Creative Curriculum

This half term we have been learning about sound. Today you will be carrying out a ‘Sound Survey’ at home.

Take a walk around indoors to identify and describe the sounds you can hear. What is making each sound? Are they high or low, loud and quiet?

Fill in the table by describing the sounds you can hear using the annotation tools on Showbie.

How did these sounds reach your ear? Choose one of the sounds to write or draw about.

Use the website link to help you use the correct scientific vocabulary.

CREATIVE CURRICULUM

In class, we listed to the music of Claude Debussy, a French composer. We listened to Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune and drew a picture of the faune dreaming. Claude Debussy wrote many other beautiful and memorable pieces of music.

Find out about his life and create a poster about him, his unusual music style and the music he wrote. You could draw some more pictures on it to go with different pieces of his music and some of the instruments he used for his music such as the flute and the piano. Can you write a fact file to accompany your poster? You may find the following internet links useful. You will be able to listen to Clare de lune and other pieces of music by him.

Days 1-3

Maths

Every day, make sure you log on to Mathletics and complete the activities your class teacher has set for you.

Do this for about 30 to 45 minutes per day.

Then you can play “Live Mathletics” for a while. Why don’t get your parents to let your class mates know when you’ll be on line and you will be able to play against each other?

It’s going to be very important that you get faster at recalling your times tables accurately, so go to this website to practise your speed tests

https://www.timestables.co.uk

Practise the 8s and 12s on their own particularly.

Reading

Read some of your book everyday.

Now complete this activity:

A LIFETIME TALE IN PICTURES

  • Draw the main character from a book you have recently read. Show them as a baby, middle aged and as an older person.
  • Underneath each picture write what you think they might be doing at that point of their life, and explain why they may be doing so.
  • For example if you drew Harry Potter as a baby, he might be casting spells on his mum to feed him lots of yummy food.

You could print and complete the following template to help you:
