English ‘Found Poetry’

This is an easy way to make a poem from words you can find in a favourite book, even a newspaper or a magazine. It can have a theme if you want or just have words you like the sound of!

 

Click for here the instructions for ‘Found Poetry’.
You could make it look like the art of Tom Phillips [no title: p. 170]
[no title: p. 170] 1970 Tom Phillips born 1937 Presented by the Institute of Contemporary Prints 1975 http://www.tate.org.uk/art/work/P01516
Put the words of your poem on a background that complements your poem.

Art and Design Can you design a new piece of playground apparatus?

It could have swings, a slide, a climbing frame, tunnels…whatever you want!
What materials would you use? What colours? Will the surfaces be smooth, rough, reflective?
You could make it out of junk modelling and paint it. Or maybe use Lego. Or maybe draw it.
I would love to see photos of them!

 

 

Science How is water transported in a plant? How do they ‘drink’?

1)  Watch the video ‘Ivy’s Plant Shop’ on BBC Teach Class Clips
2) You can then do:
Two Coloured Daisy experiment. Click here.

Or the same investigation as Ivy in the BBC video:

 

Simple testHow can we prove that stems transport water?
Place a white carnation and a stick of celery into separate containers of water. Add a dark food colouring like red or blue to the water and mark the water level on the container. Over the next few days observe what happens to the plants and the water. You may want to mark the water level each day. Watch what happens to the water level and watch what happens to the petals of the carnation or the leaves of the celery.

 

Recording
• Draw the stems before and after they have been placed in the water/dye mixture.
• Record the height of the water each day.
• Can you explain what has happened?

 

Other Ideas

  • ‘The Tray Game’ memory game. Click here.
  • Invent a new way to say hello.
Can you invent a new handshake or a way to give someone a ‘high five’ for when schools return? It has to be safe, so make it ‘socially distant’ but also fun!
