5.2.21 Remote Learning

Morning activities;

You'll need to log in to PurpleMash where you'll have some literacy and maths brain warm ups.

For maths, you have a game called 'Bond Bubbles', where you'll have to remember those number bonds to get a high score.

For those English skills, you've a simple one to start with practising where those capitals, exclamation marks and full stops, and then you've a task to create some fantastic noun phrases by quickly matching the adjective (describing word) with a noun (naming word). See if you can get a high score!

Article 27 – Adequate Standard of Living

Every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and social needs and support their development. Governments must help families who cannot afford to provide this.


What do we mean by an 'adequate standard of living' for children? What do you need to make sure you can have a healthy and happy life?

§A place to live in which is safe, warm and dry.
§Healthy food and clean water.
§Clothes to keep you warm and dry.
§The opportunity to take part in play, rest and leisure time.
§Friends and family.
§Medical care and treatment.
§A society that supports children and families.
§Education and the chance to learn.


Throughout history, and even today, there have been many children who have not had access to these things. Fortunately, there have also been people who have recognised this right even before it was written down. Can you research the life of someone who tackled poverty and raised living standards for people? You'll find a blank biography on PurpleMash with all the things we know a biography needs - being in time order, dates, starting with their early life, their most famous work.

Here are some ideas to get you going (just pick one!).

You could pick Dr Barnado

Harriet Tubman

Elizabeth Fry

Florence Nightingale

Marcus Rashford

Octavia Hill


You can find more here; or look up 'anti poverty activists' and see who you find interesting.


Investigation time! We've two, one fairly straightforward and one for brainboxes. Both involve the number 15 and addition.

The first one is called 'Build it up' and is linked below:



This second one is a bit trickier and you'll have to do some detective work.

Fifteen Cards


I have fifteen cards numbered 1− 15.

I put down seven of them on the table in a row.

The numbers on the first two cards add to 15.
The numbers on the second and third cards add to 20.
The numbers on the third and fourth cards add to 23.
The numbers on the fourth and fifth cards add to 16.
The numbers on the fifth and sixth cards add to 18.
The numbers on the sixth and seventh cards add to 21.

What are my cards?

Can you find any other solutions?

How do you know you've found all the different solutions?


Earthquakes! They are one of Earth's scariest natural disasters and can cause huge amounts of damage and destruction. But what causes them?


What are the effects of an earthquake? What do people do in countries where they do happen (we're lucky in this country that we won't have major earthquakes) - take a look at this example in Japan;


On PurpleMash, you have a volcano leaflet to complete. I want you to include the following information;

  • What are earthquakes?
  • What causes them?
  • What damage can an earthquake do?
  • What countries have the most earthquakes?
  • How do people in these countries protect themselves?


Challenge questions to answer for the earthquake experts:

  • How are earthquakes measured?
  • How easy are they to predict?
  • What was the biggest earthquake ever?
