Good Morning Class 4

Morning everyone, I hope you're all feeling well this morning. It's Wednesday already! That's a reason to be cheerful!                                      
Today, it's riddle time...
'A word I know, six letters it contains, remove one letter and 12 remains, what is it?'

I will let you know the answer tomorrow. Feel free to email me if you think you've worked it out. smiley
                                         
 
These are your tasks for today. Remember, you can do the tasks in any order, and you don't have to do everything if you don't have time. yes 



PE:  

Have a look at the below link. There are lots of ideas for different PE type activities that you could do at home; give one a go!

Reading task:                                                                                                                                     
 
 
A change to the reading task, just for today! I would like you to read an account of a child who lives in the rainforest. You can find a number of options at the link below, please choose at least one to read:


https://www.rainforest-alliance.org/kids/rainforest-stories

Whilst you are reading, you should jot down what the child likes and dislikes about living in the rainforest. You will use this for your writing task later on. 



Maths task:                                                                                                                                                 
 
I have uploaded a maths question sheet for each year group today. Click on the correct one for you below:


 
-Year 5 Maths 7.docx-  

 
-Year 6 Maths 7.docx-  


You can write your answers straight into your exercise book or you can print the sheet off and fill it in. I will put the answers up tomorrow so you can see how you've got on. 
         
       

Spelling task: 
 

Today, I would like you to create a glossary of words related to rainforests. These words can be your starting point: canopy, monsoon, colony, extinct and deforestation. Feel free to add extra words too. 
You will need to provide a clear definition of each word. 



Writing task:

Using what you read during the reading task, I would like you to write a diary entry from the viewpoint of a child who lives in the rainforest. You should retell the events of a day in the rainforest as if you live there.
 
Remember that as this is a diary entry, it is informal writing, and that you should include your emotions and feelings about the day.


You can write this in your exercise books or type it on a computer. If you can, send me what you've done via email. I'd love to read them. 



Being kind...
 
I am leaving this on here as a reminder so that you don't forget to always make the effort to be kind. This could be done in a variety of ways, it could be: some kind words when they are needed; a drink or snack made for someone; tidying up; dishwasher emptying; a message to someone who might be feeling down; a hug (to someone in your household); or something else, whatever it is, it will be worth it to make someone else smile! 



Learning project:

The focus for this week's project is 'rainforests'. 

The projects this week aim to provide opportunities for you to learn more about the world's rainforests. Learning may focus on the plants, animals and insects that inhabit the rainforest, food that originates there and weather patterns. It could look at plants and animals that can be found in the garden too. 

This afternoon, you can either finish the project you started yesterday or start a new one.smiley
 
Deforestation: Destroying Animal Habitats and The Homes of Humans- ​Deforestation occurs in ​rainforests​ throughout the world. Trees are cut down on a huge scale, often to create space for grazing livestock or buildings. As part of this process, ​animal habitats and the homes of native people are often destroyed​. Can you create a poster highlighting the impact of deforestation on both humans and animals. Can you think of possible solutions to some of these challenges and include these solutions on your posters. ​

 ● Welcome to The Jungle: Let Creativity Roar!- ​Henri Rousseau was a French painter from the 19th Century who created many paintings inspired by jungles and rainforests, although he never actually visited one. Can you explore ​facts about this famous painter and create a jungle/rainforest piece of ​artwork in his style​. You could draw, paint or create a collage, depending on the resources you have available at home.              

 ● Discovering Far off Lands-
​In the 16th century, Sir Walter Raleigh ​sailed the Atlantic Ocean in search of a place called El Dorado. His expedition took him to Guyana and his search led him to discover the country’s rainforest. 400 years on, a group of children have taken on the challenge to follow in Sir Walter’s footsteps in their own expedition to Guyana. You should watch the below clip and explore the others on the ​BBC Teach website​. Can you plan your own expedition and consider what you would need to take with you. Alternatively, you could write a first-hand account of your time in the rainforest from the perspective of Sir Walter. Remember that Sir Walter would not have had access to the mod cons we do now.

 ● Rumble in The Jungle - Get that Heart Rate Going! - Can you increase your heart rate by challenging yourself and members of the family to mimic the actions of animals which inhabit rainforests. Actions could include: jumping over logs, ducking under branches, high knees through quicksand, running from a tiger etc. Can you record your heart rate (beats per minute) after each activity. Which activity increased your heart rate most? 

 ● Deforestation: Our Climate and Our Planet​- ​As well as impacting on animal habitats and native people, deforestation is also a major contributor towards climate change. Can you create an awareness leaflet about the effects of ​climate change on our planet and how ​deforestation is contributing towards this​.


Have a super day everyone. Missing you all.
