Monday 23.11.20 – today we will be looking at parenthesis.

We have discussed this in class before, can you remember what it means? Watch the following video to remind yourself what parenthesis is.

Parenthesis – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZJbRaA3LUI  

Spelling:  adjectives ending in -ent and nouns ending in -ence/-ency

Here is a word search that includes the relevant words so you can practise and become more confident – Word Search Black and White 4 – and a handwriting sheet – Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet 4 – so you can have excellent handwriting as well. Do not be hesitant in doing this. Here is an activity so you can put these words into sentences – Spelling Word Match-Up Activity Sheet 4. Be observant when doing this to make sure you spell the words correctly! If you would like the Powerpoint presentation for this, please email me and I can send it to you.


Tuesday 17.11.20 – today you will work on active and passive verbs

This is quite tricky, so you will really need to focus on what the video is telling you.

Topic – Monday 23.11.20:

Look at maps A and B. British Empire maps A and B

What do they show? (The development of British Empire over time, from the 17th century up to the 19th century.) 

In the empire Britain would have gained control of other countries through trade and settlement and then they would have overall control.  

Which countries did Britain control by the 19th century?

Some of these countries have English as the national language because of the historic links to migration from the UK to other parts of the worldIn India, they speak Hindi or Urdu but English is spoken by most educated people. What other things might we have taken with us to change these other countries?  


Dr. Jessica Truman, an archaeologist, has recently made a wonderful discovery at a London excavation site in Hackney. She found an old wooden chest and she believes the information inside holds information about some colonial people and why they may have migrated to Britain.  


Activity: Mystery Chest– Mystery trunk artefacts 1 Mystery trunk artefacts 2

Read the label – It is an address for Karthika Singh, Calcutta, India dated 1909. What do we learn about the owner from that.  

 Now look inside at the objects that belonged to Karthika. Find out as much information as possible about who she was and why she migrated to England from India. 

 Her Story: Karthika is from Calcutta. Her brother was Adesh Singh who went to Britain as a lascar (sailor on a steam ship) and then worked for an English officer before he died, then street musician. He married an English maid as not many Indian women in Britain at that time. Karthika worked on a tea plantation but came to England to work as a maid.   

What was good about England that made people want to come?

(The promise of the empire – powerful images in newspapers and adverts. Possibly desire for adventure on steam ships. Jobs.)

What was difficult in India that made people want to come?

(Life was hard in India. Work was hard too. British encouraged them to go.) 

 Not all migrants from the colonies did so badly. Read about Sake Dean Mohamad at this link:  



Summing up basic: List any ways that we changed the lives of Indian people? List ways that they changed our lives.

Summing up advancing: How different were the lives of British and Indian migrants?  

Summing up deep: Were all Indian migrants treated poorly by the British? Were all British people a higher status to the Indian migrants? Have you seen enough evidence to know? 


Computing – Tuesday 24.11.20:

Part 2 of last week’s lesson.  This week you will actually be putting images on your webpage.

Last week you looked at the terms ‘fair use’ and ‘copyright’. This week you use copyright-free images and will find appropriate images to use in your work.



D and T – Wednesday 25.11.20


What are they? What is their purpose? How are they suited to their design?

Watch youtube about gargoyles. Use ‘gargoyle’ design sheet as a prompt to design own gargoyle -Gargoyles



Music –  Wednesday 25.11.20

True Colours in Sign Language (True Colours – Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake – Trolls – SignSing) 



1 – Watch and study the way the words are communicated with sign language. What else does the performer use apart from his hands?

2- Watch again and see if you can join in when you feel as though you remember a sign.

  1. Watch it again, adding more signs as you do so.
  2. Stop and look at the lyrics without watching the video. Can you sign as you read?

True Colours Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake

You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged, oh I realize
It’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
The darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

Show me a smile then
Don’t be unhappy
Can’t remember when
I last saw you laughing
This world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
Just call me up
‘Cause I will always be there

And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you

So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
I see your true colors
Shining through (true colors)
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful (they’re beautiful)
Like a rainbow
Oh oh oh oh oh…


Science – Thursday 19.11.20

In this lesson, you will be learning how we can see different colours. 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.
