Here are Friday’s answers:
On the whole, you answered Friday's arithmetic well. The average score was 70%. The question that caught the majority of you out was the one about factors. Some of you didn’t recognise 3 and 16 as factors of 48. Others rushed at it: if you’d read option B to the end, you would have spotted that there was no 48!
The other one where some of you calculated incorrectly was the km to miles one. To change km to miles, ÷8, then x5.

For English, there is a grammar booklet based on terms and word classes. Each page contains a reminder before a quick task. You are used to doing these sorts of activities from Boosters. Indicate the correct answer in your exercise book in an appropriate manner. There is no need for excessive copying, just apply some common sense. If the question asks you to circle a word, just write the word down. If you’re asked to tick an option, just refer to it as option 1, 2, 3 or 4. Answer as many questions as you can in half an hour.
For today’s maths, we are going to continue with White Rose. You will again think about ‘scale factors’ which are closely related to ratio. There is a video to watch, then a task to complete. You can answer the questions in your exercise book.
Start by watching the video and then open the pdf sheet underneath for the questions.
Remember, you can pause the video at any point.
