WALT: Introduction to percentages
Watch the three videos about percentages and complete each small activity set on the website: What is a percentage?; How to calculate a percentage and Maths of the day.
Percentage means the number of parts per hundred- 'per cent'.
The percentage symbol is %
Now have a go at the questions in the PDf document before completing the three challenges below:
J K Rowling, David Walliams, Roald Dahl and many more authors used powerful vocabulary within all of their writing. They also, however, created new 'nonsense' words. For example, all of the spell names in Harry Potter. Nevertheless, these 'nonsense' words are linked so that the reader understands the meaning of the word.
Today, we would like you to have a go at creating your own nonsense words to describe a monster of your own. Write your own meanings for each nonsense word you create.
Handy Hint: you can combine two real words together.
For example: Scough = scaly + rough. This refers to the skin of the monster.
Not sure how to start? Write a long list of adjectives to describe your monster. Include all 5 senses; what you can see, hear, smell, touch and taste.
