English Task

Today's English task continues to look at the language of poetry and even has you creating your own poem. This poem has to be based around something that you really dislike, but please do not base it around a person. We do not want to hurt anyone's feelingssad. It should be about an object or idea that you really cannot stand. Be sure to use your imagination and have fun with it. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Science Task

 

Today's science tasks involves you writing a composition about the topic of fossils. Think back to what you have learnt in the previous lessons (they are still available on the class page) and use this to aid your writing. I have included some of the previous videos on fossils to refresh your memory, you can find them below. The guidance for this piece of writing can be found directly under the video clips. This will conclude our work on fossils before we start on a new part of Adaption Inheritance and Evolution.

English Task

Today's English task is full of excitement and adventure. It uses 'Sinbad the Sailor' to explore the use of conjunctions.

 

The story of Sinbad was used to explore the adventure genre in both story and cinema. If you ask your parents about the films, I am sure they will remember. The films were made famous by the stop motion animation of Ray Harryhausen. While the special effects may seem dated by modern standards, they were considered revolutionary at the time. 

 

These traditional tales of, the brave and bold, Sinbad originate from the Middle East. Sinbad's tale is believed to have been written in either Oman or Persia (Modern day Iran). It was recorded in the book  'One Thousand and One Nights' sometimes referred to as 'Arabian Nights.' This book also featured the famous tales of 'Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves' and 'Aladdin and the Magic Lamp'

 

This collection of tales is often compared and contrasted with the the work of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, whom we studied last term ( The Brothers Grimm). 

 

Read through the material carefully and work your way through the activities.
