SCIENCE and ART
with Mrs Chapman.
Science -You will need to think about Science all the time through the week as well as sitting for an hour.Your Science should take at least 90 minutes a week and your Art will probably be the same. You don't have to do this all on one day- sometimes just to do some for a little time each day!
Hello Super Scientists!
THE BIG BUILD!
This is our final science topic of the year- I think you will find it fun.
In this topic, you can learn about building towers and bridges, starting with constructing tall towers, then exploring bridges, next we will look at animals as builders and finally research famous engineers and architects and the structures they built.
You probably already know many things about the materials you will encounter and how different materials stretch and their uses. You will use and develop working scientifically skills and understanding though comparative and fair tests, measuring, repeat readings and drawing and reading bar and line graphs.
This week we begin the final part of our investigations about – THE BIG BUILD
Let’s think like engineers- have a look at this time-lapsed video of a building being constructed
Time lapse of Shanghai Tower construction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sCMGhVX5Ts
Time-lapse video shows construction of New York's tallest tower
Can you find other similar time-lapse videos of construction?
Share them on dojo so that we can all have a look..
Working with your Home Learning Partner choose which one you would like to research.
Research is one of the key scientific enquiry activities you need . Here are some question stems you can use - Who built it?
When was it built?
Why did they build it?
Where was it built?
What was it made from?
How did they build it?
Before Next Week here are some ideas to prepare you…
LET’S THINK LIKE SCIENTISTS Use these questions to develop research skills and speaking and listening: What would you have to do to become a structural engineer?
Why does a structural engineer need to have scientific understanding about rocks, soils, forces, earthquakes, the weather?
If you were a structural engineer, what would you like to build?
For your Art..
Over the past weeks you have created your first rough draft for this Arts Award!
Now you can find out more about the ‘Discover’ award..
Once you have looked at what is required with your Home Learning Partner- decide if you want to go ahead and create & complete the necessary portfolio. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU SEND A MESSAGE TO ME OR YOUR CLASS TEACHER BY FRIDAY 10th JULY 2020- THEN WE CAN COMPLETE A FORM TO ENSURE YOU ARE ON THE SCHOOL LIST AND MAKE SURE YOU WILL GET A CERTIFICATE.
This will complete your Art Home-Learning this academic year.

Bonjour! – French Home Learning.
This year we all began a new course to learn French.
In the main Home Learning Resources part of the website you will
Find a ‘push button’ grid which I hope you will find interesting and useful -to help you keep learning this fun language.
This will be your resource for the full term at home.
You should begin at the beginning so always start at Level 1 and then work your way through the same topic.
Because you are Year 3 and 4 - you are not expected to go further than Level 2.However, if you are really enjoying a topic and you feel you can go further- then do!
Take your time and be sure that you can remember the vocabulary from one level before moving onto the next level. Enjoy!
This is how to use the French Home Learning Grid:
Click on the embedded link to open the Home Learning Grid.
Here are some ideas to practise French at Home:
1. Pick and mix from any French topic that you would like to explore from the grid.
2. Level 1 (easy) to Level 4 (challenging). Top Tip – start at Level 1!
3. Use the sound buttons to listen to the words. Listen then repeat.
4. Which words are easy? Which words are difficult?
5. Think of an action for each of these words. Act them and say them.
6. Ask to play Jacques-a-dit at home (Simon Says) with the new French words.
7. You can draw the new words and label them in French. Be creative, make it extra nice!
8. Look for more words to add to the topic from an online dictionary
