Chunk 3: Let in the light
We are onto multiplication! To start off this week, we are looking at partitioning which will help us with our future multiplication calculations.
As a warm-up, follow the video below. Then complete the worksheet. Remember to spend only one hour on this work!
Wider-curriculum / Foundation Subject - SCIENCE/ART/DT
Our new Science unit is 'Living Things and their Habitats'.
To launch our new unit, I want you to create a habitat diorama: 'a model representing a scene with three-dimensional figures, either in miniature or as a large-scale museum exhibit'. Obviously, I'm asking you for a miniature scale diorama - using a shoebox or jar - of one habitat of your choice.
Habitats such as:
- Arctic / antarctic ice caps and glaciers
- Wetland (marshes, swamps)
Obviously, each habitat is home to a range of different living things (plants and animals). You can use whatever materials you need, but the aim is to make the habitat look as authentic (real) as possible. In order to do this, try to use natural materials as much as possible, e.g. grass, moss, twigs.
I've put a range of different diorama examples on the document below to give you some ideas. We are super excited to see what you create! Please submit photos of your diorama by next Tuesday (2nd March).
