Wednesday: Create an informative leaflet to advertise your relaxation garden. Remember to include the reasons why people should visit, opening times, contact number, address etc.

Thursday: Continue to create your information leaflet. It would be wonderful to see an image of your leaflet once it is finished. You could always tweet me at @BSMYear6 or @Bostonstmarys

Art

Research Vincent Van Gogh – Create a fact file about his life and his artwork. If you want to, you could attempt to recreate his painting ‘The Sunflower’ – I would love to see your artwork!

Science

Carry out your own ‘cress growing’ experiment at home. Place your cress seeds in 4 different places around your house. Predict where you think the cress will grow the fastest? Slowest?

Write a method and then a conclusion once you have carried out your experiment. Once you have finished with your experiment you could eat your cress on a delicious salad.

Geography

Create a PowerPoint about the journey of a Banana. We briefly learnt about this earlier on in the year during our Fair Trade afternoon. It would be lovely to see some of your PowerPoints.
