Phonics: Logon to Phonics hero https://phonicshero.com/ and complete the next activity.
Find out about the past tense. Watch this.
When we talk about the past we use a different tense and most verbs we change by adding the suffix ed. For example –
I look at the TV - I looked at the TV
I sniff the pizza – I sniffed the pizza.
Change these words to the past tense - listen, laugh, rock, brush, walk, talk. Change these sentences to the past –
I laugh at the TV.

Topic: Science: WALT: to perform simple tests.
Carry out a simple, comparative test, place 50ml of tap water in a shallow bowl alongside another bowl containing the same amount with a teaspoon of salt dissolved in. Each day examine the bowls, observing the changes that occur. Describe what remains when all of the water has evaporated. You will need to complete your conclusion later on in the week. Use the PDF to write up your experiemnt.
Did you know: Did you know that a teaspoon of sea water contains more microorganisms than there are people on the planet? Research how sea water is different from tap water and why it is salty.
The sea’s saltiness is due to minerals dissolved from surface rocks as rainwater runs over them. The salt also comes from underwater hydrothermal vents and volcanoes which release large amounts of dissolved minerals. Watch this.
Topic: WALT: Identify and classify.
Find out about seaweed. See PDF. How could you sort the different types, consider possible criteria, such as colour, wrinkled fronds and where it was found. Look closely, draw and label their observable properties. Find out about how seaweed is suited (adapted) to live in harsh coastal environments.
Note: Seaweed washed up on the beach is dead. Seaweed is a plant like algae and is not a true plant. Unlike land plants, seaweed has no roots, branches or leaves but has stipes (stems) fronds (leaves) and anchoring, root like holdfasts. Seaweed is a major food source for many marine creatures, such as limpets and sea urchins.
