• Welcome to our blog

    Our shared values in Y5: To care for myself and others by making sure we are all safe and happy. To be honest in all we do/say. We always work hard and try our best. We listen carefully and thoroughly. We make sure we are always giving our best, so everyone else can be the best that they can be. We look after our property.
    We like to be 'leaders' and not 'followers' We always choose the 'good' light inside of us. We make the right choices at the right time.

    Anyone can train hard for a short period. Winners give their best every hour of every day for months on end.

    In 5V we like to stop and think - before we do or speak.

    'Give children a thought and they’ll learn for a day. Teach them to think and they’ll learn for a lifetime.’David Hyerle
    If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.- William Arthur Ward
    You cannot write it, if you cannot say it; you cannot say it, if you haven't heard it. - Pie Corbett

    We love to share our way of thinking, it does help us in our learning!

AREA of COMPOUND shapes – Compound shapes are more than one shape put together – like in this video.

Click HERE to visit an interactive site that will help you understanding Perimeter and Area even more. This is a GREAT site!

Here is another site to explore area.

This SITE has a geoboard for you to explore shapes too.


If your shape is a square, it’s easy as you times 4x the length e.g. 4x6cm [all the sides will be e.g. 6cm if it is a square].

Square – Perimeter=4x6cm



A rectangle has 2 opposite sides the SAME length e.g. 2 sides [width] = 2 cm each and 2 sides [length] might be 4cm each.

So, for this rectangle Perimeter = 2x [ 2cm+4cm]

P = 2x 6cm

P= 12cm

[long way: 2cm + 2cm+ 4cm+4cm = 12cm]

Polygons: [closed plane shapes with at least 3 straight sides and angles]


Multiply fractions

Regular polygons

e.g. regular hexagon = 6 sides and all sides will be the same length

SO: Perimeter = 6 x 8cm

P = 48cm

IRREGULAR hexagon [6 sides, but the sides are NOT the same lenght]

Perimeter = 4cm + 3cm + 6cm+ 7cm + 2cm + 5cm


Great game! The target in this case is 50. Using the numbers in the grid, I can try and make 50. For example:

2 x 25 = 50
13 + 27 + 10 = 50
(8 x 5) + 10 = 50
100 ÷ 2 = 50
27 + 33 – 10 = 50

and so on. Note that I could not have done: 15 + 15 + 15 + 5 = 50 because 15 appears only once in the grid. However, (5 x 5 ) + 25 = 50 is valid because 5 appears twice in the grid.

Bar Chart – bars, they DO NOT touch  13837 X [Your age] x 73 = ? Try it out on everyone you know. Check the results each thime. Example: 13837×9 [your age] x 73 = ? Check! Try more out. Practise your fraction-knowledge Square numbers = 1 [1×1],4 [2×2],9 [3×3],16 [4×4],25 [5×5],36 [6×6],49 [7×7], 64 [8×8], 81 [9×9], etc. Can you see how 10 mm = 1 cm?

How many 2D shapes do you know? Do you know their properties? e.g. how many sides, how many lines of symmetry, is it a polygon [closed shape with 3 or more lines], is it a quadrilateral [shape with 4 sides], etc?Â
