This week we will be focussing on developing children's describing and explaining skills through a series of challenges. Each challenge can be found on page 14-15 of their Collins English Sats book. Throughout these challenges the spoken language aspect is the most important, developing children's ability to explain and describe clearly. You may however want to extend this learning by writing instructions, creating posters, making PowerPoint presentations or recording video of these explanations. We look forward to seeing or hearing about the learning!
Play a drawing game with a friend or family member. Perhaps even challenge a teacher from school! Think of a made up animal and describe it. Think carefully about the words you use and the detail that you give. Can you partner draw your animal based on your description?
