Write a persuasive letter to Captain Robert FitzRoy (as Charles Darwin) to let you join the HMS Beagle in 1831 and go and explore.
Imagine that you are Charles Darwin and that you are desperate to join the HMS Beagle on its voyage in 1831. You are going to write a formal letter to Captain Robert FitzRoy (me), persuading him to let you join the crew on their expedition around South America (and other countries/continents visited). You will need to use persuasive language (see persuasive language examples) and I shall judge whether or not you have been persuasive enough to let you join the expedition!
Remember that you already know what Charles Darwin discovered so you could include some ideas of what he found to help persuade him by being vague. e.g. An intelligent man such as yourself would surely want to become the famous captain of the glorious ship that aided in the discovery of so many new types of birds, plants and other spectacular specimens...
As part of our P.S.H.E. topic this half term, we are focusing on ‘Healthy Me’.
I would like you to think about healthy eating. Look at the completed eat well plate and the different types of foods in each section. I would like you to devise a breakfast, lunch and dinner that shows this balance. You don’t necessarily have to have diary and proteins in one meal, but there must be a balance throughout the day.
If you make any of your ideas, I would love a photo – no pressure parents and carers – please!! Children don’t nag your parents – a drawing is fine!!!
Also, throughout the week, I would like you to complete a food diary for all of the food (and water) you have. By the end of the week, you should be able to see how 'well' you are eating and which food groups you have eaten.
