I will continue be on teams most mornings between 9:30 and 10:30 to help you and teach you. You can also message me through Class Dojo or use my work email which is firstname.lastname@example.org .You can complete your work in your HWB account, which we have been using for the whole of the Autumn Term and you are very good at getting on to it. It saves automatically and I will be able to see it and leave some comments to say how well you have done. If you would prefer to write your work out that’s great- take a photo and upload it to HWB or Class Dojo for me to see a few children have been doing this and I can still attach comments.
Remember to keep yourselves healthy and fit whilst you are at home, complete your 10 minutes activity of walking, skipping, running etc a day, relax have fun with your family, go to your bedroom for alone time, play with your toys, eat some food or have a treat.

Topic Activities Playlist
Our new topic is a creative one. You are going to get the chance to express yourself creatively.
WALT: to express myself through a creative media.
Creative media can be drama, music, art, movies, printing, model making etc. or a mixture of a few. The choice will be yours!
What’s that noise? A bash? A crash? A shake, a rattle or a low, bass hum? Which do you prefer – an acoustic singer or a booming brass band? A solitary voice singing sweetly and quietly or a magnificent choir lifting the roof? Take out your ear plugs as you journey through the valley of sound and find out about instruments, the sounds they make and how they are produced. Discover how sounds are made and which sounds travel the furthest. Then, sing up and compose a class song for the local talent contest, Class Factor. Can you write a number one hit? Be sure to stand up straight, warm up your voice and sing your heart out.
Look at this web page to learn about different parts of music so you can compose your own
Can we block sound?
Children test different materials to see how well they block sound.
In small groups or pairs, children work scientifically with a range of materials to see how well their properties help them block sound. They place their first material over their ears, hold it in position with a headband then record what they can hear. They repeat the process with all of the materials before testing different combinations. Next the children create a soundproof box using a maximum of five layers of the same or different materials. They put a simple circuit with a buzzer inside of their box and assess how well it blocks sound using a data logger with sound sensor. Instead of a circuit put a toy that makes a sound inside a sandwich box and wrap it up in different layers- which layer blocks the sound?
Blooms: Research your favourite music, singer, song . Find the answer to at least three of the following questions.
- What happened after their first ?
• How many records have they written?
• What is the best one?
• Who was it that they admire the most?
• Name the top ten songs?
• Describe what happened after ……
- Write down some facts ?
- Make up your own questions and answer them – What do you want to know
Present this in your own style.
Something for fun! – Have a go at this.
Have fun !
