(These are key words you need to know how to read AND spell.) Write them out for handwriting, put them into sentences for spelling and test yourself every day.

Topic:

Topic: Our key question this week is What is the environment of the Arctic and the Antarctic like? How do they differ?

In this lesson, you will find the answer to this question and will create a diagram. There will be a focus on key vocabulary too. 

There is one lesson presentation to follow and some worksheets you will need for the tasks.

Topic Lesson Week 4

Literacy:

Today you will check and extend yesterday’s work. Have you used the same structure as the model text Kidnapped? Do you need to make any changes to your boxing up or comic strip? Can someone follow your story using your comic strip? Make sure your comic strip is colourful and appealing.

Music:

Perform signed song from memory with confidence.

This week’s song: A Million Dreams – The Greatest Showman – Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Ziv Zaifman – SignSing  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32DjVo1Vwzk

Play the song several times, join in whenever you can. Each time you play the song, you will pick up more signs.

Play mime games with an adult or a sibling – ask your signing partner to call a word from the song. You get a point if you remember the sign! Then do the same with the adult.

These are the lyrics you will need for the game: (worksheet link) Music lesson song

Computing: Touch Typing 

This is an update to the previous post. There seemed to be quite a few problems for some parents with the Scratch programming and the Oak Academy link, so I have changed to this activity. Enjoy!

We are moving away from coding for a while due to some issues we have been having with the Scratch website. Instead, children will be able to brush up on their touch-typing skills – this will be invaluable to them as they move forward in their education. Typing at speed will really set them up well for all those assignments they’ll need to write in secondary school!

Go to this website: https://www.typingclub.com/

It’s an absolutely brilliant way of learning to touch type by having fun.

Literacy:

Write your first draft of your invented story. This is where you use the boxing up that you did on Monday to act as your ‘map’. You know what you need to write about in each paragraph, so this is where you need to think about the best words you can use to tell the story, paragraph by paragraph. Remember all the skills you have learnt in this unit: speech punctuation and its rules; how to write paragraphs and think about the toolkit you did – have you included all the things you need to to write an effective time slip story?

R.E.

In R.E. this week we will continue to explore what Augustine of Hippo said. The work below is the same as last week’s. If you did not do it, or finish it, please do so this week.

Augustine lived in Roman Africa where people went in search of happiness. Very similar to modern day in Britain. Augustine believed in original sin.

What did he mean by that?

One day there will be a city of God established.

What did Augustine say our attitude should be towards this life? (momentary sufferings compared with what awaits us when we die.)

Look at this Week 3 St Augustine as an introduction to St Augustine of Hippo.

Watch video on St Augustine as an example of a Christian philosopher and discuss.

Can you explain why your own answers to ultimate questions may differ from those of others?

Can you explain your own values and remain respectful of those with different values?

Art: Colour theory

Colour theory is extremely important to fashion designers. Pairing the right colours for the right occasion and skin tone is seen as essential. Although experimentation is always encouraged, there are certain optimal combinations of complementary colours that are widely used such as grey/crimson, yellow/green, pink/white and tan/ maroon, for example.

Try out colour combinations in your art books/on paper.

Try these on own clothing designs (worksheet link here) Design and outfit worksheet

POP tasks – choose as many tasks as you want from those listed below. They get progressively harder, increasing the level of challenge as you go.

Why is colour theory important for fashion designers to consider?

List some examples of complementary colours that are considered to be good combinations for fashion.

Copy the use of the suggested optimal complementary colour combinations in your own sketches for clothing designs.

Suggest reasons why experimentation with colour choices might be a good thing in fashion and why designers might choose not to experiment with colour.

Look at this statement: The colours used by Pop artists like Andy Warhol are not suitable for fashion designers to consider when creating their clothing collections. Is that always true, sometimes true or never true?

You can watch the video we used last week again to remind yourself. Once you have edited your first draft, write it out in your best handwriting and you have finished your writing for this unit. Well done.
