MONDAY

 

In today’s lesson we are going to use our knowledge of bees, their habits and how important they are to write a poem about them. You can choose to use one of the templates below or you can devise your own poem. Why not have a look at the link below and listen to the famous author, Michael Rosen, talk about how he writes poems before you begin to see if he inspires some ideas.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KP09IeePjPc

Here’s some of the different types of poem you may want to look at:

 

You might want to write an acrostic poem ( a poem that uses the initial letter of a word). Have a look at the examples below. You could use these or make up your own.

TUESDAY

In today’s lesson we are going to consider how we can use the information from the audit  that we did last week to improve the areas around school and encourage wildlife. We would like you to draw a plan of the area you’re going to improve, include the improvements you’d like and label it clearly to show what you’ve included and how those things will improve the biodiversity of the area.

Here’s an example of what your plan might look like:

WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY

When areas are given over to wildflowers, they need to be protected. To show that they are to be left wild and not mown or trimmed, blue hearts are sometimes hung. This shows all gardeners that they are wildflower areas. We would like you to design and make your own using clay or salt dough. Have a look at some of the ideas below to get you started.

FRIDAY

Today is the final day of our Eco Warriors Adventure! We need to decide on an action plan to ensure that the biodiversity of our school improves. What can we do? Complete the plan below to show your ideas. Maybe we’ll be able to put some of them in place today!

Tuesday: Our focus for this two week mini-adventure is Eco Warriors. We are going to work towards writing a persuasive letter to the governors to convince them to allow us to keep bees and have a pond in our forest area to support biodiversity.

Tuesday's Challenges: In today’s lesson, we are going to identify the features of a persuasive letter to help understand what is expected of you next week when you come to write your letter.

Mild: Find the features in the text.  Task

Spicy: Find the features in the textTask

Hot: Find the features in the text Task

Wednesday: Today, we are going to look at creating expanded noun phrases to use in our persuasive letter. Remember we are writing a letter to persuade governors to allow us to keep bees or a pond to develop biodiversity in the area.

Wednesday's Challenges: 

Mild:Think about your time in the forest and look at the pictures below. Write expanded noun phrases about these pictures using the sheet to help you. Task

Spicy: You are also going to create expanded noun phrases based on the forest, bees and ponds. However, can you add an adverb before your adjectives and extend with a prepositional phrase? Task

 Hot: Think about what you would like our forest area to look like, write a description of your dream forest area. Remember, we are focusing on convincing the governors to allow us to keep bees or build a pond so ensure you incorporate these into your descriptions. You may want to use the pictures for some inspiration. Task

Thursday: In today’s lesson, we are going to look at using conjunctions and adverbials for cohesion. This is to ensure that when we write our letter, we are able to link our ideas effectively.

Thursday's Challenges: 

Mild: Work with a partner to carry out research into why bees are so important. You can also use your knowledge from your mini-adventure lessons to generate your arguments.  Task

Spicy: Choose the question ‘Why are bees so important to the environment?’ or ‘How does a pond help support biodiversity?’ Research facts to support your points. Then, order your points using adverbs for cohesion. Remember to put your strongest points first and last. Task

Hot: Choose the question ‘Why are bees so important to the environment?’ or ‘How does a pond help support biodiversity?’ Research facts to support your points. Then, write an argument to present to the class tomorrow. Be sure to use conjunctions and adverbs for cohesion. Use these word banks to support you. Task

Friday: Today, we will continue our writing using conjunctions and adverbs for cohesion to create our well-structured arguments. Once we have finished writing our arguments, we will present them to the class. Does anybody have any counter arguments? Will you be prepared to answer these?

Friday's Challenges: 

Mild: Look at the arguments you created yesterday. Organise these arguments into points using adverbials and write your argument. Use this to support you. Once you are complete practice reading your argument aloud so you are ready to present it to the class. Task

Spicy: Use your ordering sheet from yesterday to create a well-structured argument which uses conjunctions and adverbs for cohesion. Be ready to present your argument to the class. Use the word banks to help you develop linking your ideas. Task

Hot: Continue writing your argument from yesterday. If you are finished get ready to present this to the class. Think of counter arguments which the class may have and try to prepare your responses. Be sure to use your conjunctions and adverbs for cohesion so your continue to support your arguments with evidence and continue with a formal tone. 

Good luck! Don’t forget to send photos of your work. We very much look forward to reading them!
