Please remember to come back and check your blog work, as you will have some teacher feedback.
Maths (60 minutes)
Today we are moving on to looking at tables. Watch the video lesson.
- you should pause the video when the teacher says and try the tasks on paper.
- You can watch each section as many times as you need.
Now try the worksheet.
English (75 minutes)
Read the text
I’ve recorded the text again, and explained what is happening in this powerpoint
Summarise what is happening, in your own words.
A few bulletpoints should be enough to explain what is happening.
Why does Oberon want Puck to put the love potion on Demetrius? Explain your answer.
Why does Oberon want to put the love potion on Titania? Give evidence for you answer.
Do you think Oberon is right to use the love potion in either of these cases? Explain why you think this- this is your opinion and the answer is NOT in the text.
Science- (90 minutes)
Water as a Solvent
A solvent is a liquid that is able to dissolve another substance; however, some liquids are better solvents than others. The Earth’s most important solvent is water – it is capable of dissolving more substances than any other liquid.
Water is an essential component of our planet and is vital to every living thing on Earth. It is a colourless and odourless substance which covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface and accounts for up to 90% of the mass of some living things (60% of an adult human body is water!).
Why is water so important as a solvent?
Water’s ability to dissolve so many substances is crucial to all life. Wherever water goes – underground, through streams or through living organisms – it takes along with it the substances that it has dissolved. For instance:
- The salt in seawater creates ocean habitats which are home to a huge variety of plants and animals.
- Water which flows through the ground contains dissolved minerals and nutrients which are taken up by the roots of plants to help them grow and remain healthy. These then form an important part of the diet of animals (remember your work on food chains!).
- The mineral fluoride is dissolved in the tap water we drink and helps to prevent tooth decay.
- Saliva is formed from water which contains dissolved enzymes (can you remember why these are so important from your work on digestion?).
- The carbohydrates and proteins we get from our food are dissolved in water in the blood to be used all over the body (again – you will have learned about this in your work on digestion).
This afternoon’s investigation.
We are going to look at dissolving and evaporating again.
You will need
- A wide container for water ( a casserole dish, bowl or jug will be fine)
- Water (solvent)
- A teaspoon of salt/ sugar (solute)
- Something to measure with- a ruler, wooden stick with regular marks made on it.
- Pen and paper for a quiz
Step 1- I added my sugar and mixed until the sugar dissolved into my water to make a solution. You can tell it’s dissolved because you can’t see any of the sugar any more.
Step 2- measure the height of your solution
Step 3- create your table or graph to record your results
Step 4- record today’s results
Step 5- put your jug/ container somewhere safe- in warmer places it will evaporate quicker
Step 6- measure every day until the water all evaportates, and remember to add your new measurements.
You can record your investigation using a table, lay it out like mine and we can add our new measurements on each day.
Here is my graph. Remember you need the number of days along the horizontal axis, and the vertical axis should show the height of your water today- it won’t get any higher than that, that’s why we’re starting at the top and our line will go down a bit each day.
Spellings (30 minutes)
Yesterday we saw that some of our words have the ence spelling and some have the ance spelling.
For each of these words, find out it’s meaning/ definition, put it into a sentence and practise it 3 times.
