*Spend 10 minutes on TT Rock Stars. *

*Our current Year Group Battle ends just after midday on Sunday – for those of you who haven’t logged in yet, you’ve got a bit more time to contribute to your class total.*

__Starter Activities__

*Practise your 7x table again - remember that we say the whole number sentence (1 x 7 is 7, 2 x 7 is 14 etc.) rather than just counting up and down in steps of 7! Can you now answer questions in a muddled up order? Perhaps you could ask someone at home to test you! *

*If you have access to a device connected to the internet, play ‘Hit the Button’ *__https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button__*
Select the 7x table; play a couple of times, record your top score! How much have you improved during the week?*

*Alternatively, if you don’t have access to a device, get your set of 7x table question cards. Place them face down and see how quickly you can answer them in a random order. Record your top time! Are you getting faster than your previous attempts? *

__LO: To calculate the perimeter of shapes__

*Today we’re going to build on our learning from yesterday – beginning to use information other than counting squares to help us calculate the perimeter of shapes. *

* *

*Check back on Thursday’s maths page if you need some reminders about perimeter. *

* *

*To warm your brain up, and extend your learning from yesterday, have a go at finding the perimeter of the shapes on the starter sheet attached. You don’t need to print this to be able to access the learning. *

*We’re now going to look at examples of finding perimeters where we don’t need to count squares. *

* *

*Where we are given measurements, we can simply add them together to find the perimeter of a shape. *

* *

*In this example we can add the numbers together like this:*

*4+3+4+3= 14cm*

*Can you write the equation for the next example?*

*You should have: 5+3+5+3=16cm*

*Have a go at the questions on this sheet – again, you shouldn’t need to print this out in order to access the learning.*

__Plenary Task__

*Have a go at the challenges below, think about what other maths knowledge you might need to know to help you. *
