Lesson 1 – Measuring with a protractor (2)
If you did not get chance over the weekend, catch up on Chapter 8 of ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’.
Research based questions:
Locate Syria in an atlas or on a world map and familiarise yourself with its position compared to the UK.
If you are not sure what a pomegranate is yourself, go and have a little look at some images online.
What type of Character is mum? Write a character description using examples from the text to support your reasoning.
I have included some sentences below that might support your reasoning. Use you inference skills to develop a strong answer to this question.
‘It’s not a real Sunday paper because mum never buys them – she says you can buy a whole meal for the price of a Sunday paper these days’
‘Ok. Tell you what. Why don’t you go and get the atlas book and I will show you?’
‘I stopped, worried that mum might think it was a silly and maybe a waste of money buying food only to give it away. But she didn’t. Instead she said “I think that’s a brilliant idea”. ‘
Think about the part in the story where mum speaks to Frank in the supermarket.
Does mum give up looking for the fruit easily?
Chapter 9 & 10 will be posted later this afternoon.
- Go out into the school grounds or local woodland or park and sit and observe nature. You will need to sit comfortably and remain still and quiet. What can you see, what can you hear, and what can you smell? Quietly write notes about things you spot – move slowly as you write so as to not disturb any wildlife. (Hopefully over 10-15 minutes birds and mini-beasts should be seen and heard). Remember not everything you see and hear will be natural.
- A natural scientist, or naturalist, studies natural history, i.e. the study of plants and animals by observation rather than by experimentation. An animal behaviourist makes a scientific study of everything an animal does (from amoebae to gorillas!), so again they observe very carefully. You have just been a natural scientist and have been over the last couple of weeks!
- Some examples of naturalists or animal behaviourists are Charles Darwin, Chris Packham, David Attenborough, Alfred Russel Wallace, Steve Backshall, Steve Irwin, Jane Goodall and George McGavin.

These programmes introduce people who are not scientists to many interesting and wonderful aspects of animal and plant life. People can see things happening or visit places virtually which they are unlikely to see or visit themselves. The programmes take a long time to make – the naturalists and film crew have to be very patient.
- Choose a scientist from the above list and take some time to put together a Fact file/poster/presentation/video monologue about them.
