You will be continuing with your newspaper report. This lesson will teach you how to take notes in gathering evidence for your newspaper report. Remember, keep all of your work together as you will need it for future lessons.

In the Guided Reading tab you will find an extract from a text, along with comprehension questions to answer about the text. The answers will be provided tomorrow. Remember to read back through carefully before writing your answers in full sentences.

Mental Calculations

Maths

You need to know your times tables when calculating the area of shapes. For rectangular shapes, you need to multiply the length of the shape by it's width.

For example, to calculate the area of this shape would by 3cm x 8cm = 24cm²

 8cm 3cm

Try calculating the area of the shapes below. If you would like a challenge try the second sheet to work out the area of composite shapes, but don't worry if you are not sure about this as we will be learning about this tomorrow!
