# P4W Wise Woodies Learning Together at Home 21.5.20

Hello everyone!   I hope you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday.

Thursday 21 May 2020    21.5.20

Thursday Challenge- We are learning to calculate a quarter of an amount.

To calculate a quarter of an amount, half it then half it again.

For example: 84– half is 42, half it again is 21.                                                                                                                          So quarter of 84= 21

Task- calculate a quarter of these amounts.

SUPER–  20    40    100   80     12    16     88      48

FANTASTIC–  120     280     68      460    76     248    360   1000

SPECTACULAR–  236    £56    164m   720   £528    480km    1076

Extra Challenge– Think like a mathematician. What can you say about all of these numbers?

Daily Maths- We are learning to count in halves.                                                                                                              We are learning to show halves on a number line.

Task- Count out loud in halves from 1 to 10-  One, one and a half,  2,  2 and a half,  3,                                 3 and a half 4. four and a half………..                                                                                                           Count again – clap on every whole number.   ONE,  one and a half, TWO, two and a half,               THREE……                                                                                                                                                         Try counting in halves between other numbers.                                                                                       Count as you do some skipping!

Now use these skills to complete the number lines.
