Practise your spellings daily using one of the activities from our school's spelling approach:

Science: 

Week 2 of our two-week project:

 

Two-week project: We are going to be looking at the life of Sir David Attenborough. He is a wildlife film-maker and naturalist, which means he is a scientist who studies animals and their behaviour. 

Go through the PowerPoint and complete the activities stage by stage (answers included). The end result is completing a wildlife documentary just like one of Sir David’s. You do not need to record yourself if you don’t have the electronic means to, you could simply write the script for one of his shows. Send in your results, I would love to see what you create!
