  2. Complete the ‘Guided Practice’ Q2 – write the answers on the Word document.

In this lesson you will investigate the relationship between area and perimeter and use this knowledge to solve problems.

  2. Work through the main learning.
  3. Complete the task by completing the challenges.  Think carefully about what each one is asking you to do before rushing ahead.  Use squared paper if you can, which will help – I’ve uploaded a blank sheet of squared paper to help.

This is lesson 10 of 10.  If you haven’t completed the other lessons, then go back and complete them before beginning today’s lesson.  In this lesson, you will recap previous learning and set success criteria.  You will then write the rest of your biography.

‘Catch Up’

Use this time to catch up with any work you didn’t get a chance to do throughout the week,  do some extra practise with something you found challenging or to investigate an area you found interesting.



And BREATH!  Take some time to feel proud of yourself and recognise how well you have done.  Choose an activity that you love doing, like colouring, drawing, playing a game, cooking, walking or reading and ENJOY IT.  We are ALL proud of you.  You really deserve this time for you!
