English: write a poem
Maths: fraction representation
Other: art (to represent your poem)
Additional: reading, times tables and have you seen that Joe Wicks is streaming PE lessons? Why not try one with your families – or leave the adults in peace whilst you have fun! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
Here is some additional information if required:
English: poems cannot be wrong! They are an expression of what people may see or feel – no rules apply! Lots of poems use rhyme and similes (like or as). Some may use personification: here is some learning about personification. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zfkk7ty/articles/zw9p8mn
Try other websites too. Type ‘personification KS2’ into your safe search engine.
Write a poem about a topic of your choice. Do you want to base your poem on witches or wizards? The outdoors? Your favourite animal? A character? You may want to use your character descriptions to help you. Perhaps you’d like to write poem about how the changes, due to coronavirus, have impacted your lives? Or you may not want to even think about the virus at all! Sometimes it’s best not to think about it. Equally, poems are a good way to express how you’re feeling.
Maths: Using objects around the house (with adult permission), how many different ways can you represent different fractions? eg. 2 carrots could represent 1/2. 4 pencils, 1 blue and 3 red could represent 1/4 or 3/4. Here is an example to help you:
Art: find a creative way to illustrate your poem. Could you use some things from the garden to create natural art? Do you have water colours or oil pastels?
Have a fun, safe day!
