Good morning everybody! This week we thought we would learn all about another country. We have chosen China because it is a fascinating country, full of amazing people, interesting traditions, fabulous places and unusual animals. We hope you enjoy finding out more!
Remember to send your work to your class email addresses:
Mr Bemister: firstname.lastname@example.org

We are going to start this week by finding out about China. Let’s start by watching a clip to see what China looks like and to learn some of the key facts about China.
Now you need to read at the information on these websites: https://www.sciencekids.co.nz/sciencefacts/countries/china.html
In your book or on a sheet of paper:
Your task is to create an information sheet about China. Write China at the top in your best writing – or bubble writing– so it stands out. Next draw the flag of China. After that, write 6-10 facts about China that you have learned from the clip and the website – look at them again, to make sure you write the correct information. Use bullet points or numbers to set out your facts clearly. Check your spelling carefully and don’t forget to use a capital ‘C’ for China. Add pictures to go with your information.
Read your information sheet to a family member.
This week you will continue to practise addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You will be practising arithmetic questions and using written methods, so you will need to decide on the best methods to use. Can you solve the problem in your head - or do you need to use a written method?
There are 3 great adding and subtracting learner guides and helpful video clips at:
There are also 4 multiplying and dividing learner guides and helpful video clips at:
You can also contact us via email, if you need any help.
Don’t forget to practise Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS)
This afternoon you are going to learn to count to 10 in Chinese. Watch this clip to learn how to pronounce each of the numbers and try to say them. Watch the clip as many times as you need. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eLP3FuuEVs
Now, in your book or on a sheet of paper, try writing the numbers in Chinese. Use this information as a guide to create your own poster.
Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record. Continue using myON to do your online reading and quizzes at: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html. We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So, go on, let’s get reading!
Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell all of the Year 2, then do the Year 3/4, if you can already spell all of those, then do the Year 5/6. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
