Good Morning Class 4 

Happy Tuesday everyone. smiley  I hope you're all ok? I am missing you all. 
 

I think we need a joke! I can't promise it's the best joke you've ever heard, but it's a joke! 

 

'What do you call a bear with no teeth?'


(Scroll to the bottom of the page for the answer. smiley)

I will be checking how you're getting on as the day goes on.

Learning project:

The focus for this week's project is 'under the sea'. 

The projects this week aim to provide opportunities for you to learn more about life in and around the sea. Learning may focus on the strange and wonderful creatures and plants that occupy our oceans, their habitats and how human beings affect this environment. 

This afternoon, you can either continue the project you began yesterday or start a new one.  smiley
 
‚óŹ Working Together to Save Our Oceans -‚Äč The ‚ÄčBBC programme Blue Planet 2‚Äč sparked ‚Äčan outcry about the health of our oceans and the huge threat caused by plastics, but lots of people around the world are working hard to help solve this problem. Have a ‚Äčread about Madison Edwards‚Äč, a 12 year old environmental activist. Can you do your bit to help preserve our oceans by keeping a ‘‚Äčplastic diary‚Äč’ recording how much single-use plastic your family uses. Write down one thing‚Äč that your family will do to use less plastic.

 ‚óŹ Speeding Through The Seas- ‚ÄčSailfish are the ‚Äčfastest fish in the ocean‚Äč. Can you be just as speedy and complete the following 5 activities as fast as possible: Star jumps, tuck jumps, press-ups, squats and lunges. Record how many repetitions of each activity you can perform in 1 minute. Can you beat your personal best? Can you record your heart rate (beats per minute) after each activity?             
 ‚óŹ Pirates: Daring Figures of History or Brutal Sea-Thieves?- ‚ÄčMany books have been written and movies made about pirates. But who were the real pirates of the past? Can you explore‚Äč these facts about real pirates from history? You could create a fact file or information report about what you have learned, including key dates and figures. Alternatively, you could create a ‘wanted’ poster for a pirate, including facts about his/her deeds and adventures.

 ‚óŹ Bioluminescence: Lighting up Our Oceans -‚Äč ‚ÄčMany sea creatures possess a fascinating light-producing ability called ‚Äčbioluminescence‚Äč. ‚ÄčSome fish dangle a lighted lure in front of their mouths to attract prey, while some squid shoot out bioluminescent liquid, instead of ink, to confuse their predators. Find out about bioluminescence‚Äč and how ‚Äčsome sea creatures rely on this‚Äč for their survival. You could then choose a sea creature which uses bioluminescence (like the anglerfish) and create a poster fact sheet about it, including what bioluminescence is and how your chosen sea creature uses it. 

 ‚óŹ Artwork to Light up Your Life‚Äč- ‚ÄčFollowing on from what you learned about bioluminescence, create a bioluminescent sea creature inspired piece of artwork. Based on the resources you have available at home, you could choose to express this as a‚Äč ‚Äčdrawing‚Äč ‚Äčor as a‚Äč ‚Äčmode‚Äčl‚Äč. ‚ÄčUse bright colours and try to be as realistic as possible.

Have a wonderful day all of you.
