Good morning Year 5.
Welcome to a new week of home learning.
Today, I would like us to start thinking about VE Day.
VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) is a day celebrated on 8th May, as we remember and celebrate the surrender of Nazi Germany to the Allied Forces in 1945, ultimately ending the Second World War.
I would like you to complete the following reading comprehension.
Today we will be working on Perimeter.
Perimeter is the total length of the outside of a shape.
I would like you to calculate these perimeters:
- Remember that 1/4 (one quarter) is the same as 0.25. (You’ll need to use this information for the last two questions.)
- If there are missing values for a side, you can use the opposite sides to calculate this.
Why not try making some of these war time recipes with your family (always with adult supervision), I think I’ll be trying a few of these myself this week.
Enjoy your learning
