Year 5

Hi Year 5,

This half term we are looking at our local area, I have asked you some mathematical questions based around knowledge of our local area.

Bronze: How far away from Coventry is Stratford Upon Avon? If I went on a day trip to Stratford how many miles will I travel that day? Explain how you know.

Silver: How tall are the three spires of Coventry if they were added together (Holy Trinity. Christ Church and St Michaels). Would the spires combined be taller or smaller than the Empire State Building? Explain.

Gold: What percentage of Premiership teams are from the West Midlands? Investigate.

Platinum: 1242 people died during the Coventry air raid out of a population of 200,000. What percentage is this? Explain

I am looking forward to reading your responses.

    I got my answer from Google
    I typed:what is the distance from Coventry to Stratford-Upon-Avon? It is 20miles(26min) by a car.you follow A4053, London Road/A4114 and A444 to A46 in Warwickshire. Then follow Art to Warwickshire Road/A439 continue on Warwick Road/A439. Drive to Ely in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

    Silver
    Holy Trinity is 59metres (194ft)
    Christ Church is 37metres (120ft)
    St Michael’s is 89.916metres (295ft)

    The spires combined will be smaller than the Empire State Building be cause the spires has a total of 59m+37m+89.916m=175.916m and the Empire State Building on its own is 443m (1,454ft).

  3. Bronze:
    It takes 27 minutes and 19.5 miles
    I know this because i did research

    Silver:
    The total height of the 3 spires aproxametley is 468 feet is smaller than the empire state building which is 1250 and the difference is 782 feet

    Gold:There are only two teams in the West Midlands that are in the the Premier League these teams are Aston Villa,whose stadium is Villa park and is in the city Birmingham.Also,West Bromwich Albion,whose home ground is Hawthorns and the city they are in is Sandwell are also are team in the Premier League division.

    From Coventry (where we live) to Stratford Upon Avon (which is in Warwickshire) it will take 26 minutes (20.0 mi) to get there by car (which works). (via A46)
    From Coventry (where we live) to Stratford Upon Avon (which is in Warwickshire) it will take 6 h 17 minutes (19.1 mi) to get there by walking (make sure you dont have a broken leg). (via B4115)
    From Coventry (where we live) to Stratford Upon Avon (which is in Warwickshire) it will take 2 h (22.7 mi) to get there by Bicycle (which works). (via National Cycle Rte 41)

  5. Bronze
    Coventry is 20 miles away from Stratford so it should be 40 miles away from Coventry from statford because 20 times by 2 is 40 so the answer is 40.
    Silver
    St Michaels is 295 feet , Christ church is 210 feet and holy trint is 236 feet so the answer is 734 feet.

  6. Bronze
    It takes 28 minutes to go from Coventry to Stratford -upon-Avon in a car depending on traffic.On a bike it take 2 hours and 22.7 miles if you head north on Ringway Rudge to Stratford -upon-Avon as it takes 1 hour 32 minutes which is more than a car.If you walk it would take 6 hours and 17 minutes if you start on via B4115 to come from Coventry to Stratford upon Avon.

    Silver
    The total length of three spires ( holy trinity,Christ church and st Michael ) it takes 850 ft as the Empire State Building in America is 1250 ft which means that the Empire State Building is taller than three spires of Coventry. I got the answer 850 ft because the holy trinity is 428 ft and the length of Christ church is 124 ft and st Michael is 295 ft so you add them together and you get 850 ft. Then you subtract 1250 ft by 850 ft and you get 400 ft.

    Gold
    In West Midlands there are 2 teams in the premier league and one of them is Aston villa as there home stadium is called (villa park) in Birmingham and the other West Bromwich Albion which home stadium is in Hawthorns. There are 2 teams in the football league championship and one of there names are Birmingham city which home stadium is St. Andrews and the other team is Wolverhampton wanderers which home stadium is (molineux stadium ) which is in Wolverhampton . There are only 2 teams left and they are Coventry city and whalsall fc. As there are 48 countries in England there are 12.5% of premiership teams in West Midlands because if you divide 6 by 48 which equal 0.125 so then you multiply 0.125 by 100 and the answer is 12.5%.

