PE Zumba challenge

Day 2 of your Zumba challenge.


On Friday, you looked at calculating the perimeter of rectilinear shapes. Today, we are looking at calculating the perimeter of irregular polygons. This is why it is really important to think of yourself as an ant walking around each side in a logical way so as to end up back where you started.

The only complication with irregular shapes is that sometimes you may have to work out the value of missing lengths.

So watch the following video clip, only up to 2 minutes. The beginning part you will recognise because you used that on Friday.

Now, carefully work through the PowerPoint below applying the skills shown in the video clip.

Have a go at calculating the perimeter of composite shapes choosing either the * or ** challenge options. It is really important that you work out the value of the missing lengths. Then count methodically all the way around the shape, otherwise you are guaranteed to miss a side out. Remember to self mark your answers.

Then if you wish you can apply your measuring skills to calculate the perimeter of shapes using a ruler in the *** challenge.


We are going to return to our book "The Chocolate Tree". Read on from "Hundreds of cacao trees …." on page 30 up to the end of page 33 before chapter 4 begins.

What was Kukulkan's decision, remember that every action comes with a consequence that could either be positive or negative. Can you generate some ideas to support these two different consequences.

Check against the possibilities documented below.

We would like you to predict what you think happens next and the consequences for Kukulkan. You may wish to act this out with members of your household or use your teddies/soft animals. Think about what happens when Kukulkan snatches the tree and flys back to Earth.

Make some notes of the key detail of your prediction as you will need this for tomorrow's lesson.


Lesson 5 - Soundproofing

Today, you are going to find out what soundproofing is, why we need it and how we can do this.

Read through the Powerpoint below and have a go at identifying materials that could be used for soundproofing. Complete the "soundproofed studio worksheet" using slides 7-10 on the powerpoint to help you.
