Pentecost Term (Week 5)



This week for Science, you are going to be learning about flowers and labelling one yourself. The first thing to do, is to follow the link and watch the video 'The anatomy of a flower'. This is video number 3 on the website. Then, I have attached a blank flower, for you to label with the different parts. You can do your own research and use the video, to help you. You can then put this onto Seesaw or email it to us. 

Pentecost Term (Week 4)



This week, for Geography, could you please create a poster about all the things you can remember about rivers. This can include the famous ones we researched, you can label a river, look at where they start and end and any interesting facts about rivers. You can post this onto Seesaw or email them to us. We can't wait to see your amazing poster creations! 

Pentecost Term (Week 3)



For this weeks Science, it would be amazing for you to have a go at this experiment. All you need is some cardboard (you could reuse this from your recycling), some tape, a bowl of water and something heavy to test how well it can float. There is a video that goes with this too. You can post your findings onto Seesaw or email them to us. 


If you do not have these resources, no need to worry! It would be great to see if you can come up with your own experiment. We can't wait to see your findings!

Pentecost Term (Week 2)



Your task for this week, is to do some research about William Conqueror. You can create a fact file, sheet with information about him, however you like. You can upload this onto Seesaw or email it to us. We can't wait to see them!


Pentecost term (Week 1) 



Can you create a leaflet about what plants need in order to survive? You can research this online, ask a friend or a family member. Remember that BBC bitesize and YouTube are great places, to watch videos about this. You can always upload the leaflets to Seesaw or send us them via email. 

Pentecost Term (Week 1)



For Geography this week, could you research some famous mountains from around the world? Then, choose one and create a fact file all about it! This may include: where it is, the name, the height, what the climate is like and are there any people/animals that live on or around the mountain. Upload them onto Seesaw or send them us by email. We are really looking forward to reading them!


Science Home Learning Activities


This website has some French lessons and resources that you could explore at home. 

Here is a Geography activity you can complete at home. Can you create your own island by adding key human and physical features? You might want to do some research to help you, think back to when we researched Jersey and the Shetland Islands.

History Activity- Lent Term

Label this Stone Age house. Think back to our learning, from last topic week. You can research houses, if this helps you.
