Week Beginning 15th June

Hello Class 4

...or should I say newspaper reporters? Your reports were wonderful - thank you again for working so hard on them. I also enjoyed all of the clever computer layout and photographs.

This week, you are going to find out about another group of men who were just as brave as Shackleton's crew and were just as important for his expedition. Not a lot of people hear their story, so you are very privileged. You'll have the chance to look at some of the creatures who live in Antarctica and we are moving onto flowers in science, so keep your eyes peeled for a buttercup because you need a specimen.

There are a couple more games for you to have a go at on the computer involving asteroids and diamonds and you can learn how to say where you live in Spanish. The challenge in the Virtual Worcestershire Games is a throwing target. We tried the last challenge at school and the first three targets were quite easy, but we couldn't hit the final one (Mrs Sauntson had chosen a pan!).

Stay safe, keep learning and smiley! You are all wonderful!

Find out about the creatures who live 'Beneath The Waves' in Antarctica.

Have a look at the Cool Clip (just the one about Emporer Penguins please) and then complete the quiz in Who's Looking At You and the Who's Eating Who activity.

Choose one of these amazing creatures and can you find out anything else about them?


For the next activity, you will need to find a buttercup. The questions and key should then help you identify which type of buttercup you have.
