English

Please look at the picture below, then choose some of the activities to do in your exercise book from school. You could share your learning with your teachers by asking a parent to help you send a picture of your learning to your class email address.

 

Story starter!

It came from the sea, calmly at first. An enormous, slithering tentacle slowly oozing its way over the top of the sea wall, exploring the metal and concrete shapes with suckers the size of your front door.

Then, as more and more people came, and shrieks and cries of alarm filled the air, the creature became angry. All hell broke loose…

In an almighty tangle of limbs and water and buildings and people, the beast came violently exploding out of the frothing water. The normally sturdy metal supports of the buildings groaned under the extreme weight of the gigantic tentacles crushing them. Panic. Complete panic set in.

But where had the creature come from? What did it want? How could anybody stop it?

There wasn’t time for people to think. Only to run…

 

Sentence challenge!

Insert commas in the correct places in the sentence below.

Viciously an enormous tentacle exploded out of the frothing bubbling water heading straight towards a crowd of anxious people.

 

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

A tentacle came out of the water. The creature had a big head and big eyes.

 

Question time!

Where do you think the creature has come from?

What do you think it usually eats?

Why do you think it has come up to the surface?

What do you think its feelings are towards humans?

Is it possible that there are sea creatures as big as this one lurking in our waters?

 

Perfect picture!

Imagine the creature is out of the water. Can you draw or describe what its entire body looks like?

In today's lesson you will find out how to work out the perimeter of a rectangle, even if you don't know the length of all four sides.

This lesson includes:

  • one video

  • three interactive activities

 

Learn

Calculating perimeter

The perimeter is the distance all the way around the outside of a 2D shape.

To work out the perimeter, add up the lengths of all the sides.

 

Watch the video on the BBC Bitesize page https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbcnf4j on calculating perimeter.

 

 

 

Practise

 

Activity 1

Rectangle of squares

Try this activity: 

Cut out 12 equal-sized squares of paper or use 12 square sticky-notes. Put them into one long rectangle.

  • What is the perimeter of this rectangle?

  • Rearrange them to make different rectangles - do they all have the same perimeter?

  • How many different perimeters can you make by rearranging these squares?

Keep the squares of paper somewhere safe, you can reuse them in another activity tomorrow.

 

Activity 2
