You might already know that it is World Book Day this Thursday. Because of this, all of your PE challenges this week are linked to books. They sound really fun, so I hope you enjoy working through them.
Start by working through the warm up video below. Pause the video when it says, work through the calculations and then watch the video to see if you are correct.
Today, you are going to be carrying on with your work on calculating the area of a shape. In this lesson, you will be learning how to calculate the area of a compound shape (a compound shape is a shape made up of more than one shape stuck together to create a larger shape).
Start by watching the White Rose video, but stop watching at 5 minutes 35 seconds, where it tells you to complete Questions 1-3. You are going to be doing this part today and then will continue with the video and the next set of questions tomorrow.
I've attached an answer document which shows all of my workings, so have a look at this is you're not sure how to work out the answers.

Today, you are going to start working on the next part of our topic - dinosaurs!
Start by watching the video about Dinosaurs using the link below. Make sure you watch carefully, as afterwards you are going to answer some questions based on what you have learnt. I hope you find the video interesting - I did and definitely learnt some cool new facts!
This week we are looking at a different way of spelling the 'shuhs' suffix which is cious. Start by working through the Powerpoint to explore this spelling rule. I've also included it in PDF format in case you have problems opening Powerpoints.
Now have a go at the -tious and -cious activity below. You will need to turn the underlined nouns into adjectives by adding the suffix -tious or -cious.
I've included an answer sheet so you can check your answers.
There is a mistake on the answer sheet - the answer for sentence 4 should be:
