Key Skills 24/01/14

This week for key skills:

Numeracy:

We have been looking at word problems over the last week, therefore key skills this week is:

1) Make a guide for someone to follow if they were to tackling a word problem. Do this on a separate piece of paper.
RUCSAC (Read, Understand, Choose, Solve, Answer, Check) is a good example of one of these guides. Create your own that you could use!

2) Using this guide (made by you), you now need to solve this problem:

There’s 4.2 kg of flour in a bowl. 500g of sugar is added to it. 1.82kg of butter is mixed in. When the eggs were added the total mixture weighed 7.5kg. How much did the eggs weigh?

Answer:

How could you check this answer was right?

Literacy:

In Dyson we are currently ensuring everyone is reading regularly! We have the new library up and running in school and have many books in class to read, with a new system of signing in and out. Therefore, this week the key skills is the book review sheet (2 pages) that you received today.

Have a good weekend!

  1. Mr Prosser I will do the maths one here :

    R-Read
    D-Decide
    M-Multiply
    S-Subtract
    A-Add
    A-Answer
    C-Check

    PROBLEM SOLVE:

    500g= 0.5 kg
    4.2kg + 0.5 +1.82= 6.52 kg
    7.5kg – 6.52 kg =0.98
    Eggs = 0.98
