Foundation - Art @10am

Rob Biddulph is a writer and illustrator of books for children. Every Tuesday and Thursday at 10am he is broadcasting a draw a long video. Click the orange text at the top of the page to access the live session. Watch the video, pause when necessary and draw along with him to create your own version of his picture. This will be the 12th session - we don't know what we will be drawing yet!

Once you have finished, pop a picture up on See-saw - we would love to see your creations!


There are also the video clips on his website of 11 previous sessions on the website.  If you would like to have a go at these too, feel free.


Well done to everyone who completed a peacock drawing on Tuesday and uploaded their pictures to See-saw. It is great to see your creativity and individual take on the same project. Well done!!


Read the newspaper report 'Pupils  Protest Over New Uniform Rules' and make notes on the 'Who, When, Where, What, and Why sheet. If are able to print the newspaper sheet, use a colour coding system to identify the information as you read to help you record the details in the table.


Use the PowerPoint and revision cards to revise using commas for separating phrases and clauses.  Then create a table for arguments for and against.  Using 'For and Against School Uniform 1' record the statements in the correct column, adding commas where required.  The sentences have been colour coded to help you identify clauses and phrases from the main sentence.


Continue with your table, using 'For and Against School Uniform 2'.  Choose where to include the phrase or clause.  Remember to punctuate your sentence correctly - this includes commas, full stops and capital letters!  Some model answers are provided for you to self -mark at the end of the pack.


Finally, read the 'Writing Brief' and write two paragraphs - one for school uniform and one against. Remember to show your comma skills by including phrases and clauses.


Today we will be looking at short multiplication using the bus stop method. Set out your divisions using the layout shown in the learning pack. Remember, we start off by looking at one digit at the time starting at the largest digit available to the left. How many times can we fit the dividing number into the first digit? Is it even possible to do this? If we can, we write down at the top the number of times we were able to do this, and then carry what is left over across to the next column. If we can't, we place zero at the top and then carry the whole number into the next column. Use the powerpoint provided to help you if you get stuck. 


Please ensure you have permission from someone at home BEFORE you start raiding the cupboards!

For your science session today, we are looking at properties of liquids.  There are two activities for you to choose from.  Follow the link below and select the coloured box from the Periodic table. this will give you all the details you need.

Top-tip: for either challenge use a small jar or drinking glass to reduce the quantity of liquids required.


Challenge 1 - Density jar.

Can you 'balance' different liquids on top of each other? Why do they appear to balance?  What causes this? What conclusions can you draw from your experiment?  


Challenge 2 - Lava lamp

These lava lamps contain Alka-seltzer or effervescent vitamin tablets- you must have a grown-up to help you with this stage.

Why doesn't the oil and water mix? What happens when the Alka-seltzer / effervescent vitamin is added? How does this make the oil move through the water?



After carrying out your investigation, take a photo and upload to Seesaw with a comment to explain your findings.



REMEMBER - you will need to tidy up after you have finished your experiment.  We were delighted to hear (and see from your photos) how great you all were at tidying up after filtering water.  Same again please munchkins!!

Both the lava lamps and density jars can be kept for you to have another look at. 


If you decide you do not wish to keep them, speak to your grown up about how to dispose of them. Be careful not to pour too much oil down your sink - as we found out in our water topic, too much oil and grease can cause a blockage in our sewage pipes.
