TODAY'S CHAPTER OF EVERNIGHT, BY Ross Mackenzie

Chapter 30: A Bargain

ENGLISH

READING: This week we will share chapters 26-30 of EVERNIGHT, by Ross Mackenzie.  (If there is anyone who hasn't started listening, listen along from chapter 1 and catch up with us)  On our edublog https://stonewithwoodford.edublogs.org/ there is a new padlet where everybody needs to complete a written response after listening each day. In the table below and also above the padlet it explains what you need to write. Mrs McCalmont and me will post comments and you can also add comments to each other's posts some days.

 

Padlet task: https://stonewithwoodford.edublogs.org/

Mon 1st June

Chapter 26: The Second Rescue

 Lara is accused of being a Hag - what is a Hag and why does everyone seem to despise them so much? Are Hags such frightening beings - why is Lara accused of this? Why is it such a crime? What do you think?

In the final paragraph here Lara is bundled away by a dark figure - who do you think this is? Where is he taking her and why?

Tues

Chapter 27: Picking up the Scent

After Shadow Jack had left the shop there might have been another knock at the door and a keen young reporter might have flashed his press card and demanded to interview Old Hans about the escape from the authorities of a young Hag and a visit to his shop by Shadow Jack, a special friend or servant of the most important White witch of all -  Mrs Hester.

Your task is to retell what Old Hans told this persistent reporter - how did he explain the young Hag's visit to his shop and what reason did he give for Shadow Jacks visit not much later?

Wed

Chapter 28: The Weeping Isles Fall

Agata does everything she can to save her young son, who has never seen anything like this. Agata  decides to take the only action that she can - she sends her son ahead, through the woods to a nearby village, where her sister Rebecca lives. She turns to face the threat alone.

Your challenge is to retell what Agata's son tells his aunt when he eventually gets to her home. How will he explain what has happened?

Thu

Chapter 29: The Whitecrows

Your challenge today is to write in 100 words - How to spot a Witch - a chapter that appears in a book in the book shelf. This edition of 'The Encyclopeadia of Magic' was written by the grandfather of Mrs Whitecrow and has recently been updated since the problems in the Silver Kingdom when White Witches became controlled by Mrs Hester and lost their souls. What is it that seperates White witches from the Witches that Mrs Hester's supporters call Hags?

Fri

Chapter 30: A Bargain

Use the internet or books to find pictures of boats that might be suitable for the long journey.
Your challenge today is to draw or paint a picture of  the sailing boat that is waiting at the docks getting ready for departure. Take a picture of your work and upload to the padlet.
Click on the pink circle to get your post it, write your first name at the top and either use the camera option on the post it or take a photo and upload it.

 

 

WRITING

POBBLE365: How about writing from a Pobble365 picture prompt? On Pobble365 there is a picture for every day of the year. This week's 5 pictures, with their associated ideas, are attached below. Type your piece into edublog or write it and send it via Seesaw. CLICK HERE TO GO STRAIGHT TO TODAY'S POBBLE365 PICTURE AND IDEAS

100 WORD CHALLENGE: You should also complete the 100 word challenge CLICK HERE FOR 100 WORD CHALLENGE (if you post your writing on edublog we can see it there OR you might prefer to write on paper and use the Seesaw app to send me a photo of your work!)

RADIOBLOGGING: Listen daily at 9:30-10:30 (or later if you can't listen live) to Pie Corbett and Deputy Mitchell on Radioblogging.net and join in with all the fun things to do.  Each programme starts with a couple of games to have a go at, then they often have a visiting author or poet who reads some of their work and you get the chance to comment on what you hear. There is also the chance for you to work on your best sentences and post them on a post-it on a padlet. The main writing tasks are explained near to the end of the programme; you complete 1 or more of these and post it onto the site for us and other people to read and comment on later. FOR RADIOBLOG CLICK HERE 

WRITING PROJECTS: Another idea for those of you who don't always have use of a computer for the radioblog or those who are looking for new writing ideas, I have attached 2 booklets of writing tasks (called THE GAME and MARIA RHI), where a 'virtual teacher' guides you through tasks. You don't have to do every task, but there are some great ones to try. If you submit them to edublog we can see them, or if you are working on paper, why not photograph your writing and send it to me on Seesaw? (See the tab on how to use Seesaw)

SPELLING: Find this week's lists attached below. Remember that a little practice each day is needed, then test yourself on Friday. You can also do SUMDOG spelling games.

