Watch Sinking of the Titanic – only up to 6:30 mins here:

 

Sinking of the Titanic (1912) - YouTube

 

Write down key facts about the sinking as you watch.

Imagine you are a news reporter in 1912 and you have just received the information that Titanic has sunk.

Write a news report explaining to your readers the events of the tragedy.

Once you have written your news report, if possible, you may wish to film your report as if it is aired on BBC news. An example of a completed news report can be found here:

Year 6 Maths

 

Today, you have another lesson about 'percentage of'.

Remember to use the information you have found out and used this week to help you with today's tasks.

Science

 

In the last few lessons, you have been learning about animal evolution and the impact humans have had on animal and plant life. You have also learned about the impact humans might have in the future.

 

Your task today is to research an endangered animal. Imagine that your chosen animal is already extinct. Create a leaflet about it. In your leaflet you will need to explain to the reader (who might never have seen or known about your 'extinct' animal) all about your animal: its habitat, what it looked like, why it became extinct. You could also think about what could have been done to protect this animal to stop it becoming extinct.

 

This link will take you to pages about animals that are already extinct. It might help you with ideas on the type of information you will need to think about for your leaflet.
