Something a little easier?

Open the document called ‘sequencing events’ and sequence the events in time order.


Something a little harder?

Find out how many seconds there are in an hour.


Hint: think about how many seconds there are in a minute.

Then how many minutes there are in an hour.

You will need to use repeated addition (or multiplication if you know how to do it for this sum).

L.O. To understand how a body part works (understanding)

SC1: I can explain what a body part is for

SC2: I can ask questions about the body part

SC3: I can explain how the body part completes its function


Yesterday, you made a list of things you need to learn and things you want to know.


Spend 30 minutes finding the answers to these things. You could do this by researching online, using the search engine kiddle: Kiddle - visual search engine for kids or asking others around the house if they know. If you have any family or friends who might be experts such as doctors or nurses, you could ask an adult if you could phone or video call them to see what they know!


Write down your answers on your second page of your journal.

Any other body parts that you can now name, add to your picture on the front.


Task 2 – Become an expert


In order to deepen your knowledge on human body parts, choose one body part that you are interested in, for example the nose.


Complete a journal page all about the nose – please see my example below.


Firstly, explain what the purpose of the nose is.


Secondly, write down any questions you might have about the nose.


Finally, complete some research to find the answers to your questions and see if you can explain how the nose completes its function – this means how it does what it is supposed to do (smell and allow you to breathe through).

When we record your knowledge at the end of the week, you will be explaining what you have found out about the body part you have chosen so make sure you write it down clearly on your journal page.
