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).

GOAL: To Write a Persuasive Leaflet about Paris
One of the ways that tourist attractions encourage people to come and visit is by producing leaflets. Your next task is to make a leaflet about Paris. There’s quite a lot involved in creating a travel leaflet, so I think this is a task for Thursday and Friday.
You may ask: ”What is a leaflet?” Well, here are some examples:
The first thing you’ll see is that they been made on paper which has been folded into a little book. It can have 2 or 3 folds. Next, you’ll notice is that they are packed with pictures and are colourful.
A leaflet needs to be packed with reasons why someone should visit. It should try to persuade people that Paris the place to go. Here are two examples that include Persuasive Writing:
Checklist of what to include:
- Front page that says “Paris” in large letters
- Catchy phrase under the title, such as: “Perfect for all the family…”
- Facts in paragraphs that make Paris sound amazing (use your work from earlier in the week)
- Information about several things to see and do in Paris (with subheadings)
- Pictures and drawings
- Questions that talk to the reader, such as: "Would you like to climb the Eiffel Tower? Well, you can..."
- Use the word "you" sometimes. This makes the reader feel involved.
- Lots of adjectives and adverbs to make everything sound wonderful
- Possibly a bullet point list (could be foods to try)
- Possibly a map
- Possibly contact details for the “Tourist Information Office” in Paris (make it up!)
