The Seasons.

This term in science we are going to be looking at the seasons.

 

Each season has 3 months in each. The Winter months are December,January and February. Spring months are March,April and May. Summer months are June,July and August. Autumn months are September,October and November.

Can you remember how many months are in a year?

How many days are in a week?

We are in the month of June which is in Summer. We need to protect ourselves from the hot sun outside and the short video below will explain all about what we have to do.

 

 

 

Here is a reminder of what you need to keep yourselves safe and protected from the sun outside.

Can you choose which weather we get in what season?

Depending on the season we wear different clothes, can you say what season you will wear these clothes?

Challenge

Lets describe the seasons ?

Here are some words to start you off…. warm,cloudy,hot,green and fresh.

Can you think of any of your own? Maybe you could put them into a sentence?

Can you remember what describing words are called?

Maybe you could draw a picture of one of the seasons and send it in for us to look at :

Geography learning

We are learning this half term in Geography all about different places in the UK and their human and physical features.

Rivington Pike is a hill on Winter Hill, part of the West Pennine Moors at Rivington, Chorley in Lancashire England.

Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales. It is located in Snowdonia national park.

Does anything look different or similar between the two places?

Maybe you could do some research to find out the following information:

Rivington Pike has a tower, how tall is it?

How high is Snowdon?

How long does it take to climb Snowdon?

Are Rivington and Snowdon near Bolton?

You could use :  

 

What is the climate like at Rivington and Snowdon.

Is it the same or different? If it is different do you know why?

You could go for a walk up Rivington but would hike up Snowdon as it is much steeper and harder to climb.

Here is a picture of myself climbing Snowdon. Can you see what equipment or clothes I am wearing, choose from the pictures below. What else do you think I would need?

Physical Geography is the Earths natural features, such as a mountain,grass and the coastline.

Human Geography is everything that is made and built by man.

 

Are these pictures of physical or human geography? Can you sort them correctly?

I would love to see pictures of you out walking and spotting lots of human or physical features.

Phonics Fun

Good morning 6K

Today we are practising our phonics learning

We are looking at the letters of the alphabet.

Have lots of fun finding and looking for objects in your house or garden, lets see how many you can find!

 

Here are some challenges for you all to have a go at doing:

  • Can you practise writing your letters in different media? Here is an example that I have done, can you tell me what it says?
  • I have used stones to trace over the letter, felt tips, paint, shaving foam and cornflour.

 

Can you sound out and write the names of these CVC words?

Find words with the “igh” grapheme in.

What are the alternative spellings for “ay”, write them down and try to create as many words as you can.

Send any pictures to: friendsofladywood@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

Andy Goldsworthy

This term we are going to be learning all about an artist and sculptor called Andy Goldsworthy

.

He is well known for work created from natural materials. Andy makes these in forests,cities,lakes and fields.They are known as land art.

Some of the natural materials that he uses to make his sculptures are: leaves,twigs,pebbles,rocks,flowers,grass and pine cones.

Here are a few examples of his work

I went along to a forest area to get some inspiration and collected lots of natural materials.

Have a look at the artwork I created, I had lots of fun making these!
