Thursday 9th July

Good morning everyone!

 

We hope you enjoyed learning about what people eat around the world yesterday. Today you are going to create an advert for food of your choice. We would like to see how you are getting on, so remember you can send us your work on our class email addresses below:

 

Miss Harcourt: falcons@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

Mrs Walters: kestrels@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

 

Enjoy!

From Miss Harcourt and Mrs Walters 😊

 

English:

 

Today you are going to write a TV script for an advert for food. This could be McDonalds, Pizza Hut, a local restaurant, some particular food like chips or fish-fingers – whatever you want!

 

Refer back to your product designs on Tuesday (adverts and packaging) and you are going to write a full script for the TV advert. You can do it for the product you designed, or do a new one.

 

Watch a few current/recent examples at the moment and create your own for a brand of food. What kind of language is being used?

 

Writing a script:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks2-write-a-script/z4tmd6f

 

This advert is about McCafe (coffee at McDonalds) and they are trying to show how complicated and expensive other places are, but how cheap and simple they are. There isn’t a lot of talking, so for your script you need to explain what is happening in each scene.

 

E.g.

Music playing in the background – funky trumpets.

 

Scene 1:

Man is handed a tiny, tiny cup of coffee in a café and looks at it like he can’t believe how small it is.

 

Scene 2:

Woman and man are at different shops and looking very confused at the menu of hundreds of different types of coffee and don’t know what to choose.

Man says: “I just want a coffee”.

Maths

 

This week you have been using your knowledge of the four operations to consider the properties of numbers. Today we are going to review how confident you feel and use your skills to solve problems.

 

Now have a look at the main maths task below:

Now have a go at this reflection task. You will need to use your reasoning skills and think about the problem.

Now let’s explore our thinking further. Can you solve the power puzzle below?

If you think you need more practise at using the written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division then have a look at the Strengthening tasks below.

 

If you feel confident with using the written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division then have a look at the Deepening tasks below.

If you want another challenge have a go at the extra mastery challenges.

Now complete your propeller board using the numbers Side A 30-90 : 76

                                                                                  Side B 10-90 : 76

 

Also remember to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.

Topic:

 

Look at food and its properties. The Food Groups, etc. But delve deeper.

What are superfoods? Do some of your own research.

What should you eat more and less of?

Design your perfect week of food – some treats – but mostly for a balanced diet for maximum benefit for your bodies!
