This week’s science is all about a healthy diet. I have attached a sheet for you to fill in, so crank up the internet and see what you can find. Please remember these are recommended daily amounts for an average person/child and does not take into account the amount of physical activity.
The centre of the computing world is in ‘Silicone Valley’ but where is it? Why did it become famous? It would be really good if you could produce a fact sheet of facts about Silicone Vally and send them to me.
This work is all about how Sikh people remember a story from the life of the Tenth Guru, who is called Guru Govind Singh, lived over 300 years ago in India. The story is remembered at the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi. There are nearly half a million Sikh people in the UK today and millions more in India and other parts of the world.
As a school, every class will be looking at the same resource called ‘The Big Idea Weekly Challenge’. Details of the challenges can be found on the school website.
