'Is anyone responsible for the changes to the world?'
Please spend time over the term discussing this question together and take the time to reflect on the changes that you come across as we journey through these unusual times. You can share your child's ideas by emailing our class email: firstname.lastname@example.org

We recommend 30 minutes a day of reading. Remember you can break this up into chunks.
In Maths, we continue our work linked to Fractions. We will be looking at mixed numbers and improper fractions. You will be able to convert both ways by the end of the week!
For spelling, use the Look, say, cover, write and check method to start with then use the attached documents to practise over the week. The exercises are all on one page, but you can do one each day.
Read the scenarios based around Joshua. Complete the mind map about ways Joshua saved others. Think about things that you love or believe in. What would you give up? What you be laughed at for? What would you lose friends for? Why don't you draw make notes for this on the sheet.
To explain how some diseases can be prevented by vaccinations and immunizations. Read the Power Point about vaccines. Answer the statistic questions about vaccinations and then design their poster/symbols to explain.
Extension – Choose one of the innovators and create an information poster about their contributions.
For Geography this week, we are focusing on the physical geography in North American countries. Read through the power point (it has also been added as a PDF) to find out all about the physical geographical features in Mexico. Then create your own fact file about a different North American country, researching the same areas as the power point example: research the climate, mountains, volcanoes... Add any other fascinating facts you find!
It is up to you to decide how you wish to present your facts. You may choose to create a power point, like the example provided; or you could record yourself talking while explaining your facts and have images too; or you could create a paper fact file.
Whichever you decide , please send these to your teacher (email or Tweet). We would love to see them and add them to the slideshow at the bottom of this page so everyone can see your work!
We know about some naturalists through our work during Speech Week (Can you remember them? Name the two famous figures!). This week, we study another well-known figure in the naturalist world, Jane Goodall. She is famous for her work with chimpanzees and it is thanks to her we know that these intelligent creatures can make and use tools. Stripping sticks and using them to poke termites (tasty food for chimps!) out from their holes is an example of what she observed during her work. Read the power point or PDF and complete the task. Then tell us, would you love to be a naturalist when you grow up?
Match up the hobbies from English to French. Watch the video to help you.
