Your tasks for this week:

This week in science you can explore the different materials found around your home.

You could also try these fun activities:

  • Draw a picture of your home and add some labels to show the different materials it is made out of! 
  • Go on a 'material hunt!' All you need is a piece of paper and divide it into 4 sections labelled wood, plastic, metal and fabric. Walk around your home/garden and draw and label the objects in the correct section.
  • Play a sorting game. Ask your parent to gather different objects in a box and it is your job to place them in the correct piles for wood, plastic, metal and fabric!

Have fun :)

This term we enjoyed reading books set in the different counties that we're learning about, such as Africa and Australia.

For your English task this week, watch this traditional tale from Nigeria called 'The Strongest Man In The World'.

Once you have watched it - can you act it out? 

You can challenge yourself by writing the story in your book. Don't forget to illustrate it with your wonderful drawings!
