Hi everyone! I hope that you are all OK at home. I know that you will be being kind and helpful to your parents too….it’s a strange time for everyone.
**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:
Writing – Theme: Explorers and Adventurers
Discover what life is like in the Polar Regions of the world by exploring The School Run – Polar Regions website here (a useful video ‘BBC Teach: Life in the Polar Regions’ is also embedded towards the bottom of the page): https://www.theschoolrun.com/homework-help/polar-habitats
When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online
Based on what you have read and watched, create a fact-file, suitable for a child your age, about the Polar Regions. You may wish to create a glossary for words children may be unfamiliar with. The Words to Know section of the website you have explored may help you with this. Don’t forget to check your punctuation and spelling – reading it aloud or asking a family member to read it with you may help.
Geography – Desert Biomes
Look at the PowerPoint attached below about hot desert biomes. Make notes from the information and then produce a poster/information leaflet about desert biomes. You can present it in any way that you wish.
PSHE – Picture News – How should we learn to manage our money?
Each country has its own currency. This is the system of money it uses. The currency used in the UK is called pound sterling. Find out the currency used in other countries of the world and make a table in your green book. Then, Find out about coins and notes used in the UK in the past. Does anyone in your family remember coins changing and new ones being introduced? What is a shilling?
And as always, any questions please just ask.
