Science

  • Look through the PowerPoint below about conserving energy for inspiration. Keep a log/diary for a week to track the energy you have conserved.
*********************************************************************************
  • Have a read through some of the information in the PowerPoint to do with renewable energy. Write a persuasive argument for a debate as to why we should use one of the renewable sources of energy. You can do your own research to add more info and you could even choose to include Hydroelectric energy which isn't mentioned in he PowerPoint.
  • Remember our rules of PEEL for writing your argument. (Point Evidence Explanation Link) You can use the disadvantages mentioned in the PowerPoint as rebuttals or ways to set up your own points by turning their arguments on their head. You can use non-renewable energy info to help your argument.
  • Have a motion to your argument e.g 'We should only use more wind turbine energy sources'
*********************************************************************************
  • In Science we are now going to be looking at renewable resources. First look through this PowerPoint to do with non-renewable energy (fossil fuels) and complete the worksheet. Everyone should complete the 3 star version. If you wish to draw your own map, feel free to do so.
*********************************************************************************
  • Try these reading tasks about the Sun, Moon and Earth. They are separated into 1,2 and 3 star activities. Start with the 2 star task. Finding it to easy try the 3 star, finding it too hard try the 1 star.
  • Watch this video from Espresso about why we have day/night and the seasons. Then use the information to create a poster explaining all about how and why we have these features here in the UK. (You may need the username and password provided in your school home learning pack to access the website) 
*********************************************************************************
  • Earth and Space - Create a poster about your favourite planet. See if you can remember some of the information/facts we learnt in school before researching it.

 

  • You may have seen rainbows placed in the windows of houses as you have been for a daily walk or you might have drawn one yourself. Well why not have a go at growing your own rainbow? Follow the instructions to create your rainbow and then read carefully to learn about the science behind it.

 

  • Try some of these exciting experiments from the Royal Institute of Science at home.

Have a go at becoming an avid bird spotter. http://www.treetoolsforschools.org.uk/activities/pdfs/pdf_garden_birds_spotter_sheet.pdf

 

Also why not see what other nature you can spot that strays close to your home. Create a fact file about the life cycle of this animal, similar to what we did at the start of Year 5.
