Maths Activity: 'Monday Madness':

If you can, print out these missing angle cards. Cut them up and you could put them in different places around you house or in your garden. You need to visit each card and work out the missing angle. Remember angles in a straight line add up to 180 degrees and angles around a point add up to 360 degrees. You could time yourself and then try it again and try to beat your time!

If you haven’t got a printer, you can still work out the missing angles and time yourself!

Non Core Subject Activity:

Giuseppe Arcimboldo was an artist who liked to arrange vegetables into faces! See the pictures below.

If children are very careful and don’t damage the food that you will need to eat, perhaps they could have a go at creating a picture on a sheet of paper or a very well cleaned table.

They could also use pictures cut out from garden or food magazines if you have any available. Alternatively, this great school website allows children to drag and drop pictures of fruit and vegetables to make a face online. http://www.middlestreet.org/archim/archimframe.htm
