Tuesday 31st March

Good afternoon, I hope you've all had a good day. I'm about to make some Easter cards for my family since I won't be able to visit them. Perhaps you could start to make some for your relatives too - we could all post pictures of what we've created on our class page.

Earlier, I set up a music account for all of you which is ready to go live after the Easter break. The topic is 'Plastic' and the song is really catchy. I can't wait for us to start working on it. 

 

Answers to today's learning are below:

 

Well done to those of you who have completed your Mymaths. If you didn’t get 100% remember you can always watch the lesson and have another go.

Alexander's son, Nicolas II, began to commission the eggs after the Tsar's death. The difference is that he had 2 made - one for his mum and one for his wife.

The Faberge family left Russia because of the Russian Revolution. They swept away the ruling family and took over Faberge's workshops. Faberge was broken-hearted and fled the country.

Stalin wanted to turn the treasured eggs, along with lots of other royal jewels, into money for new farming equipment. So the eggs were sold to create money for the tractors.

 

Did you see these! Choccywoccydodah eggs. I wouldn't pay all that money though. My Easter eggs get scoffed in seconds.

Good morning,

I hope you are ready for another super day of learning.

Last night I made a pear crumble - it was delicious. The crumble recipe needed ingredients in the following quantities:

However, I wanted my crumble to be extra crumbly so I multiplied the ingredients by 1.5 (1 and a half). E.g. instead of 20g I used 20g plus an extra half - which is 10g (because half of 20 is 10). So I'd have used 30g altogether. I wonder if you can work out the amounts I weighed out. 

p.s. baking is a great way to practise maths - perhaps you could persuade your parents that you REEEALLLY need to make some cupcakes :) 

 

I've added a picture of Amy to oour photos page - you look like you've been working really hard. Go and check it out!

Yum!
