World Ocean Day

World Ocean Day 1
  • As it is World Ocean Day on Monday 8th June 2020, some of the work this week will be based related to this topic and will cover Science, Geography and English.  It will also raise awareness about protecting and conserving our environment.

 

  • For Maths this week, I think it is a good time to revise our basic calculation skills, ensuring accuracy.  You will need to write the calculations out in full correctly and check your answers carefully.  If you can show me how you got on, that would be great!  Email me evidence your work to the homework email address.  There are quite a lot of questions in the Maths packs, so please do not do more than 45 minutes on each one.  If however your child wants to continue, that’s completely up to you.

Monday

Today, I would like you to complete up to 45 mins of the pack on Addition and Subtraction. 

(The answers are included at the back, so be careful Parents/Carers!)

 

English: 

Today, I would like you to look at the document entitled ’16 reasons to love the Ocean’.   After reading it, I would like you to research an animal from the ocean and make a leaflet about it. 

Today’s task is to choose the animal, which lives in the ocean, and research and make notes on it.  You can use the attached leaflet on Dolphins for help and guidance.

English: 

Today, I would like you to plan out your leaflet, ensuring that you have at least four sides of written information and images. 

There is a template of a leaflet which you can use which I have added below.

Once again, you can use the ‘Dolphin Leaflet’ to plan out which information will go where and how you want to produce your leaflet.  You may wish to complete it using a computer or hand write it.

English: 

Please finish your leaflet today.  Add any images and make your leaflet presentable for your audience.  

When you have finished your leaflet, try the ‘Leaflet Quiz PowerPoint’. 

Is there anything you have missed from your leaflet?  Can you add to it?  Can you improve it?

Friday:

 

Maths: 

If you have any unfinished questions from the packs of work this week, you can complete them today.  As you have worked so hard on arithmetic this week, you can choose Maths activities from Purple Mash today.  Please save them to show me which activities you chose.

 

English: 

As it was World Ocean Day at the beginning of the week, look at the web page link:  https://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/why-care-about-ocean.html

Try putting this information into a poster to show how we can care about the ocean. 

To help, I have attached a poster which you can use for inspiration.  Are there any other things, which have not been mentioned, which could help to protect and conserve our oceans?  Add them too. 

Think about making your posters attractive, appealing and ensure that they include a balance of information for display purposes.

Spellings:

 

Please continue practising your spellings and complete the word search.

Science:

 

As part of World Ocean Day, I would like you to research people who have explored the oceans.  You may wish to use the link to help:

https://www.ducksters.com/biography/explorers/ Word of warning:  not all of them have explored the Oceans, so choose carefully!! 

Choose two explorers and record information which shows how their individual explorations were very different from one another.  This could be due to them exploring at different times, the ships they travelled in or the reasons for the explorations.

Topic:

 

To follow on from your work on World Ocean Day, read the ‘Layers of The Ocean’ reading comprehension and answer the questions.  

Geography Topic - World Ocean Day:

 

Look at the PowerPoint: ‘Layers of the Ocean Information PowerPoint’. 

Then complete the activity sheet to label and identify the layers of the ocean. 

PSHE Well-being Activities:

 

Remember to think about yourselves in this challenging time and to enjoy what you do actually have.  Don't waste time thinking about what you haven't got.

Try some of these activities together as a family and send in what you have produced.

FRENCH:

 

Remember you can register for FREE to learn a new language on Duo Lingo.  It has a range of simple activities and you can hear, read and see and say new words at your own speed. 

Follow: https://www.duolingo.com/learn and let me know how you get on and which language you have chosen.  The idea is that you use the website/App on a daily basis to build up your language skills.  If you have already started learning a language on Duo Lingo, you can add another language too!
