 P.E Thursday 9th July


This week is Super Hero week boys and girls!  Your Daily Activities and PE will all be based around Super Heroes that you will all know.  You may dress up as a super hero.  You can even make a cape with a pillow case and create and make your own mask.  So it is time to raise the stakes and access your super powers for some super exercise to keep fit this week.  It does not matter if the clips are a boy or girl super hero, the challenge is can you keep up?  For your main session this week you will have a choice of clips to choose from.  Your challenge is to complete at least 3 of these.  Please send your teachers any photo's or clips of you doing the super moves.  Have a great fun active week GPS and we shall see you as soon as we can for a super PE lesson for real.

1. Watch the video.

2. Choose two aphid predators from yesterday.

3. Using your notes, videos, texts, and diagrams from yesterday...

  1.  Draw the aphid predator
  2.  Magnify the predatory features
  3.  Label the part of the creature

Reading and Science Tuesday 30th June

Yesterday we thought about the dangers of an aphid infestation. Many countries find it difficult to grow food due to their climate and an infestation of aphids could wipe out any crops and plants meaning there would be no food. No need to worry because their are mini beats that feed on aphids and keep nature in balance.


1. Write the Reading and Science L.O: I can identify why these creatures are successful predators 

2. Using the sources of information, make notes on how each aphid predator preys on aphids. Write the name of the aphid predator as the subheading then make notes underneath.

  • Watch the videos
  • Read the text.
  • Study the diagrams.

Music - Wednesday 10th June

Here's some interesting stuff...

"Dancing in the Street" is a song written by Marvin GayeWilliam "Mickey" Stevenson and Ivy Jo Hunter. It first became popular in 1964 when recorded by Martha and the Vandellas, whose version reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the USA, and peaked at No. 4 in the UK Singles Chart. It is one of Motown's signature songs and is the group's premier signature song. Have a listen. What else happened in the 1960s?

David Bowie, who wrote and recorded A Space Oddity (remember?), recorded Dancing in the Street in 1985 with Mick Jagger, who is the singer for the pop group The Rolling Stones. They recorded it to raise money for Live Aid. The money raised helped many starving families in Ethiopia, Africa. Listen by clicking below, and think about which of the two versions you like best, and why.

The Motown record company made and sold the Martha and the Vandellas version of Dancing in the Streets. The Four Tops were another group who were signed up with Motown. The song below has some similarities with Dancing in the Street. What do you think the similarities are? 

The video shows a turntable, also called a record player, with the record of 'I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch), performed by The Four Tops, playing on it. From the 1920s to the 1980s, turntables and records (made from a plastic called vinyl) were the most popular way of listening to recorded music. Why do you think records were so popular?

'Motown' is a nickname for a US city called Detroit. It is a shortening of 'Motor Town'. It was called this because it had many car factories. The biggest of these were General Motors and Ford. The factories were massive, and many of the factory workers were the descendants of slaves who had, a long time before, been brought to America. The Motown record company is very famous for promoting black artists like Stevie Wonder, The Jackson Five and Diana Ross.

Minibeast hunt

1. Write the Science and Geography L.O: I can draw and label a map using a key.

4. Imagine you are a bird looking down and have a go at sketching a map of your chosen place (you could use google maps to help).

5. Look at the map and key below. A key allows you to see where a particular feature is/was found.

6. Go on your minibeast hunt, use a key to plot where you found the minibeast e.g you may find 3 spiders all in different places, you could draw a spider in the key and then draw the spiders on the map in the places you found them.
