Activity 1: Reading (Social Media Day)
Last Tuesday it was Social Media Day. Social Media has become a part of our everyday lives and I am sure most people would find it hard to spend time away from our screens! Watch the video Social Media today and complete the questions to find out how social media begun.

Activity 2 : Maths
Today’s work follows on from yesterday’s learning and you’ll be applying the same principle of reading across from the x or y axis and meeting the line to determine the information. Yesterday’s video included a little introduction to today’s work. Good luck!

Activity 2 : Maths- Reading and interpreting tables.

Start with the video explainer from Mr Kelly if you’re less confident but if you mastered the line graphs you should have the skills to complete the worksheet on tables (below in the downloads section, alongside the answer sheet). Today we look at tables with just one set of data.

Activity 3: Science

Activity 2 : Maths- two way tables.
Today we’re going to be looking at tables with multiple sets of data. This shouldn’t be too tricky if you’ve ever used a multiplication grid – just find the information in the header (top) row and then the information in the left column and look to where the row and column intersect. Check yesterday’s video for some tips and an introduction to the worksheet (which is in the downloads below, alongside the answers)
