Week 7/ 1.3.2021

This week sees the start of March, the official beginning of Spring. We're sure, like us, you have noticed the days getting longer. It is light now until after 6pm, which means longer outdoor time!

Wednesday March 3rd is World Wildlife Day. This ties in nicely with our religion theme of looking after the earth.

Thursday is World Book Day. We hope you have managed to enter the FOSPA competition to celebrate this event. Closing date is today at 3pm, so if you haven't already entered you still have some time left today. But hurry!!

Finally a little reminder. Every Wednesday you are set an interactive literacy activity on Education City. Last week only 16 pupils in P6 completed this work. 3 did a part of it. 17 were recorded as 'not attempted'. That is almost half our P6 class!! We would like you this week to try really hard and attempt this work. The scores achieved and the units completed are sent directly to us, so we know how well you are doing. Congratulations to the children who have been working hard on their Education City to date.

  • Endangered species in 'Our Common Home'. 

Some species in our common home are in danger of becoming extinct. This can happen for a variety of reasons. Human beings sometimes destroy the natural habitats of living things by cutting down trees to build roads and other developments. Pollution and contamination of water can be caused by careless disposal of waste  from homes, factories, farms, oil refineries and many other sources. Sometimes people hunt and kill animals for their meat, fur and other valuable parts of their bodies.

 

Today's activity on Seesaw gives you examples of some creatures which are now considered endangered. You have to give reasons for why this is, and make some suggestions as to what humans can do to help them. If you can view the original document you will find 3 pages with 14 animals pictured. Choose 3-4 animals to research and complete the information from the table beside its picture.

You can draw the table into your exercise book and draw a picture of the animal if you cannot download or print off the sheet.

You are to continue on with your research on India. Please remember we are expecting you to present your information and findings in a variety of ways;- screenshots, text boxes, word processing, handwritten pieces, drawn pieces. YOU MUST DO RESEARCH!! Not just write an answer to each question on each page! We are not testing what you know, but we want to find out how good your actual research skills are. Some of you might like to revisit the work you have posted up on Tuesday and see how you might add to it or improve it. This task was set for the week and some of you had it done in 30 minutes! Not what we expected or instructed!

Congratulations to all the children who entered the World Book Day Competition. The standard of work was very high, which made the task of choosing winners really difficult. All of the teachers were very impressed by the creativity and detail used in producing these little potato characters. Here are the winners from each class.
