Year 6 Forum

Good morning Year 6,

Hope you are all well.

You have already completed a week's work and we are very proud of you all. Some of you have sent in your work to the sfsremote@sfet.org.uk email address and we have really enjoyed this. You will now see there is a ' Year 6 Work Submission' form in this area (just look on the left hand side now) where you can upload any work you would like to receive feedback for. You can also comment below with any questions you have for your class teachers. But remember any technical issues still need to be emailed to sfsremote@sfet.org.uk.

Keep up the fantastic work and know that we are very proud of you all.

Mrs Pearson, Miss Whitbourn, Mr Strachan, Miss Pritchard, Mrs Jones, Mrs Blake and Mrs Wrighton.

    Hello year 6 teachers I have really been strugling with the algebrah this week so far in maths and would strongly appreciate it if I could have some advice as to what to do. My parents have tried to help me but I still don't really understand. Please could you help me as soon as possible. Many thanks Michaela Kent 6L.
  • Miss Whitbourn 7 months ago
    Hi Michaela, Have you had a look at the Loom videos for each of the lessons this week? I would suggest following these videos and pausing at intervals to have a go at a question after it have been explained. You could do this directly into your exercise book a little bit like what we would do in class on a whiteboard. If you are then able to attempt some of the question from the book then that's great. Remember you do not need to complete all three challenges in the book. It is a tricky concept, Algebra. In secondary school you may be asked "Has anyone come across algebra before?" and you will be able to say yes! That's a great achievement so don't worry yourself if it isn't completely clear at the moment. Miss Whitbourn
  • Michaela Kent 7 months ago
    Thank you for your advice Miss Whitbourn I am moving onto maths right now and will try your advice. Michaela Kent.
  • MichaelaKent 7 months ago
    The loom video for this lesson really helped me but I was still really slow with the questions. I do think that this lesson was easier for me than the others. Thank you so much for your advice MichaelaKent 6L.

    For today’s maths do you have to do it all or can u do the challenge only as it takes quite a long time to do ??
  • Theo Easton 7 months ago
    Hi everyone, just wondering if for Friday's lesson you only decide whether its odd even or prime up to the twelve times table, or if you go further than that?

