It is great to see some of your learning and receiving your comments on Purple Mash.
We will be contacting you at some point this week for a catch up so look forward to speaking to you soon.

Explore maps, globes and atlases to locate the equator and the countries and continents that are near and far from the equator. Make a list of countries that the equator runs through. Choose a country or continent to research online and print a picture. Write a sentence to describe the picture.
D.T - Kites
Research different designs of kites. Think about materials, shapes and colours used.
Design your own kite. Draw a picture of your design. Label the features and materials.
Next week, we will be making our kite, so choose materials that you can find at home, such as paper, string, plastic bags etc..
A Story of Belonging in Islam
Ask children to think about a time when they have got in trouble. What happened to them? What did their parents or teacher say? Were they punished? How did they know it was all ok again afterwards? We are going to learn about a naughty boy and how the Prophet Muhammad helped him be better:
Read the story of the Boy who threw Stones and Trees. Ask ‘wonder’ questions; I wonder what the little boy thought about the tree? I wonder what the farmer thought about the little boy? I wonder why Muhammad decided not to be angry? I wonder how Muhammad helped the farmer to forgive the boy? I wonder how the boy felt at the end of this story.
After discussing the story, you could draw a picture and write some sentences about it.
