In maths this week, we are covering area, perimeter and volume. You will hopefully remember some of this from below school closed and remember you can always use IXL to help you work on the skills after the lesson. 

Start each day with an arithmetic slide (you can time yourself to see how long it takes you or give yourself a set time like we do at school to see how many you can complete). 

Daily arithmetic slides

All the videos you will need for the lessons are below. You need to click on 'Summer term - Week 9'.


Begin your maths lesson by watching the video then have a go at the activities. You can then check the answers once you have completed. 

This document includes all the video links you will need for this week's lessons.


After you have watched the video, click on the PDF for the questions then check your answers. Once you have finished, have a go at measuring the shapes in the next PDF. Make sure you are measuring carefully with a ruler and using what you know to calculate the area and perimeter. 


Today, we are calculating the area of a triangle and linking our knowledge of calculating the area of squares and rectangles. 


Watch the video from the link above and then complete the questions.


Don't forget that you can continue to practise by drawings your own triangles, measuring them and then calculating the area.

Quick challenge - have a go once you have watched the video.


We are now moving on to calculating the area of a parallelogram (remember, parallel lines are two lines that never meet or cross).

Watch the video carefully, pause it regularly and re-watch it as you do the tasks if you need to. Complete the tasks below and check your answers. 

Below is an image of a parallelogram to remind you.


Thursday brings us to calculating the volume of a cuboid. What's volume again Miss Foster? I hear you ask. Well, volume is the amount of space a 3D shape takes us. Check out the BBC Bitesize video for a quick recap and then following the link above to the video for the lesson. Once you've watched the video, have a go at the activities in the PDF below.


Have a go at the investigation below. It requires you to think carefully and be resilient. You might find things at home to help you try the task practically.
