Good morning everyone, see you at 11am for our penultimate meet of the half term, see you soon.


Join us at 11am as we discuss today’s activities.

Here are today’s maths activity sheets.

Today’s video link

After watching the video I would like you to design a poster. On your poster I would like you to include as many persuasive writing techniques as possible, in order to sell the beans.


Imagine you are Geoff and must persuade as many people as possible to buy your new tins of beans. Good luck and I cannot wait to see your persuasive skills again.


Remember there are many persuasive writing techniques so here are a few for you to think about.

  • Rhetorical questions
  • Repetition
  • Metaphors and Similes
  • Rich detail and adjectives
  • Use of the 5 senses

Do you agree or disagree with any of these statements?

Our shadows are reflections from the sun.

The stronger the source of light the bigger a shadow will be.

I think shadows are made by something blocking the light.

Shadows are created when an opaque object blocks light.

The light cannot go through or around the object, so a darker patch of less light is created behind the object.

Shadows are not reflections! Reflection is when light bounces off an object. A shadow is caused by light being blocked


Look at the picture below. What do you notice about the shadows?






Thats right the shadow is bigger than the object.

What else do you notice?


Today we will be investigating…

How do shadows change when the distance between the light source and the object changes?

What you will need to do is pick an object, have a torch and a ruler.

Set you light source 10cm away from your object. Then switch on the light source and measure the length of the shadow.

Then move your light source back, and measure the length of the shadow again.

What do you notice?

Here is today’s activity sheet to help you measure the change in size of a shadow as we move the light source away.

Mild – Investigating Shadows

Spicy – Investigating Shadows

Hot – Investigating Shadows


The closer an object is to the light source, the more light it blocks. This means the shadow created is bigger. But if an object is far away from the light source, it does not block out much light, so the shadow

is smaller.


Today’s PE challenge is to complete some burpees.

How many can you do in 1 minute?

Can you do them faster?

Let me know how many you do.

Have a great day everyone and keep smiling.
