Problem Solving



Today's challenge



Copy today's words very carefully - character, mechanic, stomach

Circle the 'ch' sound - where in each word can you find it?

Practise these 3 spellings using a strategy that works for you.  Do you split words into coloured segments?  Do you speed spell and try to write the word as many times as you can in 60 seconds?  Do you look, say, cover, write, check?  Do you write the word backwards to concentrate on letter patterns?


Design Technology

Design and build a model tent using materials you can find in and around your home. You will need to build a frame first, from sticks, straws or even tightly rolled paper. How will you fix this together? How will you make it strong? What is the best shape to hold up your tent?



Then you will need to cover the frame with the waterproof material you identified in your science investigation. How will you attach this to your frame?


Evaluate your model when it is finished – is there anything that could be done better another time?



If you could go camping anywhere in the world where would it be? A mountain, a cave, the beach, a forest, somewhere snowy?  Where would you choose?


Give 3 clear reasons for your choice.
