For your English this week, you are going to be focusing on non-fiction writing. Through different stories so far, you have read about possums and wombats. These are both animals you would find in Australia. This week you are going to focus on finding out different information about them.
Here are some suggested ideas you could use for your English work this week:
Today we are going to become Zoologists and begin to learn all about wombats and all the interesting facts about them. I am going to add different links to videos and websites to help you with your discovery! You might need some help with reading the facts on the websites. Once you have finished your research, can you have a go at drawing your own wombat and labelling parts of its body. Have a look at the template to help you.
Tuesday: Have a look over some of your research again. Can you add some interesting facts you have learnt to your drawing of a wombat? Try and use some different sentence openers to make your writing more exciting.
For example: ‘Did you know…’, ‘Zoologists have discovered…’, ‘Interestingly…’ or ‘Surprisingly…’
Wednesday: Today we are going to move on to learn all about Possums! We should remember this animal from our story from last week. Let’s get our Zoologist brain on again to discover some interesting facts about this animal. You might need some help with reading the facts on the websites. Here are some things to help you…
Can you have a go at drawing your own Possum and labelling the parts of the body? Here is a video to help you draw one if you need it…
Thursday: Have a look over some of your research again. Can you add some interesting facts you have learnt to your drawing of a possum? This time, see if you can use different conjunctions in your facts.
Friday: Now you have spent the week being Zoologists, it’s time to show all the amazing things you have learnt. Have a go at creating your own fact file on either both a wombat and a possum or you can choose one. You can choose how you want to set this out, you can write a fact file in your home learning books with lots of interesting facts and pictures. You could create your own video telling us all about what you have learnt. You might want to even create an informational poster. However you decide to do this, remember to use those interesting sentence openers and conjunctions to make your facts even more interesting.
Science - Year 2
For your science work this week you are continuing to look at life cycles, last week you looked at the stages of the human life cycle. Can you remember the different stages of life that all humans go through?
In this session you are going to think about animal life cycles, you probably remember learning about the life cycle of a butterfly when you were younger and reading the hungry caterpillar story. Can you tell a grown up in your house about the life cycle of a butterfly?
There are two parts to your activity today; first we would like you to name as many animal babies and their parents as possible, you could write them down or just say them out loud. Just like humans, often the babies and adults are given different names, like kittens and cats. How many other adult and baby pairs can you think of?
For your second task, to link to the work you are doing in English this week we would like you to find out and draw the life cycle of an Australian animal, this could be a wombat, possum or any other creature you choose!
Science - Year 1
We hope you enjoyed creating your weather forecast videos last week for science! This week we are looking at how weather around the world can be different to our own. The slides below will show you how autumn weather in this country can be very different from autumn weather in other countries around the world. Once you have looked through the slides it is your turn to do some research about weather around the world. Create a gird like the one below and choose 2 different countries to compare with England. Use the internet to find out what the weather is like during the 4 seasons in these places.
Our Geography lesson this week is looking at how the famous festival of Christmas is celebrated in Australia! The slides below will tell you all about it and give you lots of information and pictures to look at. For your independent activity we want you to compare Christmas in the UK with an Australian Christmas. Here is an example of ho you might choose to set out your work:
For your art work this week you are going to be creating your own Aboriginal style dot painting of an animal. Look at the slides below to find out how to do it, you can choose any creature you like to paint using dots! We can't wait to see your work on see saw! Here is a video to inspire you to get creative! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zhsb9j6
This week in RE we are finding out about some of the stories that are written in the Jewish holy book the Torah. The slides below will tell you all about this.
