English: Who is David Attenborough?

Can you find out who David Attenborough is and why he is famous? Use your findings from your research to make an information poster about his main achievements. 

Hint: there is a link between David Attenborough and sea-creatures....Can you find out what it is?

Maths:

Having listened to your feedback, some of you preferred the white rose maths, and some preferred the NCETM videos. So, I am going to offer a choice. You can either do the white rose or  the NCETM videos. There is no right or wrong option, it is what best suits you. Either lesson will benefit your child.

NCETM Year 3/4

Science: Why isn't rain salty?

It's experiment time! The water of our oceans and seas is salty, but rain isn't. Set up this experiment to discover why...

Mix a teaspoon of salt into 50ml (approx) of water and stir. What do you notice happens to the salt? In your exercise books, can you use some scientific vocabulary to explain what has happened?

Pour the salt water mixture into a shallow dish (e.g. a shallow bowl/plate/saucer) and leave on a sunny windowsill. What do you think will happen after a few days? In your exercise books, can you record your prediction?

You will need to check on your salt water daily and record your observations in your exercise books. What do you notice?

Hint: this does link to your knowledge of the water cycle that I have been reliably informed you have learned already....Forgotten it? Need a refresh? Click on the link below to remind yourself about the water cycle.
