Emeralds Homework - Monday 22nd May 2017
A big thank you to Simon Bradley, Engineer, who came into school today as part of our Waterworlds topic. We heard about the types of engineering jobs that can lead from an interest in science, how electricity is converted (made) and what sustainable energy is.
We also learnt how people survive living below water for long periods of time in submarines. Using what you have learnt, I would like you to design your own underwater ‘home’ that you might like to live in. You can draw it, make a model, make a PowerPoint presentation or write about your ideas. Remember, let your imagination run wild, as one day you may be the engineer at work making these ideas possible.
Ideas to get you started…
- Will your home be on the ocean floor or floating?
- How will you get to your home?
- How will you power your home and how will you make it sustainable?
- How will you make sure you have enough oxygen and not too much carbon dioxide?
- How will you have clean drinking water?
- How will you have enough food?
- How can you keep fit and exercise there?
- What entertainment will you have?
Please bring in your homework completed for the first Monday back after half term, when we will be presenting our ideas to the class.
Topic Homework – 19.5.17 – Due in Tuesday 6th June 2017
Create a front cover of your Water Worlds topic book.
It could be anything you want to do, related to Water Worlds – sea creature, sea collage, river, fresh water creature… the list is endless!
You can create it as a collage, a drawing, a painting, on the computer; as a piece of art work in any form.
You have free choice with this project so it is up to you to research your chosen project.
Please produce your work on a piece of A4 card (which fits nicely on the topic books). If you would like some card from school, please take some.
Please ensure the following information is clearly on the front cover:
Hope you enjoy this homework!
