From Mr Shenton

 

Monday 1st June

Dear Golden Eagle Class,

I hope you had a good half term holiday. Although it is a shame that this will not be the final term at Kingfield you all were hoping for, it will be really nice to see some of you back at school today in our new socially distanced school! I have opened a 2Do activity on Purple Mash where you can write about your holiday and what you did to keep busy!

Throughout this half term we will be working through a home learning book from Power Maths. Click on the following link : https://preview.pearsonactivelearn.com/PowerMathsYear6

You then need to accept the terms and conditions and then go to “Open Book” and click on “Power Maths Year 6 Practice Book Summer Home Edition”. You can work through the maths book at your own pace. Perhaps do a couple of pages every day. The answers are in the back of the booklet.

I hope you have a good Monday

Good morning Golden Eagle Class. Well done for almost making it to half term! You've all done a great job with your home learning so far. Today I have posted a 4 2Do activities on purple mash based on thinking about our emotions and creating a poster about ourselves.

Happy Monday Golden Eagles!

Below are three Maths challenges for you to wake up your brain on a Monday. Answers revealed tomorrow.

From Mr Shenton

Friday 15th May

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

Thank you for all the work that you are sending in. How did you get on with the riddles from yesterday? Here's the answers for you: 
Q: It starts out tall, but the longer it stands, the shorter it grows. What is
it? A candle.
Q: What belongs to you but is used more by others? Your name.
Q: What goes up and never comes down? Your age.
Q: How can a man go 8 days without sleep? He only sleeps at night.
Riddles and brain teasers for kids
Q: I'm full of keys but I can't open any door. What am I? A piano.
Q: What has a thumb and four fingers but is not alive? A glove.
Q: A man found an old coin and declared that the date on it was 150
B.C. This could not be true. Why? Because B.C. is counting backwards from
the birth of Christ. If Christ hadn't been born yet, there were no dates in B.C.
yet!
Q: Which is heavier, a pound of bricks or a pound of feathers? The same - a
pound is a pound!
Q: I'm light as a feather, yet the strongest man can't hold me for more than a
minute. What am I? Breath.

 

I have uploaded maths and spag mats for you. I also would like to set you a challenge. As you know when washing our hands currently we should be singing "Happy Birthday" or counting to 20. Can any of you write a replacement song/ poem for happy birthday that would take 20 seconds that perhaps the rest of our class could use for a change? I look forward to hearing your ideas!

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe. 

Miss Withers 

Thursday 14th May 

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

Hope you are all keeping safe! Thank you to Nami for your VE day medal photo and Lorenzo for the photo of the bundt cake that you made- scroll down to have a look! 

There is a SPAG and maths mat for you to complete below. Question 1 on the maths mat asks you to draw a circle with a compass- don't worry if you don't have one of these you could just draw around a bowl/cup etc instead.

Q: When you look for something, why is it always in the last place you
look? Because when you find it, you stop looking!

rode out on Friday. How was that possible? Friday was the name of his
horse.
Q: One night, a king and a queen went into a castle. There was nobody in
the castle, and no one came out of the castle. In the morning, three people

Good morning Golden Eagles! Well done to those who worked through yesterday’s Maths reasoning paper. Below is the second one of the week. I’ve also attached the answers this time, so if there is anything you don’t answer correctly and don’t understand why you got it wrong, please let me know.

Please find attached a maths challenge and a SPAG mat. I have also uploaded a VE day medal design competition. It would be great to see your designs. Please email them to the school office and they will forward them on to me! 

I hope you are all keeping safe!

Miss Withers 

Monday 11th May 2020

Hello Golden Eagles!

Hope you had a great long weekend. Here are the answers from last Thursday’s Maths challenges:

Q1: 26-10=16    21-16=5 so the answer is 5

As there are only 5 left-handed boys in the class, only 5 out of the ten people with glasses could be left-handed - so there must be a minimum of 5 left who are right-handed.

Q2:

27th May = Tuesday     3rd June = Tuesday    10th June = Tuesday

17th June = Tuesday     20th June = Friday

 Q3: Orange = y   Mango = 5y   Total = 6y  

£1.74 divided by 6 = 29p.  An orange is 29p.    A mango is 5x29p= £1.45

 Q4:  1/3 are roses.  Of the remaining 2/3, a 1/4 are carnations and 3/4 are asters.

Therefore, there are 3 times as many asters as carnations.  30 divided by 3 is 10. Therefore, there must be 10 carnations!

 Q5: Tom has 45p.  Peter has (45 divided by 3) x2 =15p x2 =30p

John has 30p - 12p = 18p!

As this week would have been SATS week, I thought I would get you to sample what the Maths reasoning papers would have been like. So, I have attached a paper below for you to have a go at.

 Good luck!

 From Mr Shenton

Monday 11th May 

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

I hope you are all keeping safe. Did you have a good weekend? I wonder if any of you did anything to celebrate VE day. There were lots of flags and banners in the streets near to me and some people were enjoying a socially distanced street party in their front gardens. Did you watch Boris Johnson's announcement yesterday? Year 6 may be going back to school in June depending on how things progress. We will keep you updated with any new developments regarding this as soon as we know any more information. 

I have uploaded some maths and SPAG work for you to complete today as well as a VE day reading comprehension which I hope you will find interesting. Have a good day!

Miss Withers 

 

Thursday 7th May 

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

I hope you are all keeping well. I have dug out my old sewing machine to help woth a local community project sewing aprons for the NHS. Although very enthusiastic, my sewing skills have decreased over the past few years. Sadly my partner has lost several t-shirts in order for me to practise my new skills (he doesn't know this yet!) I went for a lovely cycle by the river yesterday and finished a 1000 piece Disney puzzle! Thank you to all those children who are sending me the things they have been working on- I love to see what you have been getting up to"! 

i have uploaded a SPAG and maths mat as well as an English booklet for you to have a go at!

Enjoy the long weekend

Miss Withers 

 

Thursday 7th May 2020

Hello again Golden Eagles! Hope you are all well and have had a great week so far. Below are the answers to Tuesday’s Maths challenges. Who managed to get 4 out of 4? Even 3, 2 or 1 out of 4 is still pretty good.

Q1: One degree

Q2: After spending one third of my money on the guitar I have two thirds left. I spend half of this on a microphone, so this is again one third. I then have one third of my original money remaining. I spend one quarter of this on the kazoo. One quarter of one third is one twelfth. I therefore have three quarters of one third of my money remaining. Three quarters of one third is one quarter of my money remaining. (1/3 = 4/12.   4/12 - 1/12 = 3/12.  3/12 = 1/4)

Q3: If the numbers are in Roman numerals, Take I from XIX (19 in Roman numerals), you are left with XX - 20 in Roman numerals.

Q4: 68. The first digit is the number of letters. The second digit is the position of the month in the calendar.

 

Here are the bank holiday weekend challenges. Again, answers revealed next week.

Q1: Of the 26 boys in a class, 21 are right handed.  If 10 of the boys in the class wear glasses, what is the least number of right handed boys in the class who wear glasses.

Q2: If 20th May is a Tuesday, what day is 20th June?

Q3: A mango costs five times as much as an orange.  I pay £1.74 for one mango and one orange.  Find the cost of an orange.

Q4: In a garden there are three types of flowers.  One third of them are roses. A quarter of the rest are carnations. There are 30 asters in the garden.  How many carnations are there?

Q5: Tom has 45p. If John had 12p more he would have the same as Peter. If Tom spent one third of his money, he would also have the same as Peter. How much does John have?

Have a great long weekend!

From Mr Shenton

Wednesday 6th May 

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

Thank you for your photographs of your Mayan masks! You are all so creative-scroll down to have a look at Sam A and Lorenzo's masks. I do wish we were all back at school together so we could make a fantastic display with your beautiful masks! 

