If you have finished your work set in your Year Group folder for the first 2 days of self isolation then try some of the challenges below... the more creative you are, the better!
All pupils: Invent a creature and create a habitat for it!
You could do this in any way you wish but think about:
- Looking online or in books at imaginary creatures to get inspiration.
- Draw your creature and label it.
- Making an adult and baby creature and think about the scale between the two.
- Think about where your creature might live and why - you could research the habitats of real creatures to get some ideas.
- Make a home for your creature
- What are its strengths and weaknesses against other predators?
Years 3 & 4 - please also ...
- Think about what your creature might eat and what might eat it. Can you draw a food chain to show this?
This link will help: What is a food chain?
Years 5 & 6 - please also ...
- Think about classification groups for your animals - invertebrates, mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish. Create a new creature and explain why it fits your chosen category.
- Use what you know about food chains and eating habits (carnivore, omnivore, herbivore) to write a daily menu for your new creature.
This link will help: What does classification mean?
All pupils could also:
- Make the habitat and the creature using paper, card or playdoh. www.actionforchildren.org has a recipe for how to make your own playdoh.
- Write a story about your creature and where it lives.
- Imagine that your creature is an alien from another planet. What does it do on earth? What happens?
What you will learn:
- You will use your imagination and improve your art skills and coordination.
- Apply knowledge you have already learned in school to a new situation.
