Parents please don’t forget to keep up to date by reading the weekly newsletters
This is our last week of Home Learning and it's going to be a little different
This week we would like you to complete a project. It is completely up to you what is included in your project and you can be as creative as you like. We would like to see you work independently but there are some ideas below to help you on your way. If there is any piece of work you are proud of and would like to share it, please bring into school over the next couple of weeks and we will put it on display. The topic we have chosen for your project is animals. Read on to find out more!
You might choose to base your project around all animals, one animal or a particular group such as mini-beasts, jungle animals, birds or pets.
Here are some ideas but we don’t mind what work is done, it’s about being interested.
Do some research:
- Find out about record breakers, habitats, lifespan etc and create a quiz about your animal or animals
- Create an animation about your animal/animals
Be a writer:
- Make a factfile or leaflet, include pictures and ‘Did You Know?’ boxes.
- Write an acrostic poem or a riddle. Look at the powerpoint below.
- Bake some animal cookies and write the recipe for others to follow
- Write a story about an animal (use the story stimulus pictures below to help inspire you)
- Write a diary entry of a day in the life of your pet
- Write a letter to our MP or a supermarket and make suggestions about what we need to do to protect wildlife or ask questions about what they are doing to help.
- Write a newspaper report about an event that involved animals (this can be a fictional event)
Be a scientist:
- Create a diagram of a life cycle.
- Draw an animal’s skeleton.
- Draw a food chain – who eats what?
- Think about environmental issues and how they affect animals, for example pollution in the sea. Make a poster that we could display in school.
- Make a model of your chosen animal
- Do some art work or colouring.
- Be a wild animal friend by making a bird feeder, or planting some flower seeds for the insects.
- Design a game. It could be similar to Top Trumps or Snap or Snakes and Ladders, eg giraffes and elephants – up the necks and down the trunks!
- Design a new fish, beetle or bird that has never been seen before – Where does it live? What does it eat?
- Design packaging for a product linked with animals - pet food/an animal toy or game/a gift for an animal
Below are a few more activities which you may want to try.
