Lesson 3 and 4 is for today.


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 had some issues with the game yesterday (find out more in the pupdate!) but I am looking for people to beat me! My personal best is now 66. Bring it on!



For your English task, I would like you to write a set of instructions for how to construct your Rube Goldberg Machine and how it works. When writing your instructions, use your design ideas from yesterday to help you by using your labels, etc...

Remember to use fronted adverbials in your steps that are not just next, after, then (be adventurous!) and use a range of adverbs, imperative (bossy) verbs, punctuation and parentheses.

I have included some 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 construct your own version of a Rube Goldberg Machine to fulfil a purpose. You will need to ensure that your structures involved are stable so that they do not fall or break, and that your materials used are suitable for what you are trying to achieve. Could you use something that involves electronics? Could you have something that lights up or moves from your own created circuit?

Evaluate how your machine worked and decide what did or did not go to plan! Then make changes to make it better.

I have an evaluation sheet to help you decide on how to make it better, below.
