Both of the children arrive at Buckingham Palace during the changing of the guards. This is something that happens daily in London and I am sure many of you may have seen this for yourself if you have every visited London.

Read some key information on the following website:

Sports Day:

I have used your continents to put you into equal teams. I have also attached a list of different activities for you to complete. You can spend as much time practicing the different exercises as you like but you can only record one official amount.

When you are ready, set the timer and record the amount of repetitions you have completed for the individual exercise on the chart. You have 30 seconds for each exercise.

Once you have completed all (or as many as you can) of the exercises write the total score at the bottom of your chart and send me a picture. I will total up each member of your team to give you a final score.

There will be a prize for the winning team!

You will have until 12pm on Thursday to get your scores to me, any scores sent after that won’t be counted.

A sporting skill
A dance
A song
A musical talent of some kind
Something funny
Juggling
Gymnastics
Anything else you wish! You choose!

English:

Read or Listen to Chapter 10 from The Boy in the Back of the Class (this is a slightly longer chapter and so will take around 20 minutes of your English time).

Ahemt tells his story to the class in this chapter of the book. Can you map out his journey using pictures and captions?

The children had lots of new questions that followed on from Ahmet’s story. Can you think of three questions you would like to ask Ahmet following on from what he told the class.

RE:

Our Christian Value for this half term would have been ‘friendship’.

Answer the following questions carefully:

What are the qualities of a good friend?

How do we make friends? Are there criteria for choosing a friend?

Why do we need friends?

How can we be/become good friends?

How do we keep our friends? What nourishes friendships?

Research and read the following bible verses – Proverbs: 17:17; 18:24; 19:6; 27:6; 27:17; 19:4; 17:9; 16:28.

What can you find out about friendship from these verses? Can you take a small selection and put them into your own words?

Monday 6th July

Lesson 1 – Measuring with a protractor (2)

English:

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.

 

 

Science:

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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!

 

  1. 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.

Watch http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/collections/p0048522%20 http://www.janegoodall.org.uk/jane-goodall

http://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/jane-goodall-retrospective

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.

  1. Choose a scientist from the above list and take some time to put together a Fact file/poster/presentation/video monologue about them.
