Maths - 21.5.20

1. Write the Maths L.O: I can use my knowledge of angles to solve a problem.

2. Draw the lines to make the shape below (It doesn't have to be exact because we will be working out the angles using our facts, not our protractors)

3. Using the helpful tips, label the missing angles

Helpful Tips

  • Opposite angles are equal (the same).
  • There are 180 degrees in a Straight Angle.
  • There are 360 degrees in a Full Angle.
  • The interior angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees.
  • The interior angles of a quadrilateral add up to 360 degrees.

Below are the answers to yesterday's work.

Today's work...

Kitchen Conversion

1 inch = about 2.5cm

1 ounce = approximately 25 grams

1 pint = roughly 0.6 litres

Yards, feet, inches, stones, pounds, ounces, gallons and pints are all IMPERIAL measurements. We use mostly METRIC measurements like metres and centimetres today, but we need to be able to convert between the two types.

Your mission for today:

Take your home learning book, pencil, colours and ruler into your kitchen.

You may also need some kitchen scales and a measuring jug.

Find things in your kitchen that either show their measurements, or can be measured.

Draw them in your home learning book under the heading Kitchen Conversion.

Label them with their measurements in BOTH imperial and metric units of measurement.


This can contains 500ml of soup. 500ml = half a litre. 1 litre is 0.6 of a pint, so half a litre is about 0.3 of a pint, or about 1/3 of a pint.

If you have an answer for Jacob's piano problem, that will mean that you didn't give up. Well done, you have completed the objective.

There were 43 notes. Each had 3 strings. 43 x 3 = 129 strings.

It took 129 x 45 seconds. That's 5,805 seconds.

How many minutes? 5,805 divided by 60 (because there are 60 seconds in a minute). That's 96.75 minutes, or 96 minutes and 45 seconds (because 0.75 = 3/4 = 45 out of 60 seconds).

The answer is 96 minutes, 45 seconds.

In hours, minutes and seconds it is 1 hour, 36 minutes and 45 seconds.

Today's work...

Maths - 18.5.20

Below are the answers to Friday's work.


Good morning from Mr. Hall's house. Today's motto is...

Here's Jacob. What is he doing?

So that's 43 notes, each note has 3 strings, and each string takes 45 seconds to tune on average.

How long, in minutes and seconds, has it taken for Jacob to tune the first 43 notes?

This is a challenging problem to solve. The objective is Don't Give Up! If you don't give up, you will have completed the task. People who give up will never get it right. People who don't give up will get at least some of it right. I want you to get at least some of it right, which means you must not give up. Let's do it!

Maths - 15.5.20

2. Using the helpful tips, label the missing angles

Yesterday, lots of you worked really hard to find the answers to my problem.

I needed a budget of £150 for 5 people (seems like a lot!), that's £60 more than we were spending.

Subhaan's solution...

The amount of ingredients you need for one cake is:

225g butter, softened,

225g caster sugar,

4 eggs,

225g self raising flour,

3 tbsp milk,

1 tsp vanilla extract,

2 tbsp cocoa powder,

No marbles!


Now have a go at these five questions, there is a help sheet below if you need it.

Maths - 12.5.20

Help! I am stuck! Here are my problems:

Before the lockdown, Samuel and Jacob were away from home at university. They have come home and, quite frankly, are eating all the food so that by the end of the week there is none left. Perhaps if they had to pay something towards it, they might be a bit more careful.

Our weekly shop - between me, Mrs. Hall and Kitty - used to cost £90. How much do you think should we be spending now that 2 more people are at home? Send me an answer in an email message.

If we spend more than that amount, I am going to send them a bill for the extra money spent.


My daughter, Kitty, made four marble cakes the other day - one for us, and some for the neighbours. Yummy.

Chocolate marble cake recipe | BBC Good Food

She needed

  • 900g butter, softened
  • 900g caster sugar
  • 16 eggs
  • 900g self-raising flour
  • 12 tbsp milk
  • 4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 tbsp cocoa powder
  • No marbles

Now I would like to make one. Just one. Send me an email to tell me how much of each ingredient I need.

I can't wait to get your solutions, because then I can make one.

Thank you,

Mr. Hall

Answers from yesterday:

Identifying Hundredths

Question 1-

34/100          79/100          53/100

1/100            8/100             4/100

Question 2-

a. 2/10

b. 50/100

c. 70/100

d. 3/10

e. 90/100

f. 6/10

True or false?

1. Three quarters is the same as 750/1000. TRUE.

2. 0.75 = 7/8. FALSE. 0.75 = 6/8 = 3/4 = 75/100 = 750/1000

3. All cows eat grass. TRUE, but they also eat other things.

4. 3.45, rounded to the nearest whole number, is 4.FALSE. The nearest whole number is 3.

5. 3/5 > 0.65.       3/5 = 30/50 = 60/100 = 6/10 = 0.6.    So 3/5 = 0.6, and 0.6 < 0.65, therefore it is FALSE.

Now for today's work...

1. Rule off any previous work and write 22.4.20    Maths L.O: I can convert between different metric units of length. 

2. Have a go at one of the challenges below. Remember you can zoom by using the settings option at the top right of the internet window under the exit cross.
