P.E: This week is National School Sport Week. Everyday I will be posting a different sheet, which contains a number of activities for you to choose from. When you have chosen your activity, think about who you are going to challenge or how you are going to be challenged and then finally capture the moment - there are plenty of suggestions available on the sheet about how you can do this.

Flashback4: Similarly to Mini Maths, these questions allow you to revisit areas that we have looked at in the past. Don't panic just because it looks different.
The first 2 questions focus on algebra and remember when a number is written next a letter there is a hidden multiply sign e.g 3a = 3 x a
The letter a is used to represent a missing number.
Let's look at an example that will help us with Q1.
3c + f = 12 What could the values of c and f be?
c = 4 and f = 0 because...
3 x 4 = 12 + 0 = 12
c = 2 f = 6 because
3 x 2 = 6 + 6 = 12
Work through the questions carefully and remember to show your working out. If you are unsure, please send me a message on SATs Companion and I will talk you through it.
TT RockStars: Please complete 5 studios. Remember, when you have finished, you could challenge your friends to a 'Rock Slam' or send some friends a message and compete against one another in festival mode.
Maths: Today we are going to be looking at calculating missing angles on a straight line.
What do I need to know?
Angles on a straight line always add up to 180 degrees as you can see in the image to the left.
If we look at the example on the right, we need to find the value of 'a'. To find this, we simply do 180 - 45, which is the angle we have been given, therefore 'a' = 135.
A straight line can be split more than once and the total of all the angles will still equal 180.
Here you can see that the line has been split into 4 parts to find out 'b' simply add the angles together that you do know:
45 +39 + 24 = 108 and then subtract this number from 180. 180 - 108 = 72. 'b' = 72
