Project Homework Ideas   06.07.20

This week – let’s go under the sea!

1. Can you make an under the sea scene like this one -

Ocean in an egg carton

 
  2. 

 

Find out all about animals that live in the sea. Choose your favourite one and make a fact file. Where does it live? What does it eat? What does it look like? Any amazing facts?

3. Use your art skills to draw or make a sea creature – it could be a real one or one that you have created. Use pencil and paper and label the main features or use scrap materials you have around the house. See below for ideas.

 

 

Don’t forget to send in photos of your project work!

Project Homework Ideas - 29.06.20

 

For the rest of this half term our ideas will focus on our final topic of the year  ‘Beachcombers’  - all about the seaside.

 Let’s start with rockpools!

  1. Can you find out about the living things that live in a rockpool. Make an information poster ‘All about Rockpools’ or you could make one about your favourite rockpool creature.

Watch these two clips from BBC Bitesize to help you. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zpfnvcw

2. Now can you invent your own amazing rock pool resident! What features will it need to survive happily in its watery habitat?  Draw and label it or maybe make a 3-D creature.

3. Write a poem about the living things that make their home in a rock pool. An acrostic or shape poem would be fun! Here is an example

 
   

Starfish live in salty water

They cling tightly to rocks

All their arms stuck on like glue

Ready to battle the tide

Feel them – they are rough

In the sea you will find them

Sheltering in cool rockpools

Hiding away

Good Morning – here are this week’s ‘Scented Garden’ challenges ……

  1. Can you design your own garden – Will it have benches?  Will you grow fruit and vegetables? Will you have lots of flowers? (See a couple of ideas below) Maybe you will have a playhouse or a maze? We can’t wait to see your designs!  Can you find out how much some of the things would cost to buy for your garden.

 

  1. Garden Potion - Hunt in your garden or green space nearby for petals and leaves with different shapes, colours and scents. Fill a cup or container halfway to the top with the things you collect. (Try to collect petals that have already fallen in preference to picking.) Add a little water to your leaves and petals. Find a good stick to stir, mix and mash your collection. This will release all of nature’s smells.  Who has made a lovely smell and what did they use? Did anyone make a truly disgusting, smelly potion, and what is it made of? Will smelling your potion make people run very fast, feel sleepy, happy or maybe help them gain special powers? E.G Turn invisible!  Design a label telling people what the potion is for or design a poster advertising your potion. You could also write instructions for someone else to follow and make.

 

  1. A quick and simple science investigation to show how a plant absorbs water up its stem and nourishes its petals or leaves.  Just cut the end off a piece of celery and pop it in some red or blue food colouring – What do you think will happen? – record your prediction. 

 

Eventually, the celery will have a red or blue tint as it absorbs the colouring, particularly on the end. Leave it for a couple of days to ensure nice bright results, but overnight would probably work too. You could try a white flower instead of celery.

Does one colour work better than the other? Does it matter how long the stem is?

 

Have fun! We can't wait to see your learning - don't forget to send us photos.