THIS WEEK'S TOPIC: Science and Music

Half of this week's topic work continues our science theme of The Human Body. You will be learning about the pulse and how exercise effects the pulse rate and finding out more about how the heart pumps body around our bodies. (If you did not complete the science work in the WC 11.5.20 then it would be sensible to do that first, as this week's work follows on)

The other half of the topic work is music. Scroll down to find a link to a daily music session. Each music lesson has a song to learn - where the lyrics are on the screen for you to sing along with. Each days lesson has a selection of activities for you to choose between.

SCIENCE: THE HUMAN BODY

The Pulse

TASK 1: Continuing our science work on the heart, we look this week at the pulse. Watch this video about how to take your pulse and find out a bit more about why our hearts pump blood around our bodies. Then practise taking your own pulse (in your neck or on your wrist).

Our Pulse

TASK 2: CARRY OUT AN INVESTIGATION
 

OUR QUESTION: What is the effect of exercise on our pulse rate?

Watch the Powerpoint presentation and use it to guide you through the experiment about our pulse.

  1. Slides 8-15 will guide you through which exercises/activities to do, how to measure your pulse and then you record your findings in the results table. (attached below)
  2. Use the results of this to draw a bar graph of your pulse rate as you completed the different exercises/activities.
  3. Watch BBC SCIENCE CLASS CLIPNow try experiment 2: Note your resting pulse from experiment 1. Now run or skip for 10 minutes. Record your pulse rate immediately after. Take your pulse every 2 minutes and record it on activity sheet 2. Continue to take your pulse every 2 minutes until your pulse has returned to your resting pulse. How long did it take to go back to your resting rate?
  4. On recording sheet 2 draw a line graph to show your pulse rate as it returned to normal.

TASK 3: Watch the 3 animations then write a GLOSSARY with definitions for all the vocabulary listed below the 3rd video.

Beating Heart Animation: How a Normal Heart Works

Listen out for the names of the 4 chambers of the heart. (This is an advert for a hospital - but I've chosen it as it has a super graphic of the heart, where it highlights each chamber nicely)

The Heart and Circulatory System - How They Work

Notice how the oxygen rich (oxygenated) blood is shown as RED and the oxygen poor (deoxygenated) blood is BLUE

These colours will be used in the model of the heart you will make later.

 

The Human Heart

Look out for the valves inside the heart. (If you didn't make a model of a heart valve, there are instructions in the WC 11.5.20)

This animation shows the journey of the blood within the heart and throughout the body. Don't worry about all the complicated vocaulary. These are the words you DO need to understand:

  • heart
  • organ
  • chamber
  • atrium
  • ventricle
  • valve
  • oxygenated blood (oxygen rich blood)
  • deoxygenated blood (oxygen poor blood)

MUSIC: Songs and related activities

Out of the Ark MUSIC: Listen to and learn a song each day and then choose your own follow up activities from CHALLENGE, TALK ABOUT or SHARE IT or create your own piece of work inspired by the DID YOU KNOW? facts (click on the pic and navigate to week 1)

MOVE IT MONDAY

START THE DAY WITH EXERCISE

CHALLENGE Think of some actions you could do to accompany each verse of this song. For example: • Stretch arms in a rainbow motion • Knees up high • Jog on the spot

TALK ABOUT Talk about how many different types of exercise there are. What could you do around the house and garden to keep active? Make a list such as hopping, star jumps, side bends etc.

SHARE IT If you have space, with your family members, how about creating an obstacle course using objects you have lying around e.g. jumping over cushions on the floor or throwing a ball in a bucket. Try timing each other to see how quickly everyone can complete the course and if each person can improve on their time each day.

TOGETHER ON TUESDAY

TOGETHER

CHALLENGE Can you think of some actions to go with the verbs in each verse (play, work, sing, move)? Once the song is learnt, omit the ‘action’ word and just perform the action instead.

TALK ABOUT With other family members, discuss what tasks you could do together around the house to help e.g. laying the table, making the beds or cooking.

