Enjoy and Achieve



Important message:  This week, all the English lessons are closely linked.  You will need to keep your completed work from each day, to help you with your next writing task. 

If you miss a day’s work, don’t worry, complete the day you missed before moving on. 

Keyworker children: If you are in school for only part of the week, take your writing to school with you and bring it home.  This will help you to understand and complete the activities.

WALT: Plan an explanation text.

Watch this clip and complete the short activity to label the farming seasons: Why was farming important to the ancient Egyptians? - BBC Bitesize

Next, open the word document and comprehension text (as this PDF has been copied from a book, be careful that you read the text in order of the numbers rather than pages).   In full sentences, answer each question (this will help you later in the week when you use this work as part of a plan). 

It is important that you keep your answers from today’s activity somewhere safe.  You will need them again for Wednesday’s and Thursday’s English lessons. 

Today’s work will form part of your plan (the middle part) for writing an explanation text:

How does an Ancient Egyptian farmer use the seasons to plan for a plentiful harvest? (Don’t try to answer this question now!)
