Watch the following maths video – Count Money (Pounds)


The book A Long Walk to Water tells the stories of two different children, Nya and Salva. Today we are going to compare the two characters. We are going to identify their similarities and their differences.


Can you improve the text below by adding adverbs, conjunctions and appropriate adjectives?

Using a thesaurus, can you find synonyms for the words in bold?

Dear Diary,

It has been such a short length of time since my last entry, however, everything has changed. The group I was with left me. I woke up and I was all alone. Then I was walking and I saw a woman. She was sat by the lake. I was a bit scared to go up to her but I did anyway. She looked after me for a bit.   



At the moment, we can’t go on holiday but, I’d like you to pretend for today that we can! You have been asked to plan a holiday to a location in Africa and you need to produce a leaflet which shows what you have planned:

You need to tell me:

  • The location of your holiday:

What country is it in in? 

Is it by the coast?

How long would it take to fly there?

  • The weather and climate:

What should we pack?

What weather can we expect?

What is the average temperature there?

  • Physical geographical features:

Are there any mountains nearby?


Can we go on safari?

What things could we do?

  • Human geographical features:

Are there any large cities nearby?

Are there any famous buildings there?

Make sure you include some photographs of the location and identify where it is on a map.

Remember to use the internet safely and responsibly. Below are some ideas of locations and websites:

  • Cape Verde
  • Egypt
  • Morocco
  • Tunisia
  • Tanzania
  • Kenya
  • Victoria Falls
  • Mount Kilimanjaro