  • Mrs Blake 7 months ago
    Hi Year 6. Mave, for today's Maths lesson, you can complete as much as you can in your hour. I will be very impressed if you can get all the way up to 100 in that time! Make sure you choose the numbers that you will find challenging as the smaller numbers are easier to find the factors of than the easier ones. Theo, like I said, choose the numbers which you are going to be challenging, but make sure you find all the factors. For example, 64 will have a factors of 16 and 32, so you will need to think wider than just your 12 times table! Isobel,if you mean the Loom for today's lesson, there aren't any pen edits for it as I typed my examples instead! Mrs Blake
  • Molly Hilson 7 months ago
    Thank you for the Loom Video for lesson 5, which explains a lot. Is it possible to have the answers (colour coded 100 grid) for it? Thank you!
  • Charlie L 7 months ago
    Just looked at the text for Monday's English - how do we know where chapter one ends?
  • Mr Strachan 7 months ago
    Hello Molly. There isn't an answer grid available for this task I'm afraid but I'll talk you through the principles behind working out these answers. Calculating the numbers which only have prime factors is easier than the former. As you know, numbers that are odd are not divisible by an even number, so, to work out the answer here, you need only identify the odd numbers between 0 and 100 that aren't prime. So, 9, 15, 21, 25, 27, 33, 35, 39, 45, 49, 51, 55, 57, 63, 65, 69, 75, 77, 85, 87, 91, 93, 95 and 99 fit into this category as they are all divisible by odd numbers other than 1 and themselves. There is a pattern here! Can you see it when looking at a 10x10 grid and having highlighted these numbers? When identifying the numbers that only have factors which are even, you need to think outside of the box a little more. A starting point may be to work through the 2 times tables - seems reasonable. However, when you get to 6, already we have a number that has a factor which is odd (3). Even if you exclude all of the 2 times table multipliers that are odd, this still happens (2 x 6 = 12 which is divisable by 3). So, consider the power of 2 instead: 2¹ = 2 (2) 2² = 4 (2 x 2) 2³ = 8 (2 x 2 x 2) Etc. So, it will continue thus: 16 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2), 32 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2), 64 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2). And that is all of them under 100 but the numbers continue infinitely. The reason this works is because your multiplier never has a factor which is odd as it is always 2. If you multiply any integer by a multiplier which has a factor which is odd, your answer will follow suit and have at least one factor which is also odd. I'm sorry if this is confusing but if you research the power of 2 online, it might make it clearer. As for the 'What If...' question, that requires some trial and error and I'm sure, if you gave it a go, you were successful in that endeavour. Hope this helps and have a glorious weekend! Mr Strachan
  • Mrs Blake 7 months ago
    Hi Jude - well done for finishing your film! You can either click on 'Year 6 Work Submission' and upload it there or else you can try sending it to this email: sfssubmissions@sfet.org.uk. We look forward to watching it!
  • Amelia Smith 6 months ago
    I have just watched the lesson 4 loom video and I don’t understand at the end how the result could be 2d 4g = 12. Would this give a result of 20 legs?
  • Isabella Griffith 6 months ago
    for some reason i can't play the loom videos. it says i need 2 enter a password. what is the password?
  • Mrs Wrighton 6 months ago
    Hi Amelia, Mrs Wrighton here, the 2 stands for 2 legs and 4 stands for 4 legs. So if you had 2 ducks and 2 goats it would be 2 (legs)x 2 and 4 (legs) x 2 which would give you an answer of 4 add 8 which equals 12. Hope this helps but do ask again if you still aren't sure. :-)
  • Miss Whitbourn 6 months ago
    Hi Isabella - I have emailed you the Loom password privately - it is also available in the Remote Learning Guide which I have sent too. Miss Whitbourn
  • Mrs Pearson 6 months ago
    Hello Year 6, I hope you are all well. This is just a quick update on the fourth maths lesson from this week: Alternative Solutions. We have updated the Loom video to include solutions as we have noticed (from the feedback) that some of you are finding it tricky. Please do not worry about completing the whole double page spread, all that we ask is that you give it your best shot and try as many as you can. As Miss Whitbourn said earlier in the week and how I reiterated in the Loom video today, being exposed to questions like this will be extremely beneficial for when you go to secondary school so as long as you are trying your best, that is all that we ask. I hope this helps! From, Mrs Pearson
  • Laura Pater 6 months ago
    thanks for the algebra answers on the loom video, but the one that was not shown was the substraction brick wall. We are totally stuck on that. :-(
  • Mrs Pearson 6 months ago
    Hello! In response to your question about the subtraction brick wall, I will give an example. The question reads: Here are some subtraction algebra ‘brick wall’ problems. The difference between the two numbers in the adjacent bricks is calculated to make the answer in the brick above. Find 3 possible solutions to each. The first piece of information we know is that 3 is going to be the answer. So I would work with the second row down and work systematically, starting with small numbers. The left tile in the middle row could be 4 and the tile on the right could be 1; 4 - 1 = 3. This is the answer we need. In order to get the numbers 4 and 1, we need to think about the bottom row. We have 9 on the right hand side so in order to get 1 (the number above), b = 10 so 10 – 9 = 1. If b = 10 and we know the answer has to be 4 (the number above), a = 14 so 14 – 10 = 4. The question is asking for three solutions but just do your best, that is all that we are asking of you. I hope this helped! Mrs Pearson
  • Isabella Griffith 6 months ago
    thanks miss whitbourn, thats helped a lot.
  • Amelia Smith 5 months ago
    Thank you Mrs Wrighton. I understand it now. 🙂
  • Mave 5 months ago
    Is there an easier method for lesson 5 ,to work out which calculations have the same answer ?
  • Eliza Kay 6L 5 months ago
    why do the brackets sometimes make the answer the same and sometimes different? (a b)-c is the same as a (b-c) when the numbers are 2,3,4 and 3,4,5 give the same answer but 8,9,10 they are different answers? Thanks, Eliza
  • Zachary 6S 5 months ago
    Hi, We are confused by one of the answers to the maths this week. Unit 9, Week 2, lesson 4, challenge 2, part 2, d - we think p=5 and q=5 (not p=5 and q=15) Can you confirm the correct answer please?! Thanks.
  • Miss Pritchard 5 months ago
    Hi Eliza, I hope you are well. Sometimes the placement of the brackets will have an effect on the outcome and sometimes they will not. For example, a (b - c) and (b - c) would both be types of formula which means they show the relationship between the numbers. Sometimes it will be that they have the same answer as an outcome, sometimes it will not, that part depends on the numbers that have been inputted into the formula in place of each different letter. When looking at algebra questions you just have to remember the letters in the formula can represent a huge range of different calculations, some may come out the same with different formula as a coincidence but this will not be true for all solutions. I hope this helps! Miss Pritchard
  • Miss Pritchard 5 months ago
    Hello Y6! I've had some questions come through about the maths this week. So I thought I would put some help on here as well. See below an explanation about yesterdays maths, so Lesson 4, Challenge 3, Part 3. So on Ch3 part 3 the main thing to have in your head to begin with is that there are multiple correct answers. So if the top brick is 432, that means the two bricks directly underneath it have a difference of 432. These could be any numbers, as long as the difference is 432. So perhaps we could choose 532 and 100 because 532-100 = 432, so that would work. Then we have to think about the next row down where we have 3 bricks: 432 532 100 a b 3 So the difference between a and b must be 532 and the difference between b and 3 has to be 100. So if we think about b first, we could say b = 103 because 103 - 3 = 100 which is the brick above. 432 532 100 a 103 3 So then we are left to find a. We have 103 as the central brick and we know the difference between that number and a is 532. We can use the inverse operation to help us. 532 103 = 635, so if a = 635 the difference between 635 – 103 = 532. I hope this is helpful! Miss Pritchard

