Today, you will be demonstrating what you understand about area, by following instructions to create your own zoo. You just need a piece of paper and a ruler. Try to fit the different animal enclosures onto an A4 piece of paper. You can label each enclosure with the animal and write down the measurment of their living area. If you would like, you could decorate after!

You may need the grid paper below. You can imagine each square is 1cm. If not, you could measure the shapes, or even draw out your own grid paper. 

There is a quiz on Google classroom, if you would like to demonstrate your multiplication and division knowledge. 


Please get someone to test you on your Unit 7 spellings.


Who is David Attenborough? What is he famous for?

Watch this David Attenborough video:

Today we will be creating a paragraph where we use David Attenborough’s wise words to back up our ideas. To do this we must use speech marks to show that the man himself said exactly these words.

What rules do you remember about speech?

  • We need to start with our speech marks
  • Then we must use a Capital before writing the exact words that David said
  • We must use a , ! ? before closing speech
  • Don’t use a capital for ‘said’

So we could say:

“We must immediately halt deforestation,” declared David Attenborough.

If we want to up-level this sentence, we could add an embedded clause with extra information. For example:

David Attenborough, an English Naturalist, declared, “We must immediately halt deforestation!”

Finally, we must conclude our work. You need a separate paragraph for this.

How will we end dramatically?

What could the readers do to help?

What will happen if no one does anything?

Now before you upload your work on Google classroom, please edit. Check you have the following features:


We will finish the week with two short sessions:


Don’t forget to take some time out to get active.

Here are some options:

Dance based activities:

We have talked about our behaviour in the blue, yellow and red zones, which can make us feel uncomfortable.

  • Image result for Zones of Regulation Colors

Now we need to figure out some techniques which we can use to help us regulate our zones, potentially helping us get back into the green zone.

Do you have a strategy to help you cool down?

How do you know that you are calm?

What do you look like?

How does your body feel?

Have a go at the calming activities in the PowerPoint below to see if they help you calm down. Remember, you can always use them if you ever move out of the green zone (both at school and at home).



Fill out the toolbox worksheet. How can you help yourself when you find yourself in different zones? I have included ideas in the PowerPoint.