    Platinum
    0.621% people died in Coventry air raid because 1242/200,000 as a fraction so you divide both the numerators and both of the denominators together and the answer is 0.00621. After that you multiply 0.00621 by 100 and it equals 0.621% . After that you will need to find out how many people are left in Coventry air raid so yo would subtract 0.621% by 100,000 and the answer is 99.379%

  7. Gold:
    After searching the internet, I found that the total number of premiership league teams across England is 20, two teams which are Aston Villa and West Bromich are in the West Midlands. So the percentage of West Midlands teams is 10% of the total number of premiership teams. 10% of 20 = 2.

    Platinum:
    The number of people died during Coventry air raid was 1242, the total number of population during that time was 200000. After thinking and calculating I found that 1242 is ,621% of 200000. I found the answer by estimating. For example, I said to myself, what is 10% or 1% of 200000 and then it didn’t work, so I used I smaller numbers and kept checking until found that 1242 is ,621 % of 200000.

  8. bronze
    Coventry is 19.5 miles and 28 minutes away from Stratford Upon Avon by car and by bus it is 30 minutes by foot 7 hours b10 minutes , 7 hours 1 minute or 6 hours 21 minuets

    • The empire state building is bigger than the spires combined as the empire state building is 8094 metres sq and all the combined spires with a height of 666 metres (which I meant for my first comment)is smaller than 8094.

  9. BRONZE
    Coventry is far from Stratford upon avon 20 miles away.
    If you went on a day trip this would be 40 miles because it takes 20 miles to get from Coventry to Stratfor upon avon so you go one way to get t Stratford upon avon and back to Coventry when your done.So do 2 times 20 = 40.

  10. BRONZE
    Coventry is 20 miles away from Stratford Upon Avon and if you go on a day trip to Stratford Upon Avon you would be making that journey twice so you would do 20 X 2 = 40 and you would get the answer that you travelled 40 miles.🚗🚘🎭🎟

  11. Silver
    St michell is 295 feet , christ church is 210 feet and holy trinity is 236 feet . This will be 741 feet tall. The Empire State Building is taller because it is 1,250 feet tall to it is 509 feet bigger .

  12. I spoke to Mrs mahtani and I worked it out again the answer is .621% I know this because of our maths lesson today I can’t really remember the question but it contain the number 1500 and 35%. Miss redhead explained what to do and I used the method to help me.👍

    Using my researching skills, it approximately takes 28 minutes and 20.8 miles to go from Coventry [A46 via] to Stratford-upon-avon in a car, depending on traffic. However in a bicycle it takes, 2 hours and 22.7 miles if you head north on Ringway Rudge/A4053 to Stratford-upon-avon, as it takes 1 hour and 32 minutes more than going in a car. There are other types of transport such as walking, as it takes 6 hours and 17 minutes and estimately if you start on the via B4115 to go from Coventry to Stratford-upon-avon.

    Silver

    The total length of the three spires [Holy trinity, Christ church,
    St michael] is approximately 850 ft, as the empire state building in America is 1250 ft, meaning the empire state building is taller than the three spires of Coventry. I got the answer 850 ft because the Holy trinity is 428 ft, the length of Christ church is 124 ft and st michael is 295 ft, so I added them together and I got 850 ft. Then I subtracted 1250 by 850 to see the difference, as my answer was 400 ft.

    In the West Midlands, there are 2 teams in the premier league, which are Aston Villa, as their home stadium [Villa park] is in Birmingham, as well as West Bromwich Albion, whose home stadium is the Hawthorns. Also there are 2 teams in the Football League Championship, and there names are Birmingham city, whose home stadium is St’Andrew’s plus Wolverhampton Wanderers, since there home stadium [Molineux stadium] is in Wolverhampton. Only 2 teams are left in the West Midlands, which are Coventry City and Walsall
    fc. As there are 48 counties in England, there is roughly 12.5% of premiership teams in the West midlands, because if you put 6/48 and divide 6 by 48, which equals 0.125 and then multiply 0.125 by 100 your answer is 12.5%.

