Lets get started by playing a game. It is similar to the game of ‘21’ that we play in the classroom, but you don’t need the full class to be there to play this version. May get slightly cramped in your living room, if we could all get together lol 😂.

The sun 🌞 is shining and I hope this puts a smile 😃 on your face. It certainly has with mine.
I have a little puzzle 🧩 for you that involves little monkeys 🐒, remind me of anyone lol.
You could use some items to help you find the different solutions if you want to make it hands on.
Three monkeys 🐵 are a total of 25 nuts 🥜.
Each of them are a different ODD number of nuts.
How many nuts did each of the monkeys eat?
Find as many different ways to do it as you can.
I hope you enjoyed making your angle eater and finding all the right angles. Today you will be looking for 2 types of angles, acute and obtuse. acute means that it is smaller than a right angle and obtuse is larger than a right angle, but not as big as a straight line.
Use your angle eater again to help you.

How are we all today? I hope you are managing to keep your spirits high. I’m always just a message away of ‘Class Dojo’ if anyone needs me, that is both children and adults.
Onto today’s warm-up, it is called ‘Card Tricks’.
Max the magnificent magician has 8 cards. There is a number from 1 to 8 on each card.
Max has chosen four cards that add up to 20.
What are they?
There are seven different possibilities.
Try to find them all.
What if Max has 3 cards that add up to 16?
Now that your brains are ready, today we will be continuing with our angles work. You will be looking for a specific angles today, it is called a right angle. Right angles are all over, to help you visualise what they look 👀 like, think of what a corner of a piece of paper 📝 looks like, a corner of a table, the corner of a door 🚪 or window.
I hope that helps.
To help with the lesson I have included an instruction sheet on how to make an angle eater. Which will help you to locate right angles. It looks like pac-man. You can create a character and colour it in to add a bit of fun.

By now, I think 💭 you all must know that I am a huge fan of logical problems and puzzles 🧩. So I would hate to disappoint and not give one now. This puzzle can be played online and I have set a link under this for you. The idea is, you have a fish made out of matchsticks, by moving only 3 of the matchsticks, can you get the fish 🐟 to swim in the opposite direction? Good luck.

For the little warm-up task today, I want you to teach someone in your house 🏠 the ‘nice or nasty’ game. Remember you will need to decide if you are playing the nice or nasty version and whether it is the person with the highest or lowest number who wins. I have included an instructions sheet and scoring sheet that you can refer to and use. If you cannot find a dice 🎲, I have included a link to an online dice.
