Read for 20 minutes – talk to someone about your book if you can. If someone can ask you questions about your book, even better! Don’t forget you can read ‘First News’ too, or listen to some stories using these links:
I have given you this link before – it is for books online, in case you are running out!!
Choose a PE activity from the PE icon or tune in to ‘P.E. with Joe’, although I think he has injured himself, but I believe his wife is taking over!! Just make sure you do something active!!
I hope you have had a chance to read the coronavirus book I posted yesterday.
Today, I would like you to write a poem about the coronavirus. It doesn’t have to rhyme. It can be any style you like.
If you are struggling to get started, why not do an acrostic poem, where you write the word coronavirus down the side and each line starts with that letter.
I have included the poem below to give you some ideas.
The world it got so busy,
There were people all around.
They left their germs behind them;
In the air and on the ground.
These germs grew bigger and stronger.
They wanted to come and stay.
They didn’t want to hurt anyone –
They just really wanted to play.
Sometimes they tried to hold your hand,
Or tickled your throat or your nose.
They could make you cough and sneeze
And make your face as red as a rose.
And so these germs took over.
They started to make people ill,
And with every cough we coughed
More and more germs would spill.
All the queens and kings had a meeting.
“It’s time to clean the world up!” they said.
And so they had to close lots of fun stuff,
Just so these germs couldn’t spread.
We couldn’t go to cinemas
Or restaurants for our tea.
There was no football or parties,
The world got as quiet as can be.
The kids stopped going to school,
The mums and dads went to work less.
Then a great, big, giant scrubbing brush
Cleaned the sky and the sea and the mess!
Dads started teaching the sums,
Big brothers played with us more,
Mums were in charge of homework
And we read and played jigsaws galore!
The whole world was washing their hands
And building super toilet roll forts!
Outside was quiet and peaceful,
Now home was the place for all sports.
So we played in the world that was home
And our days filled up with fun and love,
And the germs they grew smaller and smaller
And the sun watched from up above.
Then one morning the sun woke up early,
She smiled and stretched her beams wide.
The world had been fully spring cleaned,
It was time to go back outside!
We opened our doors oh so slowly
And breathed in the clean and fresh air.
We promised that forever and always
Of this beautiful world we’d take care!
To be able to add and subtract fractions
Continuing from yesterday.
We have done this at school, but there is a lot to remember – I hope this helps, you do exactly the same to add and subtract – but obviously make sure you do the correct operation:
C1/C2 – complete numbers 1 – 20. Do as much as is reasonable – don’t spend all day on it!!!
C3 – number 21 onwards. For the pyramids, you add the two fractions next to each other to get the fraction above.
To understand the life cycle of a frog.
Have a look at the webpage below, or use your own books, encyclopaedias or look up the life cycle of a frog yourself.
Then, either draw your own life cycle of a frog, or fill in the attached worksheet. I would like you to include some information alongside each stage of the lifecycle, to explain each stage.
