Week Commencing 15.06.20
Thank you for your emails this week. I have enjoyed reading them and finding out how your home learning has been going. I am glad you are so enthusiastic and enjoying our new topic ‘Blue Abyss’.
Please practise the new spellings during the week and have a spelling test on Friday to see if you can remember them. It is also important to revise previous spellings and the Year 3/4 statutory spelling list. There will also be 5 Purple Mash activities to do during the week set as 2Do’s on the Purple Mash website.
Please use the Birch email to contact me if you have any queries or questions. Enjoy your learning and make the most of being outdoors in the sunshine!

‘Duty’ in Hinduism. Design a picture to represent each duty. Finish sentences ‘This duty would help me because….’

Moksha ppt (slides 12-16)
Look at 2-D and 3-D artworks of a range of real and imaginary deep sea creatures (google images). Sketch out different options and decide which creature they would like to model in clay, plasticene, play dough or whatever materials are available at home. Use a variety of tools to create their sculpture and add fine details.
Watch clips from the BBC’s Blue Planet series (i player or youtube clips) about creatures of the deep. As they watch, make notes on how creatures have adapted for survival in this extreme environment. Select an adaptation from their observations and find out more. Decide how to present their information, making sure that it is clear and easy to understand.
Note: Animals from the deep ocean are often regarded as monsters due to their weird and wonderful features. Adaptations include blindness or exceptionally large eyes, excellent sense of smell to detect food and a mate, unusual size (huge or tiny), bioluminescence to light their way, lure prey or a mate, or hinged jaws with abnormally large teeth to eat large prey.(see cornerstones links)
