Year 5 Maths Challenge

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

1. Habiba Dufa

The answer is min form Coventry to Stafford-upon-Avon.I know this because it took 30 minutes to arrive to Stafford-upon-Avon.

2. Suleman Khan

Bronze

I think the answer is 19.5 miles away

I think this because if it was 25 miles that would be a lot further so, I estimated that the answer was 28 mins

3. Damien Davies

holy trinity – 47.9 meters tall
Christ Church – 37 meters tall
St Michael – 74.75
37+47.9+74.75=159.65 meters
If you combine the spires together it will be smaller than the empire state building.Because the spires together would be 159.65 meters but the empire state building is 443.2m meters .This is also because Christ church,st Michael , holy trinity has got 100 is smaller 400.This is also because 100 has more value than 400.

Bronze

• Fatima Sheikh Naz

BRONZE-coventry is 35 minutes away from stratford upon avon .It would be 2-3-4 or 5 miles

I think this because 35 is a short time because if it took 1 whole hour it would be 5 or 4 miles away.

5. Sami Mohammed

holy trinity – 47.9 meters tall
Christ Church – 37 meters tall
St Michael – 74.75
37+47.9+74.75=159.65 meters
If you combine the spires together it will be smaller than the empire state building.Because the spires together would be 159.65 meters but the empire state building is 443.2m meters .This is also because Christ church,st Michael , holy trinity has got 100 is smaller 400.This is also because 100 has more value than 400.

Platinum
So 0.621% of the population during the raid sadly died either fighting or protecting
1241 divided by 200000 = 0.621%

8. Takwa Shanab

Bronze challenge:

The answer is 40 miles because we calculated that from stratford-upon-avon to coventry is 20 miles so we go there and back so times it by 2 so we get 40 miles.

20miles OR 20 miles X 2 = 40 miles
2 X

Silver challenge:

Holy Trinity church:47 meters
Christ church:37meters
St Michael’s church:74 meters

Gold Challenge:

Platinum Challenge:

The answer is 0.621% because we divided 1,242 by 200000 then we got 0.00621and its 0.621%.

200,000 divided by 1242 =0.621

It takes 25 MIN to go by car from Coventry to Stratford Upon Avon.If you go on a day trip it will take you 26 min 19.4 miles via A46.

10. Usman Khan

platinum

0.621% of the population died during the coventry air raid.Below is my working out.
1241 divided by 200000 is 0.621

11. Nabeel Ahmed

Silver challenge

Holy trinity is 47.9m tall

Christ church is 37m tall

St Michael is74.75m tall

37+47.9+74.75=159.65m

When you combined the spires it will be smaller than the Empire State Building because the spires together would be 159.65m but the Empire State Building will be 443.2m.

12. Kayden-Shai Roberts

Gold:

The percentages of the premiership terms are from West Midlands is 74%.😁

13. Chahaldeep Gill

Bronze

It will take 27 minutes with car taxi same train 1 hour 26 minutes 7 hor walk 1 hour 54 with bike

Silver
Holy tinity 47.9m tall
Christ church is 37m tall
St.Micheal 74.75
So my guess is that if you add all them togther will be 156
.65 because all of them added together eaquls 156.65 because i had got the cm of the places and added together.

14. Shahjahan Kamran

Stratford is 20 miles away.
You will travel 40 miles because 20 + 20 = 40.

Silver:
Holy Trinity is 47.9 meters in height
Christ Church is 37 meters in height
St Michaels is 74.75 meters in height.
If you add them all together you get 159.65

16. Layla-Jayne Entwistle

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.

Holy trinity:237 feet tall
St Michaels :295 feet tallest
Christchurch:230 feet tall

295feet
237feet
230feet
762feet1 1

Empire State Building

454 feet ,443.2 metres tall. Its name is from the nickname for New York, where it is structured, the Empire State. It stood fantastically as the world’s tallest building for nearly 40 years.

