Each week, you will have two sessions on mymaths, 2 fluency or problem-solving tasks and one y6 arithmetic paper which should be straightforward but will keep your brains going. Please do not print out the sheets – just write your answers into your red homework book or any paper you can find at home. You should find the answers attached so that you can self-mark.

MONDAY - mymaths – reverse percentages and percentage change

TUESDAY - reverse percentage word problems – remember the bar model!!

100% =

15.20 ÷95 x 100 = 15.20 ÷0.95

a clock’s price has increased by 40% to £112. What did it cost originally?

140% = £112

1% = ?

100% = ?

112 ÷140 x 100 = 112 ÷1.4
