Enrichment at Home
Here are your Enrichment at Home activities for the week starting Monday 1 June. We would love to see how you have done with these challenges.
Don't forget our new student book club too.
Art - Life in Lockdown
Make a composition (arrangement) depicting ‘Life in Lockdown’. Upload entries onto SMHW. The Artwork should be about your experience of the lockdown. This could be a photograph, drawing, painting or a series of different images. Starting point themes: still life, image from home, local area, daily exercise, a portrait! You have to include the following:
- NHS Rainbow
- ‘Closed’ shop sign
- An activity you’ve been doing at home
History - Black Britons competition
Click on this link to the Black Britons competition. Follow the instructions and see if you can create a piece for the competition. You do not have to submit it if you don’t want to.
Geography - CIA photo challenge
Test your skills of perception with two CIA aerial photo analysis challenges. Some people see a photograph as an image that captures a moment in time. To others, it can be carefully read to see what has happened in the past and what might occur in the future. This is an important skill to practise in Geography as you will experience photo analysis questions in all three GCSE exam papers and many geographers go on to work in industries which require analysis skills like this such as planners, cartographers, and surveyors. Put your perceptual skills to the test. Take the challenge now!
Maths - This week's riddles
But first, the answers from last week.
Question: What is 40 divided by ½ plus 15?. Answer: 95. Dividing by half is the same as multiplying by 2.
Question: The beach resort held a contest to guess the number of beach balls in the net bag pictured here. Pearl guessed 20, Alex guessed 21, James guessed 22, Richard guessed 17 and Adam guessed 16. One was off by 4, one was off by 3, one by 1, one by 2 and one was correct. How many beach balls were there? Answer: 20
Question: I am a three-digit number. My tens digit is five more than my units digit. My hundreds digit is eight less than my tens digit. What number am I? Answer: 194
Question: A teacher of mathematics used an unconventional method to measure a 15-minute time limit for a test. He used just 7-minute and 11-minute hourglasses. Explain how the teacher measured 15 minutes using the hourglasses. Answer: When the test began, the teacher turned both the 7-minute and 11-minute hourglasses. After the 7-minute one spilt its last grain, he turned it upside down (the 11-minute one is still to spill sand for another 4 minutes). When the 11-minute hourglass was spilt, he turned the 7-minute one upside down for the last time.
