This week for key skills:
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?
How could you check this answer was right?
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!