I hope you got on well with the reading comprehension yesterday and the maths mat. Today I have uploaded a maths and spag mat for you to have a go at. I have also uploaded a list of very tricky words! Can you look them up in a dictionary? What is their definition? Can you use them in a sentence? It's always fun to expand your vocabulary! 

Enjoy

Miss Withers

Tuesday 5th May 

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

I hope you had a good day yesterday. Thank you so much to all the wonderful Mayan masks that were sent to me from Rory, Nami, Jayden, Esther and Sam E- can you work out who is behind each mask!? Also congratulations to Lorenzo who has been working on his own science space project! It's lovely to see so many of you working really hard at home during this time.

Today I have uploaded a reading comprehension and a maths activity mat for you to complete. The answers are at the bottom of each page so make sure you have a go first before checking your answers!

Hope you have a good day

Miss Withers

Tuesday 5th May 2020

Good morning Golden Eagles!

Here are the answers from the weekend’s Maths challenges:

  1. 12
  2. They both weigh exactly a pound!
  3. 10p and 1p - the other coin can be a penny!
  4. Dividing by half is the same as multiplying by 2.
  5. None - it's a hole!
  6. 42 and 24 years old.
  7. Thirty grapes at normal price cost £1.20, therefore grapes cost 4p each. Ten grapes and 5 strawberries cost 80p at normal price, the grapes must cost 40p therefore the strawberries cost 8p each. Ten strawberries and ten apricots cost £2.40 at normal price, the strawberries cost 80p, therefore the apricots cost 16p each. So one apricot + one strawberry and one grape cost 28p in total.
  8. At 59 minutes.

 Below are four more for you to try. Good luck! Answers revealed soon….

  1. If the hour hand of a clock moves 1/60th of a degree every minute, how many degrees will it move in an hour?
  2. I spend a third of my money on a guitar, half the rest on a microphone and a quarter of what I then have left on a kazoo. What proportion of my original money do I have left?
  3. How can you take 1 from 19 and leave 20?
  4. Here is a list of months and a code for each:
    • January: 71
    • February: 82
    • March: 53
    • April: 54
    • May: 35
    • June: 46
    • July: 47

What is the code for the month of August?

 

Stay safe and happy!

From Mr Shenton

Monday 4th May 2020

Friday 1st May 2020

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

Happy Friday! Well done for getting through another week of home learning! You should all be very proud of yourselves for your hard work. 

Today I have set for you some tasks based around the Mayans on Purple Mash:

1) There is a slideshow to read through containing information about the Mayans

2) Mayan mask- see if you can impersonate a Mayan man/woman. You can even include thoughts in a thought bubble

3) Using Storyboard write a story based around what you have learned about the Mayans. 

I hope you have a great day and a lovely weekend, 

from Miss Withers

 

Dear Golden Eagle Class,

I hope you’re all having a good week. The weather seems to be picking up at least and it is a little brighter outside. Thank you so much to all the children who are sending me their work on the Mayans! Make sure you have a listen to Mr Jackson’s assembly this week to see if you’ve managed to receive a certificate.  

I hope you are all enjoying the work on Mayans. Today's home learning is based around Maya writing. Have a read through the powerpoint and have a go at the logogram activity and Maya writing fact hunt. I have also attached a reading comprehension for you to complete. There are 3 different comprehensions, each comprehension has either 1,2 or 3 stars at the top of the page. The more stars, the harder the comprehension so choose one which you are comfortable with, I will post the answers to the comprehension tomorrow morning. 

I have also uploaded some Extras on Doodle Maths about fractions. Have a go attempting one of the tasks if you have time. 

Hope you have a great day!

Hello again Golden Eagles!

Hope you are all well. I have attached today's Maths - lots of reasoning questions (and also the answers). It should take approximately 45 minutes, You can time yourself if you want, but don't worry if you go slightly over the time. Thank you to Sam A and Lorenzo for sharing with me how they have been getting on with the Maths challenges I have been setting.

Have a great Wednesday!

