Week Beginning 18th May
Maths and Numeracy
Before we left school, we did a lot of work on measuring. Use a ruler or tape measure to measure the items in your bedroom – How long is your bed? How high/long is your wall? How wide is the floor? How high are your windows? What about a book? A TV? A wardrobe? Make a list of at least 10 different things that you have measured. (You could choose another room too) Record in cm and in m if you can e.g. window = 95cm = 0.95m
Choose 5 different places that you would like to visit in the world, once we can travel again!! Can you record how far away they are? Can you research the quickest route? Can you record in miles and km? E.g. London = 166 miles = 267 km
Language, Literacy and Communication
Oracy: Make an advert for your holiday destination. Think about how advertising companies persuade people to choose their product. You could film this or just record your voice. Share it on our google classroom if you can or email it to me!
Catch up on Giglets – I sent you all a message on there so send me a reply. Keep reading as much as you can.
Writing: Design and create a holiday leaflet about your favourite holiday location. This could be ‘Bluestone’, the caravan site, Barbados or Porthcawl! Remember to be persuasive and make your leaflet eye-catching!
Health and Wellbeing
Put on some calm ocean/forest sounds/music. Search different types in YouTube and choose your favourite.
Lie down somewhere quiet and listen to the sounds. Imagine being on the beach/in the forest… Who is there? What other sounds can you hear?? Let your imagination take you there. Take in deep breaths and relax– encourage your family to do it too. This is great stress buster and relaxation tool. Try it for ten minutes everyday.
Create a piece of art work that represents your favourite holiday – this could be a beach holiday, a forest holiday, a camping holiday etc. You could make a model, paint a picture or sketch your favourite place.
You take yourself away on holiday by using a tent/creating a den outside!
Science and Technology
In order to get on holiday abroad, very often you have to fly by aeroplane.
Research how planes fly – how does a plane fly (we looked at this briefly)?
Design and make your own paper aeroplane… Find the best design to make it fly the furthest. How far can you get it to fly? Can you improve it? Measure how far it goes. Can you compete against others in your family?
Find out about how travel has changed throughout history –What was the first ever car that was made? Bicycle? Trains? Aeroplanes?
Do a mini project about different modes of transport and when they were first invented/created etc.
