Submitting your work:  Scrapbook pages usually take up a double-page-spread in our books.  You can do this in your Home Learning Book, take a photo and send it to your teacher.  Alternatively, you could create a digital scrapbook page.  It would be lovely to create a main page on PowerPoint which has hyperlinks to other slides with more information.  We will demonstrate how to do this at the end of our maths lesson today.

 

 

Tuesday 2nd February

LO:      To understand what a habitat is and identify different types

 

Task: 

Find out what a habitat is and write it in the middle of your page.  Around the explanation find out as many different types of habitat as you can and create a mind map around your explanation.  Please make this page bright and colourful and add some small pictures.

 

Submitting your work:  This work can be produced on a Word document (text boxes will be good for this) or can be written in your Home Learning Book. Please email your work to your teacher.

Monday 1st February

 

Welsh

 

Task: 

*Fingers crossed the PowerPoint should work better this week as it doesn’t rely on sound!

Have a look at the PowerPoint below.  Revise the terms for ‘I like…’, ‘I dislike…’, ‘I love…’ and ‘I hate…’. Then copy the table (either on to Word or draw it in your Home Learning Book) and complete it for the different titles about yourself.  There is a vocab sheet on the last slide of the PowerPoint.

 

Submitting your work:  The table can be copied and pasted into a Word document or can be drawn in your Home Learning Book. Please email your work to your teacher.

Week Beginning: 25th January 2021

 

 

Thursday 28th & Friday 29th January

 

Task: 

Following on from this weeks work, we would like you to look carefully at your favourite animal’s habitat. Research it on the internet and look at pictures.

 

Create a 3D model of the habitat that your favourite animal would naturally live in.  To do this you may use junk modelling items that you find at home (ask for permission first) that are painted, decorated or have printed images stuck on or other types of media such as plasticine or lego. Be as creative as you can.

 

Write a few sentences telling us how you have made your model and what sort of things you have included and why.  Think about why this animal is well-suited to this environment Eg think about food sources, camouflaging colours etc.

 

This activity will take quite some time so we have allowed two topic sessions for this.

 

I’ve included a few images below to help inspire you.

 

Submitting your work:  Take a photo of your model and send it to your teacher.

Wednesday 27th January

 

Task: 

Following on from your sketch of your favourite animal yesterday, I would like you to create a factfile about your animal.  It is up to you if you want to do this on Word or PowerPoint or write it into your Home Learning Book.  You can decide how to set it out but it must include:

-A title

-Photos / Images

-Headings (Eg appearance, breeds, food, natural habitat, behaviours, fun facts etc)

 

Try to make your fact file as interesting and as bright and colourful as possible.

 

Submitting your work:  Please email your work to your teacher

Tuesday 26th January

Task:  Draw a detailed sketch of your favourite animal.

 

I strongly suggest that you YouTube how to sketch your chosen animal to watch a tutorial about detailed animal sketching.

 

By detailed, I mean that I would like your drawing to be a realistic (not cartoon style) image where I am able to see their features and be able to see the texture of their skin/fur/feathers.  If you are drawing a detailed sketch then it will take you a long time. You will need a loose grip on your pencil and draw light lines in order to build up your image.

This video gives you lots of tips but it is quite long so skip to the bits that are useful:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mA77noU56_8

 

Your sketch should be about A4 size so make sure that it is nice and big on your page.

 

Submitting your work:  Take a photo of your work and send it to

Wednesday 13th January

 

LO: Record your ideas about a dystopia

 

Explanation:      Just as you looked at utopia in detail last week, now we will look at dystopia.  Remember that a dystopia is a hellish place where people would hate to live.  It would look physically unattractive but also the way of life would not be very nice at all.

 

Task:  Just as you did last week, complete each of the boxes by using bullet points to record your ideas.  Remember that you can type straight on to the sheet, print it out or just write the headings and your bullet points into your Home Learning Books.

Task:  Using all of your knowledge from your research and thinking last week, create an acrostic poem about utopia.  Decorate your page with mages that show what your utopia would be like (these can be digital images).  I’ve attached an example of an acrostic poem so that you remember how they are set out, using each letter of the word to start a sentence.

 

Submitting your work:  You could type your poem on Word and email it to your teacher or hand write it on paper or in your Home Learning Book then photograph it and email it to your teacher.

 

 

 

 

Week Beginning:  4th January 2021

Friday 8th January

 

Task: Create a piece of art showing your utopia.  You may wish to draw or paint or create a model using clay or lego.  Be as imaginative as you want.  Don’t just show me your ideal home but your ideal local area. Include as much detail as you can.  Be prepared to talk about your art work when you return to school.

Please photograph your art work and email it to your class teacher.

 

 

Thursday 7th January

 

Task:  Continue with the ‘Utopia – Ideas Sheet’ from yesterday.  Complete the remaining 5 boxes with your ideas.

 

Remember that you are thinking about a perfect world where people would be happy to live but it also needs to be practical and realistic Eg everybody couldn’t have their own mansion with a swimming pool because there wouldn’t be enough space.

 

Submitting your work:  Take a photo of your completed work and email it to your teacher.

 

 

 

Wednesday 6th January

 

Think:   What would it be like to live in an ideal world where everyone has everything they want and need and are happy?

Where would you live? Would it be in the city or the countryside?  Near the beach? Would there be lots of space or lots of buildings close together?

What would buildings, shops, schools etc look like?

How would you travel around?

What would the weather be like?

How would people get everything that they need to survive in your ideal world?

 

Task:  Complete the following 4 boxes only on the 'Utopia - Ideas Sheet' below:

  • Appearance
  • Transport
  • Jobs & Education
  • Buildings

*We will look at the other 5 boxes tomorrow

 

In school we would usually print this on to A3 paper for you to fill in the boxes.  If you can print it at home, try printing it on to 2 sheets.  If you do not have a printer write the headings on to paper or type them into Word.  Use bullet points to record your ideas. You should have 4-5 bullet points for each box / heading.

 

Remember that you are thinking about a perfect world where people would be happy to live but it also needs to be practical and realistic Eg everybody couldn’t have their own mansion with a swimming pool because there wouldn’t be enough space.

Submitting your work:  Take a photo of your work so far and email it to your teacher.

Tuesday 5th January

 

Explanation:      This term as part of our ‘Virtual World’ topic we will be looking at ‘utopia’ and ‘dystopia’.
