Good morning and happy Friday! Here is your last day of home learning work for this week.
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Maths: Theme Park Maths continued
Continue to spend about 10 minutes working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep them fluent and up to the speeds and accuracy we have worked so hard to achieve.
After that, please continue with your Theme Park Maths work. You should now have finished your design of your theme park – you will need to use that for the tasks in future days, so make sure it is finished before you continue. Today we will be completing Tasks 2, 3 and 4.
Count how many of each of the different category rides/facilities you have in your park. Write the number you have in the column on page 6 titled ‘number in park’. Then, work out the total costs per day of all of the facilities that you have and write that under the final column. For example, if you have two category 1 rides, it will cost you £180 per day to run those. This is because each of those ride costs £90 per day (staff costs and electricity, maintenance and repairs added together) and you need to double that because you have two. For working out the costs per day of the bins and trees, you will need to divide the staff costs to calculate what one day would cost (e.g for Bins you would divide the staff costs by 7 because there are 7 days in one week).
Once you have worked out the daily costs of each item, calculate what it costs for you to open your park for one day in total. Then, multiply this amount to work out what it would cost to open for a week and for one year.
Task 3 uses the figure you have from Task 2 for running your park for one day. Make an estimate of how many visitors you will have in one day at your park – remember that when you first open, not many people will know about your theme park so the number of visitors might be lower than it would be after a while.
Task 3 says to give your plan to a partner, but just do it yourself. Work out by following the criteria what you think you should charge for your entry fee.
Task 4 involves you calculating how much money you make for the first 30 days based on different numbers of visitors. Use the entry fee you decided on in Task 3 to calculate how much money you would make from entry fee with the given number of visitors in the chart.
Follow the link below for today’s reading English lesson which includes extracts from The Parent Agency by David Baddiel. Work through the information and the instructions, reading through the extracts from the book and answering the questions that follow.
Well-being: make a card for a family member or friend you want to thank or send a message to
To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, design and create a card for a family member that you want to give a message. It might be a father’s day card, a thank you card, or just a simple message to say hello to someone you haven’t seen in a while. I’m sure a lovely card from you would really put a smile on someone’s face!
Your additional lesson today is transition. This means making the move from primary school to secondary school. Go through the PowerPoint slides and then answer the questions from Session 1 in the workbook.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, whatever you are doing! I am seeing my family outdoors for the first time in 13 weeks – I have not seen them at all since before lockdown. It is my brother’s birthday tomorrow and I really can’t wait to have a proper chat with my family from a distance. I am hoping to make a cake for him as good as the ones lots of you did for the Year 6 bake off competition…I’ll keep you posted!
