Maths

Your math task today will focus on related calculations. You need to think about the different tables you are using and how they link today. For example if 2 x 5 = 10 then 2 x 50 must = 100. Watch the video and complete the worksheet shown below.

ICT

This week, to link in with Design Technology and our Erasmus project, I would like you to research a local landmark, The Tyne bridge, using search tools and an appropriate website.

Today you have two tasks, the first is to read through the ‘What is the internet’ part of the presentation. Next use the key words ‘Tyne bridge’ to trial 3 different search engines (choose from list below). When you are searching, I would like you to think about the following questions:

  • What are the first 3 results? Compare across the different search engines used.
  • What is the same/different between the given search engines?
  • Do the search engines give the information you were looking for?
  • Is it easy to read and understand?

For the second part of your task, I would like you to research facts about the Tyne bridge using a search engine of your choice. Possibly use the one that you found the easiest to use or the one that produced the most useful information regarding ‘Tyne bridge’. Complete the research template provided.
