Session 1: Angles in polygons 

Watch video on angles in polygons

Recap on naming as many different shapes as you can.

Name shapes from 3 -10 sides

What do you know about the angles in triangles and quadrilaterals? What is the difference? How can you use this to help you calculate the angles in a pentagon or hexagon? Add 180 degrees for each new side!

Worksheet 1: Complete White Rose angles in polygon worksheet or CorbettMaths for slightly less tricky


Session 2: Perimeter

Session 4: Area

Watch video on area

Discuss the difference between area and perimeter of a given rectangle and how to calculate this.

Calculate the area of a range of compound shapes. Discuss different methods appropriate for this.

Worksheet 4: Option 1: Draw compound shapes before calculating their area and perimeter or complete the questions on the IWB which are trickier. Additional questions also


Science - Explore the impact of drugs

1) Before you begin, write down everything that you think you know about drugs. Not necessarily the names of different drugs, but their impact, why people take them and any associated vocabulary such as addictive, illegal, prescription etc.

2) Now create a list of the different drugs or medicines which you know

3) Look at your list and split them into legal and illegal drugs.  This may now be easier to add more drugs to your list.

4) Visit the website https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrffr82/articles/zg982nb

5) Watch the videos and play the games
