If anybody would like to have a game of Times Tables Rock Stars, I propose that at 10:45am-11:15am and/or 2:15pm-2:45pm you log on and we can try and get some games going against each other. I have put two times in case there are some of you who can't get on at one of those times and we will play daily!

I am looking for people to beat me! My personal best is now 75. Bring it on!

 

English:

For your English task, you have a choice of activities. You can either use this time to film and edit (using Adobe spark/windows movie maker/another video editing software) your tv advert that you have written a script for or write a poem of your choosing, using the subjunctive form.

TV advert:

Remember that this advert will need to 'sell' the Machine by telling people why they NEED it or WANT it. Notice the capitals there to emphasise that this could be life-changing for them and that they MUST buy your product.

This advert must be persuasive, should give the buyer all of the reasons why they need to buy it and even give them reasons why not buying it is not a good thing!

You could mention:

  • how this could save time, money, energy, etc...,
  • limited time offers,
  • additional offers (get ____ free/half price),
  • the unique selling point (why this is the one to buy and not any other),
  • the type of customer that this is aimed at.

Think about some of the best adverts that you have seen on TV, have a look at some of the examples and resources below and see if you can make a 30 second advert. (It can be longer or shorter, don't worry!)

When filming, remember to be engaging, be persuasive, look at the camera, use your tone of voice to sell your product and make people want to be your machine.

I have seen some fantastic scripts and some great ideas for machines so I may have to a Dragon's Den style decision if I want to buy it!

 

Poem:

If you decide to write a poem instead of filming your advert then you can but you must use the subjunctive form. I have included bits below on what subjunctive form is but, put simply, it is a more formal way of giving an idea of how something could or should happen.

e.g. If I were an astronaut, I would want to go to Mars.

If I were a designer, I would design cars. 

If I were the seller, that would be sold.

If I were you, I would do as I am told!

You poem does not have to rhyme but for this to work, do your best to following a rhyming pattern AABB (first two lines rhyme and the second two lines rhyme), ABAB (first and third line rhyme and second and fourth rhyme) or another rhyming pattern if you are feeling adventurous!

Try to make your poem fit a theme or subject if you can (mine did not!) and see how it goes!

Your spellings are at the bottom again and give yourself a spelling test on the words you have practised! Good luck!

 

PSHE:

For your PSHE task, I would like you to watch some of the videos I have left below and go through the PowerPoint presentation from the St. John's Ambulance website (https://www.sja.org.uk/) that reminds you of the primary survey and recovery position. This could be very important one day and using this could potentially save a life, if it is needed. You could practise the recovery position with someone (or a teddy) to make sure that you are doing it correctly. The website does have other videos for KS1 and KS3 that you may want to have a look at (with a parent) but our focus is the primary survey and recovery position so don't feel that you have to go through it all.
