have done this before so it will be revision for you and good preparation for Y7.
Keep using TT Rockstars – your tables have been updated. It looks like there has been a drop in activity – only 26% of 6C and 28% of 6T have been active. Come on, you lot, keep practising those tables!

Remember to take some fresh air and exercise every day. Your sporting challenge this week is to design an obstacle course in your garden, if you are lucky enough to have one. Time your family members to complete the course.
Make up your own circuit training to do indoors (just like Joe Wicks!).
Remember to send in your photos of finished work to firstname.lastname@example.org
