5) Watch the rest of the video and pause it when it tells you.

 

6) Try to do workbook questions 1-7. 

It is OK to round your measurements to the nearest cm.

Leave question 5 until the end and only do that if you have time. 

If you need to do workings-out, do them neatly in your workbook.

BBC Bitesize site also has a section on fossils. Go to this link. There is a short video with accompanying information, an activity and a short quiz.

Music

Yesterday you were learning about fossils.  A French composer called Camille Saint-Saens composed a piece of music about fossils in 1886.  Have a listen to the music in the first video below. 

 

  • Notice how he chose high-pitched instruments with short sounds to make us think of fossils and bones.
  • Which nursery rhyme can you hear in the middle of the piece?

 

The fossils music was part of a suite (a set) of music called The Carnival of the Animals.  Have a listen to the piece in the second video called The Royal March of the Lion.

 

How does Saint-Saens make you imagine a lion?  Think about

  • the tempo (speed) of the music;
  • the beat (or pulse).  Is it fast or slow?
  • the pitch.  Is it high or low?
  • the dynamics.  Is this music quiet or loud?
  • the notes the violins and pianos play.  Do they remind you of some things that lions do?

 

If you had to compose music about an elephant, what tempo, pitch, dynamics and instruments would you choose?  Why?

RE: What Is Lent?

I wonder how many pancakes you had on Shrove Tuesday during half- term? I hope that you enjoyed them and maybe even got to try and flip one in a pan!

 

But do you know why we have Shrove Tuesday and how it links to all of our RE work this term?

 

1) Read the PowerPoint about Lent.

2) Have you given anything up for Lent? Go to Slide 11.

3) Draw a picture of something you have given up for Lent (or something you would find difficult to give up).

4) Explain why this is so hard to do. It is only hard if it is something you like, you do not give up something you don’t like because then there would be no hardship!
