LO: to know the features of triangles and understand how to sort them mathematically

SC1: I can name all types of triangles

SC2: I can list the properties of the types of triangles

SC3: I can compare and classify triangles, based on properties including types of angles

Watch the tutorial to find out what you need to do today!

ACTIVITY: Everyone is to complete the activity sheet identifying the types of angles and naming the triangles. If you can’t remember the names, go back to the BBC website to help you. RESOURCE - Classifying triangles

Orange and red chillies: You should aim to complete the extension as well as the activity. Answer the questions using reasoning and justification. RESOURCE - Triangles extension

Red chillies (if you have time): You can choose to have a go at the investigation on the PowerPoint if you would like to. RESOURCE - Triangle investigation


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!

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


11:00 – 12.00


LO: to understand how a story is planned/structured

SC1: I can read a text fluently and understand its content

SC2: I can recognise the key aspects of a story structure

SC3: I can plot a familiar story in a planning structure

Watch the tutorial to learn about how we effectively plan stories and how we are going to practise this using part of Mr Stink.



Watch the video up to 7minutes and 25 seconds. Then complete step 1.

Step 1: use your summarising skills to pick out the key parts of the 2 chapters for putting into the story mountain.

Support resource - story notes

Finish watching the tutorial explaining the story map. then complete step 2.

Step 2:

Green chilli: re-read copies of Chapter 16 and create a story mountain showing its structure. Write on you story copies, identifying which bit is which part of the mountain – you may wish to use highlighter pens for this.

Orange chilli: as green chilli and write a caption for each character within each of the four story sections (e.g. Mr Stink – excited/Mother – worried). On the Story Mountain Structure They could write each character in a different colour.

Red chilli: as green and orange chilli and add in the emotions of the characters at each stage of the chapter.

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 environmental art which is a kind of sculpture (so you may have incorporated it yesterday!) but we felt definitely needed its own day for research and experimentation!

Task 1: On an A4 piece of paper/ document on your computer (your choice!) create a mood/ ideas board with images and information about environmental art that has elements of geometry within it. You could include some of your favourite designs, the names of any famous environmental artists, details about what natural materials are used, and anything else you discover that you’d like to add! See my attached example ‘Environmental Art Mood/ Ideas Board’.

Task 2: Use your research to create your own geometric environmental art. You could use leaves, twigs, shells, acorns, conkers, bark, stones, ice or snow (if we get any more!) and anything else you can think of! It’s a great opportunity to get out and about if you are able to and collect some resources. Remember your piece of art could be tiny, medium or big, as long as it includes some geometry or repeating patterns, and 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.
