a Pathway to Success

Monday, 8th June

Good morning!


New Monday, New Week, New goals! I hope you’re feeling ready to go. Let’s get started…



We are moving on from perimeter this week and learning about area. People often get confused between the two, so today’s biggest task is making sure you understand the difference between them. Again, I’d like you to follow the WhiteRose Maths video where it is all explained to you. Remember to pause when instructed to and have a go at working the area out as practise makes…. PROGRESS!



Let’s start the week with some punctuation. It’s been a while since we looked at or discussed apostrophes. Can you remember the job they have? They actually have more than one. We will look at each of these over the next week or two.

Today, our focus is apostrophes for contraction. You can follow the BBC Bitesize lesson using the link below where you can watch their short clip to remind yourself how to use apostrophes for contraction. They have then set three activities:


Activity 1 tests how much you remember from the video by completing a quick quiz. Can you get all five questions correct?

Activity 2 shows a video about the scientist Marie Curie. Then asks you to complete an activity spotting where apostrophes for contractions can be used. I have attached this activity as a PDF.

Activity 3 is there if you want something extra to do.


Enjoy your day.
