Reading/ Writing activity

Yesterday you wrote a plan for your writing about your chosen topic. Today I would like you write it using your plan and your mind map to help you.


Before you start, look at this example which shows you where some of the features of information writing are. We learnt about this last week.



Now it’s your turn! Write your information about your chosen topic, setting it out just like the example above.


*CHALLENGE – Can you use different conjunctions in your sentences to make them longer?


*EXTRA CHALLENGE – Can you use different types of sentences in your writing? E.g. questions, statements and exclamations?





What are all the number bonds that make 100 (just in groups of 10) e.g. 10 + 90 = 100, 60 + 40 = 100 etc





Today we would like you to practice drawing 2d shapes.


*IMPORTANT – Regular shapes have sides of equal length (except the rectangle of course!)

Here’s a few ways you can do this:

  • Use a ruler and a pencil – make sure you measure the sides carefully as you draw them.
  • Use dotted paper (or draw a dotted grid) to help you draw the shapes.
  • Use this website which has the dotted paper – drawn out for you



Draw a large rectangle.

Draw a square inside the rectangle.

Draw a triangle underneath the rectangle.

Draw a pentagon that is bigger than the square.

Can you give instructions to someone else in your home to help them draw different shapes?
