DESIGN AN ANIMAL!
We have been learning about the way in which animals have evolved through natural selection so that they are well suited their habitat.
Do you think ‘mother nature’ has got it right?! What if you could bring to life an animal that you believe is the best suited for the environment in which it can be found?
This week, your task is to design an animal that you think is perfectly suited to an environment of your choice. You can choose from:
- the Arctic
- a rainforest habitat
- a coral reef habitat
- a desert habitat
- a mountain habitat
- a coastal habitat
You should present your animal using images and annotations, describing the physical features of the animal and the way in which it’s adapted to suit its habitat.
Due: Tuesday 27th March
Apologies for the confusion with last week’s home learning. As I think this is a really exciting activity, I thought I’d reset it!
This week, you need to select your favourite or most interesting fairy tale and retell it. How you retell it is up to you: a simple retelling, a retelling in a different setting or time, a written story, a poem, a comic strip…be as creative as possible.
I look forward to compiling all our retellings into a class book to share with future Year 4s.
Over the half term break, create a presentation in the style of your choice (biography, diary entry, comic strip, portraits using symbolism, etc) about the Tudor monarch of your choice.
Which of the monarchs we have studied did you find most fascinating?
Don’t forget to access Bug Club, Mathletics and Languagenut over the half term to help continue the great progress everyone has been making over the half term.
This week’s home learning is to research you family tree, just as we did with the Tudors this week. How far can you go back? Can anyone beat me with 4 generations of Fosters?
Remember, you are expected to have your home reading record signed twice every week. This can be either be based on your Guided Reading text or a book of your own choice and could involve reading the text, summarising the main events from your book so far or discussing an element that you find particularly interesting or didn’t quite understand with someone else. Remember to note down any vocabulary which you found challenging or inspiring in your Reading Record so you can try and use it in your writing next week.
Mathletics has activities based on the addition and subtraction of whole numbers which we have been learning about in our maths lesson. Use your personal log in details to help extend your learning further.
Next week, we will be looking at multiplication. Which times table are you currently working on? What strategies are you using to share with the rest of your class?
