Writing/ Geography Tasks for the week beginning 30th March
Below is a list of all the places reached through the sharing of our school rainbow last week, through the use of social media. Take a look at the list and consider the following:
Which places have you heard of already?
Which is the furthest place from here?
Do you know anyone who lives in these places?
Undertake some general research on the location of these places and then choose one of the following tasks:
- Write a report about one place including details of its human (people/ towns/ villages) and physical geography (mountains/ rivers/ lakes etc).
- Write a travel diary as if you had visited this place.
- Put together a travel brochure including useful information/ pictures etc
- Write a letter to someone who lives in this country telling them about you and the place where you live- how is it different/ the same?
Here's the list of places:
Brooklyn, New York
Christchurch, New Zealand
Nakhon Sawan (not sure where this is!)
Marsh Harbour, the Bahamas
Alameda County, USA
Polk County, USA
San Francisco, USA
These activities link to the topics of electricity, sound, forces, and changes of state and require simple equipment you may already have at home. Once you have tried the activities yourself, challenge yourself to record your findings using a scientific diagram in your yellow exercise book and to explain what you observed. We would love to see photos of the experiments in action and how you have recorded them!
Here is one possible activity to get you started. The rest can be downloaded below.
