Good morning Year 5/6.
Did you know that March 31st 1889 was the grand opening of the Eiffel Tower in Paris? Named after engineer Gustave Eiffel whose company constructed the tower, it was a huge controversy in the art world, dividing opinions over its design but it has since become one of the most visited monuments in the world.
Daily English Task: Tense Tuesday
Solution to yesterday's starter - did you solve it?
Each day he climbs 1m (3m up, then 2m down).
So it takes him 30 days to climb out.
Sophia's dad sent in an even better answer with great reasoning:
"In the puzzle where the frog climbs out of the hole it doesn’t take 30 days for it to get out it takes 28!
The frog climbs 1m per day because it falls back until the 28th day when it climbs 3m but reaches the top of the whole and wanders away.
It would be a very silly frog to then climb back down 2m. I’m presuming that on day 27 it is a hairs width away from the top but just can’t reach since it’s a mathematical frog and abides by the rules and obligingly slips down."
Do you agree with him?
