Begin by completing today's Fluent in Five
What is the number shown?
Add 12, 345
Multiply by 5
Divide by 4
Today we will be looking at lesson 3 of Area and Perimeter. In this lesson our friends are making polygons (shapes) using paper strips measuring 1 cm long. They have 12 pieces altogether and are investigating how many different polygons they can make with a perimeter of 12 cm. In Let's Learn 1, 2 and 3 they show how they can make simple shapes with the same perimeter. In Let's Learn 4 and 5 we see how they can make regular polygons - the special feature of regular polygons is that all the angles and sides are equal.
When you are ready have a go at the Guided Practice questions in your Home Learning Journal. In some of the questions you are only given some information - but if you look carefully at the measurements you are given you should be able to work out what you don't know. In Guided Practice 2 you are only given 1 measurement because all the shapes are regular polygons so all sides measure the same. Can you calculate the perimeter using addition? Can you calculate the perimeter using multiplication?
Finish by completing worksheet 3 on pages 135 and 136 of your workbook - you will find the answer at the bottom of the page.
Earlier in the year we explored the writing purpose 'writing to discuss'. In this type of writing the author needs to provide the reader with balanced viewpoint from both sides of an argument. Look at the knoweldge organiser below to remind yourself of the key features of this type of writing.
Today I would like you to plan some ideas for a piece of discussion writing using the template below.
Begin by writing the discussion statement in your Home Learning Journal then write a list of ideas that support the statement - you should try to think of at least two ideas to give your writing depth. When you have done that make a list of counter arguments - again you should try to include at least two ideas so that you are constructing a balanced discussion. Please remember that you are not writing the discussion text today just thinking of the possible arguments you could use in your writing.

In computing session you have learnt how to create code to tell a computer what to do. Before you write code you need an algorithm. An algorithm is a list of rules to follow in order to solve a problem. Algorithms need to have their steps in the right order. Think about an algorithm for getting dressed in the morning. What if you put on your coat before your jumper? Your jumper would be on top of your coat and that would be silly! When you write an algorithm the order of the instructions is very important.
Your task today is to write instructions to make your way through the grid below from the start square to the world cup using forward, left or right turn and how many degrees.
When you have finished writing your instructions ask someone at home to test your instructions - are there any bugs in your algorithm? Can you create a different route?
