Plants: Watch these videos about the things seeds need and the parts of a plant. If you have grown your own seeds at home, perhaps you could draw and label the parts of the plant and explain how they have changed since you planted them.

Please complete a project about a habitat of your choice. If you have a brother

or sister in school, you can complete one project together.

You might like to choose:

· a cold land

· the rainforest

· under the sea

· an island

· British woodland

Here are some ideas of activities you might like to complete for your project:

Expressive Arts and Design 

Create a 3D model or painting of your habitat. What colours might you choose?

Design and make a den/shelter to protect yourself in your habitat. How will you make it strong/waterproof/warm?
Imagine the sounds you might hear in your habitat (swishing trees, howling wind, bubbles). Can you recreate these sounds using body percussion? Perhaps you could put the sounds together into a performance.

Understanding the World 

What animals and plants would you find in this habitat? What information can you find out about these animals and plants?

 How is your chosen habitat different to our homes? What is the climate/weather like in the habitat? If you were going to visit your habitat, what would you pack in your bags?

As a writer Write a postcard imagining you are in your chosen habitat. What can you see and hear? How does it make you feel?
