# Week 6

 Maths tasks: Monday Find any book in your house. Can you find three items which are longer than the book and three items which are shorter? Order the items from longest to shortest. Measure the items to work out the difference in lengths. Tuesday Can you write down the name of each family in order from tallest to shortest? Is the tallest person the oldest person or not? Discuss why this might not be true. You could measure family members using a measuring tape and record the differences between them. Wednesday Play level 1 of this game to practise measuring things with a ruler. Write a list of rules and handy hints for using a ruler e.g. start at 0. How can you make sure measurements are accurate? Draw lines of exactly 10cm on a page, crisscrossing to make a pattern. When you have done, colour all the shapes with 3 sides in one colour ie green; all the shapes with 4 sides in another colour and so on. Thursday Look outside, in your garden or on your walk, can you find things that are taller than you are and things that are shorter than you are?  Make a tally chart of the number of things you find. Remember how to write a tally – 1,2,3,4 are sticks and 5 closes the gate!         Count in 5s to find the total for each category when you have finished. Friday Can you design a logo for your rocket? You must include the following 2D shapes: rectangle, triangle, hexagon and heptagon. Use a ruler, if possible, to make the lines straight. The shapes can be regular or irregular.
