Adjectives, nouns and verbs!

Nouns are words to refer to people, animals, things and places. For instance: a farmer, a cow, a pencil and a cinema.

Listen to this song:


An adjective is the word that describes a noun. For example: big, tall, tiny, beautiful and all the colours.




A verb is the main part of a sentece. It is an action or a state of being. For example:
  • My mum runs a lot. 
  • He cooks soup every Monday.
  • My friends don't like karate.
  • His sister doesn't go to the trip.
  • He is tall and strong.

Watch this video to learn more verbs:

Play with odd and even numbers

In Maths we are learning the concept: odd number and even number.

We know that if a number can be broken into two EQUAL parts it is EVEN.
If not, it is odd.

For instance, number 6 can be divided into 3+3 (equal parts, so it is even).
but, number 9 can be break into 4+5 or 5+4, they are NOT EQUAL, so it is ODD.

**When you have a two digit number, such as 38. We focus on the last number which is 8 to know if it is odd or even. 38 is an even number because it finishes with 8.

Here you have a game to play online. Click on the image or the link below.

1- TRAFFIC LIGHTS
They ensure that means of transports and pedestrians move as safely as possible.

2- ZEBRA CROSSING
 It is useful to cross the roads safely. They look like the stripes of a zebra animal.

3- SEATBELT
It is a device designed to avoid pain in case of having an accident.
You should wear it always as shown in the following photo:
