Watch the following Maths video – Area of Compound Shapes.

Remember to stop the video to answer the questions and to complete the questions on the worksheet when asked.

Worksheet available as a pdf on ClassDojo and in portfolios.


This has the promise of a really interesting lesson.  It’s time to get one of the objectives, number 21, in the back of your book ticked!  However, it can only happen over Zoom!  Why?  Well, one of the objectives is to discuss books that you have read, listen to other points of view and maybe challenge (if necessary) courteously. 

Please be mindful that it’s always important to listen to other’s point of view.  We shouldn’t interrupt and if you do want to challenge someone’s opinion, think about what you want to say.

It would be great if you have a copy of your favourite book to share with others – if not, don’t worry, just come prepared with reasons why the book you prefer is the best book ever!


Now your pamphlet is complete – hopefully – it’s time to change the audience!  This time your audience is a group of adults who are looking to discover a brand new holiday destination.  Your language should be formal with the purpose of informing the public about Suez.  Take a look at the examples on Dojo.


This week you are going to learn more about different styles of bridge. After looking through the information we would like you to create an information page. Remember to make it factual and include diagrams.
