Maths starter activity:
As before, write down your score in the back of your maths book. Can you beat your best score? Hopefully, by now you are ready to focus on the x3 and x4 tables. Perhaps, you could even try the x8 (which is just double x4).
Watch this video to help with today’s lesson:
- Start with the Ones in each question
- Line up the numbers in columns carefully – one number per square
- Don’t forget to count any numbers you put under the answer line
- Check answers
Even though these seem to be all addition questions, sometimes, you’ll have to subtract too. Think carefully and check your answer makes sense.
Clue for Q8b) The pyramid only has a number at the top. So, you need to start right under that number. You can pick and two numbers that add up to 768… there are lots of right answers!
Make some digit cards for the numbers 1 to 8 (could be numbers on 8 post-it notes). How many different pairs of 3-digit numbers can you make that total 999? You can only use the 1 to 8 once in each pair.
Here are two starters for you:
- 123 + 876 = 999
- 124 + 875 = 999
If you would like a slightly easier extension, try using the digit cards 1 to 8 to make 2-digit numbers that add up to 99
Here is a starter for you:
1. 46 + 53 = 99
GOAL: Shopping for Food in France
In our country, many people buy most of their food from a supermarket (sometimes online) once a week or so. In France, it is common for families to buy fresh food every day from a market or street of food shops. Supermarkets do exist in France but many people prefer to buy fresh food every day. This is often bought in a food market or in a specialist shop:
- une épicerie (small grocery)
- le marché (farmers' market)
- le supermarché (supermarket)
- la boucherie (butcher shop)
- la boulangerie (bakery)
- la charcuterie (pork butcher's shop and delicatessen)
- la confiserie (sweet shop)
- la crémerie (dairy shop)
- la fromagerie (cheese shop)
- le magasin de fruits et légumes (greengrocery)
- le marchand de vins (wine shop)
- la pâtisserie (pastry shop)
- la poissonnerie (fish shop)
I’d like you to make a poster advertising this market.
Imagine a town square in France that is going to have a market the next Saturday.
You can call the location: “Place de la Quinton”.
Use a page or two in your book, or a large piece of paper. Make the market sound great, then visitors will want to come. Can you think of a persuasive phrase to add eg “Marvellous market makes a mark” or “Fabulous food for your family”
What you could include:
- Where the market will be
- Times the market will be open
- What will be sold
- What shops will be present
- Bargains to be had
- Lots of pictures – you could even draw the market over the whole page and write names of shops / food on the picture
- Any special events eg café or music?
Here is a video of a market day in Cannes to help you think of ideas. See if you can spot the oysters and olives:
