Week 1: 23.3.20 -27.3.20

Topic Work

This week's weekly question is:

                                                  How is Kenya different to England?

Can the children research Africa and compare it to their own lives in England? 

They could carry out a safe online search looking at:

  • Jobs
  • Way of life
  • Transport
  • Schools
  • Weather 

 

 Maths

  • Currently, your child would be learning FRACTIONS! 
  • They need to learn: 1 whole, 1/2, 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 1/3 and 2/3 of shapes and objects.
  • The link below explores halves and quarters. There is also a worksheet which can be downloaded on the site.

English

  • The children were beginning to write their own set of instructions, similarly to the example below (which was in preparation for their Art project!)
  • Can your child write their own set of instructions for baking a cake, playing their favourite game or planting a seed in the garden? (You might as well make the most of the sunshine!
  • You must ensure your instructions contain:
  •  - Time words to sequence the instructions (first, next, after...)

     - A variety of adverbs to describe the verb (carefully, precisely, accurately)  

     - Adjectives to describe (damp soil, delicate seed)

  • Now read your instructions for someone to follow. 

  • Do they work? Can you think of any more adverbs to improve your set of instructions? Have you remembered capital letters and full stops?
