In school, we have been creating a non-chronological report. Below here you will find the ppt slides that we will begin our topic with. There are also some examples of n;on-chronological reports of various animals for you to have a look over. Please pay attention to how the reports are set out and presented - there are common structures in all of the reports and how they are layed out.

 

Following on from this, we will be choosing our own African animal to research and write a non-chronological report about. You will need to research and find out information about your chosen animal so that you can either email in to school or bring in yourself, when you return to school. There is a planning template that you could use in the documents attached below to help you.

Your research should include information including the following: 

Appearance/Features;

Habitat/Environment;

Diet;

Threats

Interesting Facts.

Maths Challenge by Choice Yr6

 

Below here you will find a variety of maths challenges to occupy you, should you choose. They vary in challenge, but should be accessible to everybody in Yr6. 

 

We hope you enjoy trying to attempt, solve and answer them as much as I did finding them!

 

We'll post the answers to these on a Thursday afternoon so that you can check your solutions. There may be some different solutions to ours too, so we'd love to see them!

To begin with, download the African Biomes ppt and read through the slides. The other documents are the information sheets you will need & the challenge to complete

Linking art to our Africa topic, we would like you to have a go at trying to draw a lion. Follow the YouTube link below for a step-by-step set of instructions to help you.

 

 

Science

Once again, our science topic has a link to our Africa topic as we are learning about adaptations. We will be looking at the conditions in different environments and the characteristics that animals have that help them to survive.