Dear Golden Eagle Class,

I hope you are all keeping well and managed to get out for a bit yesterday in spite of the rain! I gave my partner a haircut yesterday as he obviously can’t get to the barbers- I thought I did a great job, however he was less than impressed. It’s a lot harder than it looks! I also made a delicious butternut squash curry and attempted to make onion bhajis for the first time. Thank you very much to Jayden for sending me through your interesting powerpoint all about the God Kimi. Nami also sent me a word document categorising different Gods which I have uploaded for you to see.

I have been in contact with several of your prospective secondary schools and have been telling them all about you. I know it must be a little unsettling not knowing how the transition to Year 7 will work, but please reassure yourself that everyone is in the same situation and we will do all we can to make it as smooth as possible.

Today’s home learning is about Mayan food!! Please read through the powerpoint I have uploaded. Have a go at working out the anagrams (you have to rearrange the letters to work out the name of the food).  You then need to do a little research about one or more of the foods which you can add to your project book or do on the computer if you prefer. The last task is to work out whether chocolate or corn are more important. I have also uploaded a couple of recipes which are obviously not compulsory but might be fun to attempt!

I hope you all have a lovely day!

Good morning Golden Eagles!

Well done to those who have completed my Maths tasks so far. Thank you to Sam E and Nami for sharing their work with me too. Below are some algebra challenges. Think back to the work we did in the Autumn term - remember when a number is next to a letter, you multiply (e.g. if n = 5, then 3n = 15). Also, remember to write the number before the letter (e.g. 3n, and not n3).

Have a great day, despite the rain!

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

I hope you are all keeping safe. I'm not sure about Woking, but where I live it is a very miserable morning with lots of rain- bring back the sun! It was lovely to speak to some of your parents/ carers yesterday and I'm pleased to hear you are all doing so well and coping during this bizarre lock down situation. Thank you to Lewis and Rory for your photos of Mayan instruments, I have uploaded them below for the whole class to admire. Who has been going on TT Rockstars lately? I believe it is the battle of the houses this week? I wonder who will win! Some of your parents have also said that you are using BBC Bitesize to do aspects of your home learning- it's really great to hear that you are all finding a way of learning from home that suits you, I know it isn't an easy situation but try and keep motivated to do at least one home learning task per day- I promise you'll feel better for it!! If you have any questions, please email the school office and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. 

I have uploaded some work on Mayan explorers. Open the powerpoint and read through the instructions. The photographs have been uploaded onto the website so you should be able to access them. I hope you have a lovely day!

Monday 27th April 2020

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

I hope you all had a good weekend! We had a very fun Zoom quiz with our family on Saturday night which became very competitive! I also baked a salted caramel cake which I have to say was very tasty! I have uploaded a few photos that I have received- one of Sam and his Mayan instrument and one of Tommy snorkelling on holiday in Mexico. Remind your parents to give me permission to post your photos of the class webpage when they email them to me as I would love to share some more of your work! I spoke to some of your parents/ carers on Friday and will be calling others over the next few days. Let your parents/ carers know to expect a call from a withheld number as I am having to call from my personal mobile phone. 

Todays learning is about Mayan Gods! Please have a read through the powerpoint and then create a factfile on one or more of the Gods! You can either do this in your Mayan project book or online. Feel free to be as creative as you like and use the method that is easiest for you. 

I hope you have a good day!

Good morning Golden Eagles! Here are the answers to the weekend Maths lateral thinking questions:

Q1: Seven (take away the ‘s’ and it becomes ‘even’).

Q2: 888 + 88 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 1000
Q3: 1, 2 and 3

Q4: 4 children get 1 apple each while the fifth child gets the basket with the remaining apple still in it.

Q5: 141       Q6: SWIMS      Q7: Because there was a third girl, which makes them triplets!
Q8: The tide raises both the water and the boat so the water will never reach the fifth rung.

I have uploaded today’s task below. Ask an adult to read each challenge card to you. Your task is to accurately draw and name the shape that is being described. Is there more than one answer for any of the challenge cards?

Good luck!

