MESSAGE TO YEAR 6.
IF YOU HAVEN'T SENT ME YOUR PHOTOS FOR 'LEAVERS' THEN PLEASE DO SO ASAP. Thank you!
Photo of you now (this one is a new request as I'm trying to save us some time when we return)
LO: To write a portal story
Today, I would like you to finish writing your portal story. Next week we will be focusing on aspects of grammar and punctuation which you will then use to improve your story, before we write up our final version.
LO: To use fractions as operators ( Multiply fractions by whole numbers and find fractions of amounts)
For the last maths lesson of this week, use what you have been learning over the last few days as you watch the video and complete the questions. Everyone should do Q1,2,3.
For an extra challenge try question 4. For some trickier problem solving, try questions 5 and 6!
Mark your work.

LO: To find percentages of amounts
I'm a bit sad we're not in school doing this, as I love teaching percentages of amounts. Anyway, here are some tips that will help you today.
If you have to find a percent of an amount, for example a percentage of 200, it might be helpful to work out 50%, 10% 5% and 1% first.
100% = 200
50% = 100 (50% means divide by 2 because there are 2 lots of 50 in 100)
10% = 20 (10% means divide by 10 because there are 10 lots of 10 in 100)
5% = 10 (5% means divide by 20 because there are 20 lots of 5 in 100)
1% = 2 (1% means divide by 100 because there are 100 lots of 1 in 100)
If you can work these out then you can use the information to work out other percentages. If 10% is 20, then 30% will be 60. If 10% is 20, 5% is 10 and 1% is 2, then 16% is 32.
I have linked some games for you to play before and after the lesson, which will help you get a secure understanding of percentages of amounts
