Learning Project - To be completed throughout the week

Here is an overview of tasks I’d like the Year 5 children to be completing at home over the next week.


Topic/ Computing

Make your own leaflet to describe your theme park. Remember – the theme park should advertise your park and persuade people to attend. It should also give information to the readers who are already at the park.



Last week you made a map and key for your theme park. Based on the key you created, create a table that categorises the features on the key as ‘Human’ and ‘Physical’ features.


Science / Computing

Research pulleys and levers. Create a powerpoint / presentation that explains what they are, how they work and where they’re used. Imagine you are writing this for an alien who has never been to a theme park before.



Complete the PE lesson using the resources located on the Topic page under Topic Learning Resources.



Create a caricature of a person of your choice. Caricature drawings are often for sale at fairgrounds and are a lovely reminder of the day. I look forward to seeing your caricature inspired portraits!



This week we are going to be reflecting on the transformation of Saul by the Holy Spirit. Read through the scripture and discuss the events. Imagine you are Saul. Write a letter to a friend describing what has happened to you and give reasons to show how this experience has changed your life.
