Good Morning Beech Class
Friday again! How did that happen? I am sure somebody is stealing days out of my week!
Maths, today, is very slightly different. There is no video clip to accompany the worksheet. The questions are all about solving word problems with more than one step. The most important thing to remember is that you won't arrive at the answer with just one calculation. You will need to read the question carefully and decide which operation you need to carry out first and then what you will need to do to complete the task.
Take your time and think in a calm, methodical way. As always, mark your answers when you have finished and don't be disheartened by any mistakes. Try and unpick the question to see where you went wrong. It really isn't about the number of ticks on the page. It is about what you know at the end of the lesson that you didn't know at the beginning.
I have thrown in an extra challenge sheet for anybody who wants to celebrate the end of the week with extra maths! This is completely optional.
Final day of writing your balanced argument. I hope you have enjoyed investigating the real life argument about what should happen to The Parthenon Marbles. Several of you have sent me a link to a video clip of a real life debate about them. I will post it below for anybody else who might be interested. I suspect that it is a debate that will continue for some time to come as there are plausible (I really like this word!) arguments on both sides. I am really looking forward to seeing what the general opinion is in Beech Class. Are we mostly in favour of keeping them or returning them?
Have a lovely weekend. I know that you and your parents all deserve some quality down time as a reward for all of the effort you show every week. Thank you. You are what makes my job such a pleasure.
Stay safe, well and kind,
