Week beginning 20th April
Hello Year 5 superstars.
Hope you are all well and staying safe. I am missing you all lots.
J Well done for all the awesome work you have done so far.
I thought this week we might do a cross-curricular learning project based on a short film called ‘The Catch’. You can find a link to it here - https://www.literacyshed.com/the-other-cultures-shed.html
Choose one or two of these activities to do each day… or come up with your own (be as creative/exciting as you like!). Please upload any work that you do onto our class shared folder on the school website.

The boy goes fishing every day for a week. On the first morning he catches three fish.
On the second morning his catch increases by 10% to 30 fish. The number of fish he catches increases by 10% each day until he has caught 30,000 fish. How many days has he been fishing?
The boy has a basket full of 24 fish. He sells each fish for 50p. How much money does he make?
He decides to offer a deal- anybody who purchases two fish gets a third one half price. He sells all 24 fish using the deal. How much money does he make?
