Writing – You are going to write an autobiography to detail your life history in an interesting way! As you will be starting from birth until now, you will probably need to ask your parents for help.

  1. Start off by planning what the most interesting and adventurous life events are. Gather as many details as you can from others, as well as your own memories. If you could find photos that would make it even more interesting.
  2. When you write your autobiography, create a booklet that can be hand written or word processed. Click here for a word mat to help with your writing. You must include the following in order:
  • Title page
  • Contents page
  • Timeline of your life
  • Introduction to your autobiography
  • Detailed pages, one for each year of your life, try and think of an interesting occasion, life milestone or holiday/activity for each page. Include photos, don’t forget to include a caption to explain the picture.
  • Remember to keep checking your writing makes sense.

Numbers – today focus on Writing Numbers in Words

Think of 20 different numbers and write them in words. Make sure you include two-, three- and four-digit numbers in your list.

  • Two-digit numbers are easy, just write them like you would say them.

E. g. 37 is “thirty-seven”.

  • For three-digit numbers just write the number of hundreds, then “and”, then the tens and units/ones.

E. g. 437 is “Four hundred and thirty-seven”.

  • For four-digit numbers just write the thousand, insert a comma, then

write the number of hundreds, then “and”, then the tens and units.

E. g. 3437 is “Three thousand, four hundred and thirty-seven”.

 

For more challenging work, try writing five-digit numbers.

E. g. 23437 is “Twenty-three thousand, four hundred and thirty-seven”.

PSHE - Jigsaw topic: Relationships

 

Day 1: Relationship Webs

Identify the web of relationships that you are part of, starting from those closest to you and including those more distant. Think about how it feels to belong to a range of different relationships and identify what do you contribute to each of them.

 

Make a list of people: you know a bit (acquaintances), people who you know well, friends and close family.

 

Show your web of relationships through an annotated drawing. In a different coloured pen write a feeling next to each person to show how that person makes you feel e.g. happy, loved, content, excited, funny, nervous, shy, etc.
