The activities from the Collins Busy Ant 5c Pupil Book this week focus on properties of shapes and angles.

 

Monday 20th April:

 Task 1: Spend 5-10 minutes practising your times tables on TTRockStars. Let's keep up our (unofficial) title of reigning champion year group.

 Task 2: Properties of rectangles (pages 20 and 21)

For each of these tasks, a protractor is not needed. You should use what you know about right angles (90°) and, for the extension, straight line angles (180°) to help you.

  • Must: complete Challenge 1.
  • Should: complete Challenge 1 and Challenge 2.
  • Could: complete Challenge 1, Challenge 2 and Challenge 3.

There is an extension task available to download below - scroll to the bottom of this page to download it.

 

Tuesday 21st April:

 Task 1: Choose and play a game from the 'Play' section on Mathletics.

 Task 2: Diagonal lines (pages 22 and 23)

This lesson, you will need a protractor. If you do not have one, search for 'printable protractor' and print one off at home if you can.

  • Must: complete Challenge 1 (if Challenge 1 seems a little difficult, you could try completing the support sheet first to help you get started - available to download at the bottom of this page).
  • Should: complete Challenge 1 and Challenge 2 (Resource 47 can be found to download below and watch this catchy music video for a reminder of key words - robot dance along).
  • Could: complete Challenge 1, Challenge 2 and Challenge 3.

There is also an extension task available to download below - scroll to the bottom of this page to download it.

Wednesday 22nd April:

  Task 1: Spend 5-10 minutes practising your times tables on TTRockStars. Let's keep up our (unofficial) title of reigning champion year group.

  Task 2: Regular and irregular polygons (pages 24 and 25)

This lesson, you will need a protractor. If you do not have one, search for 'printable protractor' and print one off at home if you can.

Start off by watching this video for a reminder about regular and irregular polygons: Click for video.

  • Must: complete Challenge 1.
  • Should: complete Challenge 1 and Challenge 2.
  • Could: complete Challenge 1, Challenge 2 and Challenge 3 (Resource 48 can be found and downloaded below).

 

Thursday 23rd April:

 Task 1: Choose and play a game from the 'Play' section on Mathletics.

 Task 2: Missing angles (pages 26 and 27)

  • Must: complete Challenge 1 (if Challenge 1 seems a little difficult, you could try the support sheet first to help you get started - available to download at the bottom of this page. Remember: there are 360° in a full turn.)
  • Should: complete Challenge 1 and Challenge 2 (For Challenge 2, Part 1 a protractor is not needed. You should use what you know about right angles (90°), straight line angles (180°) and whole turns (360°) to help you. Challenge 2, Parts 2 and 3 can be solved without a protractor and copying the diagram but you might find it trickier to visualise, so if you have the right tools, draw it out as instructed.
  • Could: complete Challenge 1, Challenge 2 and Challenge 3.

 

Friday 3rd April:

 Task 1: Spend 5-10 minutes practising your times tables on TTRockStars. Let's keep up our (unofficial) title of reigning champion year group.

 Task 2: Repeating Patterns Investigation

Download the Repeating Patterns Investigation sheet below. Can you work out the patterns and predict what colour square will come next?

Make some repeating patterns of your own, and see if you can find a way to predict what colour any square will be.
