For the next few weeks, our topic work is going to be about the food that people ate during The Stone Age.
I've attached a PowerPoint for you to look through which explains the types of food that were eaten in this period of time.
At the end it suggests that you could try stewing up some fruit with honey like the Stone Age people would have done. Soft fruits like berries work well, but apples and pears peeled and chopped would also work. Have a go at this, but only if your parents have some suitable fruit at home and agree that you can.
Now that you have seen a bit about what they eat, your task for today is to find out what Stone Age people could 'gather' all year round. Different plants will grow in different seasons, so they would have needed to find things that grow during all four seasons to be able to eat all year round. Read the information about the foods that they could eat, and sort them onto the seasons wheel. Can they eat all year round?
This week in art we are using the Evolution of Man as inspiration. I've attached a link to a YouTube video of someone using oil pastels to create a background and then drawing the stages of evolution on top. You can use whatever resources you have to create the background.
I've also attached a copy of the finished picture.
I'd love to see your finished artwork. You can send it to me by email or on ClassDojo. Remember, if your grown up hasn't received an invitation by email, let me know and I'll get it sorted (they sometimes go into spam folders).
This week we are going to be continuing with internet safety. I've added a link to a website called Think You Know. It has been designed especially for home learning and would be good to do with a grown up.
There are sections for ages 5-7 and 8-10. You can choose which link you follow. Whichever you choose, there is a video to watch and discuss and then an activity to complete.
For this week, please do Activity Pack 1.
If you are in Y4, your science is on Woodpecker class page.
This week we are going to continue looking at forces around us and we are going to be using some BP Educational Resources.
If you follow the link below, you can then add the code 89131 and you will be able to access the video introducing the lesson.
Then you can use the resources I have attached to go on your own Forces Treasure Hunt.
I'd love to see videos or photographs of the forces you find on ClassDojo.
Last week we started this term's work by looking at special places.
Did you notice that some of the places in the PowerPoint would be special to people for religious reasons? They were places of worship. These are places which are special for people of different religions. There are places for people of different religions to worship all over the world.
There are some places that are special for religious reasons in specific places in the world. They are places where something that is considered special within that religion took place.
Sometimes people will make a journey to visit one of these places, and this type of journey is called a pilgrimage. Sometimes this journey may be a once in a lifetime experience, but some people may be fortunate enough to go more than once.
Over the next few weeks, we will be learning about places of pilgrimage for the different religions we have been talking about in school this year.
This week we begin with Christianity. There are a number of pilgrimage sites for Christians around the world, and they are all special for one of two reasons.
The first reason is that the place was significant in the life of Jesus.
The second reason is that there is a connection between a place and a saint or miracle.
Today, there is a PowerPoint for you to go through which describes some of the places that Christians may go to on pilgrimage.
After that there are 3 possible tasks. You can choose to do one, two or three of them.
One is a card sort and match, which has the names of places, and descriptions of why they are significant to Christians.
One is about significant sites in the UK, which asks you to describe why each is important to Christians.
One is a reading comprehension about Lourdes, a town in France
