Friday 5th June
Activities for today!
Continue with the daily White Rose home learning activities for this week. You will find the worksheets if you scroll down. Friday has a family challenge that you might like to have a go at! If you have finished the activities, then please log in to MyMaths. Two new tasks have been set.
Hopefully you have chosen your sea creature and written some notes to help you write your report today. A report is like a fact file and gives the reader interesting information.
You need to write your report using these headings and layout:
(Title) All about ________________
Picture (Draw and colour a picture of your chosen sea creature)
What do they look like?
(Use lots of adjectives to describe them including verbs to describe how they move.)
What do they eat?
(Tell me how much they eat and where they find their food)
Do they have any predators?
(Are they scared of any other sea creature? Why? Use the conjunction ‘because’ to explain your answer)
(Tell me one amazing fact about your creature that will blow my mind!! Don’t forget to use an exclamation mark!)
We would love to read your sea creature reports, so do send photos in to

1. Why does the crab like walking sideways?
2. Why do the turtles crawl up on the beach from the water?
3. How do dolphins speak?
4. Who thinks she is the prettiest in the sea?
5. Why do you think the shark wants creatures to 'come a bit closer' to its jaws?
6. What was your favourite creature in the book?
7. Did you spot any rhyming words e.g. why and spy?
Later in the week we would like you to collect some facts and write a report about a sea creature of your own choice! Perhaps you could start investigating some creatures before you make your choice. There are some links in the Quest section below.
Quest - Science
There are lots of different types of animals. They can be grouped by their characteristics that make them similar. Click here to watch a bbc clip and find out about fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds and mammals.
There is an activity attached below for grouping animals.
So, what makes a fish a fish? How is it different to other groups of animals?
Find below a variety of clips about fish and sea creatures. We hope these will help you to find the creature you want to write your report about later in the week.
Also if you do get the chance to go for a walk with an adult you may be able to visit a steam or river and observe some fish in real life (though, please take care near water!)
Have a lovely day and enjoy your fishy learning!
