We are continuing to focus upon 2D shapes and their properties. 2D shapes can be described using the terms sides ,angles and vertices.If all the sides and angles are equal they are called regular polygons. An irregular polygon is a 2D shape whose sides and angles are not equal.

These are both pentagons but one is regular and the other irregular.

English

Our letter yesterday to a policeman was written in formal style. We always use formal language when we want to be polite to someone we  don’t know yet. We are more likely to get an answer.

1) Have a look at the powerpoint on formal language

2) Download the  formal language worksheet and have a go at the challenges in your book

3) Open the letter up again to the policeman. Find 4 examples of where the writer has been formal and polite and copy these in your book in your neatest handwriting.
