PROPERTIES AND CHANGES OF MATERIALS.
- Compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity(electrical and thermal) and response to magnets
- Know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution.
- Give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, inc metals, woods, plastic.
- Demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes.
- Explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda.
ICT Opportunities Digital Media and Tools
- Explore the variables in a range of simulations and relate to real life applications and situations
- Explain some of the rules behind a simulation and why it was made
Second half term used for covering class misconception and gaps.
Lessons to be based on assessment data.
ICT Opportunities: Digital Media and Tools
- Use digital still and film cameras to record and event or process
- Change the basic settings on a digital camera including flash, macro, zoom etc
- Locate the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn on a map.
- Know the vegetation that occurs in the rainforest.
- Know the vocabulary ‘longitude’ and ‘latitude’ and know that this is measured in degrees.
- Know the basic geography of the rainforest.
- Know that rainforests are along the equator.
- Identify the countries that have rainforests.
- Identify layers of the rainforest.
- Recognise the types of animals that live in the rainforest.
- Know how land in the rainforest is used.
- Look at how land use in the rainforest has changed over time.CROSS CURRICULAR:
- Have a debate about the rainforest and how it should be used
- Recount of a visit to London Zoo
- Write an advert for the Rainforest
- Write a documentary scrip about the Rainforest
- Present data on rainfall in the rainforest
- Use degrees to calculate the distance between areas and their latitude/longitudeArt: PRINTING (USING THE RAINFOREST AS INSPIRATION)
- Create printing blocks by simplifying an initial sketch book idea.
- Use relief or impressed method.
- Create prints with three overlays.
- Work into prints with a range of media e.g pens, colour pens and paints.
CHALLENGE ACTIVITIES FOT THE MORE ABLE:
- Create prints with more detail and complexity
- Explore a selection of styles of printing and decide which one is the best for the task and how it links to the rainforest.
- Discuss how you would create printing blocks to fit the chosen style
D.T: TEXTILES; EMBROIDER A SCENE FROM RAINFOREST.
- Sketch and model ideas.
- Make prototypes.
- Understand pattern lay out.
- Decorate textiles appropriately before joining components.
- Pin and tack fabric pieces together.
- Join fabrics by blanket stitch and back stitch.
- Make quality products.
- Make suggestions how their design can be improved.
CHALLENGE ACTIVITIES FOT THE MORE ABLE:
- Use more complex types of stitching for adding details to their scene
- Evaluate which fabrics work best for decorating and which are best to stitch and embroider.Music:
- Pupils should play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and playing musical instruments with increasing accuracy and fluency.
- Improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the interrelated dimensions of music.
- Listen with attention to detail, recall sounds using aural memory.
- Use and understand staff and other musical notations.
- Appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians.
- Develop an understanding of the history of music.Computing:
- Describe and analyse more complex control systems in the real world, including sensors and user interaction
- Use a data logging device as a part of an investigation or experiment in Science or Geography
- Use a control box connected to a computer to control a physical system – eg traffic lights
- Create a simple control system with sensors, inputs and outputs, on screen and/or as a physical system
- Work systematically to identify and correct errors and problems in their own and others programsPE: dance, athletics, tennis and gymnastics
