Curriculum

Science Lesson 1 (01/03/21)

LI: To be able to identify missing transitional forms

  • A transitional form is a stage in-between what we have now and an ancestor. Some of these have been found as fossils whilst others are yet to be discovered.
  • This means that artists are needed to guess what the transitional form would look like based on its ancestor and what it looks like today!
  • Can you have a go at drawing the missing fossil! Look at what both animals/plants have in the images and create a creature that has some but not all of their features.

SPaG Lesson 1 (02/03/21)

LI: To be able to identify synonyms and antonyms 

  • A synonym is another word for the example. A synonym for tired could be exhausted or sleepy.
  • An antonym is a word with an opposite meaning from the example. So the antonym for tired could be awake.
  • Go through the SPaG challenge sheet.

Geography Lesson 1 (03/03/21)

LI: To be able to make a model riverbed

  • Last half term, we studied the geographical feature of rivers, looking in particular at their different parts, reasons for their meandering and how mankind attempts to affect them.
  • Today, your task is to create your own riverbed to study what happens on the floor of a river as it progresses towards a larger body of water.
  • Follow the instructions on the poster using the suggested equipment to complete your riverbed model.
  • Send a photo of your completed riverbed in a bottle on the Teams site.

Science Lesson 2 (04/03/21)

LI: To be able to determine an animal’s characteristics

  • In school we have studied the differences between animals and how we can categorise them based on appearance, structure, nutrition and more!
  • Today, you are going to look more closely at the difference between different animal groupings.
  • Use your ICT skills to research the answers to the table and complete the table as you go along. You will begin to notice some clear differences between the animal types.

ICT Lesson 1 (05/03/21)

LI: To research and design an advertisement for a game

  • Your ICT task today is to study the use of advertisements and websites in the wider world to increase the responsiveness to a product. Our focus is on games.
  • Research some game adverts (ensuring they are appropriate to your age). How is the game portrayed, what language is used, what sort of sounds are in the advertisement?
  • Plan your own advertisement to a game of your choice (again, age appropriate).
  • Turn over to the next side, this time you will be asked to research the use of websites as a means of raising awareness and giving information about a product.
