Can I solve problems involving scaling quantities?
In the last week we have been looking at scaling different quantities . For homework, you would like you to do the following in your book. Please make sure you work neatly and use a ruler when drawing your table. I have included the recipe incase you would like to make some.
Scale the quantities in the recipe up or down to make new amounts of biscuits.
This makes about 8 Chumbly biscuits.
120g plain flour
60g caster sugar
20ml vanilla essence
100g icing sugar
Rub the butter and flour in a bowl together until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
Add the semolina, vanilla essence and caster sugar, squashing everything together so it looks like a dough
Roll out the dough onto the work surface and cut out different shapes using cookie cutters
Cook at 150 °C until golden brown. Leave to cool. Mix the icing sugar with water and decorate.
Show the quantities needed to make 2, 12, 18, and 30 biscuits.
Create a table in your book to show the information and new quantities.
Next week you will be sitting your SATs tests. For this reason, we are not setting you any specific homework. It is up to you and your parents to decide what revision you do this weekend. It is important that you focus and work on any areas you find challenging so that you feel confident when you open the test paper next week and can show off how much you have learnt. The test timetable for next week is:
Monday – Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
Tuesday – Reading Comprehension
Wednesday – Maths Paper 1 (Arithmetic) and Paper 2 (Reasoning)
Thursday – Maths Paper 3 Reasoning
Friday – No tests! (Unless you need to catch-up)
It is very important that you have a good sleep this coming week, we are inviting you all to enjoy a pre-SATs breakfast this week – please come to school as close to 8:30am as you can!
SATs do not test everything. They do not test how lovely you all are and they do not test your many talents that you have, whether it be dance, drama, singing or sport. We think you have all made fantastic progress this year and have shown what a hard-working group of children you are. Next week, all you need to do is try your absolute best and persevere with anything that comes your way. Most importantly, remember to believe in yourself – you can do this and you are brilliant!
