Considering our school for your child to start in September 2021? Unfortunately, we are unable to offer parent tours; please view this video for a flavour of our school.
This week, we would like you to recap your percentages skills. Remember to always look for the most efficient strategy (known facts, partitioning and calculating by using multiplication). Have a little sing of the percentages rap to warm yourselves up (you'll just have to imagine Mrs Taylor beat-boxing!)
These games on Education City will help warm your brains up before having a go at the maths challenges below.
Gold/Silver (in the Year 6 section):
Ready, Steady, Bake (Fractions, % and decimals)
Strictly Talented (Mental % calculations)
Bronze (in the Year 4 section):
Thirds of a Feather (Fractions of quantities)
Wheelie Good (Converting fractions to decimals)
Percentages practical activity
Here is another activity you could do to put your percentages knowledge to use:
Get a set of objects together –this could be a group of your toys, a set of books or even your socks (make sure they are clean!)
Sort them using your knowledge of percentages for example:
What percentage of your toys are cuddly?
What percentage of your socks are patterned?
What percentage of your books are non-fiction?
If you really want to challenge yourself further, think carefully about how you could present this data.
