Monday (D&T)

Can you make a tunnel?

Work outside to create a tunnel using natural materials such as twigs, fallen branches, grass or work inside to create a tunnel using chairs, blankets etc. Once you have made your tunnel investigate it to see if you could improve the design, e.g. make it stronger, more stable! Once you have made your tunnel take a picture and email it over!



Tuesday (Geography)

Where is the tunnel located?

Can you think of any famous tunnels? If not, have a look at the images below. Where is each tunnel located? Cut out the different tunnel images and stick them onto the world map. If you don't have a printer see if you can simply locate the different countries on the world map.


Wednesday (Science)

What do you know about tunneling animals?

What do you know about tunneling animals? Pick a tunneling animal and research it using 'Google' or read the factsheets included below. Then create an information map or poster about your animal. You could use one of the templates provided or create your own. You could try thinking 'outside the box' and display your facts on a cut out animal or make a little booklet. A bat is not a tunneling animal but the examples below  might inspire you! 





Thursday (History)

What do you know about The Great Escape?

'The Great Escape, as it came to be known, was a mass escape attempt from the prisoner of war camp ‘Stalag Luft III’ located near the polish town of Zagan. The prisoners decided to build three tunnels and the plan was to effect the escape of at least 200 men. The tunnels were given the code names ‘Tom’, ‘Dick’ and ‘Harry’. There were two main problems to be considered; how to get rid of the dirt that was dug away and how to prevent the tunnels from collapsing.'


The animated move ‘Chicken Run’ is based on the story of The Great Escape. If you have a copy why not spend some time watching it with your family. You could all cuddle up on the sofa with a big bowl of popcorn or a plate full of lovely healthy snacks.
