Apologies anyone if yesterday's maths didn't display properly and the numbers were all over the place! I won't trust to uploading documents again! D'oh!
So I'm going to write today's maths on here so it can't possibly go wrong!
In your green maths book:
Since to calculate the area of a rectangle you multiply one side by the other, you can calculate the length of a side if you know the other side and the area. To do this, you need the opposite calculation: division.
e.g. A rectangle has an area of 12cm². One side is 2cm long. How long is the other side?
Draw this out in your book if you need to visualise it. But basically we can work out the missing side by doing 12 ÷ 2 = 6cm.
a) Solve these in your book:
1. A rectangle has an area of 36cm². One side is 4cm long. How long is the other side?
2. A rectangle has an area of 65cm². One side is 5cm long. How long is the other side?
3. A rectangle has an area of 84cm². One side is 7cm long. How long is the other side?
4. A rectangle has an area of 120cm². One side is 5cm long. How long is the other side?
5. A rectangle has an area of 180cm². One side is 30cm long. How long is the other side?
Challenge questions: (if you're feeling confident!)
6. A rectangle has an area of 48cm². The longer side is an even number of centimetres long. Give four different possibilities as to what the lengths of the two sides could be.
7. Three squares have areas of 25cm², 49cm² and 144cm². What are the lengths of their sides?
In your purple writing book:
b) Here are some more -ough words:
through, although, tough, nought, drought, hiccough, wrought, thorough
i) Write the words out in your book in ALPHABETICAL order. Make sure you can say them all correctly - they certainly don't all rhyme!
ii) Choose 5 of the words to write into sentences. This time, write each one as a sentence with a relative clause, i.e. add a detail to the sentence with the word which/who/whose/where.
e.g. The messy, unkempt boy, whose bodily noises were a constant source of irritation to the rest of the class, now began to hiccough loudly and uncontrollably.
c) Geography. Yesterday, you looked at a general introduction to the Norfolk Broads, and hopefully found out some good facts.
Today, look again at the website about the Broads - remember there is a lot of information if you scroll down to the 'More about the Broads' part on the main page.
Produce an A4-sized poster to advertise the Broads! Be sure to include on there:
i) The names of at least 5 of the Broads or rivers here. Perhaps you could show this on a map.
ii) Information about what you can DO on the Broads, i.e. why it is a good place to visit or holiday.
iii) Information about why the Broads are a such a special place for wildlife.
iv) Both writing and pictures! Make it look good!
