Measurement – Area - Lesson 2

LO: To be able to find the area of a rectangle/square on a diagram

SC1. I can consider a strategy for calculating the area of a shape on a diagram.

SC2. I can solve simple area problems using a given strategy.

SC3. I can create my own area problems.

Yesterday, we looked at finding the area of a shape and we used grids on a diagram to help us solve the area problems. Today, we are taking the grids away and you will need to find the area of given rectangles/squares on a diagram. To achieve this we will teach you a strategy for calculating the area of a rectangle or square.

To help you with your learning I have put together a PowerPoint and a video.

Break time/snack time

10:30- 12:00

English – ‘The House with the Chicken Legs’ 

L.O. I can define and explain what a proverb is.  

Success Criteria:  

  1. I can confidently use ideas, key words and phrases from the text.  

  1. I can interpret what a proverb means.  

  1. I can create my own proverb. 


Baba Yaga often quotes proverbs when she talks to Marinka. (Proverbs are short sayings that contain traditional wisdom or advice.) 

Here are a few of Baba’s proverbs- what do each of them mean to you? 


  • It’s not how long a life, but how sweet a life that counts. 

  • Beware the goat from the front, the horse from the rear and the living from all sides. 

  • The morning is wiser than the evening. 

  • The nightingale that sings finds a song. 


Key Question: What other proverbs have you heard, and what do they mean to you?  


Share, discuss, make notes and research further! 


Spend a bit of time researching proverbs and make a bullet pointed list of the ones that you like, with their meanings. 

Here are some to get you started: 


  • The only way to be a friend is to have one. 

  • Actions speak louder than words. 

  • A bad workman blames his tools. 


Challenge: Can you make a proverb of your own? 

If you have time, you can try and make up some of your own. A tip to help you with this would be to think of an important message first and think of a clever way you could say this.
