1. Write the Science and D.T L.O: I can show my initial ideas for designing a super bug.
2. Look at the following diagram below that shows the transfer of energy. The aphid predators we have been looking at are killed and eaten by predators.
3. Watch the videos below of animals attacking (in order to eat or kill other animals) and defensive (in order to protect itself from being eaten or killed) 'superpowers'.
We're going to start to design a super bug that destroys aphids, but also has defensive features to stop it being killed and eaten by predators.
4. Split your page in half either vertically or horizontally.
5. On one half write the subheading Attacking Features.
6. On the other half write the subheading Defensive Features.
7. Draw and label the superpower features your superbug could have. It's a good idea to think of lots of possible features and then you can choose your favourite features for your final design bug next week.
Write the Science and D.T L.O: I can draw a scientific diagram magnifying predatory features.
1. Watch the video.
2. Choose two aphid predators from yesterday.
3. Using your notes, videos, texts, and diagrams from yesterday...
Yesterday we thought about the dangers of an aphid infestation. Many countries find it difficult to grow food due to their climate and an infestation of aphids could wipe out any crops and plants meaning there would be no food. No need to worry because their are mini beats that feed on aphids and keep nature in balance.
1. Write the Reading and Science L.O: I can identify why these creatures are successful predators
2. Using the sources of information, make notes on how each aphid predator preys on aphids. Write the name of the aphid predator as the subheading then make notes underneath.
We are starting a mini project called Beast Creator
Write the Geography and Science L.O: I can consider the affects of aphids.
1 . Using google maps, your knowledge of the ancient Egyptians and where they grew their crops and your knowledge gained from the allotment topic, write a list of countries in which it would be difficult to grow food.
2. Watch the video about aphids.
3. Read the text about aphids.
4. What problems could arise from an aphid infestation?
Write the date and Geography L.O: I can identify lines of latitude and longitude
1 . Use the video below to create a sphere.
2. Make the sphere look like the earth by adding land and sea and colouring if you have colours.
3. Add the Prime Meridian by drawing a vertical line down the middle.
4. Label the followings lines and the number of degrees

1 Write the Science L.O: I can compare and contrast life cycles.
2. Click on the link to 'life cycles' below and watch the four videos and make any notes. You will need these notes for tomorrow's activity.
3. Have a go at the 'life cycles quiz' by clicking the link below.
1. Write the Science L.O: I can draw and label a scientific diagram.
2. Click on the link below and go to 3 minutes 55 seconds to watch the video about the life cycle of a butterfly.
3. Write and underline the type of metamorphosis a butterfly goes through below your L.O.
4. Create your own life cycle of a butterfly showing the different stages and how they go from one stage to another.
Here's some interesting stuff...
"Dancing in the Street" is a song written by Marvin Gaye, William "Mickey" Stevenson and Ivy Jo Hunter. It first became popular in 1964 when recorded by Martha and the Vandellas, whose version reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the USA, and peaked at No. 4 in the UK Singles Chart. It is one of Motown's signature songs and is the group's premier signature song. Have a listen. What else happened in the 1960s?
David Bowie, who wrote and recorded A Space Oddity (remember?), recorded Dancing in the Street in 1985 with Mick Jagger, who is the singer for the pop group The Rolling Stones. They recorded it to raise money for Live Aid. The money raised helped many starving families in Ethiopia, Africa. Listen by clicking below, and think about which of the two versions you like best, and why.
The Motown record company made and sold the Martha and the Vandellas version of Dancing in the Streets. The Four Tops were another group who were signed up with Motown. The song below has some similarities with Dancing in the Street. What do you think the similarities are?
The video shows a turntable, also called a record player, with the record of 'I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch), performed by The Four Tops, playing on it. From the 1920s to the 1980s, turntables and records (made from a plastic called vinyl) were the most popular way of listening to recorded music. Why do you think records were so popular?
'Motown' is a nickname for a US city called Detroit. It is a shortening of 'Motor Town'. It was called this because it had many car factories. The biggest of these were General Motors and Ford. The factories were massive, and many of the factory workers were the descendants of slaves who had, a long time before, been brought to America. The Motown record company is very famous for promoting black artists like Stevie Wonder, The Jackson Five and Diana Ross.

1. Write the Science L.O: I can draw and label a scientific diagram.
2. Click on the link below to watch the video about the life cycle of a dragonfly.
3. Write and underline the type of metamorphosis a dragonfly goes through below your L.O.
4. Look at the cycles below, use their layout to create your own life cycle of a dragonfly showing the different stages and how they go from one stage to another.
Below the pictures of different cycles is a link to an activity on Espresso which may help you with your life cycle.
1. Write the Science L.O: I can identify a habitat using facts about a creature.
2. Read the text below carefully. (you can zoom in by using the small blue dot next to the percentage sign at the top of the document)
3. Look at the pictures below and using the text answer the question 'Who lives in a house like this'. Use a quote from the text.
4. Explain how you made the link.
E.g but not correct. 7) Crocodile. "Crocodiles live in the murky waters of rivers and lakes". The picture shows muddy water, which looks like a small lake because I can see the bank all the way around it.
1. Write the Science L.O: I can use a classification key.
2. Turn your page so it is landscape (long top and bottom, short sides)
3. Using a ruler and a pencil, have a go at drawing out the classification key below.
4. For each minibeast (one at a time) start at the top of your flow diagram and work down the questions. (worm, butterfly, spider, wasp, snail and centipede)
5. Once you have all your minibeasts in the correct place, use the 2nd classification key below to label what type of minibeast it is. Be careful because the questions are slightly different so you will have to cross reference and think carefully.

1. Write the French L.O: I can give directional instructions in French.
2. Watch the first 30 seconds of the video below to learn the pronunciation of 'go straight', 'turn right' and 'turn left' in French (You don't need to know the crossing, traffic lights and u turn). Have a go at repeating them.
3. Write down the instructions in French to direct the bee bot around the maze.
1. Write the Science and Geography L.O: I can draw and label a map using a key.
2. Below is a sequence of pictures which shows the same place from 'reality' to a 'birds eye view' to a 'map' to a 'sketch map'.
3. Decide where you are going to go on a minibeast hunt garden/street/local park you could also use your bug hotel.
4. Imagine you are a bird looking down and have a go at sketching a map of your chosen place (you could use google maps to help).
5. Look at the map and key below. A key allows you to see where a particular feature is/was found.
6. Go on your minibeast hunt, use a key to plot where you found the minibeast e.g you may find 3 spiders all in different places, you could draw a spider in the key and then draw the spiders on the map in the places you found them.
