We are going to continue to look at angles. Last lesson, you looked at angles in triangles, around points and on a line and used these to help you find missing angles.

Remember: angles on a straight line = 180 degrees.

Angles inside a triangle = 180 degrees.

Angles in a full turn/ angles around a point = 360 degrees. 


Today, you are going to look at the angles in quadrilaterals. Quadrilaterals are any shape with 4 sides like rectangles and squares. These have 4 right angles and so have 4 90 degree angles which add up to 360.


Angles in a quadrilateral= 360 degrees. You are going to use this knowledge to find missing angles:

e.g. in this example, we know we have 3 angles given: 90 + 90 + 63 degrees = 243 degrees.

So we are going to use the inverse to help us find the missing angle:

360- 243 =117 degrees.

Go to this website again:


You will need Summer Term- Week 2- Lesson 1- Angles in special quadrilaterals. 

Please watch the video and complete the given task. When you have done this, please complete the sheet finding the missing angles. You can either print this off or complete them straight into your homework book. The answers will also be up so you can check your answers yourself!


Please also have a go on TT rockstars!  The battle continues- keep working hard!



Today, we are going to look at another poetic or figurative feature called Hyperbole. It is trick of exaggerating a situation, action or feeling by using extreme language to intensify the image created in the reader’s mind.

Hyperbole has to be something which is not literally possible and shouldn’t be taken literally either!

Hyperbole has a humorous effect created by an exaggerated overstatement. For example, ‘I’m so hungry I could eat a horse!’ This doesn’t actually mean you want to eat a horse! It is just to emphasise how hungry you are!


Have a look at the PowerPoint on Hyperbole. When you have finished, you are going to complete the worksheet below. You are going to match up the hyperbolic statements with the endings and then you need to identify the hyperbole in the song given. Lots of songs use hyperbole just like poems do!  



Jesus appeared to his disciples on a number of occasions after the Resurrection. He greeted them, shared food with them and then he sent them out to continue the message of the Good News.

Have a look at this scripture that shows this. There are 3 pieces of scripture where Jesus met his disciples. They were shocked and couldn’t believe what they were seeing. Once they had realised it was Jesus and it was real, they were so happy and wanted to tell everyone about Jesus’ resurrection about what he had done.


When you have read these, you are going to pretend that you are one of the disciples that Jesus appeared to. Imagine you were there when Jesus appeared to you. What were you feeling? What did you do? What did Jesus say? What did you do after this?

You are going to write a diary entry as if you were there that day. Describe what happened and what you saw.

L3- Give reasons for what you did and said e.g. speechless because you thought Jesus was dead.

L4- How is this going to shape your life? What are you going to do as a disciple now after you have seen Jesus?


You can write this straight into your homework book!

Remember I love seeing your work and the fun things you are doing! Keep sending them to
