Monday - Science 

 

What are food chains?

How are living things dependent on others?

What happens to a food chain if the number or a certain species increases or declines?

What happens to food chains when habitats are destroyed?

 

Food chains in the rainforest

Who eats what or who in the rainforest?

A food chain shows how different species are linked by what they eat (consume). For example some food chains might be:

 

decaying leaf    ->    earthworm    ->    shrew    ->    owl

 

oak leaf    ->    caterpillar    ->    blue-tit

 

grass    ->    cow    ->    human

 

grass     ->   zebra     ->   lion

 

green plant   ->     slug      ->  frog

 

Use the sheets below to make your own rainforest food chains to show this. 

Tuesday - Science 

 

Rainforest in a box

Use what you have learned this half term about the layers of the rainforest, the food chains in the rainforest and changes to these habitats to create your own rainforest in a box.

 

For those of you who like a plan to follow, we have attached instructions below. But do feel free to follow your own creativity and use your own ideas and what you can find at home.

 

It would be great if you could add labels to show the food chain and layers, and any other information. You may want to base your rainforest on The Amazon Rainforest, or choose the creatures of the Daintree Rainforest in Australia, or another rainforest of the world.

 

Please send us photographs and keep them safe, so you can bring them in and share them when we return to school.

 

Wednesday - PE, Times Tables & Quiz 

 

As usual, please complete a PE related activity. This might be a walk or cycle ride with your family, or you may prefer to find an online workout like Joe Wicks to complete. 

 

Please also practise your times tables - you could use the times tables olympics sheets or TT Rockstars.

Thursday - RE 

 

 

Friday - PSHE/RSHE and French

 

For today's PSHE/RSHE lesson, we would like you to create your own positivity jar. You could draw a jar and write inside it, or you could find a jar (or a box, or anything similar!) and decorate it to put slips of paper inside. Think about anything positive you can include: it might be positive things about you (like being kind, being a good friend etc) or it might be positive things about this lockdown (like spending more time with family). 

 

We have also included a rainforest word search for you to complete - just for a bit of Friday/end of term fun! 

For today's French lesson, please watch the presentation below called "My Home" and complete the activity with it, choosing from 1 star (easiest) to 3 star (trickiest) - you don't have to complete all three!
