Week 12

English

 

This week, your English tasks are all based upon developing fantastic descriptive writing.  You will use pictures and text to inspire you - and even have a go at creating your own imaginary world!

Just follow the instructions on the document below, which is called "The Alchemist."

 

Maths

 

In our Maths lessons, we have been looking at money.  We have used addition and subtraction skills to solve problems involving money and even tried our hand at working out simple budget plans.

All you have to do is look at the two PowerPoints and then have a go at working your way through the activity sheets.  (Don't forget!  The answers are included, so don't look at them before you've answered the questions!)

Remember, you don't have to print off the sheets - you can just work out the answers and write them down on paper.

Science

This week, we looked at habitats and micro habitats.  A habitat is an area where creatures live, for example, a garden.  But, within that habitat, there are smaller habitats, or micro habitats, like the lawn, a pond, a tree, under some rocks or in the soil.

Take a look at the example of a wetland area below - this is a place where there is water and land

.

 

Now, take a look at the file below, which has lots of information about the creatures you might find in a wetland area.

Can you work out where the creatures would live within the wetland? 

If you have a printer, you could print out the pictures and make them into fact files.  You could then print out a second set, of smaller pictures, and see if you can decide where they would live in the wetland.  You could stick them on the picture, or around the picture and draw arrows to show where they would live.

If you don't have a printer, don't worry.  You could make your own information book about the creatures that live in the wetlands and where, exactly, you would find them.

 

Don't forget to send us in some photos of your amazing work!  work@millhillandwoodcroft.co.uk 

Creative Activity

 

Your Creative activity this week links with last week's Friday Challenge and this week's English work.  Can you draw an imaginary world inside a jar?  (You can use the template of the empty jar in the English section, or draw your own one completely).

If you could create a world, what would it have?  Waterfalls?  Rainbows?  Snow?  Volcanoes?  You can be as creative as you like and don't forget to send in a picture of your amazing world...

 

Outdoor Learning

 

It's great that we're able to get out more, so here's an activity that needs you to go outside.  You can do it in your garden, or in the park - as long as you are outside, it doesn't matter!

You have two scavenger hunts to complete, but they are not all about collecting actual objects.  Although you may have to pick up some items, they also need you to use your sense of hearing and smell.  How good are those senses, I wonder?...

 

 

Music

 

Your musical task this week is simply to follow and join in with the Singing Assembly, the link for which is below.  We did this one in class and really enjoyed it, so we hope you enjoy it, too!
