Try using this sentence starter: I know the genre of the text is a ____________________because it has the following features ________________________________________________________________.

After choose 5 words you are unsure the meaning of and replace with synonyms. Create your own sentences with the synonyms or the words you have chosen. Could you then think of the antonyms for your synonyms?

Maths - Area and Perimeter

This week is all about measurement - area and perimeter to be precise. We need to remind our selves what each measures. Perimeter is the distance around a shape. Area is the space inside the shape. Watch both Maths Antics videos below to help explaining how to find out perimeter and area. Always remember to write your unit of measurement (cm, Km, cm2, etc).


Imagine a slice of bread and jam. The crust runs around the outside of the bread, it's perimeter. The jam covers the space inside the crust, it covers the area. 


Task 1 - MyMaths Area Lesson and Homework

Have a look at the lesson after the Maths Antics video and have a go at the homework. Take your time measuring and remember to use the right unit of measurement - cm2/km2 etc.

Alternative Task 1 - Page 65/66

This starts with regular shapes and goes onto finding the area and perimeter of irregular shapes. This will make you think! Count the squares to help you.  

Task 2 - Active Learn - Marching Madness game.

This will test your perimeter knowledge. Can you save your army!?
