We have had busy school days and the Theme Parks are coming along well. Today, it is your turn to see how much profit o make over a month and then how this impacts each month.
We have had some of last year's Year 6s to help with the topic about making friends at secondary school. There are 5 short films for you to watch that discuss some of the questions you might have.
1. Complete posters, ride designs and costings activities from the previous two weeks challenges.
2. Work out your overall profits for the first month using the Task 5 worksheet on slides 2 and 3. If you have use of a computer with Microsoft Excel, you may want to try and use the spreadsheet I have made to help you quickly work this out.
3. Complete Task 6. Using the percentage increases to work out your profits for your first open season of your theme park. Ignore the numbers written in purple - I think they are left from last year and don't make sense!
4. Begin Task 7 – making improvements to your theme park. You can save money on your advertising if you design and make your own, so please send in any billboard/poster designs, radio jingles or TV adverts you might make in your improvements. You can apply a 25% discount to the costs of each advertisement you use if you do this.
Task 1: Write down or think about the qualities you look for in a friend.
Task 2: Watch the 5 short clips about making friends in Year 7.
Task 3: Write down 3 tips you have picked up from the films about making friends in Year 7 - share these with a grown up at home.
The films are only very short!
If you have any more time, finish any reading from your independent reading or Holes.

World Oceans Day follow up
It was great seeing so many posters and hearing some of the speeches from last week’s Ocean’s Day Task. Some of you enjoyed it so much that we continued to look a little at it in school on Thursday. We looked at some of the content on the two links below (we particularly enjoyed the What ocean creature are you? quiz. Most of us came out as dolphins! What are you?).
We then began building a display for World Ocean’s Day so it would be great if we could add to it by:
1) Finishing your posters and/or speeches
2) creating one of these decorations in the link or thinking of your own which we could add to the display… make a moving fish decoration:
Please email or bring anything you have done in.
