Week 8 (02.06.20)


This week we are learning about measuring area and perimeter. There are 3 videos this week to help you with your learning. If you have any questions then please email us.


Lesson 1 - Measuring the surface the an object covers.

  • Make some square tiles or use post it notes.
  • Find a picture that you can cover.
  • Estimate how many squares it takes to cover your picture.
  • Try it out – place your squares over your pictre. Try not to overlap any squares so you are as accurate as possible.

Have a go at pages 103 + 104 in your workbook. You can make a square tile similar to the one in the workbook to help you.

Lesson 4- SPAG 


Today we are looking at the suffix -ous. Remember a suffix comes at the end of a word. The suffix -ous means ‘full of’


Task 1- Write down as many words as you can which end in –ous (spacious)


Rules for adding ‘-ous’

Word ending in y – delete the y and add ious

Words ending in ge – add ous

Words ending in ce – drop the e then add ious


Task 2- Complete the table with your own –ous words. Use the rules to help you with the spelling.
