  A Big hello to our lovely 🦔 Hedgehogs.   Tips for Family Camping with Kids | Nature quotes, Nature quotes ...

Week 7 of our Summer term already!!

We cannot believe we are in the last week of this school year! What a different one it has been for us all. We are so very proud of all of you for how you have kept going with your learning in so many different ways and for how you have adapted to a slightly different sort of life. We hope it has been and will continue to be filled with love, fun and learning. 

Thank you all for you lovely work on desert habitats. Together, we have looked at lots of different parts of the world and we, along with you, have learned many new things. One thing common to our study of all habitats has been how important it is for us as humans to look after the world and to look out for the other creatures who share it. If you can remember nothing else from our studies, we know we all will remember this. We hope you all have many adventures around the world in the years to come as you follow your desire for adventure. We hope you have an amazing summer and thank you all for being so wonderful in every way. HAVE FUN heart heart




For the first task, we would like you to write an acrostic poem based on one of the habitats around the world that we have studied. Have a think about what you know about that environment and the creatures we have learnt about that live there. Here is an example of one about rainforests:


You may want to make a list of words about the habitat before you start, remembering to include both adjectives and verbs. 


For the second task, we would like you to write a travel brochure for one of the habitats of the world that we have studied over the term. You can make this more specific if you want to by focusing upon one area - a particular desert like the Sahara, a particular rainforest like the Amazon, a particular ocean like the Pacific etc... 

We have attached a writing template for a travel brochure at the bottom of the page if you would like to use it.
