Spring 2 Week 1 22nd February
Welcome back after the half term break – we hope you managed to have a well earned break and that you all had some quality family time together.
This half term, we will be taking more of a Geography focus as we begin to learn about Volcanoes and how they are formed. Our hook day will begin with us making models of volcanoes and erupting them, as well as locating some key areas on a map – including Pompeii in Italy and Catania in Sicily where Mount Etna has recently erupted.
Please find the work below for the week beginning 22nd February – including activities for the hook day and Art activities for Tuesday.
Monday 22nd February
We will be making a junk model volcano this morning – there will be a live session to welcome everyone back and to discuss potential ways to make your volcano. Then we will meet again later in the day to errupt them. Live lesson links will be on Dojo and Google classroom.
Videos to help with making a model
We will meet live to model how to use digimaps for schools. (Link on dojo) If you don’t have access to digimaps for schools, please see the paper copy of the activity below.
Tuesday 23rd February
We will meet live to look at the art hunt and clarify the vocabulary. We will also model the art activities for at home.
Look at the facts about Hadrian to find out a bit about him. Take a look at the Hadrian in profile sheet and really notice the difference between a forward facing Hadrian profile and a side profile.
Then follow the step by step instructions and have a go at drawing your own Hadrian in profile.
Once you have finished your Hadrian drawing, have a look at Hadrian’s wall.
