Spelling:

These are going to be your spelling words to learn this week:

Dangerous, hazardous, poisonous, riotous, mountainous, perilous, joyous, momentous, synonymous, scandalous

NB: On Friday, test your child on how they have done with learning to spell these words.

 

Task One – complete the handwriting task that is attached below (it is important that we are still working on our handwriting and using joined writing in our work).

Spelling Handwriting Practice

NB: if you can’t print the work out then complete your handwriting practice in a book of your choice.

Task Two – use your spelling words in sentences (there are 10 words so you will need to write 10 sentences).

 

Afternoon Learning Activities:

These tasks are a mix of History, Art, PE, PSHE and Music. Choose at least TWO tasks to complete from the list below:

  1. Lean On Me – listen to Lean On Me, a Soul/Gospel song by Bill Withers.
    • Do you like it?
    • What instruments can you hear?
    • Can you clap a rhythm?

Learn to sing the lyrics and have a go at performing the song. Research the famous artist in more detail and listen to more of his songs. Create an artist profile complete with portrait sketch

  1. Musical Makes – create your own music instrument. You could make your own pan flute using straws, a cereal box guitar, or some tin can drums. Plan your design first, source materials from around the house, write the steps to make the product and then evaluate it afterwards. Or you could research Kandinsky and create your own instrument art inspired by his work whilst listening to different genres of music.

 

  1. Feel the Beat – move your body to different genres of music. As you change between Rock, Jazz, Hip Hop, Heavy Metal and Classical music, how does the way you move your body change? Have a dance together to the beat of the music!

 

  1. Listen Together – ask each family member what their favourite song is. Play the song aloud and listen together. Spend some time as a family discussing what genre of music the songs belong to and how each piece of music makes you feel. Which genres of music were the most popular? Can your child represent their results in a bar chart?

 

  1. Musical Movie Time – choose an age-appropriate musical to watch. Andrew Lloyd Webber is now posting filmed versions of his shows on his Youtube channel The Shows Must Go On! each week! Discuss the story behind the musical and step into the shoes of different characters and imagine how they are feeling. Which is your favourite song from the film/show and why? Can you create a billboard poster advertising the show? Or perhaps design a ticket?
