Today in our Maths lesson we tried to tackle a problem using all the problem solving skills we have been using recently. We made great use of resources and pictures to represent our maths and help us reason why our answer was correct. We didn't quite solve the problem today but thought our grown-ups would like to have a go too. Let us know how you get on!
There are four jugs.
The largest holds exactly 9 litres of drink, and is filled to the top.
The 7 litre, 4 litre and 2 litre jugs are empty.
Find a way to pour the drink from one jug to another until you are left with exactly 3 litres in three of the jugs.
In the words of a certain TV advert meerkat, using Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett is ‘simples!’ especially if you use the Talk-for-Writing process. As a core story for a half term, it is perfect for us – with plenty of captivating illustrations to focus on, quirky characters and lots of humour. We will be focussing on using adverbs to express cause, punctuating direct speech as well as improving fluency. It’s also a fabulous way to develop geography, PSHE, art and history through our theme of Extreme weather.
Sunny lives on an arid plain with his extensive and loving meerkat family; they work together, play together and together do their best to stay away from jackals!
But Sunny is starting to feel claustrophobic and decides to set off to stay with his mongoose cousins and explore the outside world.
To inspire our adventure stories we went on adventure too!
