Week 10

This Way, That way - Maps & exploration Topic

Home Learning - Week Beginning 1st June


This week's topic-web is designed to get you all thinking about Maps & Exploration. This theme is about considering the idea of exploration and thinking about how and why we map the world around us. There are lots of activities linked to map-making, or map-reading and a few linked to exploration and great explorers. 

Whatever year group you are in, you can work together on aspects of the topic theme. As with previous weeks, just select activities from the topic web that you would like to do - either on your own, with your brother/sister, or together as a family.

As always, we love seeing what you have been up to, so remember to e-mail your teacher with pictures. Thanks to all the children and parents who have already sent things through to us - we love seeing and hearing all about your lock-down experiences and Home Learning!


In addition to the topic-web work, your teachers will have set you Maths and English work that is specific to your Year group / Class.

See the notes below the topic web.

Over this next week we would love to hear from everyone in our classes, all about what you have been up to during half term and anything linked to this topic. Don't forget you can email us to ask questions about any aspect of your Home Learning.

Why not check out the galleries in each of the topic folders on the 'Home Learning' page (under the parents tab) on the MOSPS website to see what your friends are getting up to.







We have set you some more challenges on Education City. Make sure to check your homework section and complete the challenges.


For your writing task this week, we would like you to design your own deep-sea creature!




Watch this video for some inspiration:


Draw and label your creature, then choose a task to complete:

- Write a short non-chronological report about your creature

- Write a short story involving your creature

- Write a diary entry from your creature’s point of view!


Please remember to send us your writing – we love seeing what you’ve been doing!






This week, we would like you to complete the comprehension tasks about Ernest Shackleton, a famous explorer.


There are three levels of challenge, so make sure to pick the one that is right for you.
