In maths today we will be beginning to learn how to calculate the area of a shape. The area is the space inside a flat 2D shape. Why might we need to be able to calculate the area of a shape?
Watch the video below to learn how to count squares to calculate area.
Have a go at practicing drawing your own shapes and calculating the area. Explain to someone else what area and perimeter are and how to calculate them.
Today is all about headlines. What is the purpose of a headline? We would like you to have a go at 'Alien Headlines' on page 10 and 'The headline game' on Page 11. Share your headlines on the blog.
Spend some time practicing forming the letters 'g', 'j', 'x', 'y' and 'z' - at least 5 of each.
Then match the words to the definitions. You can either write the words onto the sheet or write out the definitions and the words that match. Then pick out 3 letters or joins that you think you could improve and write those out at least 3 times.
Today we will be looking at a 3-dimension form of artwork called sculpture. Common materials include, clay, metal, wood, stone, ice even foods! It can also be created through putting different materials together. Really a sculpture can be made out of anything. Have a look at the pictures of sculptures below and you might like to do more research of your own.
We would like you to create your own sculpture from materials you already have at home or garden (or you could collect things if you go out for a walk). Please check with an adult first that all your materials are safe. Your sculpture can be any design you want but you must be able to explain what it is and why you have created it. Try to make it meaningful to you. As always, take pictures and share with us.