    Hi Zac, Thank you for your comment, I am so impressed you have managed to work your way through all of the previous questions! Yes good spot, you are absolutely right, p = 5 and q = 5. I hope you have a wonderful Easter break. From, Mrs Pearson
  • Miss Whitbourn 5 months ago
    Hi Mave We have created a Loom to help you with the answers from today's lesson. https://www.loom.com/share/9ed4ecfd55204258b44bf29f04d93e50. I will also add this to the table of work. Miss ,Whitbourn
  • Miss Whitbourn 5 months ago
    Hi Charlie. Chapter 1 is called 'The Meeting'. Please read until you reach 'Little Weirwold' which is Chapter 2. Chapter 1 is eight pages long and finishes on the paragraph 'He picked up some blankets and sheets and carried them into the hall. "I'll be down for you in a minute, Sammy," he said as he climbed up the ladder. "You jes' hang on there a bit," and with that Sammy was left to watch his master slowly disappear through the strange new hole in the ceiling.' Miss Whitbourn

We have spent a long time trying to explain some of the basic principles but they are not landing as clearly the teaching today is slightly different The loom video for lesson 1 was fantastic Manny thanks Lizzie Foxlee
  • Miss Whitbourn 4 months ago
    Good morning all, Well done for having a try at this tricky concept. We have recorded a Loom video to help with Challenge 2 Q1. This is available at: https://www.loom.com/share/7dff9c1c0a774c3b83fb9160339af877 and is also in the work set table. We are looking into a way in which we can share answers with you in the future but for now try your best. We are very proud of you. Miss Whitbourn
  • Emma Herbert 4 months ago
    Message for Miss Whitbourn Hi there. Hope you're ok. Just wondering if Ben could have some help. Week one went swimmingly. He's finding the maths work in Week 2 very tricky and confidence has really dipped. I'm surprised there are nth questions as my others didn't start this until well into Year 7 at Weydon. Ben's really struggling with the algebra problems. Any chance of some help please? We've used the Loom video for Monday's work but he's "thrown his toys out the pram" for Tuesdays' work. I'm slightly dreading Wednesday now?! Siblings have tried to help him but that hasn't worked. Any suggestions gratefully received! Take care and many thanks Emma
  • Miss Whitbourn 4 months ago
    Good morning! Thank you for your message. Not to worry about it. If the children are able to have a go at Challenge 1 or Challenge 2 Question 1 in Tuesday's page (using the Loom video now available and in the message above this) then we will be very happy. It is tricky concept and it is the children's second time being exposed to algebra. As I always say to the children, if they can go on to their secondary school saying that they have tried some algebra before this will hold them in good stead for secondary maths. We will continue to make Loom videos to help support (we are currently making another one for tomorrow). Miss Whitbourn

