Maths Activity: 'Wednesday Session 2':

Watch the BBC Bitesize video learn a little bit more about lines of symmetry https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrhp34j/articles/z8t72p3 ones you’ve watched the clip and read the information below it, try and complete the activity at the bottom of the website page. If you want to challenge yourself a little more go outside into your garden or on your daily walk, try to find lines of symmetry in the outdoors. E.g. does your window have any lines of symmetry or a leaf off a tree?


Literacy Activity: Short Writing Task:

You should now have lots of adjectives for your curious creature, know about its habitat and its diet. Today we’ll be creating a fact file on your curious creature (Template available at the bottom of today's home learning). Don't worry if you don't have access to a printer, you can copy the layout into your work book. As well as including the adjectives and description about the creature you are going to try to include subheadings, interesting sentence openers and Conjuntions. Here is an example of one…

The Girliger


This fascinating creature has legs as long as pylons. It has teeth sharper than razors because it is a carnivore. Interestingly, it has a lion’s mane, giraffe’s neck and the eyes of a tiger. As it is part tiger, its colour is a vibrant orange with thick black strips.


Non Core Subject Activity: Science:

Read about habitats from this weblink.


Once you’ve read about the habitats, click on the link at the bottom of the page to do with each habitat. Write down 4 of the different habitats and then write down 3 animals that would live in that habitat.


Rainforest Habitat: Poison dart frog, Sloth and Lemur.
