Maths – Multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.

Did you know that when you multiply and divide a decimal by 10, 100 and 1000, the place value of the digits either increases or decreases?

  • When multiplying, the digits move to the left since the number gets bigger.
  • When dividing, the digits move to the right since the number gets smaller.

It is important to remember that the decimal point does not move.

Multiplying and dividing decimals helps you in everyday life. It can help you to:

  • convert pounds into pence and vice versa.
  • convert measures such as kilograms to grams and millilitres to litres and vice versa when baking.
  • convert length, for example if you needed to work out how much space a small wardrobe would take up in a room measured in metres.

You can use place value charts to help multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000. This enables you to see how the digits increase or decrease in value.

A trick to help you remember how many places the digits need to move is by looking at the zeros in 10, 100 and 1000.

For example, if you multiply or divide by 1000, you either move 3 places to the right or left.

  • 1 zero = 1 place
  • 2 zeros = 2 places
  • 3 zeros = 3 places

Examples

What is 27 divided by 10?

To divide by 10, you move the digits one place to the right. So 27 ÷ 10 = 2.7

What is 3.12 × 100?

To multiply by 100, you move the digits two places to the left. So 3.12 × 100 = 312

Mathletics – Multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.

Try creating your very own place value chart to help you with this. We would love to see some of the creative ways you tackle these problems. How would you teach this method?

Maths:

This week we are going to have a  look at Area and Perimeter.

How to find Perimeter

Perimeter is the distance around a shape. For any shape we can find this by measuring the total length of the lines around the shape. It is easier for shapes made of straight lines (polygons) than it is for shapes with curved lines.

To find perimeter imagine you are walking around the whole shape and add up the length of each line. Make sure your lines are all measured using the same units!

Take a look at this YouTube clip on Perimeter to help you understand how this works.

 

 

How to find Area

Area is the measurement of space inside a 2-Dimensional shape. There are lots of different ways of calculating the area of regular shapes. We can use the measurements of the sides to calculate exact areas, or we can use unit squares to estimate the area of irregular shapes.

To calculate the area of a rectangle we use the measurements of sides. Often we will use square centimetres (cm²) or square metres (m²). Instead of counting the squares inside a rectangle, we can use the formula base length x width.

Topic – Who was Tutankhamum

 

Friday 8th May

Victory in Europe Day!

VE day – a time where we show our appreciation for those who fought in the second World War.

Mr P and Miss B have been chatting about the kind of questions we think you might have about VE day and have tried our best to answer them in a way that will make sense.

When did World War Two start?

World War II began on the 1st September 1939.

Why did World War Two start?

Having been one of the countries to lose the First World War, Germany had to sign an agreement that said they were to blame for the conflict, which took place from 1914 – 1918.

As part of that agreement, they had to pay a fine, lose some of their acquired land and be allowed only a small army.

Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party ignored the agreement and secretly started building up their army and invading and taking back lands they had lost.

On 1 September 1939, after warnings from other countries not to do so, Germany invaded Poland.

Great Britain and France supported Poland and declared war on Germany, sparking the start of World War Two.

Who were the Nazis?

The Nazis were a German political party – officially called the National Socialist German Worker’s Party.

The leader of the party was Adolf Hitler, and in 1933, the German people voted in favour of Hitler and the Nazis running Germany.

The Nazis believed that Aryans (people with blond hair and blue eyes) were the ‘master’ race and that all other people were inferior.

Hitler wanted to eradicate ‘lesser’ people from Germany to make the country a world leader.

Which countries fought in World War Two?

The countries who fought against Germany were known as the Allies.

Those who fought with Germany were known as the Axis.

The Allied countries were: Great Britain, France, United States, Greece, Australia, Canada, Belgium, India, Poland, South America and many more.

The Axis countries included: Germany, Italy, Japan, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Bulgaria.

When did World War Two end?

By 1944, many of the countries captured and occupied by Axis powers were freed by the Allies.

With Germany and the Axis powers on the defensive, Adolf Hitler took his own life in April 1945. A week later, Germany surrendered.

On 8 May 1945, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced that the war was over – a date that was known as VE Day (Victory in Europe Day).

Despite the celebrations, the war wasn’t technically over across the globe until 2 September 1945 when Japan’s surrender from the conflict was officially signed.

We hope this helps you understand the importance of VE day. Today would be a great to do some research and reading of your own.

We hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend with your families.  We both miss you, as does Coco!
