Each week we will focus on a different country, and this week we are learning about Australia.
It might be useful to make the first Geography lesson the first activity you do. This involves locating Australia on a map and thinking about it's proximity to us. For this you can view the coloured map attached, or you could print off the black and white map, and colour in the country we are learning about. If you do this, then keep hold of the map and you can add to it by colouring in the countries we learn about throughout the rest of the topic. Alternatively feel free to use anything you might have at home already. When you have done this have a look at the Australian flag and have a go at drawing one yourself.
Choose two Australian animals from the Reading Comprehension. Compare their similarities and differences. See separate notes.
Write a postcard from Australia to someone in your family. See separate notes.
This week we have included some Place Value and Addition & Subtraction revision lessons. Knowledge organisers are attached to help support these activities. We have also included some place value and addition & subtraction questions from previous SATs papers. Feel free to use the organisers for this activity also if they are needed, or alternatively you may wish to see how well your child can answer the questions unsupported.
