Year 6 Maths week 10 and week 11
Since many Year 6 children are returning to school 2 days a week, until the end of term we will be providing maths for Year 6 children in a slightly different way. There will be 3 days a week off site learning provided in a similar way to how it has been. Then the other 2 days will be focused on transition units. These will be done in school for the children attending and an alternative will be provided for those remaining at home.
Cottenham Village College use a great programme called Hegarty Maths to do most of their homework in Year 7, 8 and 9. The company that is linked to this (Numerise) have created a special unit especially for Year 6 children called Secondary Ready. It is relevant for children attending any secondary school. This is what we would like children not attending school to do as their transition unit 2 days a week. It is split into different units and we would like children to do 2 units a week. We will not be doing it in school so if children attending school can also find time to do this at home it would be beneficial for their start at Secondary school.
To use Numerise do the following:
1. Search www.numerise.com
2. An adult then needs to sign up to create a free account and an email will be sent
3. Click on the sent email to add a child learner
4. Your child can then log in on the child learner account and get working
If your child is not returning to school you may want some other maths activities. There is a huge amount of things available on the internet. Some sites we recommend are :
Week 10 Activities
• The first 3 days of Murder in the Library (see other document), which follows a similar format to week 9 maths.
• 2 day transition unit on the 2 days that your child is in school. Or the first 2 units of Numerise as explained earlier in the document.
Week 11 Activities
• The final 2 days of Murder in the Library, following on from last week
• The NRich investigation which can be found as a separate document
• 2 day transition unit on the 2 days that your child is in school. Or the next 2 units of Numerise as explained earlier in the document.
