Wk 3 - Maths
Below you will find links to the worksheets for this week's learning. This is our last week of Multiplication and Division so the last activity is an End Of Unit Assessment. As usual, I would ask you to try your best. I have also added some Reasoning and Problem Solving questions - you could try as many of them as you can. Remember to explain your idea or show your working out.
When you have completed the assessment please email the school office with your score.
As we have not worked together on Division in school, I have listed some links to videos (from White Rose) that will talk you through examples. These may be more helpful than the usual videos on the White Rose Home Learning page.
