Science:

 

The sun is shining, the flowers are in bloom and the insects are working flat out. In the space of two short days, I've seen a slow worm (looks like a snake), three stunning caterpillars, countless tadpoles and a beautiful baby frog. It seems fitting therefore that we learn about the man responsible for bringing some order to the naming of these living organisms - Carl Linnaeus.

 

This week, we would like you to research Carl Linnaeus and then choose to present your findings in one of the ways listed below:

 

1. A poster detailing his work and findings

2. A quiz (with answers) showcasing Linnaeus' work

3. A biography or an autobiography of Linnaeus life and work

4. A PowerPoint presentation about Linnaeus

 

You may have access to an iPad etc and wish to present your findings using an APP such as YAKIT. Likewise, if you have your own ideas on how to showcase your knowledge of Carl Linnaeus, then please feel free to use them instead. 

 

Here is a good starting point for your research:

Have fun conducting your research and I look forward to seeing what you produce!

Home Learning 4.5.20 - Here are some suggested learning activities for you to do this week

Handwriting booklet to show joined letter formation

As I boldly recall what was to be our final science lesson together, we were learning about the characteristics of a living organism. MRS GREN proved to be a hit in helping us remember what these characteristics are - I'd bet that you can remember some, if not all of them. If you need reminding, a simple google search will prove useful. Moving forward, Mrs Coker, Mr McDonald and I would like to continue with our 'Living Things and their Habitats' topic. Please find the link below to this unit of work.

 

There are 6 lessons in this unit, so feel free to complete them in any time frame you see fit. I know some children would choose to do them all in a single week while others may want to do one lesson per week as we would in school. Enjoy the resources and I look forward to seeing your amazing work on the school blog!

Don't forget there are lots of BBC Bitesize lessons that you can access which will definitely be very interesting and informative I'm sure!

Mr Bell, Mr McDonald and I know it is sometimes tricky to keep motivated working from home. What helps us is sticking to a timetable as it keeps us structured and in a routine. Here is a possible timetable you might like to stick to. If it doesn't suit, why not start the week by making your own?

A great website to listen to a whole heap of stories

Below are further home learning projects that you can do, if you have time.

Why not try a daily maths lesson online? The White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five brand new maths lessons each week for each year group from Years 1-8. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully. The objectives covered would be the ones we would cover if school was open so it is a great way to keep up to date with your maths learning.
