Maths

Title: Can I find value and complete patterns? 

For your maths homework this week, we would like you to attempt section 11 and 12 on the sheet that has been provided. Those of you who would like a challenge should have a go at section 13 too.

Please remember to write a beautifully neat date and title in your maths homework book, and underline them with a ruler. Please do not write on the sheet, but show us any working out and answers in your book. 

Please complete your homework using a pencil.

Remember we also expect you to read at home at least 4 times a week and record this in your Home School Book. We will collect home school books in every Monday to look at your reading record for the previous week and will be awarding house points for the amount of reading you have completed.
