Tuesday 7th July

Good morning everyone!

 

We hope you enjoyed learning about where food comes from yesterday. Today you are going to consider what it is like for children who are hungry. 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:

 

Should we take any responsibility for world hunger?

 

Today you are going to write a letter to our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and convince him why we should help people who do not have enough to eat. Think of any reasons that you can… human rights, kindness, morals, religion and beliefs, equality, etc. Split them into paragraphs and explain each point.

There are plenty of facts and statistics on the websites below to help you:

Maths

 

This week you are going to use your knowledge of the four operations to consider the properties of numbers.

Today you are going to use efficient mental methods for solving calculations with larger numbers up to millions.

 

Now have a look at the main maths task below:

 

If you need another reminder of using efficient mental methods look at the shared example below:

Now choose from the mild, spicy or hot challenges. (If you feel confident try more than one!)

If you are feeling really confident with using efficient mental methods, challenge yourself with these extra mastery challenges:

Now complete your propeller board using the numbers Side A 30-90 : 77

                                                                                  Side B 10-90 : 77

 

Also remember to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.

Topic:

 

Look at packaging and food adverts. How do these companies draw us in and make us want to buy their food? Look at the pictures below of sweets, pizza and Dairylea lunch snacks. Colourful, simple, classy, funny, elegant, quirky… so many different ways! Look through your cupboards at home and see what it looks like. Which is the best design?

 

You are going to choose an item of food and design the packaging for it.

Think about font, colour, images, catchphrases, comparisons, fun, design, layout…etc.

What would make it catch your eye if you saw it on the supermarket shelf? I can’t wait to see these – if you can make Brussel sprouts ‘fun’, then I think Tescos might give you a job!
