A preposition is a word that tells you where or when something is in relation to something else. Examples of prepositions include words like after, before, on, under, inside and outside. Watch the video What is a preposition? - BBC Bitesize and complete the revision quiz – prepositions.

Today, you are going to be converting and comparing miles and kilometres. Click here https://vimeo.com/505789895 to access the White Rose video. A PowerPoint version has also been attached below. Complete the fluency, reasoning and problem solving – see resources below.
Today we are revisiting adaptation. Using marine habitats as an example, you will begin by thinking about the physical and behavioural adaptations of marine species and how they have evolved to survive in the marine environment.
Design a new species – Choose a habitat (desert, polar, rainforest) and either a predator or prey and design a new species which has adapted to survive in their habitat. There is an example on the PowerPoint (below) – a spiny skipper. When designing you will need to think about things like what will your species eat and how do they move. You can use the Internet to research species found in your chosen habitat for inspiration before designing your own species. You can be as imaginative as you like. The adaptations featured on your species should be labelled.
Extension activity – Discuss the potential impacts of environmental factors such as climate change or human activities such as habitat destruction or pollution on particular habitats and the species that live there.
