Science (Light – creating a sundial)

Last week you completed an experiment on shadows and how light travels. Hopefully you discovered that light is blocked by objects and that makes a shadow – a shadow is the absence of light. You should have found that the closer an object is to the source of light the bigger the shadow.

Shadows from the sun can be used to tell the time in a sundial.

A sundial is an instrument that tells the time like a clock. It has a pole in its center and markings that show hours or fraction of hours. It works on the concept of the sun changing its location in the sky throughout the day.

When the sun shines on the pole, it casts shadows that appear on different markings on the sundial. This instrument is in use since ancient times and was the main indicator of time until the early 19th century. This is still not known exactly who invented the sundial. It is also one of the oldest scientific instruments of the world.

This instrument depends on the rotation and movement of the Sun from east to west.

You can become a sundial in your garden.

  1. Find an empty part of your garden and mark the place where you stand with an ‘X’ in chalk.
  2. Ask someone to draw the outline of your shadow with chalk and write the time next to the shadow.
  3. Measure the length of your shadow with a metre ruler and write it in the table.
  4. Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 at different times in the day. What do you think will happen to your shadow at different times of the day?

Science

Draw a line graph or bar chart below showing the length of your shadow at different times of the day. What happened to your shadow?

 

Have a great day on home learning. I look forward to seeing your day’s activities on the email.

Can you help us identify this moth?

Hello,

My bubble were hoping you could help us with identifying which type of moth this is? I spotted it after school on my way to my car yesterday and it looked a little bit exhausted – it was very big! If you have any idea please email at class.fiveteacher@taw.org.uk

Thank you – Miss Parsons

Edit: Thank you to Scarlet and Mara’s mum and Lucy for letting us know that this is a Hawk Moth, a very impressive creature 🙂

Use the video from Mr T to learn about Cartimandua, The Iron Age Queen of the Brigantes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJjSpJITkf8&feature=youtu.be

Read the letter below, sent from Caractacus to the Queen. Imagine you are Queen Cartimandua and write your reply to Caractacus – what will you say to him? Remember what she did to him, did she help? Look at some of the sentence and paragraph starters that Caractacus uses (As well as…I know that you think…) can you use sentence starters that link your ideas?

Dear Queen,

I am writing to you as we really need your help because the Romans are upon us. We need your army to march south to help us. If they don’t come, we will all die.

The Romans have already reached our lands and have killed so many people, including women and children. We think that over 5,000 brave tribe members have fallen beneath roman swords.

As well as destroying our people, the ruthless Romans have also taken our lands so we can’t farm any more. We have lost more than half of our land. This will mean all of our people will soon die of hunger. This is horrible!

Soon, the Romans will reach us and I fear that we too will be killed. Without your help this will surely happen. If you don’t help us, the Romans will take all our land before marching on to you. Of course, we will not be able to help you as we’ll probably be dead!

I know that you think that the Romans cannot be beaten but I know that they can. Yes – they do have fine weapons and armour, but they are still just men. My men have shown that if you are a brave fighter, the Romans can be killed.

Please come and help us now brave Queen. We really need you NOW!

Caractacus

Have a great day!
