This lesson continues to encourage children to build on their skills of reading and interpreting the data-this time in tables. Encourage your child to really understand what the information in the table is telling them The second part of the sheet begins to ask the children to combine bits of data from the table and total or find the difference. They may want to use strategies they can recall from previous blocks in order to solve these calculations-please encourage any working out or diagrams they wish to use.
The teaching video takes you through the different steps the children will take as they build up to achieving the new objective. The video includes worked examples as well as questions for the children to have a go at and discuss with an adult. Use the video at the pace your child needs it and keep stopping and starting when you need too. Any work from the examples on the video can be done in the child's book. This should hopefully give your child the confidence to then complete the first questions on the independent work. The second sheet of the independent work is problem solving and reasoning so don't feel the pressure to push your child onto these unless you feel they secure with the main objective.
