Maths task:

Today we will be working on Perimeter.

Perimeter worksheet

Helpful Hint:

  1. Remember that 1/4 (one quarter) is the same as 0.25. (You’ll need to use this information for the last two questions.)
  2. 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

Take care,

Mr. Craig
