Good morning Year 6, we trust that you are well and looking forward to another day of learning. It has been great to hear how some of you are enjoying the project and being able to apply your maths and English skills to a real-life situation. Keep up the good work – if you have any pieces that you would like to share or any questions that you would like to ask then please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
Daily Maths Task: Prices and charges
Today, you are going to create the price guide for your hotel – how much it will cost people to stay there. Remember that hotels charge different prices for different times of the year, with school holiday times always being the most expensive (unfair, we agree!) Most hotels usually charge different prices for children and adults. Typically, most children start to be charged adult prices at age 13.
It is up to you whether your hotel will be bed and breakfast only included in the price or half board (breakfast and evening meal included in the price) or all inclusive (all meals and drinks included in the price).
Look at this example to give you an idea:
Challenge: What % discount are you going to give children off of the adult prices -10% or 20% or more? Can you now calculate the children’s prices for each date? Will you give a discount for groups? (Such as 6 people travelling together or more).
Once your prices have been finalised, you can use them to answer the email enquiries that are today’s English task.
Daily English Task: Your task today is write email correspondence between people looking to book a holiday at your hotel and the hotel staff answering them.
You will need to decide (for each email) how many adults and children will be visiting; how old the children are (as that may affect your prices); when they will be arriving and how many nights they would like to stay for.
Look at this example for an idea as to how one email correspondence could look. You can create as many as you would like to or make each email chain as long as you would like.
Quick Maths Challenge
Bear Grylls Challenge: The Juggling Challenge
Can you learn to juggle today. You will need 3 balls or bean bags. Watch this video and teach yourself to juggle. Please send us pictures of your successes!
ICT Link to an online activity: The legendary game of Pong (ask your parents/carer). More fun to have with French! this is my favourite!
