It is Friday and that can mean only one thing, another Friday maths challenge!

 

Click the links below. The first 5 challenges are designed for year 5 students, but why don't you challenge yourself and see how many you can complete?

Science

 

The focus of today's science lesson is on Hibernation and Migration. These are two of the fantastic survival strategies that animals use to get through the winter, or sometimes for food or breeding purposes.

 

Watch the videos below and take notes if it helps. Then, complete the cloze procedure below by reading carefully and filling in the blanks.

 

When you have completed this I want you to create a fact file about migration and hibernation. Each fact file should contain an overview of what this is, which animals do it, how they do it and why they do it. As well as the overview, each fact file should have an in depth look at an animal of your choosing. Be sure to include a diagram of your animals of choice.

 

I hope you have fun!

Art Task

In our English lessons, we seem to have a focus on traditional stories about lions. To build upon this, I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn how to draw one. Look at the videos below and pick your favourite style to try at home. You may even want to try both.

 

I look forward to seeing what you create.

History

 

In today's history lesson, you will be looking at the importance of the River Nile to the Ancient Egyptians. Watch the videos below (My apologies for the cringe worthy song) and then look through the slides contained in the PowerPoint.  You may want to take some notes while doing this.

 

When you have done this, use the worksheet to write down some of the important facts and bits of information that you have learnt. 

 

Finally, use these facts to create a poster all about the River Nile. Think carefully about what information you would like to be displayed on this poster.

You may want to split your page into different sections to help present your information clearly and neatly. Remember to include diagrams and illustrations to help bring the information to life. 

 

I look forward to seeing your final creations!
