Hi everyone! I hope that you are all Ok at home. Please remember to be kind and helpful to your parents too (I know that you will be doing!)…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 – Wonder by R J Palacio
This week is all about the moving story of August Pullman.
‘In a world where you can be anything, be kind.’
Imagine you are Auggie. How would you be feeling before your first day at school?
Write a short diary entry for the night before you start school.
Consider the following:
- your thoughts and feelings;
- your hopes for the day;
- your fears for the day.
Science – To know the functions of the circulatory system
Look at the information sheet on the functions of the circulatory system below, use this to answer the questions provided on the question sheet in your green book.
Then, download the Who wants to be a millionaire – PowerPoint template that is below.
Your task is to use the template to create your own Who wants to be a millionaire Game based on all the information that you have learnt so far about the circulatory system. You can create general questions or specific ones about the heart and lungs. You will need 4 possible answers for each question - make sure your wrong answers are topic related and not too easy! If you struggle to use the PowerPoint then you can write the Questions and multiple choice answers in your Green Book.
When you have finished, play it with your family.
CREATIVE TASK FOR THIS WEEK: Art
Before the school closure, you had all researched, designed and planned an Ancient Greek style pot. Your task this week is to use whatever you can at home to use your ideas from school to design and make a Greek pot (or object). You can use any resources you want to make it – make playdough, make salt dough, use natural materials from the garden, build it out of toilet rolls. You can create your designs in your Green Book first before you take the plunge and start creating the real thing! I have put some images on the class web page and class story for inspiration. You will have all week to do this. Please send me photos of what you have been up to. J
And as always, any questions please just ask.
