In Guided Reading this week we will be looking at Chapter 1 of Escape from Black Mountain. This has been allocated to you on Bug Club.
Please find daily worksheets below to go with the chapter.
This half term our topic is 'Plants'.
This week we are looking at the different parts of a plant and how plants can be food for humans and other animals.
Draw a plant of your choice (eg – a sunflower) and label it, explaining the function of the different parts of a plant.
Below are some sheets to help practice your handwriting.
Copy it out into your workbook or a lined page.
WALT- describe and understand what climate zones/biomes are.
You need to use the 'World Biomes' Powerpoint to find the definition of what Biome is and understand the different types. You then have an activity sheet 'World Biomes' of labelling the different biomes.
Read through the 'World Biomes and Climate Zones' Powerpoint, this will go over the work from activity one but also introduce what Climate Zones are. This will help you understand and link the Biomes to the Climate Zones. Complete the activity sheet whilst you are going through the Powerpoint.
The last part of this activity is to write a postcard/letter/email (you may use the activity sheet as guidance or write in your home learning book or actually email us!) based on you visiting one of the Biomes/Climate Zones! So you need to research a little bit of information about one of them and tell us all about it.
WALT- understand the natural line and shape found within plants!
Shadow painting/drawing. Go outside, if you can, to find some plants in your garden or on a daily walk (where safe to do so). Place paper on the ground and trace the shadow with a pencil.
Think about the types of lines and shapes you are drawing- are they straight? curved? long? Think about how different plants in nature look in comparison to things which are man-made.
Once you have traced your shadow of a plant, you can choose to paint, colour, shade in your work- the choice is yours! You can explore using different materials, colours and textures.
