LEARN THE WORDS FOR A SPELLING CHALLENGE ON FRIDAY! Have fun. Think of all of the fun ways in which you can learn the words.

## Maths Homework 23/1 /16

In class, we have been practising the inverse when checking answers. Please try to have a go at some of these at home.

e.g.: 234 – 121 =

Estimate first, by rounding to the nearest 10: 230 – 120 =

230- 100 – 20 = 110

Now do it:

2 3 4
– 1 2 1
1 1 3

Then CHECK it:Use the opposite symbol to the one used in the sum, which would be a

1 1 3
1 2 1
2 3 4                   CORRECT!

Have a go at these:

1) 524 – 231 =

2) 332 – 112 =

3) 987 – 206 =

4) 901 – 432 =

5) 443 + 221 =

6) 201 + 109 =

## Maths Homework

We explored fractional quantities last term and have also revised them in class. Your task is to complete the fractional quantity sheet in your books. Please do not write on the sheets, but copy them into your books neatly.

To find fractional quantities of a number:

e.g.

4/5 of 20.

1) First ask yourself, ‘How many fifths? 5. So how many 5s are in 20?’ What does this mean? Well it means, divide the number by 5.

1/5 = 20 ÷ 5  = 4

But I need 4 of them! So that would be 4+4+4+4= 16 (or 4 x 4=16)

So 4/5 of 20 is 16.
