Science

I can classify living things

 

As a follow up to the activity you completed last week, we are going to learn about how living things can be grouped or classified in different ways according to their features. Branching keys are useful for classifying (grouping) using the descriptions of features. Work your way through this powerpoint and have a go at the suggested activities. Don’t worry if you do not have any Liquorice Allsorts as there are pictures of the sweets on page 9. Have fun!

Classification of Living Things

Topic

I can find out about daily life in Spain

 

This is you last week of studying the European country, Spain. This week I would like you to find out a little more about what daily life is normally like in Spain. You may wish to focus on Spanish schools and compare them to our own. Use these websites and videos to help you.

Once you have collected some information, present your findings in a non-chronological report or a leaflet.

R.E.

Last week we looked at who you are and what you mean to different people by sticking a photo or drawing a picture of yourself and getting members of your family and friends to tell you what you mean to them. This is like Brahman as he is one god with lots of different aspects.

This week we are going to do an experiment. Take a glass of water and put in a tiny bit of salt or sugar - it will dissolve into the water and you won't be able to see it or remove it. Now taste the water and you will taste the salt or sugar in every drop of the water. In this analogy the water represents the world and the salt represents Brahman, though invisible Brahman is everywhere.

Christians believe God created the world and Hindus believe that Brahman is in everything in the world. 

Take a look at the videos below which explain about different hindu deities/gods and the importance of them at home, in the temple and in Puja.

German

The Voyage Kids is a great website for children to find out about Germany, its customs, learn new vocabulary and play games! So if you are looking to build on the German you have already learnt at school, visit the link below!

Music

Use this amazing interactive piano activity to learn how to play the piano without a piano! You can learn, compose and perform traditional tunes on a virtual piano. Listen to the tune and see the notes appear on the interactive piano keyboard to learn how to play them. If you can already play the piano you will enjoy composing your own tunes and performing them.

The Joy of Moving

I cannot wait to have a go at the fun activities below! As a school we have decided to take part in the 'Joy of Moving' festival which is an event happening all over the UK over the whole week and it encourages children to enjoy being active at home. The pack has everything you will need to plan and carry out various games and events at home with little preparation. We are going to hold our event on Wednesday afternoon for those attending school and that's when we would like all of our children to try to take part. We are sharing information now so that you and your families have time to look through, decide what and how you might take part and if for whatever reason Wednesday afternoon is not suitable, you have the pack to hold your own event some other time. Please share the fun you have by sending photographs to Mrs Hickmen: Class1@st-johns-keele.staffs.sch.uk