From Mr Shenton

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

Have a listen to the music on the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36Ul4dprTXg  Can you work out what sort of instruments are making these sounds? Can you recognise any of the instruments? Think about what you know about the Maya. Think about their culture and their beliefs. They lived their lives thinking about the earth and the gods. They even played sport like that! So, why do you think they played music? Why was it important? 

Music was seen as an essential way of communicating with the gods. They saw music as being food for and a gift from the gods. Music scared enemies in battle, it was played in sacrifice, religious ceremonies and festivities. It was played to summon the gods. Do you play any musical instruments? What does it feel like to get wrapped up in a piece of music you are playing? 

Listen again to the piece of music and write down what it makes you think/ feel. 

Read through the presentation below. Your challenge is to see if you can make a Mayan instrument! Try your best and I would love to see any photos of successes! Good luck! 

Here is a video of Maya children playing their instruments. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8ee3RrSbJQ

Have a good day!

Happy Friday Golden Eagles!

Answer to yesterday’s Maths problem:

2+4+6+8+10 = 30          1+3+5+7+9 = 25

Even numbers up to 20 = 110.    Odd numbers up to 20 = 100

For every 10 difference is 5.  There are 100 x 10's in 1000

So, difference = 100x5 = 500

 

Here’s some lateral thinking Maths weekend challenges for you to get your teeth into:

  • I am an odd number. Take away one letter and I become even. What number am I?
  • Using only addition, how do you add eight 8’s and get the number 1000?
  • Which 3 numbers have the same answer whether they’re added or multiplied together?
  • There is a basket containing 5 apples, how do you divide the apples among 5 children so that each child has 1 apple while 1 apple remains in the basket?
  • There is a 3-digit number. The second digit is four times as big as the third digit, while the first digit is three less than the second digit. What is the number?
  • What word looks the same backwards and upside down?
  • Two girls were born to the same mother, at the same time, on the same day, in the same month and in the same year and yet somehow they’re not twins. Why not?
  • A ship anchored in a port has a ladder which hangs over the side. The length of the ladder is 200cm, the distance between each rung in 20cm and the bottom rung touches the water. The tide rises at a rate of 10cm an hour. When will the water reach the fifth rung? 

Have a great weekend!

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

How did you get on with your Mayan writing yesterday? Thank you very much to Tommy and Esther for your very informative powerpoints all about the Mayans. It was lovely to see all your hard work and reserach. It was also lovely to hear from Lorenzo who has been busy cookign and gardening, Rhyanna who has been playing board games and has created her own dolphin research project, Tommy who is helping his Mum create a vegetable patch and playing on his Xbox and William who has been enjoying long walks and even seen a woodpecker! 

Today we are going to be looking at the Mayan number system. Have a read through the powerpoint and then attempt the questions on the worksheet below. I have uploaded the answers as well so you can check your work when you've finished!

Good Luck! 

Miss WIthers 

Thursday 23rd April 2020

Hello again Golden Eagles! Some tricky word problems yesterday (especially Q3!)

Well done if you persevered with them! Here are the answers:

Q1:

(a)  4 bolts and 3 nuts are exactly half of 8 bolts and 6 nuts which we know weigh 138 grams.  Therefore 4 bolts and 3 nuts = 138 grams divided by 2 = 69 grams.

(b) 11 bolts and 11 nuts are both the examples above added together because we have 8 bolts and 3 bolts = 11 bolts, and 6 nuts and 5 nuts = 11 nuts.  Therefore 11 bolts and 11 nuts = 138 grams + 71 grams = 209 grams.

(c) To find out the weight of 3 bolts and 3 nuts we first need to find out the weight of 1 bolt and 1 nut.  We know from our answer to (b) that 11 bolts and 11 nuts = 209 grams.  Therefore 1 bolt and 1 nut = 209 divided by 11 = 19 grams.  Therefore 3 bolts and 3 nuts = 19x3= 57 grams.

(d) We know from our answer to (a) that 4 bolts and 3 nuts = 69 grams.  We know from our answer to (c) that 3 bolts and 3 nuts = 57 grams.  Therefore 1 bolt = 69 grams - 57 grams = 12 grams.

