Watch the tutorial to find out about quadrilaterals and how we sort them using their properties.


Green chillies: complete the activity sheet about angles in quadrilaterals

Red Chillies: complete the problem solving activity


Break time/snack time

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!

You need to keep your body active so that your brain can keep active too.

LO: to use knowledge to plan a story

SC1: I can think of an interesting story idea

SC2: I can decide where the story will take place and who the characters will be

SC3: I can decide on an effective story ending

Watch the tutorial where I go through the PowerPoint discussing how we plan an effective story.

ACTIVITY: Use Mr Stink as inspiration for your own story, trying to include humour and maybe a main character that is a child, and plan a story that you want to write. Yuo will be doing your in depth planning tomorrow so today is just notes. This is your story - completely new and different (but we can borrow ideas from stories we know). Make sure you only use notes. Just give a brief overview of the story (like a summary) as you will be planning the elements tomorrow in depth. List the characters and where the story takes place.

Art Project


As explained on Monday, we are going to continue researching and experimenting with different types of geometric art. Today we will be looking more closely at geometry in fashion, design and textiles.

Task 1: On an A4 piece of paper/ document on your computer (your choice!) create a mood/ ideas board with images and information about geometry in fashion, design and textiles. You could include some of your favourite designs, the names of any famous designers, examples of famous patterns or geometric fashion images, details about the time period they may have been popular and anything else you discover that you’d like to add! See my attached example ‘Fashion, Design and Textiles Mood/Ideas Board’.

Task 2: Today it will probably be trickier to put your research into practice as we understand none of you are fashion designers and don’t have the resources to create a fashion or textiles design. However, if you can find any old fabric (that you’re allowed to use!), you could definitely explore using felt tips/ paints/ inks to create a piece of art. If you don’t, please don’t worry! Instead, you could draw a design of something that uses geometry in fashion or textiles, e.g, design a scarf, sofa, handbag or pair of shoes! Remember this isn’t your final project so you don’t need to spend ages (unless you want to!) – it’s just a chance to try it out.
