Buenas dias! Esto Viernes!
Good day! It’s Friday.
And today is the last day of school before the holidays. So there won’t be any work posted next week, but Mrs Millard and I will be back on Monday 1st June.
We thought we might do a theme for each week after half term, with a different topic, if you have any suggestions for a topic you might like to study then let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
Earlier in the week we practised using inverted commas for speech. Remembering to start a new line for a new speaker, and put the inverted comma at the beginning and end of the speech. But just using speech can be a bit boring…
“How are you?” asked John.
“I’m okay,” replied Chloe.
“I’m not!” screeched Sam.

John peered at the two girls, who stood sopping wet and shivering on the deck of the ship. “How are you?” .
“I’m okay,” replied Chloe bravely, although her voice shook a little as she spoke. .
“I’m not!” screeched Sam with a stamp of her feet and a toss of her dripping hair which flicked water all over the deck .
Here’s a problem involving both area and perimeter. Remember perimeter is a 1d measurement- the length around a shape, and area is a 2d measurement of the space taken up by a flat shape.
