Rhino Daily Challenge – Maths

Zios and Zepts

Deep in a rainforest, two new creatures have been discovered. They are called Zios ,which have 3 legs and Zepts, which have 7 legs.

The great explorer Nico, who first discovered them back in 2012, saw a crowd of the  creatures gathering on the forest floor. He managed to sneak up on them and see that there were both Zios and Zepts in crowd. However, as soon as they all saw him, they all rolled over onto their backs and put their legs in the air.

He could count 52 legs but had no idea how many creatures he was looking at.

How many Zios and how many Zepts do you think there were in the crowd?
Do you think there is more than one possible answer?

Rhino Daily Challenge – Writing

Morning,

Today I would like to imagine you are an explorer and you have discovered a new species in a rainforest.

Decide what rainforest you are exploring and then think more about the creature you have discovered. You could actually design a new creature of your own. Below is a design sheet that you could use to help you, there are 3 different versions to choose from.

Design your own animal sheet

Once, you have designed your creature, you can then produce an information text all about it.

Try and use the following features:

Title – name of your page

Sub title – introduction to your page

Sub headings – mini title for each section

Paragraphs – groups of sentences about the same information

Labels or captions – give extra details to pictures or diagrams

As well as general information about your creature, try and include sections on habitat and diet and also try and include an interesting fact!

You can can create these on paper or even use a computer programme such as powerpoint or publisher.

I would love to see your work, so send it in via dojo.

Rhino Daily Challenge – Maths

Morning,

Today’s challenge is all about number.

Try solving these number riddles below. Can you follow the clues to identify the number?

Can you solve at least 3 riddles? Can you solve them all? Can you create a number riddle of your own?

 

 

Rhino Daily Challenge – Writing

Acrostic Poetry

An acrostic poem can be fun to create but also quite thought provoking.

To create an acrostic, follow these four easy steps:
  1. Decide what to write about
  2. Write your chosen word vertically down your page
  3. Write a word or a sentence that starts with one of the vertical letters
  4. Repeat for the rest of the vertical letters until your poem is complete

For today’s challenge, I would like you to have a go at writing an acrostic poem for a sport or sports person of your choice. Try and write sentences for each letter rather just choosing one word. Be creative!

Here is an example for one of my favourite sports:

Basketball
B ounce the ball with your head up
A ccuracy is key to scoring a basket
S hoot if you’re open
K eep your mind on the game
E njoy it while you can
T ake it to the basket
B end knees to shoot with power
A lways use the backboard
L ay up shots should never be missed
L earn to play as a team
Don’t forget to send in your work on dojo. I have lots of merits to give out!!!
