Friday 2nd July 2021
Good morning everyone. We are available on Class Dojo if you need us. Here is the work for today. You shouldn't need to print anything off so you can just write on paper for the next few days. This morning you will be completing English all morning.
Today, you are going to write a character description based upon a character from Macbeth.
In this lesson, we will use film clips from Shakespeare's Animated Tales to plan a character description. Next, we will look at the qualities Macbeth possesses at four significant points in the play. To support our assessments of each quality, we will use evidence from the film clips.
In this lesson, we will use the plan from the previous lesson to write about Macbeth's character with a main focus on two aspects of his character: at the start of the play when he is depicted as a warrior and later on when he becomes ambitious. Watch the video below which will show you how to use the plan and the success criteria to write two paragraphs of the character description.
In this lesson, we will use the plan from the previous lesson to write about Macbeth's character with a main focus on the last two aspects of his character: when he turns weak and decides that he wants to abandon his plans and at the end when he is overwhelmed by guilt and starts to hallucinate. Watch this lesson to learn how to use the plan and the success criteria to write two paragraphs of the character description.
Once you have finished your work, use a dictionary to check your spellings and thesaurus to improve your vocabulary.
You can find both links below. You could also add a picture of Macbeth and label it with evidence from the text.
Science - Light
Where do different colours come from?
This afternoon we are going to continue with our Science work about light.
In this lesson, we will be learning how we can see different colours. We will apply our learning of reflection and refraction from previous lessons to understand how rainbows are made. At the end of the lesson there will be a chance to try creating your own rainbow by refracting light! You will need a piece of paper and a pencil for this lesson. If you would like to try making your own rainbow then you will also need a transparent glass of water or an old CD. You can still take part in the lesson if you do not have these items.
Please follow this link to access the lesson - I will also put an external web link at the bottom of the page.
1) Have a go at explaining the different vocabulary in your own words - write some definitions
2) Once you've had a go at refracting light, write a couple of paragraphs to explain what you have learnt about refraction and seeing different colours.
Extension: Complete the exit quiz.
Please spend some time rehearsing for the play. By next Monday you need to know your words off by heart ready for the recording.
Things you can do if you have finished your work:
- Go on Time Tables Rockstars
