Hello everyone,

I hope you had a great day yesterday and enjoyed the numeracy and literacy tasks. Remember that you can select tasks from the grid too if you would like to work on topic, HWB, expressive arts or STEM.

You can share your work with me if you want to on Teams or by email. I’ll be on Teams throughout the day if you have any questions.

Have a lovely day!

Mrs Muir 😊

Numeracy
Group 3
Today, we are going to continue our new learning about probability and chance. Remember that this is the likelihood of something happening.

Here are some of the key words we will need as we begin these tasks – remind yourself what each word means.
  • random
  • likely
  • very likely
  • unlikely
  • certain
  • even chance
  • impossible
  • likely

Task 1a – numeracy (topic maths)
I would like you to begin with p228-230 which looks at calculating chance. This is a long exercise and could take you some time to complete. Remember to read each question carefully and answer it fully. The yellow box at the top will explain the idea clearly – make sure that you read this carefully.

E.g – If I have 4 red socks and 3 blue socks in a drawer, what are my chances of pulling out a red sock?
My chances are 4 out of 7 because there are 4 red socks out of the total of 7.
I have 3 out of 7 chances that I will pull out a blue sock because 3 socks out of 7 are blue.
My chances of pulling out a red sock are higher because 4 out of 7 is higher than 3 out of 7.

Task 1b – numeracy (topic maths)
Next, I would like you to carry out the ‘dice roll investigation’. This is similar to last week’s experiment. If you don’t have any dice at home, I’ve included a template so that you can make your own.

If you can’t print this task, you can write out the answers on paper or in your jotter.
