We have completed our Science topic on plants so we will be spending the rest of this term visiting the areas of Science that we still need to look at or need to revise.
This week we are revising our work on materials. Please find attached some revision questions to work on. In addition, you can look through the Science knowledge organiser on Materials to help you remember what we have learnt over the year.
Just for fun (this activity is optional)
You could use the links below to watch the materials song or to do activities on BBC Bitesize. Perhaps you could go on a materials hunt around your home! Can you put objects into different groups by looking at the materials they are made from?
Our topic this term is called ‘In Grandma’s Day’. In this topic we will be looking at changes within living memory.
For the next two weeks we would like to work on your very own project, thinking about changes within living memory and beyond. You need to choose a topic for your project. A few ideas are:
- Travel/Transport (You might want to choose a specific vehicle)
- Household items
You will need to research the history of this topic and how it has changed over time. You can include facts, photos, drawings or videos to show how it has changed. You may present your project in any way you wish. You could present your project as:
- A PowerPoint presentation
- A leaflet
- A poster
- A video
- A booklet
- Any other way you choose
We have included some resources below which may help you to choose your project and to get started. However, you do not need to use these.
Ruth Miskin is doing live phonics streaming daily with different sets of speed sounds. She holds sessions at 9.30/10.00/10.30 in the mornings. This follows the same format as our phonics sessions in school. The children can practise set 2 and 3 sounds.
You could practise phonics daily using the weblink listed below.
Keep an eye on the English resources section of our class webpage as we will be adding phonics resources and sounds that the children can practise.