    Platinum

    0.621% people died in the Coventry air raid because if you put 1242/200,000, as fraction and divide both the numerator and the denominators together the answer is 0.00621. After you the multiply 0.00621 by 100, which equals 0.621%. Lastly if you find how many people were left in Coventry air raid you would subtract 0.621 by 100,000 which equals 99.379%.

    SILVER
    Holy trinity spire 73m
    St Michael 90m
    Christ church 62m
    Empire State Building 443m

    The three churches of Coventry are actually smaller than the Empire State Building because St Michael’s church is 90m,Holy Trinity is 73m and Christ church is 62m. When added,they are only 225m,which is nothing compared to the Empire State Building,which is a enormous 443m from tip!

    GOLD
    There are 20 premier league teams in the UK,out of which 2 are from the West Midlands,and those are Aston Villa, and West Bromwich Albion. That is 2/20,which is 1/10,and that is 10%. 10% of the premiership league that are in the UK is in the West Midlands. Aston Villa’s stadium is Villa Park and West Bromwich Albion’s stadium is The Hawthorns.

    PLATINUM
    To work out the percentage,I done the calculation 1242/200,000 and I got 0.00621,so I multiplied it by 100 to find the percentage,0.621%.

    How long does it take from Coventry to Stratford upon Avon?
    It will take 19.5 and 26 minutes.
    It takes 20.0 miles from Coventry to Stratford upon Avon if you times 20.0 miles there and back it would take 40.0 miles.
    20.0 X 2=40.0 miles

    The length of holy trinity ,Christ church and St Michaels is 468 feet which is smaller than the empire state building is 1250.

    The distance to Stratford upon Avon to Coventry is 19.5 miles. This will be the same to your journey to Stratford I know this because of the research I have done.

    There are 13.1% of premier league teams and for some extra information 13.2% championship teams and 13.3 leauge one teams.

  16. Bronze: I think it would take Coventry to Stratford upon Avon 30.6 because it would 6 hours .it 5 miles would travel because it longer than Coventry.

  17. The distance between Stratford-Upon -Avon and Coventry is 20miles. So if you go there for a dat trip it would be 40miles. The reason this is because if you just travel there it would be 20miles therefore if you go there and back that would be exactly 40miles in total.

  18. Silver
    The total height of the spires is approxametly 467 feet to approxametly 469 feet.this calculation is way smaller than the empires state building because the empires state building is approxametly 1249 feet to approxetly 1251 feet.so now I know that the empires state building is higher than the 3 spires.

    0.621% died in the Coventry air raid I worked this out because I did 1242 x 100= 124200.After this, take the two place holders from 124200 which makes 1242 and take two place holders off from 200,000 which makes 2,000 so then you do 1242 divided by 2000 which makes 0.621 and to find out what percentage of people is left in Coventry after the air raid you take away 0.621 from 100.000 which makes 99.379% and that is the percentage of people that are left after the Coventry air raid and in numbers that is 198,758

  20. SILVER

    There are many kinds of transport used all around the world,we even have transport in our own bodies.Many kinds of transport are slower many are faster but it all depends on what kind of transport you take,what route you take and many more to name.Using my research I done during our second topic lesson it takes 27 minutes and only 19.5 miles via the A46 to go to Stratford Upon Avon from Coventry.However,there are many other different kinds of transport such a as walking and speaking of walking via B4115 it takes 6 hours and 21 minutes to go to Stratford Upon Avon from Coventry just to get there by walking but because of the different route walking takes it takes 0.4 miles less to get to Stratford Upon Avon by walking so it takes 19.1 miles to get there.But by bicycle it takes via A429 and takes 1 hour and 58 minutes to get to Stratford Upon Avon and it takes 20.8 miles to get there.
