Science

Summer 2 Week 2 - 8th June - 12th June
  • Research and learn about the human skeleton. You can use the resources below. Then complete both activity sheets. On the first sheet, you need to label the human skeleton. On the second sheet, you need to research the questions and then answer them.

You can also create a fact sheet, poster or PowerPoint about the human skeleton.

If you cannot print them out, you can just write the answers on paper. 

Summer 2 Week 1 - 1st June - 5th June 2020

  • Learn about the different muscles in the human body and their function. Then complete the activity below or create a fact poster or PowerPoint. 

Summer Week 5 - 18th May to 22nd May 2020

Aim to complete both of the science activities.

  • Learn about the types of teeth humans have and their functions. Use the PowerPoint or BBC Bitesize website to help you.
  • Learn about the organs in the human body and their function. Complete the activity ones of the activity sheets below or create a fact poster. If you choose the sheet with answers to match up, you can write them on the sheet or put them in the right place and then take a photo.

Summer Week 4 - 11th May to 15th May 2020

Aim to complete both of the science activities.

 

  • Learn about the human skeleton. Label the skeleton with the correct bones.
  • Create a health and fitness plan for a hero. Design a healthy, balanced diet menu for the week for them to eat. Think what exercise they should also do and for how often to help them stay healthy. Use the Eatwell guide to help you to plan your menu.

Summer Week 3 - 4th May to 7th May 2020

Aim to complete at least one of the Science activities

 

  • Design a menu for a VE Day street party. Make sure there is a balance of different foods. Label the food group each type of food is from. Use the Eatwell guide to help you. This can be for a party for 1945 or for 2020. Use the ration guide to help you for 1945. You could plan a menu for both 1945 and 2020 to compare the similarities and differences.
  • Create a food diary or a menu for someone living during World War 2. Use the rations sheet for the rations of food that people had access to, so you know what they ate in order to plan your menu. Label the food groups. You could base it on what you would like to eat.

Summer Week 1 and 2 - 21st April to 24th April and 27th April to 1st May

Aim to complete two of the science activities. You can choose which activities

  • Explore the different food groups and what people need to eat to be healthy. Design a menu for eating a healthy, balanced diet. You could base it on the country you are researching.

Read the packaging of the food you have at home. What types of food groups are there? What do we need to eat to be healthy? Should we eat lots of sugary food? You could design a poster informing people about healthy eating and why we should eat healthily.

Complete a page of the finding the group activity - Write examples of how much of each food we should eat and what group each food is in.

  • Create an animal study. Research what animals live in your country.
  1. What is the animal’s habitat? (water, grassland, arctic, forest, desert).
  2. What climate does the animal like? (hot, cold, rainy, ice)
  3. Are they hot or cold-blooded? What type of animal are they? (mammal, bird, fish, reptile, amphibian).
  4. What does your animal eat?
  5. What is its body covered in? (feathers, scales, fur)
  6. How does it keep itself safe?
  • Create your own animal that could live in your country.
  • Create a food chain using animals from your country. Food chains start with a producer, such as lettuce, grass, carrots. That is then eaten by rabbit. A fox then eats the rabbit.
  • Research the habitats that are in your country.
  • Create a poster explaining how you can protect the habitats in your country. What different habitats are in your country?

Week 2 - 30th March to 3rd April

Aim to complete two of the science activities. You can choose which activities you do.

You can use the sheets below or create your own.

  • Shadow investigation. Make a shadow puppet or an object in your house and get a torch (you can use one on your phone). Make a sketch of the shadows you create and where the torch and the object is.

 

Alternatively, if it is a sunny day, you can measure your shadow at different times of the day. Make sure you stand in the same place. What happens to the size of your shadow throughout the day?

  • Research the Sun. Then create a poster or mind map with facts about the Sun.
  • Design a poster about how to stay safe in the Sun.
  • Research your favourite planet. Write facts about it and draw a picture of it.
  • Make a list of appliances in your home that are electrical. Then organise your list in items that are battery operated (DC power) and Mains operated (AC power).

Week 1 - 24th to 26th March 2020

 

For Science this week, I would like you to learn about the Moon. We started learning about the phases of the Moon in class last week.

Each day, you need to look at the Moon at the same time every day and shade in the picture to show the phase of the Moon. You can label it with the name of the phase the Moon is in.

 

Read through the PowerPoint below or use the Internet to research about the Moon and its phases and then complete at least one of these activities as well as the Moon diary.

 

Activities to do about the Moon

  • Describe the phases of the Moon using the sheet in your home learning pack
  • Create a story map explaining the phases of the Moon
  • Design a model to show how the Moon moves with the Earth
  • Create a video explaining and showing the phases of the Moon
