Maths Learning- 17.06.2020

Measure perimeter

Today, we are going to move our learning on! Now that you are able to add and subtract lengths, you should be able to engage in some learning around perimeter. Click the image above and watch the video- see if this jogs your memory...

Key Questions:

  • What is perimeter? Can you see perimeter around you today?
  • How are the perimeters for a rectangle and a square different? Can you work out the perimeter of other shapes? Which ones?


Once you have finished watching the video and thinking about these questions, try to engage in the learning opportunities below. Some of them are activities, some are games and others are additional videos to support your understanding of perimeter. Good luck!

The Dilemma

We are now at our highest point of our story mountain- 'The dilemma'. What does this word mean and how could this change the direction of our story? You should now see, ready for Friday, an actual story starting to form, based around 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne. Can you see how I have developed mine? Click the image above to see how the story mountain works, and the image below to review 'The Tunnel' and spot where the 'dilemma' is...



Now, have a read of the section of my story which looks at the dilemma. Could you magpie any ideas to support your writing/ learning?


Chloe searched and she searched through the area of shrubland; she was doing this rapidly as, from the colour of the clouds above her, it looked like it was going to rain. She could not find Katie anywhere! The area she was searching was not large in nature either; a few trees stood around the edge of the area, swaying from side to side as the breeze started to push more violently against the branches. Chloe also noticed that, in the centre of the greenery was a small hole. She thought to herself, 'What sort of animal or creature might be able to fit through this hole?'

She thought it might be a mole initially, but the hole was to large. After that, she thought it might be a badger, but then again, the hole was slightly too big for a badger.


As she approached the hole, she heard something, "Chloe, Chloe...come quickly- I think I am going to need you help." Firstly, she wondered how the person knew her name then she remembered, she had heard that voice somewhere before. A small chill went down her spine and her arms became like goose pimples. Chloe had realised something- this was no mole or badger hole, but a person hole. The voice was Katie's and she was stuck inside the hole. 


The voice repeated itself "Chloe, Chloe...come quickly- I think I am going to need you help."  All sorts of thoughts were pounding through Chloe's mind- was she brave enough to go down that hole? Should she ring the police and get them to rescue Katie? What would Mum do when she found out the girls were not home for tea in time?


Chloe knew though there was only one option- she must enter the hole to save her friend. As she stepped inside, a magical force- just like a huge gust of wind- pushed her forcefully through. Her mind raced- what would be on the other side?


This is my dilemma for my 'The Tunnel' style story. Can you see how I have broken my writing down over the past few days to create a really memorable tale? I hope the resources below support you to recreate a really excellent dilemma- good luck Eagles!


Challenge 12: Everyday Numbers Challenge

This morning, I have set you an additional Maths challenge (click the image above to see what the challenge is).


Numbers can be found everywhere in football – from match results to player shirt numbers and more. For this week’s challenge, we want you to go on a number hunt and make a note of all the numbers you see or use in a day. Good luck- you may even want to send your findings in to the Premier League Primary Stars Team...

Harold's Great Get Together!

Click the image above to see what the 'Great Get Together' is all about for your thinking learning this week. The information below should also help you with this and get you started- it would be lovely to see some of your learning!



What is it?

Harold is inviting children in school and at home to join him in celebrating The Great Get Together. It's a national event that celebrates the power of caring communities!

How do we join in?

Harold would love it if children would send him something, like pictures or poems - anything that reflects their caring community.

Here are some ideas to get children started:

  • A special place like a park or garden that your community takes care of.
  • A special community group like Brownies, Cubs, or a special sports club that you're part of.
  • A picture of a lovely memory you have from a community event - like a delicious cake you ate at a summer fair!
  • Or a game that you played at a fun community event. 

In fact, ANYTHING that shows us all the lovely, caring things that happen in your neighbourhood. And there will be lots of of caring things that have happened over the last few months, while we've been helping each other cope with all the changes to our normal lives.

If you want some more ideas - check out these brilliant ones from The Great Get Together's website.

When is it?

You'll have to be super-quick, because Harold's Great Get Together is THIS WEEK! It's on Friday 19th of June!

On that day he's going to be showing the pictures and writing you've sent in on his special Great Get Together Gallery on his diary page
