Maths: angles

Reading: summarising

You will need a copy of the First News paper again.

Challenge: Go on to the BBC Sport website (https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport), or a different age-appropriate website, and choose an article to read. Once you’ve read it, summarise the article in 20 words. Then, try again in 10 words. After that, have a go at summarising in 5 words. Finally, summarise the article in 1 word.
