Our learning today;
Writing preparation - Thinking about and illustrating the main differences between Lila's life and our life.
Over the past week we have started to look at Lila's way of life.
Now we don't hear about whether or not Lila goes to school. but all children between the ages of 6 and 13 are expected to go to school. However, for children in villages like Lila's a school may be a long distance away and so Lila probably doesn't go to school very regularly.
Watch the video below to learn more about life for a child like Lila from Kenya and learn even more about how your life would be very different to a child from a village like Lila's...
From the ideas above and any you have learnt from the video above, choose 4 differences to illustrate between your life and Lila's.
For example, you might choose to compare your homes, your village, the climate/ weather, schools...
You can use the worksheet below or watercolours on plain art paper. Think about the colours you are using and think about how you would describe each difference ready to write about them tomorrow.
I would love to see your illustrations when they are done!

Our Maths Learning Today
Year 1 Maths
Today we continue our work on addition which we do by making ten and using our number bonds.
Year 2 Maths
Today we begin work on our 2 times table. We will be using the x sign to show sets of 2. For example, 5 x 2 means 5 sets of 2.
If 5 x 2 =10, remember it can be written the other way round; 10= 5 x 2
Watch the teaching video below...
So choose from all of our learning so far, which 4 facts about Kenya you would like to illustrate and explain. Here are some headings and spellings to help you...
