Maths: Monday 8th June

We will be using Mymaths in our maths lessons this week.  If you have forgotten your log in please email your class teacher.

In maths this week we are going to start looking at properties of shapes – focusing on angles.  In this lesson you will learn that angles are measured in degrees, and should be able to estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles. 

First watch this clip:

You will find the first lesson by going into Geometry – Properties of Shape – Y5 Angles 3.  We have set the online homework too, just in case you want to give it a go, although you don’t have to.

English task:  This week in English we are going to be looking at part of a text from The Last Wild by Piers Torday.  This is the text we should have been studying in school this term!  It is a great text and we recommend that if you can get hold of it to read it!  The task we would like you to do today is explained in the document below.
