Week 5

Reading tasks:


Look through your books and identify any places from around the world by looking at the

illustrations. You could also look through a magazine or newspaper and find the names of different countries.


Help your adult to look through cookery books for a recipe originating from another

country. Use decoding skills to read some of the ingredients. Why not make it together if you have the ingredients?


Use an atlas or a map and locate countries that make up the UK. You should then

locate a contrasting country such as Brazil or Kenya. What is different? What is the same?


Follow the story When I Coloured in the World. What would you change about the world?

Draw a picture of your ideal world.













You could also practice by tracing them on your parent’s back with your finger and asking them to guess which word you are writing. Why not do some rainbow writing? Make sure you are always using your neatest writing!


Writing Tasks:

This week we will be looking at first aid. You can find out more about first aid from speaking

to your grown up or looking at



What would you do if you saw one of these situations? Would you do anything at all? Would you know what to do?

Sometimes you might feel nervous about doing first aid. Here are some important things to remember:

• stay safe;

• stay calm;

• keep talking to the casualty;

• call 999 or 112 if it is an emergency;

• do your best.

It is always better to do something small than to do nothing at all.


The most important part of first aid is to keep yourself safe – you can’t help anyone else if you aren’t safe. The first and most important thing to do is to check the area is safe.


Use your senses to check your surroundings.

• Can you see anything that might be harmful to you? e.g. petrol leaking from a car or loose cables

• Can you hear anything that could be dangerous? e.g. a car engine still running.

• Can you smell anything unusual that could be poisonous? e.g. smoke or burning

• Does anything look like it may be hot or sharp if touched? e.g. metal or broken glass from a window. If so, do not touch it.


You can ring 999 or 112 in an emergency. What sort of information do you think you will need to give? The operator who answers the phone will ask you:

• Which emergency service do you require?

• What is your name?

• Where are you?

• What has happened?

• How many people are hurt?


When you have answered these questions, stay on the phone. You can put the phone on loud-speaker if you need to. The operator will give you more information about how you can help the casualty.


If you were at home and needed emergency help for someone in your family,

would you be able to give the operator your full address and postcode?

Fill in this card with your details and keep it in a safe place in case you ever need to phone

the emergency services.


The main part of first aid is to keep yourself safe. Look at this picture and see if you can

spot all the hazards.


Write a list or ask your adult to print this picture so you can circle all the hazards.


Think about how you can check if an area is safe – think about your senses (sight, hearing, smell

etc) and write a sentence for each one.


Our information today is all about something called a Primary Survey. This is

where you think about what help someone might need. This is really important and there is

character who may help us with this:

You can find out more about this topic in the Twinkl PowerPoint included with this week’s learning. Today you should read through the information with your adult and then write a sentence for each part of DR ABC.


Your Today you should make a leaflet about what you have learnt so far this week

about first aid. Use subheadings such as

What you need to tell 999.

How to check an area is safe.

How to check if someone needs help.


Learn about one area of first aid that you are interested in such as how to treat a cut or a

burn. Make a poster telling others about what you know and how to help. Make your poster clear

and bright.


Maths tasks:

Ask your adult to give you a number between 1 and 50 and then you should list how

many ways you could make the number using subtraction. Try numbers to 20 if this is too hard to

begin with.


Today we would like you to write a subtraction number bond to or within 10 - e.g. 9-4 = 5 or 7 - 2 = 5. Can you use these facts to find out the subtraction facts up to 100? E.g. 90 - 40 = 50 and 70 - 20 = 50. Remember that you know 20 is 2 tens; 50 is 5 tens and so on.


Look at flags from around the world either in books or on the internet. We would like you to list any shapes you can see and name the properties of the shapes you find. Also try to identify how many lines of symmetry the flag has.


The project this week aims to provide opportunities for you to learn more about countries and cities around the world. Learning may focus on different cultures and traditions, famous landmarks, food and clothing.


Look at flags from around the world with your adult. Discuss which are your favourites and why? Recreate your favourite; this could be through drawing, collaging etc. Can you place the flag on a map? There are some quizzes that you can have a go at here. Can you create their own quiz about the UK?

Food Tasting Fun Find some different fruits from around the world. This could include: mangos, kiwis, pineapples, bananas. Try them with your family and have a discussion about which ones you all liked and which ones you did not like. Cut the fruits open (with an adult) and try sketching the inside of each fruit. Remember to look closely at the patterns and shapes.
Where in the World? Have a discussion with your adults about your own family heritage. Discuss with them your traditions and where your family originates from. This may be where you live now or it could be somewhere completely different. Create a poster or PowerPoint all about your own family. Can you include a map identifying the country your family is from?
Speak the Language There are lots of different ways to say hello around the world. Learn how to say hello in Spanish, French, Mandarin, German, Arabic and Italian with your child using Google Translate. Practise writing hello using the colours of the flag for each country.