    Hi Jake, Does this help? Consider how Tom responds to William's reactions towards him. Write a paragraph about how this has developed in the chapter. Miss Whitbourn
  • Miss Whitbourn 4 months ago
    Hi Mave! For Challenge 2 Q3 you will need to look at the symbols. > means greater than, < means smaller than. So for question a) it is asking if 1/2 of 3 litres is greater than 1/4 of 5 litres? 1/2 of 3 litres is 1.5 litres whereas 1/4 of 5 litres is 1.25 litres. This statement therefore would be true as 1.5 litres is greater than 1.25 litres. See if you can have a go at part b) now. Miss Whitbourn
  • Year 6 teachers 3 months ago
    Hello Year 6! Firstly, we just want to say a huge ‘well done’ to every single one of you, you all deserve a well-earned break so it’s time to enjoy the Easter holidays! You have all been working so hard over these last few weeks and we have loved receiving your work and questions. We know the Maths has been particularly challenging this week but from the communication we have received from you, we know that all of you have tried your best and that is all that we ask. You will notice that you will be familiar with the Maths that is set for the week beginning 20th April so we hope you’ll enjoy that. Also, don’t forget that two new features have been added to the Year 6 area on the website: 1. Year 6 Forum: This is where you can ask your teachers questions directly in the forum. We will all endeavour to respond as quickly as possible. 2. Year 6 Work Submission: If you would like to share a piece of your work, perhaps the piece you are most proud of from the week, don’t forget to upload it to the website. We have thoroughly enjoyed seeing the pieces of work you’ve been working on! During the holidays, we would also encourage you to take part in the SFS Challenge. The teachers will all be setting a variety of exciting activities for you all to have a go at! They are all aimed at putting a smile on your face and at keeping you busy during the break. The challenges will be announced via email and on Twitter so you can get involved and share you efforts using #SFSChallenge. Even the teachers will be getting involved so watch this space! We look forward to seeing what you have been getting up to and hearing from you in the new term. From, Mrs Pearson, Miss Whitbourn, Miss Pritchard, Mr Strachan, Mrs Jones, Mrs Wrighton and Mrs Blake

  • Mr Strachan 3 months ago
    Hi there everyone! I hope you are all keeping well and enjoyed your Easter break in these peculiar times! Astrid - I appreciate your diligence with the homework. Mrs Notermans will be uploading the Yr 6 Summer Term homework very soon so please keep checking periodically until it materialises. Mathletics and Spellodrome are working as normal so please do make every effort to get these tasks done besides your regularly assigned school work. Molly and Laura - the maths fairly tricky this week, especially considering it may have been a little while since we've indulged in any maths work at all. For ch3, the first thing I noticed is that it's a O.th (ones, tenths and hundredths: 2 dp) number multiplied by TO (tens and ones: two-digit number). With that in mind, I know that whatever my multiplier is, it can't be too big as I'm only trying to make 75.27 so, for example, I'd be unlikely to multiply in this instance by anything greater than 20, using those 5 digits provided (1, 3, 5, 7 & 9). So, I began by multiplying different arrangements of O.th by 13 and after a couple of trial and error attempts, managed to find that 5.79 multiplied by 13 = 75.27. This task does require a little bit of trial and error and hypothesising what the most appropriate digit arrangements would be. Have a go as I did and see how you get on. Try and complete as many as possible but if this is becoming a bit of a headache, perhaps just practise creating some calculations like this of your own and using your preferred method to solve them. If/when you move on to d, e & f, make sure you use the new 5 digits provided. Hope this helps! Mr Strachan

