Maths- Friday challenge! 3/4/2020

Over the last couple of weeks we have been practicing our adding and subtracting skills.

Now we have a challenge!

Number Round Up

Arrange the numbers 1 to 6 in each set of circles below.

The sum of each side of the triangle should equal the number in the centre of the triangular shape.

9 10

11 12


Once you’ve had a chance to think about it, have a look below to see how three different pupils began working on the task.


Dan said:

“I used counters which had 1 to 6 on them.

I put the counters in a triangle in any old way, then I added up the sides.

Then I moved the counters around to try and get the right total on each side.”


Emma said:

“I noticed that three of the numbers are odd (1,3 and 5) and three of the numbers are even (2,4 and 6).  I thought this might help.

I know that 9 is an odd number so it can be made using odd + odd + odd or using even + even + odd.”


Farah said:

“If I want a small total on each side, I’ll need small numbers in the corners of the triangle.”


Can you take each of these starting ideas and develop it into a solution?

Hope you have all be keeping safe!

Today you are going to create a character that the pirate meets on the deserted island. You will draw the character and label it using as many adjectives (describing words) as you can.

Here is an example:

Remember to form your letters correctly, have spaces between the words and if you make a mistake (like Miss Rix) put one line through it.
