Home Learning 2.3.21

Good morning and happy Tuesday

It has been lovely sharing work with you over the past few weeks whether it be by email, virtual call or phone call. Remember there is still time to get in touch whether you want to send some work through via email, go over some learning over google meets or have a quick phone call with an adult. Please do get in touch and I’ll be happy to arrange.

Today’s Learning


Warm Up:

Yesterday we investigated what a co-ordinate was and why we use them. Today we are going to draw out our own graph making sure we label the axis and then plot labelled co-ordinates on it.

Your graph should look a bit like this:

You can choose what scale you use and what number you go up to but remember to do this same for your y and x axis.

This may be easier to draw on squared paper but if you do not have access to squared paper at home either do it on lined or plain and draw the lines you need.

Once you have drawn your co-ordinates grid you can start adding co-ordinates to it. You can either label them on the graph or use a key below the graph.

Remember that the horizontal line goes first when writing co-ordinates, then a comma and then the vertical line and these are usually written in brackets.

Re-watch the video from yesterday if you need reminding.


Warm Up:

Yesterday in English we were thinking of our own inventions and hopefully by now you have thought of a name for it. Today we are going to take that a step forward. You need to start to design your invention.

This includes researching how much your materials are going to cost. If you were just to make one (a prototype) how much will this cost? How many people will it take to build one? How much time will it take?

Design your product on a piece of paper for now and label all the materials you are going to need and their prices. Also write a brief description of what it is and how it is going to work. (You can make the prices up if you wish)

Here is an example of one without the prices:

Cake! Ohhh how we love cake!

Do you know that the sponge cake which is enjoyed by many was actually invented in 1615 (not in the Victorian time frame) 

However, what sets aside the Victoria sponge is the invention of baking powder in 1813 by Alfred Bird, an Englishman who was involved in food manufacturing.

The rather clever invention of baking powder allows cakes to rise and allows more butter to be included in recipes.

Take a look at the ingredients of a Classic Victoria Sponge.  

You are now going to think of a way you can alter this classic recipe.  You may want to change the flavour of the buttercream, the flavour or even colour of the sponge!

Draw it, write the list of ingredients, maybe you could even bake it!

We would love to see your amazing ideas!

Have a great day,