    I do not understand lesson 3 of maths? Could you give me an idea of how i'm meant to do the table?
  • sarah stradling 3 months ago
    Hi, would it be possible to get any answers so we can mark work- and guidance on how to do this for less obvious work than Maths. I am concerned that we are not able to give the children any feedback and hence the usefulness of doing the work if they do not know if their work is correct? Many thanks Sarah
  • Alexander Stentiford 3 months ago
    I don't understand the maths for lesson 3. Could you put up a LOOM video for it. Even my parents don't understand it.
  • Mrs Pearson 3 months ago
    Hello! Well done for giving challenge 3 a go. Like we have said before, please don't feel like you have to complete every challenge, just do your best. I am just about to do a Loom video for challenge 3 in lesson 2 so look out for that if you are keen to complete that particular challenge. It will be uploaded soon. From, Mrs Pearson
  • Mrs Pearson 3 months ago
    Good morning Year 6, I hope you're all well. I just wanted to say that the maths lesson today starts with a question that is similar to challenge 3 from yesterday so Mrs Blake is going to do a Loom video going through all of the questions from today (Wednesday, lesson 3). If you are struggling, have a go at what you think you might need to do and then have a watch of the Loom video. Please don't worry if you are struggling, as long as you are confident with multiplying fractions (challenge 1 and 2 from yesterday), that is the most important thing! From, Mrs Pearson

  • laura&molly hilson 3 months ago
    good morning, loving the personalised word questions in maths! We just want to check the cereal question as the 9ths and 13ths stumped us somewhat. Is the denominator supposed to be 234? Is is possible to have the answers? (we found the busy ants answers online, but this one is obviously made up by you guys :-))
  • Mrs Blake 3 months ago
    Good morning year 6. I've just posted a Loom video which takes you through similar questions of Questions 1-8 of today's Maths to give you some support and I've also put up the answers for today's lesson. Hopefully, that will be able to help you and only do as many as you feel confident with. Good luck!
  • Alexander Stentiford 3 months ago

    Good morning Year 6. Thank you for all your questions about the Maths. You will now find a Loom video made by Mrs Blake for lesson 3 and also the answer sheet. Many answers cannot be simplified and as some of you have correctly identified, the denominator will be 234. I'm sure you're all doing well and thank you to all the parents supporting the Maths today. Please don't hesitate to ask any further questions. :-) Mrs Wrighton

    Hello, Mrs Pearson here again! Just to reiterate the fact that a Loom video has been uploaded for the answers to lesson 3 so we really hope that helps. There is also one to help with the answers to challenge 3 from yesterday so we are happy to upload the answers as and when they are needed when we have provided work that doesn't follow the Busy Ants scheme. In addition to this, the answers for the Busy Ants lessons which are used mostly can now be found through this link and are also available in the table of work each week. https://resources.collins.co.uk/free/Busy_Ant_Maths/Busy%20Ant%20Maths%20Year%206%20Answers.pdf. We hope this helps. From, Mrs Pearson

    Hello. With the diagram in challenge 2 today (lesson 4), it just means that you need to show the calculation pictorially. So think about what picture you would like to draw (a pizza, a chocolate bar etc) and then think about how many pieces it needs to start with (looking at the denominator) and how many people it is being split between. Mr Kitley - the answers can now be found in the table of work from each week. They are available now. From, Mrs Pearson

  • Mrs Pearson 3 months ago
    Hi Denton, In regards to the lessons on Friday, as you can see next to the table, it does say that they are optional. So there is no pressure to do any work this Friday which you quite rightly said, is the anniversary of VE day! Something I am sure you are very clued up on! With the English, there are questions based on chapter one for 'lesson 1' and 3 spelling sheets under 'lesson 2'. I hope that helps! From, Mrs Pearson

