Home learning Friday 15th November 2019

This week I would like to complete pages 29 and 14 of your maths books (group 1) and pages 12 and 13 (group 2).

I would also like you to design a brand new invention and complete the following worksheet to help you do this. The sheet will help us in our class work next week so make sure you have this by Tuesday. Creativity is a must! Do not create an invention that already exists.

One of the best ways to collect ideas for developing an innovation or invention is to brainstorm. Use the questions below to generate some ideas for a new invention

1.       Think of simple products, machines, or devices in your life. Make a list of everyday inventions that make life more convenient or better than it was in the past. (Example: screw-top bottles, remote controls, portable battery for phone, etc.)

 

2.       • ________________________________________

3.       • ________________________________________

4.       • ________________________________________

5.        • ________________________________________

6.       • ________________________________________

7.       • ________________________________________

8.        • ________________________________________

9.       • ________________________________________

2. Think about your life at home, work, school, etc. What are some problems you would like to solve?

• At home: ______________________________________________________________________________

• At work: _______________________________________________________________________________

• At school: ______________________________________________________________________________

• At (              ): _____________________________________________________________________________

3.

Now, brainstorm a list of possible new inventions. List all of your ideas and make notes about what they do. Use the other side of this page to pick your favourite idea and design it! Use annotations and diagrams to help bring your idea to life. Remember to be creative!

• Why it was innovative

• What the benefits of the invention have been

• Whether there have been/ will be any negative effects of the innovation

Please include images (whether from the internet or hand drawn) and make sure your work is presented beautifully.

Home learning – always due the following Tuesday!

Please complete pages 24 and 25 (or 21 and 22 group 2) of your maths books.

Next week we will be looking at different types of extreme weather; for your home learning this week, I would like you to become an expert on ONE type of extreme weather! You must be able to explain what they are (include a definition), the damage that could be caused and where (or when) they are most likely to happen.

 

You will then share what you know with the class. Make sure you make lots of notes so that you are able to refer to them next week.

 

You can choose from the following:

Hurricane

Cyclone

Typhoon

Flood

Tornado

Hail

Blizzard

Lightning

 

Make sure you challenge yourself! Choose a weather type that you know LEAST about!

 

I can’t wait to hear all about them!
