ENGLISH

This week and next our English lessons look at the Second World War. There have been many anniversaries lately from this important period in our history so you may know quite a lot already.

The activites include creating a quiz, writing a poem or short story, designing a magazine page about evacuees, a character study and then a short story using 'Goodnight Mr Tom' by Michelle Magorian as inspiration.

MATHS

This week sees the introduction of percentages. They are not difficult at all. Percentages are just another way of writing hundreths. Watch the videos and maybe do some research on Google but  take care to stick to the basics.

RE

The RE activites this week all centre around colours. I picked this because I've been reading about Joseph and his coloured coat over the last few days. It mentions the rainbow and we have been seeing a lot of rainbows around about the place lately!

PE

Here is the link to this week's PE challenge. Let's hope the weather improves so you can do it outside.

SCIENCE

I've given you some sheets this week with a watery theme.

HISTORY

One of the things that ancient Greece is famous for is the invention of 'democracy'. Look the word up in a dictionary or on line and find out what it means.

 

Democracy began in Ancient Greece in the city state of Athens. In fact, the Ancient Greek system has helped to shape many systems of democracy around the world today, including our own in this country.

Find out who was included in the democracy in ancient Athens. Who was left out?

Who is included in democracy in the UK today? Who is left out?

What are the main differences between democracy in ancient Greece and democracy now? Fill in the table on the activity sheet by listing the main differences between democracy in Ancient Greece and democracy in the UK now.

Choose the level of sheet that feels right for you.