  • Mrs Pearson 3 months ago
    Hello. Holly, with the English this week, you read chapter one. You will see chapter two is called 'Little Weirwold' and it is in bold so stop when you get there. Lily, please don't worry about your comments on the forum appearing straight away. They are all checked before they are published to make sure it is a space safe to discuss. In answer to your question, are you referring to this one? 'What does the expression ‘it’s obligatory and it’s for the war effort’ mean?' If you have a dictionary handy, I would recommend you have a look for the definition of 'obligatory' and that will hopefully help. If you don't, you could always have a discussion with your brother about what the word means, he might be able to help! Just as a hint, this is what Tom said at the very beginning, when he was first introduced to the idea of taking in a child. So think about his character and how he would have felt about that at the time! From, Mrs Pearson
  • Mrs Pearson 3 months ago
    Hello Mrs Hilson-Pater, We haven't provided any answers to the arithmetic but Mr Strachan is always delighted to receive work so please send it in via work submission and he can give you feedback. Hope that helps! From, Mrs Pearson
  • Charlie stradling 3 months ago
    Hi, can you please help with lesson 4, challenge 3 b and d please. Struggling with how to work backwards please. Thanks Charlie
  • Mrs Blake 3 months ago
    Hi Charlie. I've just discussed these questions with Mrs Wrighton and you're going to need to use a little bit of trial and error to find the answer! For Challenge 3 B, you know that the volume is 273mm squared so therefore __ x __ x __ = 273 and all of the numbers are odd numbers. Now you could choose 3 random odd numbers to multiply until you get to 273, or you could think a little bit more logically. Could you divide 273 by an odd number e.g. 3 (273 divided by 3 = 91) and then you can find 2 odd numbers which multiply together to make 91. I'm not expecting you to get the correct answer first time, so you'll need to show your perseverence for this one! With D, remember that consecutive numbers are next to each other e.g. 12, 13, 14 - again you'll need to use trial and error and a little bit of logical thinking. Good luck! Mrs Blake
  • Holly B 3 months ago
    Hello. I have just realised that I have accidentally been doing my planning for English on paper, not in my book. Is that ok??
  • Ellie Davis 3 months ago
    My brother said that tomorrow is a bank holiday and that he doesn't have any maths however, I do is there something wrong with either my timetable or his?
  • Mr Strachan 3 months ago
    Hi Charlie. With b and d, some trial and error is required to achieve success. For the first one, begin by multiplying together two single-digit odd numbers to get a two-digit number to work with. Then, multiply that two-digit number by another odd two-digit number and eventually you'll find a combination that gets you to 273. HINT: the second multiplier is less than 20. For d, you are multiplying 3 single-digit consecutive numbers to make 336. So, work with all the combinations of 3 consecutive numbers between 1 and 9. For example: 1 x 2 x 3 and so on, until you get your answer. Hope this helps! Mr Strachan
  • Mrs Pearson 3 months ago
    Hello girls, Holly - that is absolutely fine to do it on paper instead of your book! Ellie, if you have a look at the timetable for this week, we have provided work for Friday (the bank holiday) but have put 'optional' next to it. Hope that helps! From, Mrs Pearson

Ellie, have a look at the description I have put in the table, it tells you where to stop. It gives you the sentence you need to look out for. Chapter headings are in bold so although it doesn't tell you the exact chapter, I've given you the names. Hope this helps! From, Mrs Pearson

    For challenge2 lesson2, I can’t work out the names for the mathematicians because I don’t know many. And I’m also very bad at anagrams. :( 🧐 Can you help??
  • Mr Strachan 3 months ago
    Hello Holly. For the maths, I too would struggle with naming many famous mathematicians so I resorted to researching some famous examples online. This webpage has the 5 answers you are looking for within the top 30 listed: https://fabpedigree.com/james/mathmen.htm If your BODMAS workings are sound, you should be able to match up the letters available to 5 of the names on this webpage. In two cases, t's just the surname. In two others, the famous mathematician only had one name. In one case, the name we known this mathematician as today is different from what he was known as historically... Hope this helps! Mr Strachan

    Also, please could you make a loom video for geography because I'm kinda stuck....
  • Miss Pritchard 3 months ago
    Hi Holly! For the geography the best way to think about it is to convince a certain type of animal to come and live in the rainforest. It may be a good idea to think of yourself as living there already, then choose an animal that you want to convince to come and live with you. Then you can use the different aspects of the rainforest to convince them why it would be a good idea. For example, you may want to convince a tiger to come and live in the rainforest and consider that it is already camouflaged to live amongst foliage and trees, or perhaps that it is suited to the climate for a number of reasons. I hope this helps! Miss Pritchard

