w/c Monday 30th March
Join Joe Wicks at 9am for his daily PE lesson on his YouTube channel. Encourage your family to join you – it’s fun to work out together!
Continue to develop your mathematical knowledge and understanding with lessons from White Rose Maths. There are lessons just for your year group which include a video explaining concepts and some activities for you to complete. There’s also an answer sheet so once you’ve completed the learning, you can check to see how successful you’ve been. Keep checking this site as more and more lessons are going to be added.
Become a poet!
Start by finding out about some famous poets. Watch them perform! What style of poetry do you prefer and why? What poetic devices do they use?
Find out more about your favourite poets by reading and listening to interviews with them. What inspires them?
Use this inspiration to write your own poetry. Why not take part in the Premier League Writing Stars poetry challenge? The theme is ambition. Explore the website where there’s lots of useful films, example poems and top tips to help you.
Write a magazine article about Alexander Graham Bell. You could talk about his childhood, his parents, his perseverance to invent the telephone and how he felt when he finally managed to invent it. Watch this video to refresh your memory:
His invention of the telephone was the first time sound was transmitted into electrical signals. This technology lead to the invention of electric hearing aids. How would he have felt about his invention directly leading to the invention of hearing aids? (Remember his mother was deaf and his father spent his life helping deaf people.)
Design an investigation you could carry out at home about sound. Carry out your investigation and write up what you found out. For example, you could investigate different cup and string telephones (like we did in school). Does it make a difference how tight/slack the string is? Does the length of the string make a difference? How else can you show how sound can travel through solids? How can you stop sound from travelling? How could you sound proof your bedroom? Record all of your ideas. You could even create an annotated diagram.
In the News…
Continue to write your diary to explain what it's like to be learning at home whilst school is closed due to the Coronavirus. Keep in touch with elderly relatives and friends by giving them a telephone call to find out how they are and what they’ve been doing at home. This will enable you to share your experiences and may help someone who may be lonely at this time.
Why not try to achieve something new? You could learn to type, enter a competition or even earn yourself a Blue Peter badge!
Learn to type with Gary using Dance Mat Typing.
You could enter a competition at National Geographic Kids. There’s lots of different competitions to appeal to different interests and lots of wonderful prizes up for grabs.
Try to earn a Blue Peter badge. There are eight of them. You can take a quiz that uses top of the range technology to decipher which Blue Peter badge would be perfect for you!
Make Someone Smile
There are some awful things happening in our country and worldwide at the moment, so it’s really important to stay positive as this can help us feel happier. We hope that there is something today that you are grateful for or something that has made you smile. Do something to put a smile on somebody else’s face. Make a list of all of the things that you can do for people in your household. Get them to put a tick next to it each time you do it. At the end of the week, write about the kind things you have done for others and explain how this makes you feel.
