Wk beg 27.4.20 Habitats

Online learning Week beginning 27.4.20


Welcome back to another week of learning at home. I am very impressed with all your projects so far and how hard you have been working! I am loving the life skills you have been practising too- I have a whole class of bakers, cooks, gardeners, artists and children who can tie their shoe laces! Fabulous!


This week I have added some literacy tasks for you to do at the bottom of the page. Most of you will start with the Year 3 pack but might want to look at some of the Year 2 activities to revise as well. Some of you may start with Year 2 and then do Year 3 afterwards. (I have added Year 1's for some of you as well as there are some skills in there that might need revision). 

There are maths activities set on education city and 'Bug Club' reading and comprehension to be done as well. These are must do activities and I will be checking to see how you have managed them. You must read everyday, either reading your own books or reading on 'Bug Club'.

You should continue with your high frequency word reading and spelling, times tables and division facts and the handwriting that was in the pack we sent home at the beginning of home schooling.

Then there are your projects. Have a look below and decide what you want to do. Read carefully as some things are a must and some are a choice. Don't forget to send me photos so I can add them to the bottom of the page!

BBC bite size and Joe Wicks have activities and lessons everyday too so check them out to see if there’s anything you want to do or learn about. 


This week your home learning is all about:

Habitats Around The World.






To name and describe a range of different habitats.

Identify and label specific plants and animals in these habitats.

Describe how a change to an environment (eg deforestation in rainforests) is a danger to specific habitats.


First, look at a world map and find and name different habitats.

Can you find the Arctic and Antarctic, Rainforests (between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn), oceans, deserts, temperate (we live in a temperate climate) and mountainous areas? We have found lots of these in Geography- remember the balloon lesson!



Then choose from these ideas:

  • Have pictures of a range of animals and plants and match them to the environment in which they are found. Place them on a world map to show where they come from.
  • Describe how animals and plants are suited to the habitats in which they are found- look at what they eat, how they keep warm or cool and the colours of the surrounding environment and the animals.
  • Choose an animal to research in more detail. What can you find out about them? How will you present your work? Perhaps you could make a non-fiction book about your animal using pictures you have drawn, photos, captions and labels and some factual writing?
  • Can you find a strange plant (think about your home learning on plants from last week) or a plant that lives in a very difficult habitat? How does it survive? Could you compare it to a plant from a different habitat- how are they the same and different? Could each plant survive in the habitat of the other? Why or why not?


You can do as many of these as you like or come up with some ideas of your own. Remember to send us photos of your projects so we can share them on our class pages on the website.


Finally… You must look at threats to habitats and wildlife

Follow a specific threat that really interests you.

Create a way to explain the threat and information to others that is exciting and interesting to read. You could make a collage, a leaflet, a poster or an amazing piece of artwork.
