Design and Technology
Jack gets given some beans which turn into the beanstalk. Can you design a plant pot for the beans?
- Draw the outline of the plant pot
- Complete your own unique design
- Think about what material it would be made from
- If you have a plant pot at home, can you decorate it and plant a bean to create your own beanstalk?
Our bodies are made mainly of water and water plays an important role in keeping us healthy. We must make sure that we drink enough water every day to help us grow big and strong and stop us being dehydrated. The amount of water we need depends on lots of factors such as our age, the weather and exercise.
Can you find out the answers to these questions:
- Why do our bodies need water?
- How do our bodies lose water throughout the day?
- How much water do 6/7 year olds need to drink each day?
Can you keep a water chart of how many glasses you drink each day? A sheet is below if you would like to print it off but you can draw your own at home too. You could use a measuring jug to measure how many millilitres your glass holds and work out how many millilitres or litres of water you drink each day!
Have a go at this quiz see how good your water knowledge is!
As usual, please send any work to email@example.com. It’s lovely to see what you are up to! We miss you all and are looking forward to seeing you soon!
