Wednesday

Happy Wednesday, and happy Earth Day!

 

I thought that since it’s Earth Day today we could look at activities around this as this is what we would be doing at earthy type activities. Below are selection of suggested activities you can do today. There is a lot to choose from, you don't need to complete them all.

 

Warm ups

 

PE with Joe Wicks

If you fancy a change, you can always go for a walk with an adult or have a run around your garden.

 

English

 

It’s not a planet, it’s our home.

 

This video was created by WWF and sees a chimpanzee sent into space during the space programme in the 1960s as an experiment – guys do you remember the book we read about this? 65 years later the chimp has returned and he sees Earth and all it’s changes through the eyes of a stranger.

 

  • Discuss and write down the types of things the chimpanzee would be feeling and thinking about. 
  • Describe the concrete jungle he arrives in at 3:45. Perhaps end with the line...... and then a tear trickled down his face.

If you want to write more:

  • Write a description of Earth, imagining you have left and then returned 65 years from now.
