Voluntary Controlled Primary

Thursday 4th February


Today we are going to be measuring different 2D shapes and comparing their perimeters in mixed units.

We will begin by recapping about choosing suitable units (mm, cm or m) to measure different things. We will then learn how to compare different lengths using greater then (>), and less than (<).

TOP TIP - Think of the > and < signs as greedy crocodiles that eat only the biggest number, so their mouths (the wide end of the > or < sign) go around the larger number.

Finally we will introduce the main task where you will be measuring the lengths of objects around your house/classroom as accurately as you can using cm and mm. You will compare the lengths of 2 objects using > and <

Your tasks:
Task 1 - Click on the link below and use the table to compare objects. Use the sheet twice to compare 8 different objects.

Task 2 - Test your knowledge of what you have learnt from today's lesson by completing today's quiz



In this lesson, we will recap imperative verbs and sequencing words. We will also investigate using adverbs in instructions and write some sentences using sequencing words, verbs and adverbs.

We will begin by acting out some imperative verbs in different ways using adverbs e.g (stir quickly, slowly etc).  We will recap the features of instructions and identifying sequencing words that can be used in instructions. We will then think about sequencing words and imperative verbs that we can use when writing our set of instructions for making a monster pizza.

Your task - Think about what imperative (bossy) verbs could we use in a recipe? What adverbs could we use to add more information on how to do the bossy verb? Note these in the boxes on your record sheet.
