This week, we are going to continue to use the Talk for Writing resource based on GADGETS. Now that you have designed your very own gadget at the end of last week, let’s start thinking about the language. Please complete Activity Four where you need to find examples of persuasion from the model text.

When you have done that, can you think of your own examples of these persuasive techniques for YOUR OWN GADGET?

Science investigation 

Today we would like you to plan and set up your very own science experiment which you can do at home. Mould is a microorganism and we are going to investigate THE CONDITIONS WHICH CAUSE MOULD TO GROW.

Have a look at this Powerpoint presentation which explains the experiment. You are going to plan ONE VARIABLE to change (the INDEPENDENT VARIABLE.) This could be the temperature, the level of light or the amount of moisture. Use the attached document which is a planning sheet for your experiment (the one with ONE STAR at the top of the sheet is a slightly easier version and the one with THREE STARS is more challenging)

We would like you to set up the experiment and complete observations at home of what is happening to the slices of bread. You could do the observations every day or you may choose to do them every other day or even twice a week. You need to observe the bread over time to see how it changes and we’ll come back to this is a week or so to make a conclusion about what conditions mould grows best in.

Activities

 

This week you will be thinking about why it is important to belong to a team or group. What teams or groups do you belong to? These might be inside or outside of school. How does it make you feel? What does being a good sport look like? What skills and qualities do you need to be a good team player? Have a look at the top tips sheet below. 

 

Have a watch of the following video and then complete the sheet below or create a poster answering the questions above. 

Make your own Guess Who game

 

Create your sets of characters on pieces of card or paper. Customising each character is easy –  you could use photos of drawings of your favourite super heroes, cartoons, sports teams or even your family and pets. Once you have created your characters, ask each other yes/no questions and try to be the first player to guess your partners identity.

This is a fantastic site where you can explore the digital microscope. Have a look around and watch some of the things under the digital microscope. If you then click where it says ‘Microorganisms’, you can watch mould growing underneath a microscope. You do not need to set up the bread experiment as we have already done this. If you click on ‘Take me further’, we would like you to either make a presentation using ICT of how microorganisms are used to make different kinds of foods OR we would like you to complete the ART activity and have a go at your very own spore print! Good luck!
