Week 1 of this term, we will be continuing with our mythical writing; you could spend some time finding and reading more myths to further inspire your own plot and use of language. You could also spend some time widening your vocabulary by finding synonyms for words that you already know.
Our Maths in week 1 is all about angles and statistics.
Do you know what shapes have angles that add up to 180 degrees?
Do you know what angles on a straight line always up to?
How about in polygons? Or quadrilaterals? Or round a point?
What data is normally shown on a line graph?
How do you read them?
What can you tell from them?
How about a pie chart?
Having all of this prior knowledge will help you to go deeper with our learning in class.
