Well done on completing our topic on Seaside Rescue!
We are now going to have a science week! You know how much I love science and experimenting!
Let me know which lessons you enjoy the most and send me any photos of work you have completed.
Today, you are going to learn more about your senses. There are 5 of them - can you name them before you go to the BBC Bitesize lesson? Knowing your senses will help you when you write descriptively - if you include detail about what you characters can smell, taste, hear and feel (not just what they can see) you will add more interest for your reader!
Nothing can change shape without forces. Today, you are going to learn about squashing, bending, twisting and stretching. You will need a sock - maybe there's an odd sock in your drawer or wash basket?
When you've finished the lesson on BBC Bitesize, can you make a sock puppet? I know Oscar has been learning how to sew his beaver badges on his shirt - can you sew buttons on for eyes?
We learned in our seaside rescue topic about coastal and ocean habitats. Can you name other types of habitat? When you have watched all the videos, you don't need to complete the activities at the bottom of the lesson. Instead, I want you to create a diorama of one of the habitats - a shoebox is perfect for this! Here are some examples:
Can you name all the different animal groups? Each animal can be classified into a group by their features. For example, mammals are warm-blooded, have hair/fur and give birth to live young.
Learn about the different animal groups in the BBC Bitesize lesson.
Instead of completing the activities at the end of the lesson, I want you to go outside (maybe go for a walk to a pond or through the woods) and try to find as many animals from each group as possible. Can you identify them by their correct name? If you can find some reptiles, you'll be an awesome animal spotter! (Frances, you can not include your corn snake at home!)
Our final activity draws upon our maths work this week on shape and includes engineering! You are going to learn more about the science and art of packaging. Work through the lesson and for the activities, try to find as many different shapes of packaging as possible. There will be one 3D shape that is more common than others. Can you explain why this is?
If you complete the net of a 3D shape, here is another website will some fun nets for you to produce!