SHARE IT Bounce the ball to one another to the beat of the music. Bounce the ball to your partner on beat one for them to catch on beat two. Continue bouncing the ball to each other in time with music as the song continues (so you’ll be bouncing on beats one and three, and catching on beats two and four).

WELL BEING WEDNESDAY

I'M OK

CHALLENGE Experience life ‘in someone else’s shoes’ for a day. Choose a part of your body that you cannot use for the whole day – it could be a hand, an arm, tying two fingers together, your voice, or you might decide to go blindfolded with a helper. Whatever you choose, decide upon the length of time you are going to keep it up and stick to it.

TALK ABOUT After completing your challenge, discuss how the day’s disability made you feel. Were there things you needed others’ help to do? Did your family look at you strangely? Discuss how this might make you react differently to others with disabilities in the future.

SHARE IT Answer these questions about what makes you ‘you’, and share them with your friends and family. Ask them to answer the same questions. How varied are all the answers? 1. What’s your favourite food? 2. How long is your middle finger? 3. Who is your favourite musician? 4. What’s your favourite season? 5. What’s the one hobby you couldn’t give up? 6. Can you touch your nose with your tongue? 7. What are you most proud of yourself for? 8. What is the first thing you do after you’ve woken up in the morning? 9. What is your favourite subject at school? 10.What is your favourite song?

THINKING THURSDAY

LIVING AND LEARNING

CHALLENGE We have 24 hours allocated to each day due to the rotation of the earth on its axis. If you have a globe and torch, use these to show the tilt of the earth and how night turns to day. As an experiment to track the rotation of the earth, make your own flowerpot sundial using: • Lengths of cane, dowelling or strong plastic • Large flowerpots with labels to write on around the inside edge • Earth or sand Place the cane in the flowerpot and fill the pot with sand to ensure that the cane is straight and secure. Position the flowerpot in a sunny location so that each hour, exactly on the hour, you see where the shadow crosses the pot cane and mark the time on the pot throughout one day e.g. 10:00, 11:00, etc. 

TALK ABOUT Investigate and talk about different changes that can take place within the natural world such as the seasons and living things like caterpillars, tadpoles and flowering plants.

SHARE IT Draw a poster showing the life cycle of a frog or the ways that life is reproduced in plants and animals. Can you put this up in your window for others to see, or share it with family members via video chat?

THE BONKERS SONG

CHALLENGE Part 2 in this song is a real tongue-twisting challenge. Look up some other tongue twisters to try. Here’s one to get you started: Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread. Spread it thick, say it quick! Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread. Spread it thicker, say it quicker! Yellow butter, purple jelly, red jam, black bread. Don’t talk with your mouth full!

TALK ABOUT Over teatime, talk about the most bonkers thing you can possibly imagine. Take a vote on who around the table has the most bonkers imagination!

SHARE IT See if you can teach your friends The Bonkers Song over a video chat.

FAMILY SATURDAY (if you fancy getting the whole family involved...)

I'VE GOT A CARDBOARD BOX

CHALLENGE Find as many empty cardboard boxes as you can in the house – the bigger the better. Can you make any of the following from what you’ve found? A cardboard guitar A car A castle A marble run An indoor dog house/pet home A rocket Large letters to spell your name

TALK ABOUT Where you would like to go if you could make a car/rocket/boat out of a cardboard box. Describe what it’s like in as much detail as you can…

FAITH-FILLED SUNDAY

AS THE SUN RISES

CHALLENGE ‘As the sun rises on a new day, may our hearts say “God is good to us!”’ With a world of difficulties and anxieties, it’s really easy to focus on the problems when we wake up. Create a new gratitude routine together at the start of the day. When does that work best for you? In bed? Over breakfast? • Choose how you want to record and remember every detail you can be grateful for (e.g. write/draw/ photograph/put it in a song). • Begin to make it a daily family habit and choose how you want to track your progress. 

TALK ABOUT • What are the first few things you each do when you wake up? • What are some of the things that you do every day or are guaranteed to happen every day (e.g. sleep/get dressed/brush your teeth/sun rising/sun setting)? Today’s song is partly based on a verse in the Bible (in the book of Lamentations, chapter 3, verses 21-22), which talks about something that is guaranteed/promised to happen every new day: ‘Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning’. Talk about how you can remind yourself of God’s goodness, as you wake up.
