Spelling and Handwriting


Your spelling lists and tasks for this week can be found on Spellzone.


Can you put each word into a sentence of your own?

Please write your sentences in your neatest joined handwriting. 




Continue to use Bug Club for reading and comprehensions. 



WALT: Write clear instructions using imperative verbs. 


Activity- You need to write instructions on how to make and test a waterwheel. Look through the powerpoint first, as this will remind you what you need to do. When writing your instructions you may use the template if you wish, these are differentiated so pick one you feel is most appropriate for you. There is also a checklist for you to use while writing so you can see if you have everything. 



WALT: Describe how past civilisations in Britain developed during the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.


Activity-Why have people historically settled by rivers?

You need to use a UK map to find local or nationally a significant town or city situated next to or on a river. For example you could research London on Thames and use the web links below to help find out why it grew as a settlement. You can also maybe challenge yourself to find other significant settlements. 


Design and Technology

WALT: Explore and use a range of mechanisms (levers, sliders, axels, wheels and cams) in models or products. 


Activity- Find out what hyropower is and explain how this renewable energy source has been used, both in the past and today. 


Look at pictures, animations and videos of water wheels in action to understand how they work, before designing and making your own. Follow the instructions below to make and test a water wheel. 




If you are stuck- A very simple version can be made using four plastic cups and double sided sticky tape. Cut the bottom third off each cup – these become the wheel’s buckets. Take one of the upper sections of the cups and lay it on its side. Using the tape, stick the four buckets at equal distances around this upper section, so that the bottom of one bucket is followed by the top of the next. Children can then place their fingers through the hole in the upper section to form an axle and run their wheel under a tap or get their partner to pour water onto it to see if it works.
