- How much would it cost to buy 1 adult and 1 child' ticket?
- How much would it cost to buy 1 adult and 1 senior ticket?
- How much would it cost to buy 1 concession and 1 senior ticket?
- How much would it cost for 2 adults and 1 child to go?
- How much would it cost if I am 83cm tall?
Now add a price list (like the one above!) to your poster!
Topic - Art
Look at these theme park entrances.

A verb is an action word. An adverb is a word that describes a verb.
Follow the link and answer these questions: What verbs can you use to describe these pictures? What adverbs can you use?

For example: The small, excited children held their arms high in the air as the roller coaster whizzed silently through the sky.
Today we are going to solve some Maths word problems. Follow the link to find the questions. These are VERY tricky so ask an adult for help if you need to and just try your best!
Topic - Music
Listen to these different types of music:
How does each song make you feel?
Today you are going to think of a theme tune for your theme park. Should the music be happy or sad? Should it be fast or slow paced.
You can either create your own theme song for your park or choose a song that you already know. Write in your home learning book why you have chosen it.
