Maths Meeting: Decimals (45 minutes)
Today we are going to be understanding hundredths. We have previously looked at tenths and we know that there are 10 tenths in a whole one. How many hundredths do you think make a whole one? Yes, you are correct, there are 100 hundredths in one whole one.
A hundredth when written in decimal looks like this –
How many hundredths are in the first number?
How many hundredths are in the second number?
There are 7 hundredths in the first number. There 23 hundredths in the second number however this can exchange to 2 tenths and 3 hundredths.
In the following tasks you are going to convert fractions and pictures into decimals using hundredths. Remember if it gives you more than 10 hundredths, you need to exchange ten of them for one tenth as shown in the example below.
Inference Skills –
Answer the following questions:
- Why do you think might of built this city in a cave?
- Who built this city in a cave?
- How do you think the people who live here feel?
- Would you like to live here? Why/Why not?
- How is this similar or different your to city/town?
- What do you think lies beneath this city?
- What noises might you hear around the city and how would the noise travel?
As promised, you will be moving back onto dance this week. Firstly, I want you to get warm. Try this 5 minute warm up to get you going.
- Jog on the spot for 30 seconds
- Windmills for 30 seconds
- Jumping Jacks for 30 seconds
- Arm circles for 30 seconds
- Rest for 30 seconds
- Repeat twice
I would like you to create your own dance using any music you want. Listen to the music first and try and dance to the mood of the song. If you use a slow song, you should be moving slowly with slow movements. Explore different moods and feelings and develop your response to the music through different shapes, speeds, directions and ways of travel.
I want you to challenge yourselves and include these moves into your routine:
- A jumping jack
- A spin on one leg
- A leaning balance forward on one leg
- A roll of your choice (teddy bear roll, forward roll, backward roll)
- A circle on the floor
If you can achieve these moves it will help develop control, coordination, balance, poise and elevation in the basic actions of travelling, jumping, turning, gesture and stillness.
Enjoy your dancing and have fun!
To finish off your day you are going to be looking at ‘landscape’ drawing. I want you to think about the height of different landscapes and how they differ in shape and size.
Watch the video in the link below and if you have colours, colour your landscape in to finish.
Have a great day working Year 5, I am proud of your efforts.
