Activities for Week Beginning 30/03/20

Writing

This half term, we have been reading 'The Last Wild'. Piers Torday, author of ‘The Last Wild’, is reading a chapter of his book on Instagram Live every weekday at 14:30. Tune in daily to find out what happens next!

In class we looked at great examples of non-chronological reports and we wrote one together about whales. This week, choose an animal from 'The Last Wild' (stag, cockroach, wolf) and write a non-chronological report about it.

Day 1: Decide which animal you are going to write about and write a list of questions that you want to find out.

Day 2: Research the answers to your questions.

Day 3: Sort the facts you have collected into sections and give each section a sub-heading. These will be your paragraphs. You could use sub-headings such as: diet, habitat etc

Day 4: Write each paragraph making sure you only include relevant information under each heading.

Day 5: Publish! You could create a poster, leaflet, Adobe Spark or Powerpoint.

Email us your finished reports and we'll share our favourites.

Geography

Last half term we studied volcanoes. Create an eye-catching poster about volcanoes that includes the following: 

  • The names of some famous volcanoes and some information about where they are located and why they are so well-known (try to use geographical vocabulary.)
  • Information about the different types of volcanoes (you could include some labelled diagrams.)
  • A paragraph that describes the primary and secondary effects of an eruption and how these impact on the people who live nearby.

We will share our favourites with the whole year group on Seesaw.

French

We have recently been learning how to write about our town. We learnt the names of some different shops as well as some sentence structures. Use the example below to practise speaking about Emsworth. Once you are feeling confident, why don’t you upload a video of yourself speaking in French to Seesaw. We would love to see how you are getting on.
