# Primary 3 13 5 20

Happy Wednesday Primary 3, we hope you have been having a great week so far, we have loved seeing all of your great work and the activities you have been up to. We have had pictures, paintings, videos, even a short clip of Carson doing a backflip! We are loving your creativity and it is so impressive to see how much you are doing with your time away from doing work, well done everyone!

Today we are having our check-in at 10am, we hope to speak to you all as it has become the highlight of our week getting to chat to you all and find out what you’ve been up to!

Today we have a challenge to set you all in light of not having the Olympics and Paralympics this year. The challenge is to keep active however you can and to keep a record of your activities on this website: https://www.getset.co.uk/travel-tokyo. You will need to find your school and then record what you’ve done and how long you did it for and there are possible prizes up for grabs!

Your maths today is all about looking at the area of a shape. The area is the space inside a shape. So imagine that all shapes are made up of little squares, to find the area you count all the squares. When writing your answers for the area of a shape you write it as cm² – the small 2 means ‘squared’. There will be shapes in future activities that don’t have squares drawn on and then you need to use multiplication, however we will worry about that when we get there! I will also put up an area instructional video in Teams to help you! Choose your own challenge level:
