Good Morning!

Maths - Today we will be learning about inverse operations. Inverses 'undo' an operation. The inverse of addition is subtraction and the inverse of multiplication is division. So..... 5 + 3 = 8 the inverse would be 8 - 3 = 5 and for 4 x 5 = 20 the inverse would be 20 ÷ 5 = 4. The activity today involves first working out the missing operation and then writing the inverse.

15 _________ = 23.  What operation and quantity could be missing? The answer is bigger so we need to add. How much do we add? Count on from 15 to 23. So the missing operation and amount is + 8. The completed calculation then becomes 15 + 8 = 23. Finally, the inverse will be 23 - 8 = 15. Phew!!

If you want a challenge try the second sheet which uses multiplication and division.

English- Next week you will be writing a persuasive piece of writing based on one of the environmental issues we have started looking at as part of our science. In this piece of writing you will have to argue a point of view and then giving evidence that supports your view. Today we would like to research one of the following areas:

• Plastic pollution
• Recycling
• Rainforests and deforestation
• Renewable and non renewable sources of energy.
