For the rest of this week we are going to focus on learning about calculating area of a compound shape.

Task 1: You can choose to explore creating rectangles with different areas using the ‘explore’ button or have a go at the game. The game has different levels – you can set it as challenging or as easy as you wish.

Have fun and make sure you have lots of practise calculating the areas of shapes.

Task 2: Have a go at this game to practise your skills of finding the area of a compound shape.



We are going to continue reading our book today called ‘The Haunting of Rose Cottage’. We would like you to read Chapter 4 and complete the online multiple choice quiz afterwards.

Make sure you are completing your reading record everyday – we will check this when we’re back in school!
