Literacy

Yesterday you were thinking about what was behind the door in the Pobble image. Today you will be reading the next part of the story (below) and thinking about what will happen next.

Read the next part of the story:
After a while of exploring this marvellous place, the mysterious figure heard a noise. There was the familiar knock of the bolt on the door and the creak of the hinges as the door swung open. What could the mysterious figure do? Should they allow themselves to be found trespassing? Or should they try to escape without being seen?

Activity: What do you think the mysterious figure should do? Write the next part of the story explaining what the figure does.

Geography/D&T Project Challenge

This project will run over 5 sessions.
Your task will be to create an environmentally friendly mode of transport for the public. This mode of transport could take the place of buses, trains, cars or planes. Let your imagination run wild!

First of all, what does it mean to be environmentally friendly?
Research what environmentally friendly means and what transport is out there that is environmentally friendly at the moment.

Some things to think about:

  • What does environmentally friendly actually mean?
  • Is there any transport out there at the moment that claims it is environmentally friendly? If yes, how is it run?
  • What fuel does it use?
  • What is it made from?
  • Where do those materials come from?
  • Is it safe to use?
  • How environmentally friendly is it?
