Voluntary Controlled Primary

Wednesday 3rd February


Today we are going to be looking at different 2D shapes and calculate their perimeters in mixed units

We will begin today's lesson by recapping finding the perimeter of shapes when we are the given measurements of a side or sides.  We will move on to finding the perimeter of shapes that have mixed units as measurements for the sides using cm and mm. We do this by adding all the cm from all the sides and then by adding the mm.

REMEMBER - If the mm comes to more than 10mm that is an extra cm!

Your task

Task 1 - Find the perimeter of the shapes given on the activity. Each side is the same length.

Task 2 - Measure the length of the sides of the shapes and find the perimeter


In this lesson, we will practise the rules associated with adding the suffixes -er and -est. We will learn how to practise using the colour blocking strategy.

We will begin by looking at the various rules that we learnt in previous lessons:
- Add suffix -er or -est to the root word to form an adjective

- If a root word ends in 'e', we must remove the e before adding -er or -est to form an adjective 
e.g ripe becomes riper

- If the root word ends in a 'y', change the y to an i before adding the suffix
e.g. happy --- happier --- happiest

- If the root word has a short vowel sound (/a/, /e/, /i/, /o/, /u/ sounds), we add an extra consonant - the same as the last consonant
e.g. big --- bigger --- biggest

Watch the video lesson to find out more:

Your task - You are going to practise adding the -er and - est suffix using 2 of the rules; changing the 'y' to an 'i' and the double consonant rule. Write out the sentences putting the correct spellings of the given word. All of the missing words will require you to add the -er or -est suffix. Fill in the table adding -er and -est endings to the words

In todays topic lesson, we are going to find out about some of North America's most important human characteristics.
We will be learning about the major cities in North America. We will also be learning about how agriculture, forestry and mining are important for the continent economically. Finally, we will learn about the natural resources that North America has and where these natural resources are located within the continent.
