Last week we set key skills that was researching our chosen person (celebrity, friend or member of family for example).
Some people completed it extremely quickly with not a lot of information. This weekend, you need to look at adding extra information that will aid your writing of the biographies next week.
We came up with some questions to guide our research:
What was their inspiration for taking up their job, if there was one?
Did they always want to do their job?
Who inspired them before they became famous?
What is/was their family like?
How old were they when they had their first job?
Are they a nice person?
Do they have a nickname?
What was his/her childhood like?
Where was he/she born?
These questions don’t all need to be answered – they are more just to focus your research if you are stuck with specific things to look for.
We have been looking at rounding a lot over the last two days in maths. Therefore, you each had a sheet that combined both rounding numbers and also some written addition calculations.
By rounding each price to the nearest pound (£) work estimate the cost of:
1) 1 DVD and 1 Single CD2) 2 Posters and 1 T-shirt
3) 3 Double CDs and an MP3 player.
4) 1 Single CD and 2 Double CDs
5) 1 Poster, 1 MP3 Player and 1 T-shirt
6) 3 DVDs
7) 5 T-shirts and an MP3 Player
8) 1 Poster, 1 MP3 Player and 2 T-shirts
9) 2 MP3 players
10) 1 Double CD, 1 Single CD and 2 DVDs.
Using written methods, calculate the actual answers to all of part 1.
Colin has a £20 note; list all the possible combinations of things that he could buy. E.g 1 DVD and 1 Poster
