Year 6 Home Learning 17.1.19

Due in on Monday 28th January 2019.

To follow on from our introductions to habitats and adaptation, your Home Learning over the next 2 weeks is to choose one of the following tasks:-

  1. Select one of the different types of habitat we have started to learn about and research it in detail. This could be either a land or water habitat. Include information about some of the plants and animals that can be found there.
  2. Choose an animal and research how the species has evolved over time, adapting to survive in its habitat. Include information about predators, feeding, appearance, etc.

You should include pictures (photos or drawings) and writing.  Think carefully about what you have learnt about the different types of explanation texts in your English lessons, ensuring that you are providing information for your reader in an engaging way.

The format in which you choose to present your research is your choice.  It could be:

  • a book
  • a leaflet
  • a large scale poster
  • a painting with fact boxes surrounding the artwork
  • a 3D model with written information to accompany it
  • a PowerPoint presentation

We will be displaying your research in our classrooms and in shared areas around the school, so please make sure this is your best work.  Enjoy!


Year 6 Topic Launch – The Bug Man comes to Edmund Waller

We were thrilled to launch our new topic, The Cycle of Life, by welcoming Andy to our school. He explained how various animals have adapted to their environment over time, introducing us to Darwin’s theory of evolution.

We can’t wait to find out more on our educational visit to the Natural History Museum on Friday!
