Year 6 – Battleship fun

To consolidate our Maths learning this week, Year 6  have had great fun playing battleships with a partner of their choice. They showed great maturity in their choices of their partner and thought about themselves as a learner rather than working with their friends. Year 6, how did you decide who you wanted to learn with this morning?

Music: ‘Ode to Joy’, Beethoven

Mr Fisher shared this video with us today, then years 5 and 6 began learning how to play it on their instruments. We’re not quite up to the standard of the musicians in the video yet, but you have to start somewhere…

Which instruments can you see/hear?

Can you work out the BPM?

Mr Fisher also asked if you could make a graph of this piece of music? What could he mean? Is anyone willing to have a ‘can do’ attitude and give it a go?

Montezumas

Hotel Chocolat

We’ll also be looking at prices and weight of chocolate. Could we use this information to compare products? What other information do you think would be useful?

Y5 Maths Week: Chocolate pricing & costing activity.

Year 5 HomepageYear 5. We’ve researched the competition and taken inspiration from the established chocolate brands.

Now we need to begin the process of working out how much our project will cost in order to pitch it to the PTA. We’ll need to think about the cost of the moulds, packaging, chocolate and anything we need to add to the chocolate (edible glitter etc).

Important points to note:

  • We don’t yet know how much chocolate we need (we’ll work that out tomorrow) – focus on ‘best price’ can you work out a price per gram of chocolate – compare different shops.
  • We are looking for the best (cheapest) price.

Websites:

Tesco

Asda

Waitrose

Amazon (use for researching silicone moulds)

Tiny Box Co (use for researching gift boxes)
