Multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100

Here's the link to the game we played in maths this morning.

Have a go and see if you can get all of the answers right. Remember to use the arrow buttons to shift all of the digits to the left (multiplying) or to the right (dividing).

Times Tables Practice

Here's a couple of links to some games to help you practise your times tables.

The first one is my Times Tables Challenge. Choose the tables you want to be tested on and see how many you can get right in 30 seconds:

The next is called 'Hit the Answer' and it's a great way of practising knowing the questions that go with each times tables answer (there's also some doubles and halves on there too):

Remember - aim to get to Bronze, Silver or Gold level when I next test you on your tables.

Loopy Snooker Investigation

Here's the link to the Loopy Snooker investigation we did in school:

Can you find more patterns that will enable you to predict how many bounces will occur for any snooker table? Send a comment if you discover a new pattern.

Welcome to Year 6!

A big welcome to the new Princess May Year 6 children. I hope you enjoy using the blog this year.

Keep checking to see useful links for activities you can do at home. If there is a website that you use at home that you want to tell other children about then feel free to let Mr Hanley or Mrs McCree-Boyle know and we might add a post about it.
