LI: To measure angles in degrees


Mental starter-arithmetic

You will need a protractor for your Maths lessons this week. If you don't have one then you can collect one from school today between 9.30am and 11am.

Firstly, have a go at the true or false question. Think about your answer and then check to see if you got it correct.


Then work your way through the Powerpoint presentation which will help you understand more about angles.

Now, have a go at pages 54, 55 and 56 in your Power Maths books. Finally, have a go at the Problem Solving question and then see if you can create your own question based on being in the town centre.

LI: To measure with a protractor 

Today we are going to be using a protractor to measure angles. 

Have a go at this true or false question. Remember to use correct mathematical vocabulary to explain your reasoning. 

Let's do a recap from Year 4. The video will help you to recall how to accurately measure angles using a protractor.


Now complete pages 57, 58 and 59 from your Power Maths Workbook.

LI: To accurately measure angles with a protractor


Mental Starter:


Complete the True or False activity below: 


For your next activity, we would like you to make a poster to show someone how to use a protractor to measure angles. 

Include this vocabulary somewhere on your poster: clockwise, anticlockwise horizontal, vertical angle, protractor, right angle, acute, obtuse, reflex

Don't forget to email us photos of these so we can share them on our class web-page!


Now we are going to try an angles quiz. You will need to draw on your knowledge of acute, obtuse and reflex angles:


Finally for today, please work through your Power Maths Workbook-pages 60, 61 and 62.

LI: To draw lines and angles accurately 


So we should be feeling pretty confident with using protractors to measure angles. Today we are going to be drawing angles. You will need a ruler as well as a protractor for this lesson. 


Mental Starter:

How did you do with that? It took me longer than I thought it would! 


Let's watch this video which explains how to accurately draw angles using a protractor:


Now see how you get on with your Power Maths Workbook questions on pages 63, 64 and 65. It's really important to use your measuring equipment accurately.


Let's finish the lesson with a game:

Friday 26th June 

LI: To calculate angles on a straight line 


*For the lesson today, the key fact you need to remember is that angles on a straight line always total 180 degrees.*


Mental Starter:


Let's try the reasoning question for today (True or False): 


Let's read some information that will explain in more detail about calculating angles on a straight line. Please note down any key information in your exercise book so you can refer back to it in future lessons.


I'd now like you to work through some examples from a powerpoint. I will also add the answers to these questions. 


Finally for today, please work through the questions on pages 66, 67 and 68 of your Power Maths Workbook.
