Environmental and Sustainability 2

Last week I hope you learned a little more about environmental concerns and sustainability. This week I would like to put your own thoughts / case forward for looking after the environment.

I am sure you have often heard ‘grown ups’ going on about the environment (myself included). Perhaps you were left thinking what has this got to do with me? What am I supposed to do about it? Is this not a government matter? It’s not my fault!

I am sure you realise we can all do something, that it is all our concerns and in fact it is actually more important for you than it is for your parents (because like me they are old!)

Task - I want you to plan an assembly that your form could present to the school sections. You can use power Point, just write things to say and perhaps include some pictures. You can choose your own topic, perhaps ‘How you can make a difference’ or ‘Single use plastics’ or Global warming and greenhouse gases. Back up your views with facts and aim to be persuasive. Work can be submitted to me via email: b.hull@waltonledale.lancs.sch.uk

 

Create a ‘Guide to Textiles at WLD’ which could be given to the new Year 7 before starting in September. Create on an A4 piece of paper.

  • What Health & Safety rules do you think they should definitely know?
  • What textiles skills would you recommend them practicing before starting at WLD?
  • Was there anything you wish you had known before starting Textiles?

Illustrate your guide with pictures and diagrams which help to explain your advice.

 

Cooking Methods

Research 3 of the following methods of cooking and produce your work on a word document then email it to my school email address.

Stir fry, braising, shallow frying, poaching, steaming, deep frying and boiling. 

Write about the benefits of the three methods you choose. The negatives if there are any.  What foods can be cooked using these methods.  How these methods work/what happens to the food when you cook the food.  Add pictures and any other facts you find interesting.

OM

This week you should be thinking about your progress in OM this year. You should evaluate your strengths and think about how you wish to make improvements next term within Humanities. You should also think about the skills you have developed and the knowledge you have gained and how this can support you within History, Geography and Religious Studies in year 8. You should think about the future and how the skills and knowledge you have developed this year could link to future careers. This evaluation will be sent to you on a PowerPoint document and will also be saved on Teams. Here you will be asked to create a new and improved ‘superlearner’ showing your progress from the beginning of year 7. Please send your work to your OM teacher by the end of the week. Have a lovely summer!

PE

Explore: Research the game of Tchoukball. Within this game, shooting is a critical skill. Find a ball that bounces. Stand opposite a wall. How many different ways can you throw the ball against a wall? Can you get the ball to rebound so you don’t have to move. Try throwing the ball with your right hand, your left hand, an underarm throw, an overarm throw, two hands, one hand and a bouncing throw. Which throw gives you the most power and accuracy? Now take three steps back and take three steps before you release the ball. Try jumping before you release the ball, and can you hit the same spot? 

 

Practice: You will need a family member. Get your family member to throw the ball against a wall, can you catch it before it hits the floor? Swap roles with your family member. How many catches can you make in 1 minute? In this sport, you are allowed three steps before you release the ball. This time repeat the drill but take three steps before you release the ball. Was their more power in your throw?

 

Develop: Place two boxes either side of you. In this sport, you need to throw the ball at a trampoline like frame and make sure the ball hits the floor before an opponent can catch it. Can you practice your technique and get the ball to land in the box? What kind of throw will you use to increase power, and if it was a trampoline frame? Ensure that the ball hit the floor afterwards. Challenge a family member, how many times can you get the ball into the box compared to them?

 

ICT

All work is set on Doddle. This week’s work includes revision tasks and so students are revisiting topics previously touched on throughout the year.

Please read through all presentations carefully and complete the assessment quizzes as fully as you can.

 

Art

End of Year Quiz! You will be sent a PowerPoint quiz by your Art teacher, either by email or on Teams – so please check both.

 

The quiz will cover all the areas of Art that you have learnt this school year. For some of the tasks you will need to “edit” the PowerPoint by typing or moving shapes etc. so make sure you download a copy of the file first.

 

Try your best and don’t forget to send your answers to your Art teacher when you’ve finished!

Drama

KS3 Drama Booklet

· Your teacher should now have sent you or told you where to find the KS3 Drama Booklet that you can work on up until the summer.

· Try and focus 40mins – 1hr a week on your Drama work, think of it as a lesson.

· You can choose the order in which you complete each activity, but focus on 1 a week.

· If you can’t print the booklet do not worry just create the work in any means you can.

· There are some actual booklets at school in reception if somebody can come and collect or Mrs McLeod will send some out in the post if you let her know.

· There are some extension tasks at the back that you can work on if you have more time.

 

Enjoy the work and let your teachers know how you are getting on even if it is just a quick message in teams or by email.
