WALT: solve a number problem.

You are at a VE Day party and you are sitting around a square table with seven friends.Your friend who is throwing the party is sitting at the top left-hand corner. She has a bag of sweets that she starts giving out in a clockwise direction: one for herself, two for the next person and three for the next and so on.


There are bigger square tables at the party with more children sitting round on each side.

Explore and compare tables with 3 children sitting on each side, 4 children sitting on each side and 5 children sitting on each side.

Investigate the following for all the tables:

The total number of sweets that children sitting opposite each other have.
The total number of sweets needed for each size of the table.

Remember to use pictures to help solve this problem.

WALT: Compose an Acrostic Poem.

Acrostics are a fun poetic form that anyone can write. In an acrostic poem, the first letter of each line spells a word. The word is the subject of the poem. Usually, the first letter of each line is capitalized. This makes it easier to see the word spelled out vertically down the page.
See the example below.

Very glad the war
In Europe is over
Come out and we will celebrate
That our soldiers will come home
Our men and women
Return to us
Years after they left

Choose a word or phrase to create your own acrostic poem to mark VE Day.

Don’t forget to decorate your poems.