Q2:

There are 3 jumps.  One from 1/2 to x, one from x to y, and one from y to 3/4.  We need to find a number that is divisible by 3 as well as 2 and 4.  This number is 12 so we change both fractions to 1/12s.  ½ becomes 6/12 and ¾ becomes 9/12’s , x becomes 7/12 and y becomes 8/12.  The answer is y = 8/12

Q3:

First number of the 4 could vary between 9 numbers - 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 or 9.

If number begins with 1, the second number could be 1 out of 10 numbers -

10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19.

So variation for 2 numbers beginning with 1 is 10.

If third number has a variation of 10 then each number above eg 10, 11, 12, 13 etc has

a variation of 10 e.g. 101, 102, 103.

So for 3 numbers:-

Total number = 1x10x10

Same for 4th number.  So if number begins with 1, the variations are 1x10x10x10=1000

But there are 9 different ways of starting the number so total = 9x1000=9000

 

Here is today’s question. Just one today – it is a brain frazzler!

Mr Shenton is completely mad.  He adds up all of the even numbers between 0 and 1000 (including the number 1000), then he adds up all of the odd numbers between 0 and 1000, and finally he calculates the difference between the two totals.  What answer does he get?

Wednesday 22nd April 2020

Dear Golden Eagle Class,

Hope you are keeping well! I have been reading some more interesting letters about your Easter break- Sam A has begun writing a book, Jade has been delivering homemade cookies to her neighbours and Lewis has been helping his Mum with the gardening and going for long dog walks! Also thank you to William for your powerpoint on life as a Mayan child, it was really interesting! Although it is not compulsory to send me anything, it is really nice to see work/ photos of what you have been getting up to.

 

Were you all able to find Mesoamerica? It was where we call Mexico and Central American today.

 

The Mayans used hieroglyphs to communicate. Watch the following video to learn a little bit more about their way of writing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgsQndSyfHg

I have uploaded a few s including the different hieroglyphs. Have a read and make some notes and then try writing your name or perhaps a sentence for someone in your house to decode!!

 

Have a good day!

Wednesday 22nd April 2020

Good morning again Golden Eagles!

Hope you are all staying safe. Here are the answers (and workings out) to my Maths challenges from yesterday:

Q1: First subtract 51 from 65 to find out what 2 tapes cost.  Then divide your answer by 2, to find out what one tape costs. 

65-51=14     14 divided by 2=7    Therefore one tape costs £7.

Q2:

2 shirts, a tie and a jacket cost £155+£45=£200

2 shirts = £200-£120=£80

1 shirt = £80 divided by 2

1 shirt = £40

Q3:

3 cheese and tomato pizzas and 3 garlic breads will cost £10.60 + £6.50 =£17.10

1 cheese and tomato pizza will cost £17.10 divided by 3 = £5.70

 

Today’s challenges are below. Again, answers revealed tomorrow.

Q1:  8 bolts and 6 nuts weigh 138 grams.  3 bolts and 5 nuts weigh 71 grams.  Work out the weight of the following:

(a) 4 bolts and 3 nuts

(b) 11 bolts and 11 nuts

(c) 3 bolts and 3 nuts

(d) 1 bolt

 

Q2: The numbers ½ , x, y, ¾ are in increasing order of size.  The difference between successive numbers in this list are all the same.  What is the value of y?

 

Q3: The last part of a telephone number has four digits, e.g.

                       7814            1487      2103      2772

The last part of the telephone number can start with any digit apart from zero. 

The other three digits can be any number.  How many four digit numbers are there?

Dear Golden Eagle Class,

I really enjoyed hearing about your Easter breaks- you have all made the most of the lockdown. Rory has been going on long cycle rides, Jayden has been getting creative with acrylic paints, Ava has been baking and creating stained glass windows, Maddie made a papier mache house, Nami and his brothers camped in the garden, Sam E has been planting sunflowers and Charis has been having late night sleepovers with her sisters!

