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.

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!

Please follow the link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/ztfrsk7 for the videos for Year 4 learning today. The activity for this lesson can be found here:

Y4 Maths – Data

Activity 2 Make a chart

Look around your home and find some data that can be shown using a bar chart, pictogram or table. Which would be the best way to show your data? For example, can you show the amount of knives, forks and spoons in the drawer? What would be the best way to show the colours of your pens and pencils? What are the pros and cons of using the different ways to visualise the data? You could show your data using Purple Mash.

Y5 – Angles

Watch the video about angles. Can you answer the questions on the maths section? If you don’t have a protractor at home, then you can name the angles on the sheet. However, if you do, then please write the names of the angles and what they measure.

Y5 Naming and measuring angles

Science (Light – investigation on shadows)

Use the Bitesize website to learn about light sources and how light travels https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zbssgk7/articles/z2s4xfr

When an object passes in front of a beam of light, the light can be blocked and makes a shadow. Opaque objects let no light through, translucent objects let some light through and transparent object let all light through. You are going to find out more about light and shadow by using different investigations. You can investigate:

  • How does an object’s distance from the light source affect its shadow?
  • How does the angle at which the light source shines on an object affect its shadow?
  • How does an object’s distance from the wall affect its shadow?
  • How does the translucency of an object affect its shadow?

Pick one of these investigations and write:

  • Title
  • Equipment List
  • What you are going to change (your variable)
  • What you are going to keep the same
  • Your prediction
  • Your results
  • Your conclusion

Have a super day of learning and remember to email any photos you would like to share with your class to class.twoteacher@taw.org.uk
