Mini-Comprehension

10.00-10.40 English 

11.45-12.15 Music

Use this page to learn about how in 1963, the original Dr Who theme tune was created. 

In the 1960s Robert Moog developed synthesizers, which were easier to use and cheaper to buy than the ones on the Dr Who theme and could be played using a keyboard.  Lots of musicians started to use them.  Over time, the technology developed, became cheaper to buy and use of computers made it even easier for people to make electronic music.  Nowadays, it is very easy to produce music through apps such as Garageband.   A lot of popular music made today is produced electronically (rather than on real instruments) and would not have been possible without the work of Delia Derbyshire, the BBC Radiophonic workshop and Robert Moog.

Use this link to a virtual Moog synthesizer and have a go at making a piece of music.

1.30-2.15 Science.

Micro-organisms can be helpful or harmful.

We were going to complete an experiment on yeast in school. 
If at all possible, make some bread with an adult so you can see how yeast works to create gas bubbles and help the dough to rise.  If not, watch this video.
Write a set of but/because/so sentences about what you have learned from the images above, the video and the lesson from Monday.
Start with 'Microbes can be harmful...'
Complete the quiz 

Wednesday 8th April 2020

Mini-Comprehension

10.00-10.40 English

Activity One

Imagine you are Stanley.  You are digging in the hot sun.  Write down 5 NOUNS (things) that you could describe.  Now write down a verb (action) that could go with each noun (e.g. if your noun was rain your verb might be fall.  If your noun was cut your verb could be bleed.)  Then, write down an adjective to describe each noun.  So your work will look like this:

noun                  verb                 adjective              extra

rain                    fall                    cool                    refreshing

moon                 shine                 steel-grey             luminous

cut                     bleed                 painful                 cruel

The 'extra' column is any other good words you think of that would go with the noun: adjectives, verbs, adverbs, a noun that is connected.  SO you will have 5 different nouns in your table, all connected with Stanley digging in the hot sun.  You will be using these next week to form a poem.

Activity Two

Take a look at this PowerPoint to revise figurative language.  You should already know simile, metaphor and personification.  Hyperbole is new.  It basically means to exaggerate.  You are not expecting people to believe what you are saying but you are going 'over the top' to make your point. 

If you cannot open Powerpoints, look at this document (you just won't be able to do any quizzes). 

Choose one of your nouns from the table earlier.  Have a try at adding some figuative language to go with it (simile, metaphor, personification or hyperbole).

 11.45-12.15 French

Your French might be a bit rusty!  Use this video to revise French greetings.  Write down the greetings in your book and use a small drawing or symbol to remind you of which time of day the greeting is used.

1.30-2.15 History.

This document will tell you what to do.

11.45-12.15 - PSHE
Lots of people are working hard to keep us safe at the moment.  Doctors, nurses, care assistants, GPs, pharmacists and other medical staff are caring for the sick.  Supermarket staff, factory workers, farmers and drivers are making sure there is enough food for everybody.  The emergency services are keeping people safe.  Cleaners in all sorts of places are keeping things hygienic to avoid germs spreading.  Choose an activity to show gratitude to some of these people.
 
Coronavirus: Thank our NHS heroes with huge national clap for ...
 
1. People have been clapping from their doorsteps each Thursday at 8.00 to show appreciation for NHS staff and others that are helping us.  If you have done this, write a few lines about how this was when you did it.  Who from your house took part?  What about your street?  How did you feel?
2. Think of a person who is helping you or your family at the moment.  Write a letter to thank them.  Make sure you explain exactly why their work is important.
3. Create a window rainbow.  (Read about them here if you are not sure what they are).
 

1.30-2.15 RE lesson: Good Friday

Friday 10th April 2020 - Good Friday

No lessons have been set today as it is Good Friday.  If you wish to stick with your routine and do a little bit of work, there are still Friday's maths activities available, plus you could spend some time working on your project or catching up/reviewing what we have already done in the archive. You could also do this optional activity:

Design and make a religious Easter card.  It should contain an image that refers to the events of Holy Week/Easter Sunday.  If you do not have art materials, design it in your book in pencil or pen and write a sentence or two to explain the image you have chosen and why.  

Father Phil will be live-streaming Mass at 3.00pm today.  Click here for the stream.

Father Phil will also be live-streaming Mass on Easter Sunday at 10am.  More details can be found here.

 

Reading - Where to find books

The most valuable activity children can do is read.  If the libraries are closed or you do not have books at home, texts can be found here:

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/

(you need to register for free first)

 

You can also access free pdfs and audiobooks of 6 classic children’s novels here:

https://www.researchify.co.uk/audiobooks.html (no login required) (including Alice in Wonderland, which some of you took home)

You can access free downloads of First News, a good-quality children’s newspaper, here for a limited period:

https://subscribe.firstnews.co.uk/free-downloadable-issue/

 

Personal Project 

Spend some time each day researching and creating a personal project. Become an expert in something!  It could be animals, a period of history, a sport, a scientific topic.  Your work could take the form of a book, a film, a piece of artwork, a model or a poster (or something I have not thought of!)  Maybe you could learn a new skill and demonstrate it to us when you come back.  Or you might want to keep a journal and learn a little bit about a topic each day. The links on the first page of the remote learning website (where all the year groups are) might be useful.

Whatever you decide to do, bring it with you when we come back to school, whenever that may be.