Our new topic for this term is the Mayan Civilisation. Some of the work set will be online, however it would be really nice if you could create some sort of “workbook” or folder where you can collect all the research and tasks you that aren’t online. It would be really great to see everyone’s work when we get back to school!

The Maya Civilisation took place in an area that was called “Mesoamerica”. Can you find out which part of the world that is in now? Perhaps you could use an Atlas/ Globe/ Internet to draw a map of the world and label where Mesoamerica used to be.

The Mayas built amazing cities like Tikal (which they called 'Yax Mutal') and Palenque. Even though they lived in different cities, ruled by different kings and queens, the Mayas shared a lot of common beliefs and traditions. They were experts at reading the stars and even built their cities as a map of the sky! They were also inspired by the creatures of the forest and shared many legends about animals, plants and nature spirits.

Follow this link to a website about what life was like for children during the Mayan period. Make notes on information you find interesting and create a leaflet or a powerpoint with the key information.

https://mayas.mrdonn.org/children.html

You should also still have some tasks on Doodle Maths to complete as well or take part in the inter-house tournament that Miss Humphreys has set up on TTRockstars.

I hope you have a good day,

From Miss Withers

 

Good morning Golden Eagles!

Hope you are all well. Here are the answers to my Maths challenges from yesterday:

Q1: I won £540,000 (I wish!)

Q2: I am now 26 years old. In 38 years’ time, when I am 64, my age will be both a square number and a cube number.

Q3: I am 9 years old now.

Below are some new tricky word problems for today. Good luck and don’t give up! Think – can you use algebra to simplify the question? Answers again revealed tomorrow.

Q1.  If 2 CD’s and 3 tapes cost £51, and 2 CD’s and 5 tapes cost £65, what is the cost of 1 tape?

Q2.  If a shirt and tie cost £45, a shirt and jacket cost £155, and a jacket and a tie cost £120, what is the cost of the shirt?

Q3.  If 2 cheese and tomato pizzas and one garlic bread cost £10.60, and one cheese and tomato pizza and 2 garlic breads cost £6.50, what is the total cost of 1 cheese and tomato pizza and 1 garlic bread?

Dear Golden Eagle Class, 

I hope you are all keeping well and managed to have a happy Easter during lockdown! Itwas certainly a very unusual break for us all!

A lot of my Easter break has been spent doing puzzles and wordsearches at home as well as a few competitive games of scrabble and chess! My mum has also lent me her bicycle so I have been going out for cycle rides each day as my daily exercise. I hadn't cycled on the road for a while so was a little nervous to start with, however it's actually much nicer now the roads are so quiet so I have really enjoyed it! We have signed up to volunteer at our local foodbank a few times a week where we can go and help pack up parcels of food shopping which we then deliver to those members of our local community who are unable to get out to the supermarkets during this time. 

I think it's really important to keep in touch with people during this time so we have been arranging online phone conversations with friends and family members a few times a week where we can play games/ do quizes and catch up. All of which has been great fun! We have been thinking of what we are looking forward to doing after lockdown is finished- what are you looking forward to/ missing the most? 

I have also been practising my art skills with the help of a You Tube tutorial which teaches you how to draw famous Disney cartoon characters. Here is the link if you enjoy drawing/ Disney- I'm sure your attempts will be a lot better than mine!!

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLflf8xbnbx65Z2oa2F9uqKZxJJn-4Nynr 

I would love to hear back from you all about what you have been up to during your Easter lockdown so I have set up a 2Do Publish Task where you can write a letter to me on Purple Mash. I have also set some problem solving tasks on Doodle Maths. I do know that there were some issues with Doodle Maths before Easter unfortunately so don't panic if you have trouble accessing it straight away and try Mr Shenton's challenges below! If you have found any fun activities to do during lock down, please include them in your letter and then I can share them with the class on the webpage!

I hope you have a good day back doing home learning and are able to get into a bit of a routine again. 

from Miss WIthers 

Hello Golden Eagles!
