Over a period of two weeks, **look up **the air pollution forecast on the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs website: https://uk-air.defra.gov.uk/ and** keep a record** of pollution levels. Now **record the data on a bar chart**.

**Create a number code** for the alphabet (e.g. a =1 b=2 be a bit more adventurous than this example) write your theme words using this code – can anyone crack your codes?!

Now ask an adult to write some addition, subtraction, multiplication and division sums in this code. Can you **decode **these and then solve them?

**Find the perimeter and area** of your garden.

**Measure different angles** around your garden or local environment. Maybe take some photos and then sort them into a table with the heading, acute angles, right angles, obtuse angles, straight angles and reflex angles. Top Tip: You can either print photos for this activity or construct your table on the computer and cut and paste the photos in.

Think about professions that involve people protecting and caring for the environment (e.g. forest rangers, marine biologist, vets). In what ways do they **use maths** in their jobs?

**Keep a record** of your household waste over a week – what **percentage** of household waste do you recycle?
