Can you remember how to pronounce these pronouns correctly?  Watch the video to check!

 

Recap

So last week we looked at verbs ending in ‘er’. For example: The verb ‘to play’ is ‘jouer’. ‘Jou’ is the stem, which does not change. The ‘er’ ending is replaced with a different ending, depending on which personal pronoun goes before it. Here are the different endings which go with ‘Jouer’

 

Main Lesson

Today we are looking at verbs which have an ‘ir’ ending. So the principle is exactly the same. The stem of the word will remain, and the ‘ir’ ending will change. But the endings will be different than they are for ‘er’ ending verbs. Let’s look at the verb ‘to finish’. In French this is ‘finir’ You should already be able to spot the stem and the ending. Watch this short video to see how to spell and pronounce the different verb endings for the verb ‘finir'

 

 

 Open the worksheet below and see if you can fill in the correct stem and endings for the word ‘finir’.

RE

 

Jewish people follow the 10 Commandments. The 10 Commandments are a set of rules that were decided on by God. People who believe in God try to live their lives following these rules.

 

Task: Order the 10 Commandments from which you think is the most important to the least important. Can you write down why you choose the Commandments you did for number 1 and number 10?

 

The Sheema is a declaration of faith for Jews. It is like a prayer that is said at least twice a day. It is the first prayer that Jewish children learn. The Sheema is like a Commandment to Jewish people. They follow it along with the 10 Commandments and many other ‘rules’. In Judaism theses ‘rules’ are called Mitzvah (there are 613 of them!).

 

Task: Research 5 Mitzvah are record them in your books.

 

 

Music

LO: To be able to read pitch on a piece of music

Starter:

Recap the names of the notes we introduced last week and try to clap them out.

Use this video from last week to help you:

Which note do you see most often in the sheet music below from Dancing In The Street?

 

 

 This week: reading music pitch

This week we are going to try and read some music, by using the musical staff. This is the lines we see behind musical notes, which tells us the pitch of the sound. The higher on the staff the note is, the higher the sound. As explained in this video: 

Here is a picture of a musical staff, with the note pitch written on their line:

 

If we look at this alongside the music from Dancing In The Street- what note patterns can you see? It might help you to draw a musical staff on lined paper at home, so that you can label the notes!

 

In example, the first note for the word ‘call’ sits on the first space which is the note pitch F. The second note  for ‘ing’ is on the line above, which is the note pitch G. 

Your Turn!

Task: Can you use the changes in pitch (remember, the higher the note up the staff the higher the sound and the lower the note, the lower the sound) to sing this section of the song, changing your voice lower and higher with the movement of notes?

Challenge- Can you use the staff and the music above, to write down the pitch of this short snippet of the song?

ICT 

 

Now you understand what an architect is, what they do and why they do it. You are going to have a go at designing your own dream home! You need to think about what your house will look like on the inside and outside, how many rooms, floors, will it have a balcony? A swimming pool? This is a bit of fun but remember to try and design your home sensibly so that it could actually be lived in.

Firstly, draw the floor plans (think back to a few weeks ago).  Think about how many bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces your house will have. Once you are happy with your plans have a go at designing the front and back of the building but remember- this is not an art lesson, it is ok if it is not perfect!

Once you have completed your home why not try making the floor plans again but on a paint programme on your computer or tablet if you have one?

There are also some apps out there that allow you to design a dream home, if you can find one that is for free, ask an adult first if you can download it and let them check it is suitable, and see what you can build!

 

Art

 

Use of Colour

Colour and its use within artwork is a really important factor. Light, pastel colours can create a feeling of calm, peacefulness and serenity. Dark, dull colours can create a sense of foreboding, mystery and even death.

Artists always consider colour carefully when creating masterpieces, with their message in mind.

Do they want their image to feel cold – use blues and greys.

Do they want their images to be full of passion, love and warmth – use reds and pinks.

Do they want to evoke life – overriding use of yellow.

Do they want to show calm and peace – green.

 

Have a look at the following images. What colours can you see that the artist has used? What feelings do they stir inside you? What do you think the artist is wanting you to feel?

 

Jan Asselijn: The Breach of the Saint Anthony's Dike near Amsterdam (1651)

 

Eugene Isabey: Shipwreck of the Three-Master The Emily in 1823 (1865)

Topic

LO: To know about other natural disasters which can impact the earth.

Starter:

Use the knowledge organiser below to check your knowledge of what we have learnt so far in this topic. Can you mentally tick off all of the items in the can do box?

Here are some useful links for anything you aren’t sure of-

Link BBC Videos:

What causes a Tsunami- BBC

What causes an earthquake

 

Earthquakes and Tsunamis are both natural disasters, but what other natural disasters can occur?

Other natural disasters that take place on our extreme earth include tornadoes and hurricanes. But how are they formed, you may ask?

Here is a handy guide from BBC Teach, which explains how a tornado is formed.

How a tornado is formed

To summarise:

Although no two tornadoes are the same, they need certain

conditions to form - particularly intense or unseasonable heat. A storm quickly develops - there may be rain, thunder and lightning. As the ground temperature increases, moist air heats and starts to rise. When the warm, moist air meets cold dry air, it explodes upwards, puncturing the layer above. A thunder cloud may begin to build. Upward movement of air can become very rapid and from different directions cause it to rotate. A visible cone or funnel drops out of the cloud towards the ground, this is the tornado which then spins high winds across the earths surface. A tornado can last from several seconds to more than an hour and may travel dozens of miles.        

Question Time!

Using the below average temperature diagram and the information above to help you.

Question- Looking at this heat map, which countries do you think are most prone to tornados?

Challenge- why do you think that tornados are common in tropical areas such as Hawaii, but not in the UK? Can you explain this to an adult or older sibling at home?

What’s the impact?

Below you can see a series of images, which shows the damage a tornado can do. The damage done is mostly affected by the speed at which the wind is traveling within the tornado, which is discussed in the table below.

 

 Task: Operation Survive!

 

Task: You are now the owner of a house in the tornado hotspot of Mississippi. How are you going to protect your home, from the frequent tornados? You can use google and BBC Bitesize to research ideas for protecting your home. Then, present your ideas either in a paragraph, spider diagram or short video!

Challenge: can you research some ways that countries as a whole, can prepare and protect themselves from tornados?
