May Half Term Projects

During the half term break you can choose to complete one (or all) of the following projects:

 

1) Find out all about Captain James Cook – an important person from Yorkshire. Find out what he did and where he went. Present your research anyway you want to…. a PowerPoint, some writing or even a model – then take a photo or send us evidence of what you’ve done: we’d love to see!

 

2) We are going to start a topic on plants. Look for examples of different plants (maybe in a garden or out on walks) and try to draw them. Find out their names and label them.

We are learning about money from around the world. In different countries they have different currency [types of money].

 

They have Euros in lots of Europe.

 

They have francs in Switzerland.

 

They have dollars in America.

 

Choose somethings you like buying. Use the internet to research how much it costs in different currencies: its amazing!

For example: before the Euro, a bag of crisps cost 365 pesetas in Spain, but 10 000 lira in Italy and 35 dollars!

English

Conjunctions, as you know, join two parts of a sentence together. They do lots of different jobs. Today we are looking at conjunctions which express time and cause. How many can you think of?

Do the activity sheet I’ve put on above.

 

Topic

DON’T FORGET TO HAVE SOME SEEDS READY FOR OUR PLANTS TOPIC: CRESS OR BEANSPROUTS [MUNG BEANS] OR MARIGOLDS WOULD WORK WELL!!!]

Making shadows

Light is a beam of energy that travels in a wave from a source.

A wave of light can only travel in a straight line.

Waves of light are called light rays.

Try this activity to demonstrate how light travels:

  • Punch holes in the centre of three equal-sized pieces of card.
  • Hold the pieces of card so that the holes line up.
  • Shine a torch so that the beam of light can travel straight through the holes.

What happens if you move one of the pieces of card so the holes don't line up?

 

When you moved one of your pieces of card so the holes did not line up, the card blocked the ray of light. This is because light can only travel in a straight line, so it can not travel around the card.

Some objects, like the card, block light well and don't let any get through.  These objects are called opaque.

Other things let some light through, but scatter the light so we can't see through them properly. These things are called translucent.

Transparent objects let light travel through them easily.

Can you think of some items that are opaque, translucent and

transparent?

Opaque, translucent and transparent materials are all useful for different things. Look at the items below and decide which type of material would be best for each one:

bathroom window                          living room curtains                        car windscreen

sun hat                                              window with a great view            shower curtain

 

Opaque objects do not let any light through.

They completely block the light and stop it travelling any further.

These objects create shadows.

Shadows are areas of darkness where light has been blocked.

A boy called Isaac has a new baby sister.

She is a very good baby, but she keeps crying early in the morning because too much light is getting into her bedroom and waking her up.

Isaac wants to choose the best material to make some new curtains for her bedroom.

He wants to make sure that her new curtains block as much light as possible.

Can you help him?

Test different materials around your house to see which let the least light through. Record whether the materials you have tested are opaque, translucent or opaque in a table. Draw and label the curtains with the material you have chosen for the curtains.

We are going to write our own fairy tale this week.

Find a 'Story Mountain', draw your own or print out the one I've uploaded. Decide how your story is going to go. 

Remember, in a fairy tale the characters are usually royal people/ magical animals and the story usually has a happy ending. It needs to be set in magical places like forests or castles: NOT SPACE! Think carefully what the problem will be - make it exciting and fun!

 

Topic

Sun safety

Have you ever been told not to look at the sun?

Is the sun good or bad?

The statements below are all things that the sun does.

Decide if each makes the Sun good or bad:

Causes sunburn

Causes wrinkles

Helps plants make food

Can cause skin cancer

Provides warmth

Makes people happier

Is a source of Light

Damages your eyes

Helps people make Vitamin D

 

To protect your skin from UV rays, you can cover up or wear sun cream.

But what can you do to protect your eyes?

There are several things you should do to protect your eyes from the sun or other bright lights.

  • You should wear sunglasses when out in the sun. Sunglasses have a UV rating to show how well they block UV rays. Make sure you get sunglasses with a high UV rating.
  • Some sunglasses don't have a UV rating - these are really just toy sunglasses and don't protect your eyes. In fact, because they have dark lenses but no UV filter, the pupil opens wider, actually letting in more UV rays!

 

Now you know how the sun can damage your eyes, and how to protect your eyes.

Your task is to design a pair of sunglasses or a hat that will protect someone's eyes from the harmful effects of the sun.

You should also advertise your sun protection item!

Tell your customers why they need to buy your sunglasses or hat.

Explain about the effects of the sun, and how your sunglasses or hat can help protect against them.

Today we are learning how to make words plural. There are lots of rules in English, but NEVER using apostrophes!

Do the activities on the sheet above.

 

Topic

Today we are learning all about mirrors. 

Some surfaces reflect light better than others.

The surfaces that reflect light best are smooth, shiny and flat.

This is because the light rays bounce off these surfaces at the same angle.

If light hits a rough surface, the light rays all bounce off at different angles, meaning the light is scattered. It does not reflect well.

The most familiar type of mirror is a plain mirror, which has a flat surface.

Plain mirrors are commonly made of a flat, polished piece of glass with a shiny metal backing, such as silver or aluminium.

The light reflected by a mirror preserves most of the characteristics of the original light, so it creates a clear image.

An image in a mirror appears to be reversed. For example, if you look in a mirror and raise your right hand, the mirror image appears to raise its left hand. 

Either on your own, or find a helper [a brother/ sister or a parent], write some messages backwards using a mirror to help for them to read. Draw a maze for them to trace a line through only looking in a mirror - it's not as easy as it looks!

Then fill in the activity sheet above or write about what you did in your book.
