It is now Holy Week. Use this activity to remind yourself of the Easter story.

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.
Micro-organisms can be helpful or harmful.
Wednesday 8th April 2020
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.
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).
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.
This document will tell you what to do.

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:
(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:
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.
