As this is the introduction to the topic the first session has a lot to cover. You may wish to do this over the space of a few days. This term we are going to be thinking about living things and their habitats. Watch this short clip which shows lots of different habitats. Have a think about what you want to find out about different habitats. There are lots of different ways, in science, that you can use to find things out. You can - do a survey, do a test, classify things, investigate over time, use a secondary source and look for patterns. Today I want you to do a survey. Go outside (with your adult!) either in your garden or the nearest open space. How many living things can you find? What about non-living? When you come back, get a piece of paper, divide it in half and record what you Next time we will think about different habitats within our outside space. Meanwhile here are a few more clips to watch about different habitats. 

See below for an exciting live event that is happening Friday 15th.



Next Friday 15th January at 11am we’ll be presenting a short lesson from the Paignton Zoo!
The lesson will be designed for KS2 pupils exploring habitats, and the animals that live in them - but all children are of course welcome to watch.

Including: What is a habitat? How could we describe the habitats? Which habitats would the zoo animals inhabit in the wild, and how would that affect the way they live?

It will be presented by Matt, from our Education team, with a live Q&A at the end. The video lesson will be shared via Teams (anyone with or without Teams will be able to watch) and we'll share the viewing link with you on our Paignton Zoo facebook page next Friday morning!



We are going to investigate the special book Christians use; The Bible

Use the RE:quest video link below to find out all about the Bible.


After the video have a think about why do Christians read the Bible? How do Christians decide what is right or wrong? What things help you decide what is right and wrong?


If you have a children’s Bible at home read the story of the Good Samaritan from the New Testament . If you don't, click on the link and listen to the story online.


Then using the pictures below cut out the pictures and stick them in the correct order. An alternative to this would be to draw the Good Samaritan story in your own six boxes.




This term we are getting active and enjoying gymnastics. Click on the link below to find out how you can join in at home.


Joe Wicks is doing his workouts again! Here is a link to his youtube channel where he will be streaming live at 9am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Join in and get active! Although he will be live at 9am he will be posting the videos on his channel so you can do them at other times too, if 9am isn't convenient for you!



We have our own brilliant 'Get Active' P.E web page. Click on the Children's link and scroll down to the Get Active tab. There you will find lots of fun activities you can do at home either on your own or with family members. It's brilliant!


In History today we are comparing Queen Elizabeth II with Queen Victoria. Follow the links below to watch two powerpoints now. After you have watched the powerpoints have a go at filling in as many of the empty boxes as you can in the comparison sheet (see link below) some of the information you need will not be in the powerpoint. Can you think of another way to find out? Remember we talked about 'secondary sources' as part of science? Maybe search on the internet or if you have any history books at home you could use them?

Starting on Monday 11th January the BBC will be launching a new service called Lockdown Learning which will be available on terrestrial TV. Take a look at this weeks schedule here.
