Wednesday 13th January Y6 (wk2)

Good morning Year 6. We hope you are enjoying the ‘Hotel Destination You’ project and are keeping up with the Bear Grylls challenges. We are learning lots from the pieces and examples you are sharing with us, so thank you.

Marketing, advertisements and promotions

Today is the day to start to tell the rest of the world about your hotel (and to start to try to attract some customers!)

Daily Maths Task: Advertising budget

You were successful in acquiring the £50,000 loan from the generous bank manager yesterday and you now have this money to use for your advertising budget.  Your task is to produce a marketing budget sheet for three months to show how much you think you are going to spend and how much you actually spend.

Look at the example below to help you to decide which marketing media to use and how to organise your budget sheet. This task could be completed on Excel if you so wish. Challenge: Can you use a formula to add up the totals in each column?

Challenge: Once you have designed and created your advertising budget, can you generate some questions about it?

For example:

1./  How much you do have left from your £50,000 budget?

2./ How much more is March’s spend than January’s?

3./ What % decrease is January’s social media actual spend compared to the budgeted amount? Etc.

Daily English Task: To design a persuasive poster to be used in newspapers and magazines to encourage people to visit your hotel.

Remember that this is an English task, so you will need to include elements of good persuasive writing. We have attached a success criteria to help you and some examples of the sorts of sentences you might wish to include.

Quick Maths Challenge

Bear Grylls Challenge: Target Practice Challenge

Set up some targets (empty water bottles or paper towel rolls work great) and try and knock them down with Nerf guns or throwing soft objects (check with your parents/carer first). Make sure you have a start line and it is safe for others in the house.

ICT Link to an online activity: 4 in a row. Learn some French with this fun game – you can choose your topics.

Remember that if you would like further tasks to complete, please go to the Oak Academy website at (which is provided by the DfE).

Message of the day:

“A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on
a detour.”
