Then complete purple mash; Days of the week, Months of the year.


Geography - This half term our unit is; Hot and Cold Places of the world. The purpose of geography study is to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world. This unit aims to help children to think geographically and to equip them with some knowledge about the hot and cold places of the world and how these are different from the UK.


Lesson 1 - Our literacy book is called lost and found. Listen to the book on the link below;

Can anybody tell me where the penguin lives?

He lives at the south pole. Which we also call the Antarctic. Hold up a globe (show pictures or view on this link) showing your child where the Antarctic is.

Opposite the south pole is the north pole. Which is also called the Artic.

This is what our world looks like there is an imaginary line around the middle of the world which is called the equator. The equator is sunnier therefore it is hotter. If you live near the equator it is hot. So, we are going to colour this bit red. This is the warmest part of earth. The poles are furthest away, and they are the coldest places covered with snow and ice.

  • Polar bears live at the Artic.
  • Penguins live in the Antarctic.
  • We live in-between.


Complete the sheet attached. I have attached a blank sheet and a sheet completed by a child so to support you.


I will be monitoring any work set on Purple Mash to see who is accessing home learning. For any other work completed, if you could send me a photo to my email and then we can provide feedback or support.


Home learning is compulsory. I will have to contact parents if no home learning is being accessed. If you are having problems, please contact school or email me with the email address provided above.


Kind regards,

Miss Hargreaves
