Curriculum

Geography Lesson 1 (22/02/21)

LI: To be able to identify where our food comes from.

  • Look through your cupboard at home an pick out some of the items that you’d have for a meal.
  • Write them in a list.
  • Now it is time to figure out where your food comes from. Look at the packaging for information on the origin of the food.

Science Lesson 1 (23/02/21)

LI: To be able to categorise living and non-living things.

  • We have previously studied the different ways that we can categorise a group of things: such as mammals, birds, fish, crustaceans and so on. Today you will need to sort the images on your sheet into living or non-living fossils.
  • A living fossil is a life form that has survived with little change for a large period of time and which are still around today!
  • A not living fossil is a life form which has not changed for a large period of time but is not around today.
  • You should then do some research of your own to add to the two categories, find at least two examples for both.
  • Finally, are we as humans living fossils? Explain your answer using the definition above to help you.

Geography Lesson 2 (24/02/21)

LI: To be able to research and create a Fairtrade poster

  • Use the internet to research and answer the three questions.
  • Pick an item from the third question, make sure you have researched this in detail.
