Tuesday 12th January

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday!

 

I loved playing your monster games on Purple Mash - some of them were so tricky!  I am trying to see if I can share them so you can all play each others.  We thought you all did well at the start of the year with this, but you have improved so much - your coding skills are fantastic!

 

A little message to start your day:

Hi Year 6!

This is "Hi Year 6!" by Westcourt School on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

Your maths for today is going to be applying all the skills that you have learnt about percentages to solve problems.  Watch the video from Miss Hart then have a go at answering the questions.

She would also love to see the maths you are doing from the video, so as well as sending it to the class email address, you can email her your learning too:  deputyhead@westcourt.kent.sch.uk

Year 6 % lesson 5

This is "Year 6 % lesson 5" by Westcourt School on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

Remember, you have the skills to be able to answer all these questions - don't let yourself have a wobble because they appear slightly different.  There are just words around the number sentence that you need.

 

Here's an example:

 

Miss Pattenden was collecting all the house points from around the school.  There were 340 house points in total from all the children.  65% of these came from Key Stage 2.  How many house points had Key stage 2 earnt?

 

Read it a second time, underlining the important information:

 

Miss Pattenden was collecting all the house points from around the school.  There were 340 house points in total from all the children.  65% of these came from Key Stage 2.  How many house points had Key stage 2 earnt in total?

 

You can then write it as a number sentence:

 

65% of 340 = 

 

You can then solve the number sentence in the same way you did yesterday.  Remember to always check that your answer makes sense.

Now try these questions:

 

1) Miss Sexton has just drawnt he chocolate raffle.  13% of the 300 tickets were bought by Sri Lanka class.  How many tickets did the class buy?

2) Camp Half blood has got lots of students.  22% of them are children of Zeus.  There are 120 children at Camp Half Blood.  How many of them are Zeus' children?

3) Dominoes have been even busier since lockdown started!  Out of the 258 pizzas they sold yesterday, 33% of them were pepperoni.  How many pizzas in total were pepperoni?

4) Tesco also had a huge influx of people needing toilet roll.  They sold 61% of the 780 they had in stock.  How many toilet rolls did they sell? 

5) There were 355 elves in the North Pole when the Polar Express arrived.  17% of them were wearing green socks, the rest were wearing red.

a - how many were wearing green socks?

b - how many were wearing red socks?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your next maths challenge is back in your packs.

Today I would like you to complete all your short division questions.  Remember to carry over and show your remainders.

You may also need place holders.

Arithmetic is really important because it's the skills you need to be able to apply to all your maths problems.

Your writing about your monsters was fantastic!

I loved the detailed descriptions you gave and there were some very creative sub-headings laugh.

 

Today we are continuing with the Monsters work from your pack - it's a creative one!

 

Complete activity 11:

In your packs you will find a booklet filled with SPaG activities.

 

Today I would like you to complete the activities on nouns.

Today is the final day of our computing work.

Remind yourself of what the features of your game were- think about the coding skills you used.

 

There is a very popular magazine for people who are into games called PC Gamer.  Today you are going into competition with them!

 

Log on to Purple Mash and complete the gaming magazine activity.  I can't wait to see your designs!

Have a fantastic day and I cannot wait to see all the learning you have completed!

 

Remember to send it to the class email address and I'll upload it to the class page.
