Topic Activities

For this topic, we are going to give you a few Topic activities to work your way through each week. Choose one and do a little bit of it each day, when you have completed it, move on to another one. You do not have to complete all of the activities.


Topic Activities - Week Beginning 04.05.2020

Activity 1 - Art

For this activity, we are going to be focusing on the second page in your Covid-19 Time Capsule booklet (see below). For this, you have to draw portraits of all of the people living in your house. To begin with, follow the steps in the document below in order to practice sketching portraits. When you're ready, you can fill in the sheet in your Time Capsule booklet. Remember to take your time with sketching and colouring!

Activity 2 - History

Like you will know from our English sessions, this week marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day. What do you know about VE Day at the moment? What does it mean? Why do we still celebrate it? 


Work through the PowerPoint below, with an adult at home. On each slide there are 'notes' below which give topics to talk about and ideas of videos to watch. At the end of the PowerPoint there are some ideas of different activities to do. Choose one (or more if you wish) to complete.

Activity 3 - Music

Why not try this BBC Daily Lesson Music activity, looking at pulse and rhythm. It looks at how you can use clapping (which we're all experts at now!) to find the pulse and rhythm of music. Why not try to find the pulse of songs you enjoy listening to? 

Activity 4 - Geography

At the moment, children all over the world are socially distancing and staying home from school, in order to stay safe. Lots of people are using video calls and phone calls to stay in touch with their families. You could even talk to family and friends in Australia and it would seem like they were right there with you! However, what would happen if you called someone in Australia, when it was the afternoon here? You might wake them up! Why do people around the world live in different time zones? Follow this BBC Lesson to find out more.
