A Brighter Future for Everyone




I would like you to create a poster to share your findings on the Chihuahuan desert from your topic work (further down the page). You can do this on paper or on PowerPoint, the choice is yours. 


Here are some examples of how you could set out your work if you are struggling to make a start.



Remember to use the SPaG skills you have been learning about this year. Think about your vocabulary and sentence openers to hook and engage the reader. 


If you would like your work to be shared and published on the website, to a real life audience, email it to me and I'll upload it. 



Complete the White Rose maths lesson for Wednesday 22nd - Angles in a triangle-special cases. There is a video on the website to support your learning. 


There is a worksheet to complete below. You can either print this out or write the answers in the workbook you took home, on some paper or type them out. It's up to you! 


The answer sheet is included to check your work against. Please don't look at the answers until you have attempted the worksheet yourself! 





The Chihuahuan Desert is a famous Mexican desert.


Can you locate the desert on google maps? 

I gave it a try and found this...

I wonder what it would look like if I had zoomed in? 


I would like you to visit this website: 

to learn more about it. You can click the link to take you straight to the website.


What can you find out about the people, plants and animals that inhabit the desert? 

What difficulties do you think the people who live there face every day? 

How close is the desert to the equator? What does this tell you about the climate?
