Hi everyone! I hope that you are all OK at home. It is so so nice to hear from most of you yesterday. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting on. Even if it just to say hi!
**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
Find out what ‘The Race to the South Pole’ was by watching the short clip on the Royal Museums Greenwich website here (scroll down slightly to find the clip under the subheading, What was the race to the South Pole?): https://www.rmg.co.uk/discover/explore/race-south-pole-1911
Now read more about the race, making notes as you read, using pages 6-8 The Race to the South Pole of the PDF Antarctic (attached below).
Now find out more about the two rival explorers, Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen, by watching and reading these sources:
Watch: BBC Teach – KS2: Robert Falcon Scott here:
Read: Ducksters biography - Roald Amundsen, here:
Based on all you have read and watched, create a non-chronological report which could feature in National Geographic Kids magazine. Try to include as many facts as possible – planning your layout before you start. You may wish to include images or drawings too.
Extra information and ideas for your layout can be found here: DK Find Out website – Who was the first to the South Pole?: https://www.dkfindout.com/us/history/explorers/who-was-first-to-south-pole/
When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online
PSHE – Picture News – How should we learn to manage our money?
As we get older, we will take more responsibility for the money we have. We will
need to make decisions on what we spend, thinking carefully about what is important. Imagine you are allowed to choose one thing to buy. You can have anything you would like, and it doesn’t matter how much it costs. Draw a picture, label it and write a paragraph describing your item – why you chose it, why you chose it in comparison to other things that are similar, what it looks like, what you intend to use it for etc.
Who can create the best routine in our ‘Rounders / Dance challenge’.
You will need a pair of: sticks / wooden spoons/ cardboard rolls/ rounders bats / access to a music track
Choose an upbeat song with a strong beat. Using the ideas within the video demo, either copy the routine or make up your own. Try and change the dance move on every 8th count Strike your sticks / implements together or on the floor on the beats as loudly as you can!
Full dance routine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtRkmsvkBuo&feature=youtu.be
To make it;
• Easier – just use your hands to clap the beat
• Harder – try a heavier set of stick and try using a track with a quicker beat
• Inclusive – try kneeling down so you are using just your arms
Send your photos or videos to me via email! J
And as always, any questions please just ask.
