Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope everyone is keeping safe and well during this difficult time.

Please find below some suggested activities for the boys to do over the two-week period, 18th-29th May. There is no pressure to get all the work done, we ask that you complete what you can.

We would encourage the boys to continue to engage in other activities that they might not usually have time to do such as helping with cooking, baking, gardening etc.

Remember if you need any help or assistance, we can be contacted on our email addresses above during school hours. We would be more than happy to help with any problems you may have.

Also, have a look on the website for our feedback Friday sheet, we would love to hear from the boys each Friday & how they are finding the work. We love getting photos of what the boys are getting up to & we can share these on the school website for their friends to see.

Cracking Maths – 4th Class e-book

  1. Discuss:

Do we use centimetres or metres to measure?

  1. our kitchen table
  2. length of a room
  3. our height
  4. our finger
  5. the Eiffel Tower

Complete page 90





  1. Measuring

Using the ruler you got with your books complete the following table

Item Estimate (cm) Measure (cm) Good or bad estimate
Maths book      
Length of table      
Height of door      


  1. Centimetres & metres (100cm = 1metre)

10cm = 1/10m = 0.1m                              460cm = 4m 60cm = 4.6m

20cm = 2/10m = 0.2m                              280cm = 2m 80cm = 2.8m

30cm = 3/10m = 0.3m                              190cm = 1m 90cm =1.9m

40cm = 4/10m = 0.4m

50cm = ½ m = 0.5m

60cm = 6/10m = 0.6m

70cm = 7/10m = 0.7m

80cm = 8/10m = 0.8m

90cm = 9/10m = 0.9m

100cm = 10/10m = 1.0m

Complete pages 92 & 93 in your maths book.


  1. Adding & subtracting centimetres & metres

Adding & subtracting centimetres & metres is the same as normal addition & subtraction. You must just remember to keep centimetres under centimetres & metres under metres. You add as normal.

Complete pages 94, 95 & 96 q8



  1. Perimeter

Perimeter means the length of all sides of a shape.



4cm                                                     4cm



To get the perimeter of this shape we would add up all the sides:

4cm + 7cm + 4cm + 7cm = 22cm

                                    5cm                  5cm



                              5cm                               5cm



To get the perimeter of this shape we would add up all the sides:

5cm + 5cm + 5cm +5cm + 5cm = 25cm

Complete page 100 q1 & 2