  • orla donaldson 2 months ago
    For my question above, it was 'Curious Questions'
  • Mrs Wrighton 2 months ago
    Hi Orla, The idea of today's maths is to get you thinking about the strategies and most efficient systems you can deploy to answer a question. Consider the reasoning that we've done in school where different people adopt varying approaches. I think it's a great idea to find a family member to discuss it with but it's also fine to work on your own if they are busy. Either way make sure you show your thinking in written and numerical form. Good luck! Mrs Wrighton

  • Naomi Blak 2 months ago
    Hi Michaela. Why don’t you start with Challenge 1 if you are struggling? First of all, for question 1, you need to look at the table and work out how many amphibians there were in total (25+12+8+5=50). Remember, percentages are always out of 100 and 50x2=100. Therefore, you need to multiple each number by 2 to find the percentage e.g. 25 frogs = 50% (25x2). For question 2, you are told there are 60 trees in total and then the percentage of each tree. Use your percentage skills to calculate each one (find 10% first by dividing by 10). If you feel confident after this, then try Challenge 2. For question 1, first find the total (33+55+44+77+66= 275). This time the total is more than 100 so you will need to divide by 2.75 (as 275 divided by 2.75 is 100). You can use a calculator for that bit! I hope that helps! Ellie, look up at Mrs Pearson's comment as she has explained which bit you need to read. Mrs Blake

  • Mr Strachan 2 months ago
    Hello Ben. Have you viewed the loom video for this lesson too? I've gone into detail on that as to what the expectation for the task is. I do also mention that there is a degree of freedom so you are at liberty to choose an area to focus on. Consider focusing on a key time period/band or artist/event and research information using the webpage. For example, one person did their entire piece of work on Live Aid 1985, another on Elvis Presley, and so on. Please feel free to broaden your research scope as the webpage might serve well as a good starting point but not well for the entirety of the task. Hope this helps, Mr Strachan

  • Mrs Wrighton 2 months ago
    Hi Ben, The music task is to research a day in the history of music (see website) of your choosing. When you find something of interest to you on the given website, research into it in more detail. See note on prompt about the different tabs on the website to look at. Your final presentation is in written form (a poster for example)and the prompt lists which aspects to write about. The challenge is to create your own music in the style of or response to your findings should you feel inspired. Have another look at the prompt and listen to the Loom and then if you're still not sure ask us again. Good luck :-) Mrs Wrighton
  • Mrs Blake 2 months ago
    Hi Jake. I can see why you are confused as in the diagram, there are one lot of sweets which look an orangey/brown colour. I would leave that question out as it appears from the answers that section is classed as brown and not orange! Orla, have a look at Mr Strachan's and Mrs Wrighton's comments to help you with the Music. If you'r still stuck, why not choose Mr Carter's favourite band: The Beatles! Mrs Blake

  • Mrs Blake 2 months ago
    Hi Orla, follow the link that Mr Strachan has put on the Music Prompt and put in any date that you like into it. This will then give you lots of information about music that was around on that day. You can then choose one artist from there to do a little research about and make sure you listen to their music so that you can evaluate it (what instruments are there, what are the lyrics about etc.) You can then present this as a factfile although you can certainly include a collage instead of illustrations if you would like. Make sure you find out about at least one artist, but you can do more than one if you would like too. Mave, try and get at least the first two sections out of the three done if you can - follow the Loom video if you need any more help. Hope this helps! Mrs Blake

    I can't remember how to work out the median, could someone help me please?
  • Mrs Blake 1 month ago
    Hi Isabella. Remember the median is the number that is the middle. To work out the median, you first of all need to put the numbers in order from smallest to largest and then see which one is in the middle. So, to find out the median of this set of numbers: 4, 9, 7, 3, 11, 17, 14, you would first put them in order: 3, 4, 7, 9, 11, 14, 17 and then you would see which one is the middle which in this case would be 9 as it is the 4th number out of 7. I hope that helps! Mrs Blake
