Friday 24th April 2020 - Cooking challenge
Today we would like you to get cooking! If you have the ingredients, why not bake something? See if you can follow a recipe. Work together to read the scale on your measuring scales. For a challenge, work out how much of each ingredient you would need if you halved the recipe. How much would you need if you doubled it? Year 6, can you talk about the ratio of ingredients?
Make sure you ask an adult to help you with this one.
We can't wait to see your delicious creations at firstname.lastname@example.org !
Thursday 23rd April 2020 - Map challenge
Today we would like you to combine your Maths and Geography skills to make a map. The map could be of your home, your garden, or your local area from a walk that you have remembered. For a Maths challenge, can you find the area or perimeter of anywhere on your map? For more instructions, look at: https://schoolgardening.rhs.org.uk/resources/activity/draw-a-map-of-your-garden .
It is going to be a sunny day so if you can get in the garden, why not make a 3D map using items you find outside? For example, using sticks to show your fences! We can't wait to see your maps at email@example.com !
