Last month Kira saved 3/5 of her £10 pocket money. She also saved 15% of her £20 birthday money. How much did she save altogether?
Jakob says to Peter, ‘Last month I saved 0. 5 of my pocket money and this month I saved 1/3 of my pocket money, so altogether I’ve saved 40% of my pocket money’. Do you think Peter should agree with Jakob? Explain your decision.
As you have made a start on your autobiography this week, talk to your parents, carers, grandparents or siblings about what they remember, look through old photographs etc- can you add it into your work? The weather is supposed to be brilliant this week so get outside and have a picnic to enjoy those funny or momentous stories of your childhood. If all else fails (rains) you can throw an indoor picnic. Get off those screens and get talking to your loved ones!

Don't stress about schoolwork. In June, we will get your children back on track. I am a teacher and that's my superpower. So right now I need you to share your calm, strength and laughter. No children are ahead. No children are behind. Your children are exactly where they need to be (at home in lockdown!)
