In your green maths book:

 

a)  Number sequences.  When looking at a sequence, first of all identify: simply, is it going up or down?  Is it going up/down by the same amount each time?  What is the amount?  If it changes, what is the pattern?  

 

e.g. 4, 7, 10, 13, 16.  The sequence is going up, and it always goes up by 3, so the next numbers in the sequence will be 19, 22, 25. 

 

e.g. 22, 18, 14, 10, 6.  The sequence is going down, and it always goes down by 4, so the next numbers will be 2, -2, -6, -10. 

 

e.g. 3, 4, 7, 12, 19, 28.  The sequence is going up, but by the next odd number each time (so far it has gone up by 1, then by 3, then by 5, then by 7, then by 9.  So next it will go up by 11, then by 13, then by 15).  So the next numbers will be 39, 52, 67.

 

Choose the level for you to do.  Copy the sequence so far, then write the next 4 numbers.

I will post answers to these tomorrow for you to check.  

 

In your purple writing book: 

 

b) Use the research you did about a country yesterday to write a report about it today.  Your report should be between one whole page and two pages of your book.  

i) First, think about how you can structure your report into different paragraphs.  Each paragraph should be several sentences on a topic, not just one sentence!

ii) Plan what your whole report should look like.  Include room for some diagrams or illustrations.  

iii) Write your report - this may take a couple of days.  Make sure you include lots of information and also that it is a well-presented page.  Can you include some sentences using 'which' or 'where' to add some details into sentences?

 

If you can, do send a copy/photo of your finished report to me - it would be great to have a gallery of a range of different countries from around the world!

 

I've attached an example of a report about a country below.  You can see an example introduction, and paragraphs about the people, physical geography and the history.  I would then go on (on a second page, and probably on a second day!) to do paragraphs about the culture and food, tourism and famous landmarks, and the country's animals.
