Friday 24th May 2019

It's half term! Hooray! We hope you have a wonderful week - stay safe and make sure to get out and enjoy the sunshine. 

Your Boudicca projects were lovely and we were very impressed by the level of hard work that clearly went into them. Well done. 

For your half term homework, we would like you to visit a beach somewhere in the world (even just for a day trip) and go exploring! Please take a photograph to show the fun that you had. If you are unable to visit a beach, research a famous beach somewhere in the UK and create a poster all about the geography of that particular site. For example:

- what kind of beach is it? 

- are there any interesting geographical features e.g. caves/arches?

- where in the country is this beach? 

- why is the beach so popular? 

- can you discover what kind of rock can be found at this beach? 

- what ocean does the beach connect with? 

(These questions should not limit you - think beyond these please).

NO SPELLINGS TO LEARN

Friday 10th May 2019

Your homework for the next two weekends is to produce a small project on the famous Celtic queen, Boudicca (can be spelt 'Boudica').
