What are some uses of light?

In this lesson, we will learn some of the different uses of light. First, we will look at what a periscope is and how it works. Then, we will learn about the different kinds of lenses that help people to see. To finish our lesson, we will learn about shadow puppet theatres and make our own!




When people migrate it can be for different reasons. There are push factors – things that push people away from their homes (such as war) and there are pull factors, things that pull people towards another country (safety).

In this lesson, we will focus on these push and pull factors.

Task 4 Victorian Migration from Ireland

Watch BBC Bitesize video for more information: Migration from Ireland, 1750-1900 Emigration from Ireland was forced by poverty and disease. In England immigrants often faced terrible conditions and racism but were a vital labour force and became an integral part of the population. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zcyymnb/revision/1

Watch BBC Bitesize video for more information: Experiences of immigrants in the Industrial era 1750-1900 Large numbers of migrants fleeing hardship found work in industrial Britain. Most saw their lives improve slowly, though many faced often appalling living conditions and growing racial prejudice. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zykqrdm/revision/2



White Christmas (Makaton version) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZmJjtAnB5A


1 – Watch and study the way the words are communicated with sign language. Compare the performance to last week’s True Colours. What’s the same? What’s different?

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?


I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
“May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white


P.E.  (Day 1 and Day 2 Workouts)
