On Monday and Tuesday, we have learnt a lot about Inverted Commas. Your task today is to write about the first conversation you will have with your best friends, when we are back at school.

 

Example: I excitedly ran up the large hill, towards the school gates. Mrs Shaw was waiting at the top, with a huge smile on her face.

“Good Morning Michael, it’s great to see you!” beamed Mrs Shaw  

I walked sensibly into school seeing all the teachers I really missed, especially Mr Burrows. He greeted me at the door to the classroom with a huge smile as I walked in! I then saw John and I walked quickly over to him.

“Hi John, how are you? I’m so glad to be back, I missed you.” I spoke.

“Michael, I’m really good thank you, so happy to be back. I’m really looking forward to playing football at break time. Did you do any of the teacher challenges?” John asked.

Maths - Figure it out Friday!

 

Palindromes

Follow the instructions below to have some fun with numbers!

 

Think of as three-digit number. Reverse the digits to generate a second number. Subtract the smaller from the larger. Reverse the digits again. Add the two new numbers.

 

e.g.                   341

                      -  143              Remember to reverse the digits

 

                       = 198

         +  891            Remember to reverse the digits

 

         =1089

 

Do you always get 1089? If so, why?

 

 CHALLENGE -Try with 2, 4, 5 digit palindromes.

Non Core Subject lesson - Science - Building bridges

 

There are so many different ways to build a bridge. Let’s take a few minutes and look at three types of bridge design and how well each type of paper bridge holds pennies.

( You don't need to use coins , you can find other things you might have around the house such as lego ,pasta etc) 

 

 

1) The first bridge you might create is a single strip bridge. It is made of a singe piece of paper placed on top of two cups. You will want just a centimetres between the cups.

Once the strip is in place, starting adding one penny at a time. This bridge only held one penny. When a second penny was added to the bridge it totally collapsed. This type of bridge just wasn’t very stable.

 

2) Make an oval by taping to paper strips together at their ends. The ends were slightly pinched to give the oval a little more stability.

This bridge bowed in the centre the same way that the single strip bridge did.  It was able to hold a few more pennies. The pennies needed to be placed down the centre of the bridge. When they were spread out the bridge, the bridge fell into the space between the cups.

 

3) Create a folded bridge by folding a strip of paper  horizontally as you would fold a fan. The folds that were created were very narrow.

 

Attempts were made to lay the pennies on top of the folds, but they kept slipping into the folds on the folded bridge. This style of bridge was able to hold all the pennies gathered for this activity. It would have probably held a lot more. The bridge didn’t even have a slight bow in it.

After all the bridges had been created, we talked about why one bridge design worked and others didn’t. We have our thoughts about why some were successful and others were not.

Why do you think some worked and others didn’t?

 

CHALLENGE _ Can you design and make your own bridge? Remember to send photos into the email address so that your teachers can see your creations!
