## Maths: Zoom input at 11:00am

Today we will be learning how to find a percentage of an amount.

You can find any percentage of you know how to calculate these 3 percentages:

• To find 10% of an amount, you divide by 10.
• To find 1% of an amount, you divide by 100.
• To find 50% of an amount, you halve it.

Here is an example of these 3 percentages in action:

• 10% of 65 = 65 divided by 10 = 6.5
• 100% of 65 = 65 divided by 100 = 0.65
• 50% of 65 = half of 65 = 32.5

## Art (Part 1 of 2)

Over the next two art sessions, we will be creating our own personal still life paintings.

Look at your design plan from last week. Spend a few minutes going over your plan - check with a family member if you can - to check you are happy with the composition.

What techniques have we studied in this unit?

• Colour.
• Texture.
• The arrangement and meaning of objects.

Spend five minutes or so setting up your still life compositions. Make sure you experiment with different ways of setting their objects out until they have found the one that is most visually interesting. You can change your mind if you find a better way to arrange the objects.

Task: Work slowly and carefully to create the best still life composition you can, using the above techniques.

Remember you have two weeks to complete this task.
