Our Topic this half term is Geography based and is the French Riviera.  We have looked at our coast line in England and now will move to looking at a coastline in Europe to compare.  You can use an atlas, Google Earth or the answer sheet to help you.  Here are your tasks for this week.  


Vocabulary you will need to know this week-

Transpiration- As plants absorb water from the soil, the water moves from the roots through the stems to the leaves. Once the water reaches the leaves, some of it evaporates from the leaves, adding to the amount of water vapor in the air. This process of evaporation through plant leaves is called transpiration

French Impressionism- Impressionism is a style of painting which began in France in the late 19th century. Impressionist painting shows life-like subjects painted in a broad, rapid style, with brushstrokes that are easily seen and colours that are often bright. 


I have added a PowerPoint to the website so you can revise the Water Cycle you were taught in Year 3.

1.  Read the information about The Water Cycle and answers the questions provided.  The answers are also there to help you mark it.

2.  Cut out the labels and match them to the correct part of the Water Cycle diagram.  Or you could draw your own and label it.  




Look at

Think about how to create texture in art.  Remember last week’s work on Monet- what are Monet’s famous pieces of art?  Which textures did he use?  

Can you use different things in your house or at school to make different textures?  You might do rubbings on wood or leaves etc- or use different objects like old toothbrushes or netting etc.

Can you recreate one of Monet’s pieces of art thinking about texture.



Our RE topic for this half term is Islam.  We will begin by looking at other places of worship and comparing to the Christian church we looked at in Autumn Term.  Look at the various images of Mosques from around the world on the PowerPoint or read the information provided.  Can you see any similarities with the features of a Christian church?

Label the diagram of a mosque with all of the features.
