Monday 1st June


Perimeter is the length measurement around a shape (imagine walking around a football pitch.)  To find it you add all the lengths together (in a rectangle there will be 4 measurements to add.)

It is measured in millimetres, centimetres, metres, kilometres, inches, yards, miles ...


Don't get muddled with area, which is the measurement inside a shape (remember - penalty area in football).

Choose your Chilli Challenge - imagine walking around the shape!

How did you get on?

This week in English we are going to be thinking about the differences between formal and informal language. 

Watch this video: 'Message to myself in six-months time'. Listen carefully to the information as you will need to answer some questions about it.   


Voices: Laura Smyth on what she's learnt during lockdown

Answer these questions: 

  • What did Laura say sorry for?
  • What two things did she say in her defence?
  • What was her hope for her future self about this?
  • What phrase does Laura repeat?
  • Why does she repeat this?
  • What four things does Laura ask about specifically?
  • What advice does Laura give herself?
  • Who does she mention in particular?
What is formal and informal language?
