Week Beginning 8th February 2021

Monday 8th February 2021



LO:  To be able to consider how floods affect people.
I can remember to:

 - read the information and watch the videos.
 - discuss effects of the flooding on the Cumbrian people.
 - sort the nine statements into the diamond by order of importance.
 * explain why you’ve chosen that order.


Today, we are looking at the effects of flooding on human beings in closer detail. We will be performing a case study of the flooding caused by Storm Desmond in early December 2015 and the effects that it had upon the people of Cumbria.


Where is Cumbria? Look at Google Maps to see where in North England the county lies.


There are quite a few videos to watch today. I've created links them in the PPT presentation and have organised them into 'must watch' and 'could watch'.


Once you've watched all of the videos and read through the PPT, then have a go at the Diamond 9 activity. I'd love to see some photos of how you've sorted the statements and a few sentences to explain why you think some statements affected more people than others. 

Well Done on todays Geography Y4. You've all put a lot of thought into this.

Apologies if you have already completed this lesson. I did make my changes to last week's lesson before scheduled on the timetable, but I know a few of you were very organised in getting your learning completed. If you have already completed this week's task, maybe you could try and complete a potrait in one of the other styles that we evaluated two weeks ago:



This week we are continuing our artist study of M.C. Escher and using his 'Hand with Reflecting Sphere' as our inspiration.


L/O: I am able to draw a reflected image


I can remember to -

choose a reflective utensil

draw your hand and the utensil

draw yourself and your surroundings inside the utensil


When you have finished your artwork, you can share a photo of your work here

Please evaluate your work here


First thing that we need to focus on is how to draw your hands. Here is another amazing Escher drawing, which focuses on his hands:

PE & Music

Pancake Day (or Shrove Tuesday) is on Tuesday 16th February. This day is a Christian Holy Day that marks the first day of Lent and will be celebrated by many in February half term. So, I thought as our last PE lesson before the holidays we would get active with some pancake flipping movements.

**Make sure you have lots of space**

**Also, please do not use real pancakes in this video**
