Watch my YouTube Video about the activity called Pascal's Triangle.

The have a go yourself.

The famous Mathematician, Pascal, discovered this idea many years' ago.


Watch the second YouTube video about using Embedded clauses or Drop in clauses in a sentence.

You will need a pen or pencil and some paper to do the examples.


Step 1

Open the document called "Scales and Length" at the bottom of the page. Look at the first 10 questions. Don't panic! Just see how many you could do without any help. Then go to Step 2.

Step 2

Watch the YouTube video called "Scales and Length." 

Step 3

Now try to do the first 10 questions in the document. It is important to show your working, but do not write the question out first.

Good luck.

Do the work in your exercise books or on spare pages of your Maths Homework book.

Other task

Poetry Friday

Activity One

Open the document "When this is all over" at the bottom of this page.  Read the poem. It's quite a long one, so take your time.

What do you think? If you can, write down some of your thoughts.

Activity Two

Open the YouTube video "When this is all over" and see Charlotte reciting the poem. What do you think? How does it seem different to when you read it? Why do you think Charlotte reads some parts of it very quickly?

Activity Three

Stop the video and replay your favourite parts of the poem. Use the document to read those parts as well.

Activity Four

Charlotte wrote this fantastic poem by thinking about what she would do when this Coronavirus problem was all over. What would you do? Write a few ideas down. Then "play" with the words so the lines sound better.

To some people, writing poetry is one of the hardest things in the world to do.

Here are a few ideas for you:

1) Write about what you know about.

2) Use words that are fun and sound good when you say them.

3) You can rhyme if you want to, but you don't have to.

4) Use words that sound silly, but make you laugh.


Send me your ideas:
