Welcome to a new week Winterton. (week beginning Mon.12.10.20)


Hello and welcome to another week filled with learning!

Here are our links to the work we will be covering this week. We will start the week in literacy by recapping some grammar work. Finally we will be writing our Hot Task for our invented portal story, ready to do a short unit of work on Monsters next week. Your spellings for this week are listed under the literacy links. Our numeracy is more number work and in science we are looking at the constellations and the moon. For our topic work we are continuing looking at plastic pollution.

We have been studying different theories about how the planets orbit the sun. In this lesson we look at the stars and constellations seeing how the invention of the telescope improved the evidence that astronomers had.

Topic:

Key Question 5: How do geographers estimate how many plastic items there are on a typical beach?

Watch 5 short videos on the BBC about the problem of plastics – especially watch the video about the Great Pacific Garbage patch and what’s being done about it.

Background: Microplastic pollution is becoming an increasingly serious problem on beaches all around the United Kingdom.  It is particularly problematic in the United Kingdom because the country is an island – surrounded by seas and oceans on all sides.   Today every beach such as the one in Resource 20 has evidence of some microplastic pollution – but how do geographers go about getting a more accurate idea of how much is there? That’s what this lesson is all about. Today, you will work as a geographer does to find the answer to that very question.
