Mr Hale's and Miss Bean's Maths groups

Today's Maths


NOTE: This video was made for Year Seven and so the teacher will refer to you as Year Seven and state that learning will take place more in Year Eight. Please ignore when this happens. As per the instructions below, any new terminology your teacher uses, pause the video, write it down (you may need to use a dictionary to find the meaning) and give some examples to help you remember.


If you find you are struggling with this learning, please refer to ‘Miss Deakin and Miss Miller’s Maths Groups’ page and complete the Maths learning via the link on this page. This is about Fractions and the tasks do get more complex as the week progresses.


If you have any issues or need additional support, please contact myself or Mr Hale and we can help you as best we can via I Am Learning.



Monday and Tuesday


L.O. to write algebraic expressions

Resources (including
exercise book being used)

Maths book, pencil, green pen, ruler


First, complete the quiz. This is to show what you already know so don’t worry if you find some questions tricky. Record your score in your Maths book.

Then, scroll up to the top of the page then click ‘Next Activity’.


Watch the video, the teacher will explain to when to pause. Complete all work in your Maths book under your Date and LO not on a sheet of paper. You can reply to the teacher out loud just like a real lesson! When it says to, copy the question and write your answer in your book then mark in green pen when the teacher tells you the answer (you can pause the video if you need more time to answer)


Write down all terminology given along with its meaning and an example– this will help you when you transfer to secondary school.

To locate the ‘worksheet’ please pause and close the video. Then scroll up to the top of the page then click ‘Next Activity’. You will have a set of slides with questions, equations, sums etc. This is the worksheet.


Continue through the slides up to slide 9 and Q23. Slides 10-14 are the answers. Self-mark in your books, using a green pen, and edit incorrect answers by identifying errors.


Once you have marked your work, click ‘Next Activity’. You should see ‘Start Quiz’ complete the quiz. Record your score in your Maths book then send your score to your class teacher when you send your ‘Good Morning’ message on I Am Learning on Wednesday morning.


Optional task – Your age is ‘n’. Write algebraic expressions for your family's ages like your teacher did in the first part of the video.


You have two days to answer all 23 questions as they do get more complicated. You may wish to rewind the video to your teacher modelling writing expressions for additional support.
