Something completely different for maths again today. Use the link to access this BBC maths game that you played last week. You need to complete the Fractions, decimals and percentages, shapes and measurement sections.

Don’t forget that this isn’t timed, so instead of just guessing, if you don’t know, try and work it out.

If you want to do more that’s fine ! Enjoy !

Today in DT we are going to be practicing stitching, ready for making the squishy. The first two stitches we are going to look at are the back stitch and the running stitch. These will be used to add details to your squishy. Here are some videos to demonstrate the stitches to you:

The final stitch that we are going to look at is the blanket stitch. This stitch will be used to sew the edges of the fabric together. To practice this stitch, you will need to either use two pieces of fabric, or alternatively fold one piece of fabric in half and sew along the open edge.

Here is a video to guide you through it:
