English

In the book, Floyd throws an orangutan in the tree, 'who surely had somewhere else to be'. Over the next few days, we are going to find out about orangutans. Today, we are going to write some questions we would like to find out. 

 

What words do questions usually start with? What do we need to put at the end of a question?

 

(Who, what, when, where, why, can, do, how etc...).

 

Write a list of questions you would like to find out about orangutans.

E.g. What do orangutans look like? 

Where do orangutans live?

What do orangutans eat?

How long do orangutans live?

Maths

Active Maths - 'Multiplication Station'. Ask an adult to stick the questions around your house/garden. Alternatively, if you cannot print them off, do some exercises between each question (e.g. 10 star jumps, jump on the spot, high knees etc). 

The questions require you to use different skills learnt throughout our multiplication and division topic. E.g. counting in 2s/5s/10s, sharing, creating equal groups, drawing arrays etc. Move around your house or garden answering the questions/do an exercise between each one and record your answers on the answer sheet.

Answers are attached. 

Computing

After writing your questions about orang-utans, use the internet to research them. Find some interesting facts and pictures. Can you screenshot them?
