Come on Diamond Class! Emerald are beating us – complete some times tables:


LO: To solve problems involving time

Use the television listings from a newspaper, magazine or the internet and create (cut & paste, cut out and stick in, draw a table, etc) a table showing all the programmes on BBC1 from 9.30am until 2.00pm.

-Work out how long each programme lasts (in minutes).
-Which programme is on television the longest? How long does it last?
-Which programme is on the shortest? How long does it last?
-How many programmes last longer than 45 minutes?
-If the first programme overruns by 15 minutes work out the new times that the all the programmes after it will start.

-Using your TV listings guide, find out at what time the main news is shown on BBC1 and Channel Four on a weekday. Present your information in a format that makes it easy to compare the different channels and start times.

-Look at the TV listings for Sky 1 for Monday and convert the start times of each programme into digital format. Create a table or diagram to show the times and programmes.

-What time is your favourite TV programme on? How long does it last? What channel is it on? What programme is showing on two different channels at the same time?

LO: To recognise and identify 2D shapes

  • Look around your home and count how many different 2D shapes you can find. List 10 different objects and their shape (eg, television – rectangle).

    • Describe and draw 5 different shapes that you can see.

    • Which shapes have right angles? Draw the object and show the right angle.

    • Which shapes have lines of symmetry? Draw the object and show the lines of symmetry.

    • Design a plan for a square room using only 2D shapes. Use different shapes to represent the furniture in your room (eg, circle for chair, rectangle for bed, etc). You can decide what furniture to have in your room. Label the items in your room.

LO: To solve problems using appropriate calculations

You have been asked to organise the packed lunches for your class trip (23 children.) Everyone will get the following packed lunch:

1 ham sandwich (2 slices of bread for each sandwich)
1 packet of crisps
1 piece of fruit
1 yoghurt
1 carton drink

• How many of each item will you need altogether?

• How many slices of bread are there in a loaf? How many loaves will you need?

• If there is one slice of ham in the sandwich, how much ham will you need?

• How many slices of ham are in a pack? How many packs will you need?

• Look in your local shop, supermarket or on the internet and estimate the costs of each item needed for the packed lunch. How much will they cost altogether?

• Work out the exact costs for all the items needed. How does this compare with your estimated cost?

• Can you find any special offers on the items you need that will help you to save money?

Maths Investigation

Here is a fun maths investigation for you to try. The answers are on the last sheet so don’t cheat!!

Good luck
