Monday 27th April

Remember, your first job everyday is to send a 'Good Morning'  message to your class teacher on I Am Learning by 10 am.

 

If you run out of space in any exercise books (orange Maths or yellow English book), please ask an adult to contact the office to arrange to pick up a new one.

 

REMINDER- We are starting to use Oak National Academy for English and Maths. You will still be set additional work by your class teacher which you can see below.

If you have any issues, before contacting your class teacher, please check the user guides and instructions which are on your distance learning page under 'Oak National Academy resources'. 

You will send today's English and Maths scores to your class teacher tomorrow when you send your good morning message via I Am Learning.

Mini Task: write down the key vocabulary that you learn about in this video. Please copy this after your date and LO.

Light comes from a number of different places, like the sun, fire, or from electricity in lamps and torches. Without it, we cannot see anything - only darkness.

Light behaves differently with objects:

  • Transparent objects such as glass allow light to pass through.
  • Reflective surfaces like a mirror or a shiny spoon, bounce the light off the surface.
  • Opaque objects block the light and create shadows.

Watch the animation of Bob and Jim race a rocket-powered car against light to see which one is fastest. What do you learn?

Activity 1

Scroll down the page and try the short game to see how much you know about light.

Activity 2

Task 1:

Walk around your house and garden and make a list on your sheet of paper of all the light sources you can find.

See who can find the most.

Task 2:

Shine a torchlight on the following objects and make a note of what happens (draw a diagram and label this):

  • A glass of water - transparent object
  • A mug or cup - opaque object
  • A shiny spoon - reflective object

Move the torch around the objects to see how the light behaves. Write down your findings.

Activity 3: Get active with the short video about light at the bottom of the page.
