Topic WC 13.07.20

This week for your topic work we want you to pull together everything you have learnt this half term about looking after your world to produce a poster to tell other people about how we can better look after our world.

 

You could pull key facts and information from each of the different sections we have covered:

 

Sustainability

Natural Resources

Habitats

Conservation

Bees

 

and put them into a poster (or another format if you would prefer) to tell other people about why these things are so important to looking after our world.

 

 

Topic WC 06.07.20

 

Following on from your work on finding out about natural resources last week, this week we are looking into sustainability.

 

What is sustainability? Why is it so important?

 

Here are 5 key areas where sustainability is important:

 

  • Energy
  • Habitats
  • Nature
  • Planet
  • Waste

 

Can you choose an area and have a go at completing the associated task mat?

 

You can find each one here:

Topic WC 29.6.20 

 

Natural Resources 

 

This week we are going to be learning about natural resources. You have been learning about what conservation is and why it’s important and this week we are looking specifically at some of the resources in the world that need to be conserved and looked after. 

 

We are using Oak Academy for this lesson this week with the lesson looking at the natural resources in the world. You can find the lesson here:

Topic 22.06.20 

 

Following on from your work on finding out about conservation last week, this week we would like you to find out about the different habitats that people who work in conservation are trying to protect. 

 

Can you find out what each of the following 5 main habitats are and where in the world you can find them? 

 

Tundra 

Forests 

Grasslands 

Deserts 

Aquatic 

 

Here is some information to help you:

Can you label any of these habitats on the world map? 

 

Topic 15.06.20 

 

This week we want you to think about the question ‘What is conservation?’ 

Can you find out what conservation is and what affects it? You might be able to write a definition of conservation or find out ways in which you can help. 

Once you have done this, we would like you to present what you find in a format of your choice. This might be as a paragraph, a poster or another method entirely, it is up to you.

Topic - WC 08.06.20 

 

This week we want you to find out all about the life cycle of a honey bee and draw a life cycle diagram detailing each stage of a bee’s life. 

Here are some resources to help you find the information you will need:

Here is an example of a life cycle diagram to help you get started: 

Topic WC 01.06.2020

 

To get started on our 'Bee' topic we would like you to have a look at Bee foods. Can you create a food diary for the week (or a day or even one meal if that's all you have time for) of all the things you eat and find out how many of them have a link to Bees? Do bees play a role in making the food you have eaten? How? What would happen to these foods if we didn't have bees?

 

Here is a food dairy template to help you:
