Week 12- commencing 29th June

Monday 29th June

Can you remember what a carnivore, herbivore and omnivore is? Take a look at the Powerpoint below to remind yourself. Then have a go at the activity where you have to sort the different animals into the Venn diagram. Once you are done, check your answers using the answer sheet. 

Don't worry if you can't print the worksheet off- you can draw your own Venn diagram into your exercise book and then write each animal's name into the correct part of the diagram. 

Tuesday 30th June

Rainforests are one of the most important habitats on Earth- they cover only 6% of the surface of the Earth but they are home to half of the animal and plant species on the planet!

For today's task you are going to create a rainforest in a box. To start with you will need a box- this could be a shoe box, a cardboard box, a cereal box- any type of box that you have got lying around your house! Then take a look at the document below which will explain how to create your rainforest in a box. Don't worry if you don't have all the materials that it says in the document, like tissue paper, paint or PVA glue. These are just suggestions of what you can use in your model rainforest. Use whatever you have got lying around the house and of course use some twigs and leaves that you might collect from your garden or whilst out on a walk.

Wednesday 1st July

Should children have to wear school uniforms? Some children like to wear school uniform while some children would prefer to wear their own clothes to school each day. For today's task, we would like you to think of reasons for and against children wearing school uniform. Copy and complete the table below into your exercise book with your thoughts and ideas. There is one reason for and against in the table already to get you started. 

For children wearing school uniform Against children wearing school uniform
  • School uniforms allow members of the public to know which school you come from. For example, when on school trips, it's easy for teachers to know where you are when you are in school uniform, and if you got lost, a member of the public would know which school you are with.
  • School uniforms can cost a lot of money. 

Once you have thought of reasons for and against children wearing school uniforms, choose which side you are on- are you for or against? Then, with one or more members of your household, have a debate over whether children should have to wear school uniforms. 

Thursday 2nd July

Things are very different in life now compared to what they were like three months ago when the country was just going into lockdown. For today's task, we would like you to write a letter to a three month younger version of yourself, who is just as the start of the lockdown, explaining what lockdown is going to be like for you. Think of the following things to include in your letter:

  • What rules and measures have been put in place? What does the 'new normal' look like? For example, we have to stay 2 metres apart from each other. 
  • What advice would you give to your younger self to help you cope with being in lockdown?
  • What are the good things to come out of lockdown? For example, it could be that you have been able to spend more time with your family because you aren't in school everyday.

In your letter, you can talk about what life was like when the country was in the middle of lockdown, as well as what life is like now that restrictions are starting to ease and we are gradually coming out of lockdown. 

Friday 3rd July

Using items around your house or in your garden, can you make a den? What will you then do in your den? How many people will be able to fit in it?  Have a look at the document below, which might give you some inspiration of how to make your den.
