Our Learning Today
Lo: to plan an alternative narrative
Today we are going to plan our final section of your alternative story. This will be about your character's future choices. You will need to think about these questions:
Lo: to recognise cube numbers
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
78,473,947 + 56,373,821
107,837,682 - 63,762,991
1237 x 536
6313 ÷ 35
Today we are going to look at the other half our topic this week. Cube numbers. So what are cube numbers?
A cube number is a number that has been multiplied by itself 3 times. The symbol we use to show cubed is this little ³. When we see this symbol we say 'cubed'.
Let's take a look at an example:
What is 2³?
To find the answer, we need to multiply the number 2 three times.
2 x 2 x 2 = ?
I know that 2 x 2 = 4
Now I have to multiply the answer by 2.
4 x 2 = 8
So 2 x 2 x 2 = 8
Which means that 2³ = 8
Let's try one more:
What is 3³?
To find the answer, we need to multiply the number 3 three times.
3 x 3 x 3 = ?
I know that 3 x 3 = 9
Now I have to multiply the answer by 3.
9 x 3 = 27
So 3 x 3 x 3 = 27
This means that 3³ = 27
Now it's your turn. Draw out this table and fill in the missing spaces.
Here are your challenges for today.
Lo: to tell a story with ICT
I would like you to follow this link to scratch and create a story. You could try to create something to do with Baboon on the Moon or make something up of your own.
Check out the Spanish blog for the last lesson of the year.
Have a great day. Theo :)
