Week Commencing 11.05.20
I hope you enjoyed last week’s work and are all safe and well.
If anyone completes the Aquafresh oral health writing competition, please could you send me a copy as I would love to see them.
This week the spellings are:
Year 4 – Statutory Words
Year 5 – Statutory Words
Topic – Modern Farming
Read the modern farming information sheet (below). Can you explain some of the types and consequences of modern farming practices? Using a set of modern farming sorting cards (below), read, discuss and sort the cards into two groups: positive impact or negative impact. If someone else at home wants to do it as well, you could do this each and compare your decisions. Discuss and reflect on your findings. Which modern farming practices do you consider beneficial, with the positive effects outweighing the negative? For an extra challenge you could choose a card and research the aspect further to develop a fact file.
Topic – Climate Zones
Look at the climate zones map (below). Use the key to examine the map and the data provided to discuss the features of each climate zone. Watch the BBC Bitesize climate zones video https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zr7hyrd.
Review the information presented, including any discrepancies, and ask any questions to clarify learning points. Use the information gathered to complete the climate zones question sheet (below). Share your findings on the topic.
Art/DT – Botanical sketches
Make observational drawings of plants, fruits, vegetables, leaves, flowers, seeds and bulbs using coloured and soft writing pencils. Look at a selection of botanical drawings for inspiration (below) and explore how the artist captures the plant’s form.
Use whatever resources you have to complete this: pencils, charcoal, pastels or paints, as well as microscopes and hand lenses for studying tiny details. If possible (and with adult supervision) you could cut into the fruits and vegetables to create interesting compositions.
RE – Is peace more valuable than money?
Exploring one value that Christians and Humanists share
If you do this, I would love to see them and post them on the school website for us all to share.
Peace lovers, or peace makers?
