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!
No one has been able to beat me yet! My personal best is 55. Bring it on!
For your English task, I would like you to research and record ideas for a 'Rube Goldberg Machine'. I have listed some websites for you to have a look at and get some inspiration.
Find out about who Rube Goldberg was and what he designed. These machines will be the focus for this week where you will be writing instructions, creating your own Rube Goldberg Machine, creating videos, a cartoon strip and an advert to go along with it.
I have included some comprehension bits below that may be useful!
There is a spelling list below for you to practise. I do not expect you to practise all of the spellings on the list. I would select maybe 7 or 8 from each section to practise. I would suggest that you try them and see which ones you know you need to work on!
For your DT task today, I would like you to devise your own version of a Rube Goldberg Machine to fulfil a purpose. You will need to draw an annotated diagram with labels, directions shown and explanations of what each part does and how it works.
I have added an example of an annotated diagram below for you. You will be creating your own machine this week and filming it in action, fulfilling its purpose (hopefully!) so think carefully about what you have available and how it will work.
