Summer Term Week 2 Lesson 3 & 4

Problem Solving



Use your reasoning skills to have a go at these activities!





Using a pen or pencil, draw round lots of different objects you can find. Try to use different shapes and let them overlap each other randomly. Then, using bright colours, colour in each section like your very own mindfulness colouring.


Time Zones



Follow this link and learn all about the time zones around the world.


Complete the fun activities after the video.




Texture is the feel or appearance of something.


Outside all around you are different materials and textures. With a piece of paper and a colouring pencil or crayon, go outside and place the paper against any object that has an interesting or different texture. Rub the pencil over the paper and the pattern should appear.

Do that with lots of different materials and you will create your own texture masterpiece!



Plant Watch!


Have a look at some of the plants in your garden or on your walk. What is different about them and what is the same? Draw and label each part of the plants you see and see if you can research the name of it using the internet.




Research what a pollinator is and explain why bees are so important.


Create a poster you can put in your window to tell everyone how important bees are and what we can do to save them!




Do some research on natural and artificial light. Here is a video that might help you:



Create a poster about light sources. On one half, show natural light sources (list them and draw pictures) and do the same on the other half with artificial light sources.

This week and next, we are looking at Hinduism. Use the BBC lesson to help you find out about this religion. There are a couple of videos and a quiz.
