My dog is not like any other dog: he thinks he is human at times. At dinner time, he sits and waits until I’ve finished my cup of tea, then he slurps the bottom of the cup- it goes everywhere! Walter is his name; he has shiny, gingery fur with a black face. Wrinkles cover his face because he is a bouncy boxer dog. He is a very crazy dog: he lunges at people when they walk past; he runs after the next-door neighbours cat; and he slobbers all over my carpets. I would not change him for the world though.

Please complete the My Maths activities assigned to you. These are for revision but you can look at the lesson if you need help. Aim to get at least 85% on these please.
Please keep up Times Table Rockstars as well. It’s been great seeing so many of you on there daily (some people have gone up 4 or 5 levels just this week! Well done to you!)
Continue to use your maths knowledge organiser to make flash cards and test yourself on the basic maths facts you’ll need for secondary school. We’ll set up a class quiz in the coming weeks.
Extra Maths Investigation:
During an Olympic Games many national flags are on display
Here’s a chance to investigate some of them.
Pick a flag and investigate some of the following:
- What shapes can you see in it? Can you describe them and their angles?
- Does the flag have any lines of reflective symmetry, if so how many lines?
- Can you find any pairs of parallel lines? If so mark them on your flag.
- Are there any lines perpendicular to one another?
- Can you find a way to classify the shapes in your flag?
Now try with another flag.
We’ll set up a folder in the classwork section of Google Classroom for your answers.
Please see the assignment about Darwin in the classwork section of Google Classroom. There is a success criteria for you to follow and I will feedback against this. Work should be uploaded to the classwork section and not the thread for this please. Thank you!
