English - Discovery Narrative Description

Today we will be firstly reading the first part of Darwin's exploration of the Galapagos Islands before looking at the use of formal (posh) words and language within the Darwin exploration of Brazil text.

Lesson Focus - To compare formal and informal language used within our narrative discovery text.

Using the below video, power points and sheet (or a piece of paper) to find meanings, similar formal synonym words using a dictionary or internet search and match more informal words.  


Watch some examples of formal and informal language being used in speech.

Today we are learning to solve two-step equations.  Watch the video below and then complete the questions from the sheet.  Do questions 1, 2, 3 and 4 first.  If you are finding it tricky, stop after question 4, but if you want to challenge yourself, complete the rest of the questions on the sheet.

Science - Material Properties and Changes

Lesson Starter:

Lesson Focus - Material dissolving in water to form solutions.

Using the below power point slides, video and sheet (or this could be done on a piece of paper) we will be mixing different materials to water and stirring to see if they dissolve (soluble) or if they don't dissolve (remain visible and still separate - insoluble).

Materials/Equipment needed - water, transparent cups (ideally plastic, be careful if using glass), stirring spoon, flour, salt, sugar, pepper, sand, coffee granules and rice (or materials to stir in water of your choice).

You could leave your solutions/water and solid mixtures close to a window (like below) and see what happens after a day or two. This will be covered in next week's separating materials lesson on Wednesday.
