We are continuing to practice place value. The children need to be secure at recognising that a 2 digit number is made up of tens and ones. The ones go in place of the 0 in a ten (e.g. 20 + 5 = 25, the 5 has jumped in place of the 0).
Red crayon has sent us some postcards from him holiday around Europe. Today, I would like you to pick two of the postcard pictures and describe the setting. I would like you to think about what you might hear, see, smell, use all the senses! You will have to use your imaginations, it may help to watch some videos of these locations if you need help.
Smell - salty from the sea, fresh, smokey from the city...
Hear - noisy busses, people talking, peaceful waves, bells (big ben)...
Sight - The golden sun is glowing through the pillars...
The children must make sure they are extending their sentences if they can, using a range of adjectives (you may introduce new adjectives to expand their vocabulary bank). Make sure you are using all elements of our writing; capital letters, full stops, adjectives, 'and', beautiful handwriting.
As red crayon is on holiday around Europe, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity for us to learn more about the continent. Red crayon visited lots of countries that have important landmarks:
Big Ben - London, UK
Eiffel Tower - Paris, France
Leaning Tower of Pisa - Pisa, Italy
La Segrada Familiar - Barcelona, Spain
Have a look at the map below, can you locate the different landmarks on the map? Once you have done this, I would like you to write a sentence about each landmark. You will have to do some research to help you.
E.g. Big Ben is a huge clock in the city of London which is in the United Kingdom.
