If you are waiting or have finished your year group day 1 and 2 work.... try this cross curricular challenge project

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.

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.
