Did you eat a lot of pancakes?
This week is the beginning of Fairtrade Fortnight.
We will be doing different activities during the next couple of weeks so that we can begin to understand what we can do to help this cause.
- if your child can write this sentence easily add in some describing words e.g. The wooden ship...
- Can they write another sentence about the ship?
I can recognise and understand why a number is odd or even.
I am beginning to understand how the choices we make can make a difference to other lives around the world.
I can answer questions to show my understanding of a text - autobiography.
Today is the start of Fairtrade Fortnight.
It is a time to find out about how we can help to make the world a fairer place for everyone in many different ways.
To help us to think about this the whole school will be reading this autobiography by Malala Yousafzai which tells about her bravery in working to make the world a fairer place, especially for young people.
Before reading the book ask your child:-
Explain to your child that this book is an autobiography and it is someone writing about what has happened in their life so far.
Looking at the title, cover and illustrations/pictures, what do you think will happen in this book? • What makes you think that?
• What characters do you think might be in the book? • Do you think there will be problem in the story? Why?
While listening to the story you may want to stop the slide to discuss the pictures or what has just been read.
When you have listened to the story a couple of times ask your child these questions:-
Challenge - draw a picture of Malala and write a sentence about her.
I understand how physical activity - dance - helps me to have a healthy body.
