Wednesday 10th June



If you haven't yet sent us your Leavers' Book photos (see the Topic page for more details about this!), they must be in by tomorrow at the latest so that we can start putting the book together and get it ordered. 



Today we will be revising how to multiply one fraction by another fraction. This is actually a lot easier than it sounds! Read the Guided Learning and then have a go at either sheet 1 or sheet 2 below. The challenge questions are on the second page of sheet 2.


*Hawking Class - As Mr Catchpole is in school today, he will update this page with the answers to today's work this afternoon so that you can see how you got on.





Sheet 1:


1) C

2) A = 3/ B = 2/ C = 1

3) 1/6 x 1/5 = 1/30


Sheet 2;


1) C

2) A = 3/ B =1/ C = 2

3) 2/3 X 5/6 = 10/18 or 2/3 x 5/8 = 10/24




1) 1/4 x 1/6 = 1/24

2) 2/3 x 3/4 = 6/12 = 1/2

3) The area of the whole rectangle is 1.

To calculate the area of the smaller rectangle, do 2/3 x 5/7, which is 10/21.

To find the area of the shaded part, subtract 10/21 from 1, which gives you 11/21,

4) This is correct because x also means 'of' and when you multiply, it doesn't matter which order you do the calculation because of the commutative law.



Happy Wednesday!


Now that your profiles are finished, we would like you to have a think about what your best memories have been in Year 6 and during your time at Bishop Ridley. Using the template attached below, create a mind map of your best memories ad consider why they are so special to you.


Think carefully about the experiences that you have had since the start of school, for example: school trips, visitors, sporting events, collective worship, lessons that stand out etc. Try to come up with at least 6 (one for each year that you’ve been at school)- you are welcome to add more if you wish!