All of the three spires added together gave the total of 762 and the empire state building is 454 feet so the empire state building is smaller than the three spires. I know this because 762 is a greater number than 454.

17. Priya Mattu

silver challenege

1) christ church – 37 M
2) Holy Trinity – 47.9 M
3) st michael – 74.75 M

74.75 + 47.9 + 37 = 159.65 M

18. Reece Simpson

33 mins to get there by car.

19. Sharazat Hussein

Silver:
Holy Trinity is 47.9 meters in height
Christ Church is 37 meters in height
St Michaels is 74.75 meters in height.
If you add them all together you get 159.65

20. Elyass Daud

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.
Holy Trinity is 47.9 meters in height
Christ Church is 37 meters in height
St Michaels is 74.75 meters in height.
If you add them all together you get 159.65 which is lesser than the Empire State which is 381 meters in height. This means that The difference between the Empire State and the three spires is 222.64 cm because if you subtract 159.64 from 381 it gives you 222.64 which is the difference.

21. Hafsah Khan

Gold:The pecentege of the gold chalange is 74/

22. Abir Hussain

SILVER
😊😊😊🏰🏰 altogether all 3 cathedrals equals 425 metres silver awesome
It will be taller because there are three cathedrals and one Empire Building which means that the cathedral is bigger together.

25 min and 20 miles I know because to Birmingham it is 30 min and then to stradford is 25 min that’s how I know.
silver
Holy Trinity is 47 meters tall
chist church 37 meters tall
st Michaels church 74 metres tall
Empire state is way bigger than the three spires together empire state is biggggggggggggg.

24. Nuh Mohammed

Holy trinity:47.9m 47.9*74.75**37= 159.65
St Michaels:74.75m
Christ church:37m
This is bigger then the empire State building as it is 443.2m.

25. Inaaya Khan

Silver:
Holy Trinity=47.9m
Christ Church=37m
St Michael Church=74.75m
If u add all of them together…
47.9+37+74.75=159.65m
The spires all together are smaller than the Empire State because the spores all together are 159.65m and the Empire State is 443.2m.

• Nithusha Naguleswaran

Inaaya it is “you” not “u”

26. Shkula Mayar

Silver:

Holy trinity’s spire is 72 meters and the building without the spire it is 59 meters. If you add them together it will give you the total of the whole length which is 131 meters tall. And it is one of the tallest cathedral in the UK.

Christ church is 37meters in total.

St Michael is 74.75 meters in total.

If you add all of these it will give you 242.75 .

Empire state building is 443m.

The total of the spires are smaller than the Empire State Building. I know this because if you add all of the calculations for the spires it will give you a smaller amount than 443 m.

Platinum:

The answer is 0.621%. I know this because I multiplied 1242 by 100 which will give me 124200 and divided 124200 by 200,000 which gives me 0.621.
And as a result 1242 is 0.621% of 200,000.

27. Abdul Akbar-Tahir

It will take 29 minutes to get to stratford from coventry.It takes 20 miles to go to Stratford Upon Avon from Broad Heath.I know this because i checked on google maps and searcherd on google.Altogether it will take 49 miles altogether because 29+20=49.

30. Maleeha Memi

Bronze-

Stratford Apon Avon is 29 mins from Coventry.
Prediction : 15 miles to go to Coventry
It takes 20miles on an average day to get to Stratford Apon Avon.

I know this because I went on Google and researched how long it would take.

Silver-

Holy Trinity – 237ft
Christ church – 230ft
St Michales 295ft

237 + 230 + 295= 762ft
This is the same as about 254 meters
Empire State Building 381meters

The spires combined are smaller than the Empire State Building as the Empire State Building is 127meters bigger. I also know it because I have worked it out.

Gold-

West Brom and Stoke are the only teams in the premiership that are from the West Midlands.
In total there are 20 teams
So 2 out of 20 is 10%

Platinum

1242 people died from population of 200,000 . I can write this as a fraction , like 1242 / 200,000

Then to get a percentage I multiply this fraction by 100. The answer will be 0.621%
