Good morning Oak Class! I hope you all got on ok with your work yesterday and that lots of you rose to the challenge of the Shakepearean sonnet! Now for today’s work…
LI – To compose poetry using figurative language and personification.(Task 1)
LI – to create a Shakespearean style sonnet. (Task 2)
Yesterday, you chose which of the English tasks you were going to focus on for the rest of this week; the LI will be the same as yesterday. Remember, if you’re wanting extra work or an extra challenge, you could do both tasks.
Task 1 – Your task today is to edit and improve your Tempest Spell Poem.
Get out your dictionary and theasaurus (use an online one if you’ve not got one at home). Up-level your vocabulary (you can use your pink and green pens); check the spelling of any words you’re not sure of and correct any spelling mistakes; decide whether your poem is going to rhyme and what your rhyme scheme will be; decide how you are going to use your repeated line idea in your poem. Remember not to write the poem up in neat yet.
Task 1 – Your task today is to edit and improve your Shakespearean sonnet about the Tempest.
Get out your dictionary and theasaurus (use an online one if you’ve not got one at home). Up-level your vocabulary (you can use your pink and green pens); check the spelling of any words you’re not sure of and correct any spelling mistakes; check that your rhyme pattern works (the 1st and 3rd lines and the 2nd and 4th lines of her quatrain rhyme); check that each line contains ten syllables. Remember not to write the poem up in neat yet.
Maths – LI – To solve number puzzles involving multiplication and division.
This activity requires you to use the multiplication and division skills that you practised yesterday. Begin by reading the information and looking at the example at the top of the page. You may want to print the sheet out or work in your work book but remember to use jottings to help you complete the multiplication pyramids.
As an extension, do some multiplication and division work on Mathletics.
Stilling Time – Praying Hands
Watch and join in with the following tutorial of how to draw praying hands:
As you draw…
Noticing the feeling of the pencil or pen against the paper.
Observing your feelings about what you are creating.
Shifting your attention to any other senses – perhaps the sound of the pencil/pen against the paper; how your body feels in the position you are sitting in, etc.
Allowing yourself to feel pride in what you’ve achieved.
Once your drawing is finished, say a 5 Finger Prayer (see the picture below for a reminder of what you pray for with each digit).
Topic – Geography
LI – to learn about and understand river processes and land forms.
Let’s start with a quick recap of what rivers do… Flow downhill (gravity); Drain the land of water back to the sea; Erode the land (wear it away); Deposit sediments (silt, sand, etc) and make new land (Deltas).
Activity 1: In your work book, make a list of all the uses of rivers you can think of. Try to be specific and think outside the box. Hints… leisure and tourism, religion, transport, etc.
Next, quickly recap all the river features you have learnt about over the past few weeks. If you can, tell someone at home all the features you can think of and a definition for each.
Today we are going to focus on waterfalls.
Activity 2: In your work book, make a list of as many waterfalls you can think of. Try to include some that are close to home and others from around the world. Now watch and enjoy this amazing video (as you watch, add to your list)…
Without being with you in person, it’s difficult to explain how waterfalls are formed so I’ve found a video that I think does this really well:
Please watch the video as many times as you need to and then use it to help you complete the worksheets below (please click link). You really need to be able to print these off but if you can’t, just draw a picture and a description for each stage in your work book.
