The Floating Farms of Bangladesh - BBC News

If you are attempting to build your own floating garden this Easter, check out the real thing here.

Bangladesh is home to the world's largest river delta and prone to frequent, devastating flooding. Farmers here are expanding an ancient technique of building natural rafts on which to grow their crops.

A Task To Try- Home Learning
 

Equivalent units of measure are always tricky concepts for children to memorise and visualise...this activity is a great way to make these concepts stick! Fill a variety of glasses/bottles/containers and ask the children to record their estimates. It may help to show them a litre/1000ml to compare. See who has the best estimates! Measure the water back out to check. Could be a little messy but it’s certainly fun!

Home Learning Info - your guide on what to do!

SCHOOL CLOSURES

Please see the information for home learning and the first week’s tasks (literacy and maths) on the class 12 page for all of year 6. These tasks will also be uploaded to this page ASAP and updated weekly.  
 

Thank you. 
 

Please remember the additional tasks (Geography, D.T and practise SATs) are optional extras-to try if you wish or if you are somewhere without access to the internet. Have fun with your home learning, and remember, not all learning has to happen in a classroom, so take this opportunity to make, draw and create, as well as learning important life skills! Xx
