Hi everyone! I hope that you are all OK at home. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting on. Even if it just to say hi! J
**Please just do what work you can and please please don’t worry if you don’t do it all. I’d rather give you lots to keep you busy than not enough. If you wish to do alternative activities, that is also absolutely fine. Just do what is right for your family situation. Also, if you get stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. **
Today’s activities are as follows:
Theme: Climate Change
Use all you have read over the past two weeks about climate change to create either of these two writing outcomes:
Mini-documentary: Imagine you have been asked to create a mini-documentary about climate change to feature on BBC. Select the topics that you have found most interesting and write a script informing others about climate change. You may wish to design posters, pictures or diagrams to be included in your documentary. If possible, video your mini-documentary and send to your teacher.
Non chronological report: Create a non-chronological report about climate change. Select the topics you found most interesting and write a section for each.
Remember to proof-read your work to check it makes sense and for spelling and punctuation.
Geography – LO: To know what contours and gradients are.
Watch the two clips below

When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online
Then create your own topographic model out of whatever materials you like. E.g card , playdough , mud etc. Make sure that your model has got a steep gradient on one side and gentle one on the other.
Here is an example – It does not need to be to scale.
Send photos in to me of your finished models J
DT – Antoni Gaudi - Textiles & Mosaics
To begin this unit, I want you to use the 2 PowerPoints that I have attached below to research the famous architect Antoni Gaudi whose work we will be using as a focus. You can present the information however you wish in your green book.
And as always, any questions please just ask.
