Easter Holiday Home Learning Project   

 

Renewable energy and Homes of the future.

 

    One of North Crescent Primary School’s Curriculum Drivers  is:

     Planet Earth - What is our place in the world and how should we live? We need communication skills and understanding to listen, learn and respond to what is around us, here and now, before and beyond.

    We would like children to engage with Science by building links between home and school. The Home Learning project is for families to try together, to create moments of awe and wonder, reinforce the idea that science can happen anywhere and give children valuable opportunities to talk about science beyond the classroom.

    It is important that children are aware of the problems caused by our growing demand for energy, as well as the different types of renewable energy that are available to us. Perhaps we can inspire a generation of scientists that will devise cleaner and more efficient ways to provide the world with all the energy it needs!

    Project details:

    • Make a model of a home of the future.  How will this home save or produce its own energy?
    • Make a model of a way of producing renewable energy e.g. wind turbine, solar panel etc..
    • Draw a design for a home of the future, label it and add an explanation of how this home will save or produce its own energy.  
    • Create a presentation using Microsoft Powerpoint or Google Slides about our theme of ‘Renewable Energy and Homes of the Future’.
    • Make an ‘energy audit’ to see what ( and  how much) energy you use at home. Could you find ways to save energy at home?

    This Home Learning Project is to be brought in to school or emailed to homelearning@northcrescent.org  by Monday 25th April.

    The children will be sharing their projects with the whole school.

    Please have fun with your projects and I am looking forward to seeing them.

    Mrs. Barber

     

    Resources:

    Here are some videos and pictures that might help you:

      

    All children in Year 2 must know their 2,5, and 10 times tables fluently.

    Please practise these tables with your child so they can give you an instant answer when asked random table facts. E.g 2x10=          4x5=             8x2=       etc…

    If your child has to work out the answer they do not know their times tables to the level expected in the National Curriculum.
