On Monday, we had a look at animals that live in the Arctic and Antarctica, and compared the two. 

I would like you to choose an Arctic animal, draw it and write everything you know about it e.g. a polar bear has white fur for camouflage. 

Make it colourful!

Today, I would like you to have a look at the animals that live in Antarctica and write me a short fact file about one animal of your choice. Can you write 3 full sentences, remembering your capital letters and full stops. If you feel like you want a challenge, you can write me 3 full sentences using 'and' to connect two sentences together. Remember to make it informative! 

We have looked closely at Polar Regions and delved into the continent of Antarctica.. Today, we are going to look at the other continents of the world. Firstly, we are going to explore more deeply what a continent is and then by the end of the lesson we will be able to name the 7 continents and perhaps a few facts about each. 

Listen to the PowerPoint which is me introducing each continent and then have a go at the tasks above. 

Y1 - Only do page 1 of the activity sheet.

Yesterday, we had a look at the continents of the world. We learnt that there at 7 continents which are surrounded by oceans. Therefore, today we are going to look at the oceans that make up our world. Can you have a listen to the BBC clip and have a go at Level 1 on the quiz. 

13th January - Green Zone

14th January - Penguin Research

Use the internet or a range of books to find out about penguins. We already know from our Lost and Found book that come from the South Pole. Can you pretend you're a researcher and find as much information about them as you can e.g. how are they adapted to living in their environment? What do they eat? 

You can either make an information leaflet or you can create a video where you are reporting to viewers everything you have found. Be creative

18th January RE

Go and sit in your garden or somewhere where you feel calm and peaceful. I would like you to draw and label what you see and enjoy. 

This is your topic work for the week. Listen to the PowerPoint/supporting BBC clip and then complete the following activities.

Once you have logged on and are on the homepage, click onto 'topics' and then find 'polar regions' (with the icon of a snow cloud). Then, go to 'animals in Antarctica' in the paint project subheading. Use your computing skills to create your own drawings of the animals that live in Antarctica. I'm looking forward to seeing them!
