This week we would like you to create a picture storyboard of a journey with a couple of sentences telling us about each part of your journey. Watch the reading of A River for inspiration. This journey could be ANYTHING you like, e.g. your favourite walk with your adult, a morning walk with the dog or even a walk to the shops! Whatever you like. Do this journey with your adult and take pictures as you go so we get a step by step insight in to your journey, try to make your pictures as interesting as possible. Then if you can, print them out and create a storyboard of your journey, if you can't print or would rather not, then draw the steps using the photos for inspiration. You can take as many photos as you like but we think 6 would be a good number to aim for.
Then, look at the pictures, can you think of interesting verbs to include in your sentences? Were you walking, driving, cycling at each point of your journey? Write these down on a rough piece of paper. Look at your pictures again, can you think of any prepositions that you could include? Remember prepositions tell us the location of something, e.g. under the bridge, through the tiny lane, in the dark forest....write these down next to your verbs.
Then, for each picture can you write a couple of sentences describing your image, e.g. 'the car bumpily carried me through the busy streets of Plymouth passing by lots of people rushing around'.
As always, please remember to take a picture of your finished learning and send it to us as really love to see what you have been up to.
Science - Food Chains
This week we would be looking at food chains.
We would like you to watch the videos below to help you understand what a food chain is.
Once you have looked at the videos and checked out the DK FindOut website, use the online activities for creating different food chains. Remember that all food chains start with a producer.
Finally, we'd like you to try to create a few food chainsbased upon rivers and seas. Research you own food chain and use pictures that you have drawn or you can use one of the resources to make one that we have provided.
