Investigating the growth of a plant

This term, we are looking at ‘Plants’ as our topic in Science. We will learn about what conditions we could change to investigate the growth of a plant, the parts and functions of a plant (including the flower), the parts of a plant’s life cycle, how plants transport water and how plants adapt to different environments.

In this lesson, we are going to learn about what plants need to grow. Then, we will learn about variables, in order to set up a simple experiment to test the effect of water on the growth of a plant.

Use the link below to take you to an Oak National Academy lesson about what conditions we could change to investigate the growth of a plant.

Art: Make a Colourful Tessellating Design.

Today we are exploring a Dutch Artist called M.C. Escher. He  was fascinated by the creativity of Maths. He explored symmetry and various types of reflection to create amazing designs. There is a tutorial for a tessellation art project. At the beginning it shows some of M.C. Escher’s designs. Please make a design of repeating shapes that fit together and add some colours. Please put your final design into your book as we would love to see it.

Click here for a tessellation art project video

PE: Keep Active.

It was amazing to see so many fantastic “100 challenges” before half term. You sent in videos and photos of trampolining, scoring goals, cycling round a circuit and running round a coffee table. You are all working very hard at staying active. Please use this PE session to get outside and be active for about 20 minutes in any way that you love. Perhaps take a photo and put it in your home learning book?

End of Day Activity: Create a Monster Game.

For each game, roll the dice 5 times. Every time you roll the dice, you should copy the body, eyes, mouth, arms and finally legs that are shown on the grid. This should create a unique monster. Add some colours if you wish. Repeat the game and make another Monster. It should be very different to your first one. Keep going until you have drawn a little family of monsters in your book.

(If you don’t have a dice, choose a body, then some eyes, a mouth, some arms and finally legs to create a monster. )

History

We have now reached the end of our unit on the Stone Age and would ask that you now create your own fact page about what you have learnt. You can display this in whatever format you want. For example, you might design a poster, maybe you will create a fact file which has moving parts (e.g. a lever, lift the flap to reveal the fact). You could imagine you are a presenter on Newsround and record yourself telling the viewer all about the Stone Age.

Here are some facts to help you-

Science – Lesson 6: Which substances do not fit into one state of matter?

Click here to access the worksheet

This term, we are looking at ‘States of Matter’ as our topic in Science.  We have learned that materials can be in one of three states of matter (solid, liquid or gas), how particles behave and what happens to the behaviour and arrangement of particles when they are heated or cooled. We have also learned about the four main state changes and about melting and boiling points.

In this lesson, we will learn about substances, like sand, that do not fit into one state of matter. We will also learn about non-Newtonian fluids and investigate their properties. If you would like to take part in the investigation (which will probably get messy so make sure to ask a grown up!), you will need water, corn flour, a bowl and a spoon. If you do not have this equipment, you can watch the teacher carry out the experiment while observing what happens.

Use the link below to take you to an Oak National Academy lesson about which substances do not fit into one state of matter.
