Creative Curriculum Key Skills
Over the last week and a half we have heard lots about Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer). If you have forgotten what this is, here is a quick reminder:
Christ the Redeemer is a statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and was considered the largest Art Deco statue in the world from 1931 until 2010 when it was topped by the Christ the King statue in Poland
For your key skills this week you have a choice on what to do! Below are the two activities you could do:
1) Write a short story describing yourself walking up towards the statue. How are you feeling? What can you hear? What can you see?
2) Write a persuasive advert persuading people to visit the statue. Why would they go there? What could they see? Who would like to go there? How do you think you would feel if you stood next to it? Think about the target audience. You should have loads of persuasive phrases and techniques to include!

Numeracy, Division & Multiplication Key Skills
We have been heavily looking at division and multiplication recently and ensuring that methods are secure. Therefore:
For key skills this week you are to set 5 questions on division and 5 questions on multiplication for somebody at home. If you could get this person to pretend to not understand multiplication or division that would be great! Your task is then to explain to that person precisely how they are to complete them.
Don’t set questions like 8×7… This is no challenge! Set questions which you understand and are comfortable with. For example, you could do 32 x 12 (tu x tu), or you could go for harder questions like 2.781 x 9.12, if you understand them.
How you record your evidence is entirely up to you, a simple question & answer page in your key skills book or blank paper would be great.
If you aren’t 100% with chunking or any methods we have looked at, have a practise and revise how to do it so you are happier with it.
Have a good (long) weekend!
