Tues 5th


Today we are going to be exploring a type of measurement called 'Perimeter'. I wonder if you have heard this word before?

If you go to sports stadiums, you might hear people talk about the perimeter of the pitch or the perimeter advertising.


It means the distance around the outside of a 2D shape. 


Take your exercise book and measure the distance all the way around the outside in centimetres. What steps have you needed to do?

You needed to measure the each of the sides and add them up. Find some quadrilaterals (4-sided shapes) in your house and measure their perimeters. The sheet below might help:

Is there a quicker way you could find out the perimeter, other than measuring all 4 sides and then adding them all?


Look at the rectangle below and see what you notice.


The measurements on the top and bottom and two sides are the same. You could just measure the height and the width of the

rectangle and then double them 7 + 3 = 10 and 10 x 2 =20. This gives you the same answer as 7+3+7+3.


Use what you have learnt about perimeter today to help you answer these questions:



This week in our Grammar, we are going to be looking at pronouns and verbs.


Last week we looked at pronouns and learnt that they replace nouns, so we don't have to repeat the name of an object or person. For example 'she' instead of Catherine.


When we do this we need to think about our verb and make sure we change it to match our pronoun. Have a look at the examples below:

I'd like you to take the paragraph below about Buster the dog. Pretend that you are Buster and change the pronoun to 'I', make other changes to the verbs so they match.


We are carrying on with the VE Day theme. Today, I would like you to get the feel of VE Day and explore what it might have been like to celebrate the end of the fighting in Europe.

I have attached some pictures I have put together of that were taken on VE Day. Choose 2 of the pictures that you want to focus on and describe the scene. Imagine that the person you are describing it to has not seen the picture or experienced VE Day. 


Some things to think about:

- What are the people doing?

- Where are they?

- What are they wearing?

- What are they holding?

- What do their expressions tell you?


Remember to use a range of adjectives and adverbs to help your description.


We are starting a new topic in Science this week. Our topic is...
