So here we are, week 4, over half way through our final term of the school year, can you believe it? We've been working hard in our key worker bubble and it has been great to have so many of our Silver Birch key workers here with us, however we are definitely missing being together as our whole class. Once again we've put lots of learning for you to keep you busy. We'd like you to continue to keep your creativity flowing with our Pandora Project. We'd also really love to hear from you even if it's just a hello to let us know how you're all doing; our inboxes are a bit quiet.
Have another fantastic week, we've been promised some sun so make sure you take the time to get outside to play and make some lovely memories.
Topic - The Amazon Rainforest
* Watch some videos to get a feel of what the Rainforest is like.
* Look at the PPTs to get some information about them.
* Complete the amazing facts worksheet. (The headings may need explaining)
* Use the photos (PPT with notes) and fact sheet to complete the 'How places change' sheet.
PSHE - Communities
* Explore the questions and discussion points on the PPT and alongside the images.
* Create your newspaper reports choosing one of the templates.
* Write 1 or more pledges for your community. Consider during the pandemic, and after it's passed. Consider who you will help and how you can do this safely.
Computing - Script writing
Once your video has been planned, you will need to write a script that you can practise and follow during filming. A little improvisation (making it up as you go along!) can also be included.
Watch the BBC video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks2-write-a-script/z4tmd6f for ideas.
Look at the PPT that shows you how to write a script, then have a go at writing one for your film.

* Use the website to explore what being a Humanist is about: https://understandinghumanism.org.uk/uhtheme/celebrations-and-ceremonies/?age=7
* Use the PPT and watch the video to find out how babies are introduced into the world.
* Use the planning sheet to plan your own naming ceremony.
* Draw a leaf and write inside it a promise to a new baby, or advice you would give them.
