Friday – Use these Nrich tasks to develop your mathematical thinking
Below is a pair of tasks. The first task in each pair encourages you to explore, play with some maths, and make discoveries for yourself. The second task then gives you the chance to use what you have found out in a new situation.
These activities will give you opportunities to work on all five key ingredients that make a successful mathematician: understanding, skills, problem solving, reasoning and attitude. To find out more about these five ingredients and suggestions about how you can reflect on becoming a better mathematician, take a look at our short article What Makes a Good Mathematician?.

This week, we are moving onto the topic of electricity – what is static electricity? If you have a balloon at home, you can complete your own experiment to create static charges!
This week we move onto learning about Henry VIII – one of the most famous English Kings. We will learn about how Henry changed the official religion of England from Catholicism to Protestantism in order to get his way…clue, this might have something to do with his SIX wives.
I wonder if you can discover the simple rhyme about his wives and email it to us?
Task 3 – Geography – Sustainability
This would have been our topic in school this term – it is such a vital subject.
Afterwards, have a think about your daily life with your family – could you make some little changes which make a big difference for the future e.g. recycling, using less plastic, buying local produce.
Make a journey stick
The weather is going to be wonderful this week, so why not plan a walk with your family and complete this activity – a way to be mindful during your walk and reflect on it later. You might like to send us photos of your journey sticks for us to tweet or put on the blog.
Time to put those screens down and enjoy sunshine and nature!
Task 5 – PE
It’s tennis this week, but you might like to choose one of the previous week if it appeals to you more!
