This morning we are continuing to reflect on understanding God, his messages and his teachings.
What does peace mean to you? How can you find peace and be peaceful at this time? Find somewhere in your home where you could make yourself a peace place, you could put a nice blanket, cushion, poster or anything else that will help you find peace and understand how you are feeling whilst at home.
Today we are continuing to look at a new area of maths, the area of an object or a shape. Today we are looking at comparing the area of different shapes. There is a link to the videos found here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/spring-week-4-measurement-area/
Alongside working through the video content, there is also a work sheet that will expand on comparing the area of different shapes.
We are continuing through our book today and exploring half of the next section of the text. Explore the picture and text below. The last sentence is cut in half but it should read: "Some of the men despaired."
Remember to start with a read through and record/explore/discuss any words or phrases you don't recognise. This is a really valuable step to help improve the language you use in your writing as well as comprehending your reading.
Task 1 - Imagine you are one of Shackleton's crew. You have just landed on the beach after weeks at sea. Create 2 lists, one for the emotions you maybe feeling walking onto the beach and a list of body feelings such as exhaustion and starvation you may be feeling.
Task 2 - Now think, you have only just got out of the boat but Shackleton is already saying it is not safe to stay. Create a for and against table. For going will mean getting back in the boats and against will mean staying on the beach where you are. Can you put your ideas in the form of speech? I have put the table below.
|For leaving with Shackleton
|Against leaving with Shackleton
As we have previously discussed the Antarctic is not owned by a single group of people or country. Instead Antarctica is governed by the Antarctic Treaty System. This is agreed to by a large range of countries. Your task is to create a fact file of what the treaty is and how it protects Antarctica. You can create your fact file in any way you would like, a poster, a written document, a powerpoint... anything you would like to do.
The websites below may help you out.
Task 2 - Antarctica is an enormous continent and covers a very large area as well as being constantly changing based on the ice floes around it. I would like you to create your own map of the Antarctic. On the map I would also like you to mark the position of the different research stations and facilities that are based on Antarctica.
You can create your map out of any material and in anyway you wish. The picture below may help you out.
