Maths

 

Fluent in Five

Set your timer and try to complete the calculation below:

What is the 4 digit number?

Add 3, 456

Subtract 3, 456

Multiply by 8

Divide by 2

 

Today we will be doing Lesson 7 of measuring area.  In this lesson we will be calculating the area of compound shapes.  A compound shape is a shape made up of 2 or more simple shapes.  It is important during this lesson that you can divide the compound shapes we are looking at into simple rectangles or squares and  there is often more than one way of doing this.

 

In the In Focus Task Charles asks us if we can think of different ways to calculate the area of the compound shape that has been drawn. 

 

In Let's Learn 1 Sam shows us one way to separate the compound shape into 2 rectangles.  He then calculates the area of each rectangle and adds them together to work out the area of the compound shape.  In Let's Learn 2 Hannah shows us a different way to separate the shape into 2 rectangles and she calculates the area of each rectangle she has made before adding them together to calculate the area of the compound shape.   Ruby shows us yet another way to separate the compound shape.  She divides it into 3 rectangles and calculates the area  of each - can you help her add the answers together? What do you notice about our friends answers?  In Let's Learn 4 Charles demonstrates a different method. He adds a piece to the compound shape and creates a large rectangle.  He uses multiplication to work out the area of the large rectangle and the area of small rectangle he added.  He then uses subtraction to calculate the area of the compound shape - does he reach the same answer as our other friends?  

 

Our friends have shown us a variety of methods to calculate the area of compound shapes.  Use your preferred method to calculate the area of the shapes in Guided Practice in your Home Learning Journal.

 

When you have finished have a go at worksheet 7 on pages 143 and 144 in your workbook - the answers pages are at the bottom of the page so you can check your thinking.

Measuring the Area

English

 

As today is forecast to be a beautiful, warm and sunny day I would like you to take your writing outside so you can gather ideas for creating your own poems. 

 

Begin by taking some time to explore outside either in your garden or on your daily walk.  Gather ideas by making notes of what you see using your senses.  Create a table like the one below to record your ideas in your Home Learning Journal.  You could also draw pictures of what you see.

Once you have gathered your ideas have a go at composing a poem of your own.  You can look at the poetic forms below to give you some ideas or you could just order your ideas in a way that sounds good to you to create a free form poem. 

Share your poems  with me at callisto@studleygreen.wilts.sch.uk.

The Highwayman

BY ALFRED NOYES

PART ONE

 

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees.   

The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas.   

The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,   

And the highwayman came riding—

         Riding—riding—

The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.

 

He’d a French cocked-hat on his forehead, a bunch of lace at his chin,   

A coat of the claret velvet, and breeches of brown doe-skin.

They fitted with never a wrinkle. His boots were up to the thigh.   

And he rode with a jewelled twinkle,

         His pistol butts a-twinkle,

His rapier hilt a-twinkle, under the jewelled sky.

 

Over the cobbles he clattered and clashed in the dark inn-yard.

He tapped with his whip on the shutters, but all was locked and barred.   

He whistled a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there   

But the landlord’s black-eyed daughter,

         Bess, the landlord’s daughter,

Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair.

 

And dark in the dark old inn-yard a stable-wicket creaked

Where Tim the ostler listened. His face was white and peaked.   

His eyes were hollows of madness, his hair like mouldy hay,   

But he loved the landlord’s daughter,

         The landlord’s red-lipped daughter.

Dumb as a dog he listened, and he heard the robber say—

 

“One kiss, my bonny sweetheart, I’m after a prize to-night,

But I shall be back with the yellow gold before the morning light;

Yet, if they press me sharply, and harry me through the day,   

Then look for me by moonlight,

         Watch for me by moonlight,

I’ll come to thee by moonlight, though hell should bar the way.”

 

He rose upright in the stirrups. He scarce could reach her hand,

But she loosened her hair in the casement. His face burnt like a brand

As the black cascade of perfume came tumbling over his breast;   

And he kissed its waves in the moonlight,

         (O, sweet black waves in the moonlight!)

Then he tugged at his rein in the moonlight, and galloped away to the west.

Science

In our science lessons in Term 3 we explored chromatography by using filter paper and water to separate the different coloured inks used in a range of black pens. 

 

This science experiment is a great example of chromatography. Chromatography is a way of separating out a mixture of chemicals. When we got our paper with ink wet you saw the ink move across the page in streaks.

 

Today we are going to try and grow our own rainbow.

 

You will need:

a paper towel

felt tip pens

water

2 small glasses

 

Growing Rainbow Experiment Instructions

 

1. Fold over a piece of paper towel (so you have 2 pieces on top of each other). Trim the length to be 7.5 inches (any longer and the rainbow may not connect fully).

 

TIP: The shorter your piece of paper towel, the better it will connect. Also make sure you are using an absorbent paper towel. 

 

2. Draw rectangles of the rainbow colors on each end.  You want to make sure to fill these colors in well so there is enough dye to travel across the paper towel.

TIP: Add lots of marker to the ends, you want a good amount of dye to travel up the paper towel.

 

3. Place 2 cups with water filled 3/4 full. You only want the bottom of the paper towel in so leave some space from the top of the cup.  Then place the paper towel into the cups, with one end in each cup.

TIP: Do not place the ends too deep in the water or the dye may dissolve into the water instead of moving up the paper towel.

 

4. The washable marker dye with slowly make it’s way up with the water to meet the other side in the center of the paper towel.

 

5. Leave the paper towel for 10-15 minutes and it will eventually connect the colors together.

 

Let your rainbow dry out and then stick it in your Home Learning Journal.  Send pictures of your experiment in action to callisto@studleygreen.wilts.sch.uk
