Geography Lesson 6 – Making a map (Week beginning 6.7.20)
This week, if you feel comfortable to do so, we would like you to go and take a walk around your local park drawing a map of its layout and what you can see using a key for your drawings. Before going out and drawing the map, have a look at some examples using the ordnance survey maps website - https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/.
If you don't feel ready to go to the park you can think about what the park looks like or use google maps to look and try and give it a go!
Science: This week we will be looking at why animals live in the places that they do. We will learn about how animals adapt and change to live in their habitats and how the habitats provide everything that they need to survive. There are some videos below to help you understand what habitats are suitable for different animals, and how their bodies help them in their habitat. There are lots of learn screens on Education City to help you understand and activities on there and Purple Mash.
There are also some videos all about minibeasts, to help you understand what they are and where you may find them. There are many of these on YouTube just search for Minibeast Adventures with Jess.
Geography: This week we will be recapping our knowledge all about the United Kingdom - starting with England, watch the video below about England and read the PowerPoint to learn lots of facts. After use the Learn Screen on Education City, before completing a fact file on Purple Mash or on paper all about what you know about England.

This week we will be looking at how a tadpole grows into a frog and its life cycle. Watch the videos and look at the PowerPoint below to learn about the different stages of its life. Once you have learnt all about it, there are some activities on Purple Mash and Education City for you to complete.
This week we will be looking at how a caterpillar grows into a butterfly and its life cycle. Watch the videos and look at the PowerPoint (below) to learn about the different stages of its life. Miss Wallbank has been growing butterflies at home with her children so she has very kindly sent us some pictures to show us the different stages. Once you have learnt all about the life cycle, there are some activities on Purple Mash and Education City for you to complete.
1. The box with the butterfly net and pot with caterpillar (larva) eggs were delivered.
2 The butterfly net was set up and the box was unpacked..
3. The caterpillars start to grow and get their food from the bottom of the pot.
4. The caterpillars begin to grow and get bigger and bigger,.
5. The caterpillars find a safe place at the top to start to build their cocoon (the pupa stage)
6. The caterpillar makes a hard shell around itself known as the pupa, so that it can complete its metamorphosis (change) into a butterfly.
Science Lesson 2 - Living, Dead or Never Been Alive (Week beginning 27.4.20)
This week we will be looking at how you can tell if something is living, dead or never been alive and the things that all living things do. Watch the videos and look at the PowerPoint below to learn what all living things do and what dead things used to do. Then you can try and look around your garden, or your house, and make a list of all the things that you can see that are living, dead, or never been alive in your homework book or on a separate piece of paper. Then there are some activities on Purple Mash and Education City for you to complete.
Science Lesson 1: How do animals change as they grow. (Week beginning 20.4.20)
This week we will be starting our new Science on Animals (including humans). We will start the topic by looking at how animals grow and change as they get older. At the beginning of the school year we thought about how humans change, but we would like you to think about animals. Do they grow and change in the same way? How are they similar? How are they different? Look at the YouTube videos below then complete the tasks on Education CIty and Purple Mash.
