Alternative Maths provision to replace the usual format.
Can you solve this puzzle? Using eight 8s, can you get a total of 1000 with addition only?
If you were unable to do yesterday's English because of the technical difficulties, please do that today and NOT this lesson, That way, we know that Kensuke's Kingdom is complete. This lesson is for those who were able to complete it.
Alternative Maths if you want a different kind of Maths challenge. Oops. Forgot to load this yesterday. There are two, Sweets in a Box or the more challenging Maths Magic. The latter is a series of challenges so will take you over a week easily.
I am having a nightmare loading today's work. I am trying again. Those of you who are able to do it today. Great. If not, I will repeat tomorrow and have another task for those who have managed to access the work! Some of the slides aren't showing properly but your transition booklet will have them all.
Here is your new challenge. This is an alternative Maths investigation that will run for a week and which can be completed instead of the normal format Maths on one day or succession of days.
Final day of this current Maths investigation. New one tomorrow.
It's the penultimate chapter of our novel, Kensuke's Kingdom, today. The lesson is heavily SPaG based with some comprehension and reflection added to. There is also an analysis task - we have been doing a few of these as they will help you develop a key skill for Year 7 English. In these tasks, you have to reason different options; today, should Kensuke leave the island if rescue comes?
I am also going to add a link to Kiera's play. National Theatre Live is showing Small Island on YouTube for free. Kiera plays young Hortense. The play deals with issues that are in news a lot at the moment including the resettlement of Jamaicans to England on the Empire Windrush in 1948. As you are transitioning from primary to secondary, this could be a good play to watch with your parents. It will require some maturity on your part because some of the themes and language is quite grown up but you and your parents may feel you are grown up enough to watch it. It is a decision for you to make with your parents.It is only available to watch until 25th June.
A couple more opportunities to have a go at this alternative Maths investigation.
Today we look at Chapter 8 of Kensuke's Kingdom and find out, at last, Kensuke's story - how he came to be on the island and why. Today's tasks all focus on that timeline of events. There is a teaching powerpoint as usual, a chapter to listen to and your transition booklet, week 4 - set out differently today.
