Friday 8th


Learning Objective: To describe a setting. 


Please have a look through the pictures of settings in the PowerPoint below. Can you think of one or two words to describe each place? For example, a forest might be dark, cold, quiet or big.


Can you pick one of the pictures and try to write three sentences about it. Have a go on your own and then ask someone to check them for you. Remember your capital letter at the start and your full stop at the end. For example, 'The village is small.' or 'It is windy at the beach'. 


Starter: Have a look at the pictures below and try to write their names. Then, try to think of one fact about each shape. 

Learning Objective: To use a ruler to draw lines. 

Firstly, use a ruler and have a go at drawing some straight lines. They can be any length. Just get used to holding the ruler and trying to keep it still while you draw. 

Challenge: Have a go at drawing a square or an oblong of any size. 


Next, have a look and see if you can see the centimetres on one side. Try to draw lines of the following lengths: 






Remember to start on the zero and not at the end of the ruler. 



Learning Objective: To know that sometimes our friends can lead us into risky situations.

To know ways of keeping ourselves safe.


Have you heard of the word 'risk' before? It is like the word 'danger'. What do you understand by these words?


Risk means: A situation that could end badly. 


Can you now think of naughty things someone your age might do? For example, leaving the house without telling anyone, playing with some matches, speaking to someone you don’t know at the skate park. Try to think of ten naughty things someone your age might do. 


Please read through the following scenarios. At each stage, can you think what the dangers might be? 


You have agreed to meet your three best friends at the park. When you arrive, one of them has brought their sixteen year old cousin with them. You’ve never seen this cousin before.

Why might this be dangerous? 


You have agreed to meet your three best friends at the park. When you arrive, one of them suggests climbing the fence and wandering through the new building site. There is a sign that says ‘Keep Out’, but there is no one there and it looks safe.

Why might this be dangerous? 


You are with your three best friends in town. You look around and your friends have disappeared. You think they are playing a trick on you, but you are still worried. Luckily, an adult is coming over to see if you are alright?

Why might this be dangerous? 


There will be times when you find yourself in a situation you are not happy with, especially as you get older, like those above. The key thing is feeling confident you know how to stay safe. Can you think of some rules that will help you stay safer in situations like these?

For example,

I will always tell my parents where I am.

I will learn my mum’s mobile phone number. 

I will go into a shop and ask for help.
