Topic - Science

This week, we are continuing to focus on life processes, specifically plant reproduction. Please watch the videos below - it may be a good idea to take notes. 

After watching the videos, can you order these images into a life cycle? Remember to add your arrows too, to show the cycle repeating over time. 

Once you have organised and checked the images, can you create your own storyboard to share with others?

An example has been given below. This task can combine your story telling skills as well as your Art skills too. Enjoy smiley 

 

*ICT alternative* - If you would prefer to create a Powerpoint instead, then use your notes to transform them into an informative presentation! 

Checking your knowledge - Using the link below, complete the quiz about plant reproduction.

Music

This week, we are introducing another set of songs to listen to and appraise. There is a chance to learn key facts about the band, The Beatles, as well as learn the inner details of the song titled, Blackbird. In previous weeks, lots of children have already shared their musical talents on Zoom calls as well as upload their music skills to Padlet. We can't wait to see what you produce this week.

 

Below is a step by step guide to using Charanga (Zumu package).
