Good Morning Unicorns!
Did you know?
Apples float because they are one-quarter air!
Remember Unicorns there is no Zoom call this morning. I have put details of your reflection below and I will catch up with you all at 12:00pm today for our afternoon Zoom call. If you have, any problems or questions then please email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible: email@example.com
We need to remember that during these difficult and uncertain times that God always loves us and God is always there to support us. When we are worried, we can pray to God and He will listen.
“You will make your prayer to him, and he will hear you.”
To finish your quiet reflection this morning – please watch the clip below. It is a prayer to help you find light in the darkest times.

LO: To multiply decimals by integers.
Firstly, an ‘integer’ is another word for a whole number. Now, begin by watching this video from White Rose – remember to stop/pause the video when you are asked a question: ‘Multiply decimals by integers’. https://vimeo.com/490690764
As always the White Rose sheet from the video comes with answers too for you to complete – it is saved as the bottom of the page in ‘Today’s Documents’.
If you need extra support, I have posted a help video by Corbett Maths at the very bottom of this page that may be useful to you.
LO: to write my own recount of a key scene from Macbeth.
Before you start you will need to watch: ‘Daggers for King Duncan’ – Episode 3 of Macbeth animation: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks2-macbeth-ep3/z4mkxyc
Look at the resource sheet for this next part – it is a version of the original Shakespeare script for this scene where Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are plotting to kill King Duncan (Saved in ‘Today’s Document’s’ below). Can you read it? What do you think?
Activity: Today can you re-tell the story of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth plotting to kill and planning King Duncan’s murder. You can write this as a play script – similar to the resource you have read. Or if you prefer you can create this as a comic strip – it is up to you.
If you would like to try writing the scene as a play script this video may help you. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zkgcwmn/articles/z6hhcqt
You could use some of the language from the original script – you may even want to use some Shakespearean insults if you completed that task in the first week of remote learning.
Join me at 12:00pm for our Zoom call before lunch. Today we shall be catching up to see how you have got on with today’s lessons so far. Hope you are all okay – looking forward to seeing you.
LO: To Understand that light appears to travel in straight lines.
How does light travel?
Here are some pictures of light sources. Can you draw them and draw a diagram for how you think lights travels from them?
You are going to have a go at one of the experiments shown in the clip to demonstrate how light travels.
All you will need:
- Card – you could try with paper.
- A ruler
- Hole punch – scissors to cut will do.
- A torch
- Plasticine/blue tack or something similar.
Using these resources, can you try to re-create the experiment from the video?
- For each piece of card, use a ruler to draw lines connecting opposite corners of the card.
- At the intersection of the two lines, use a hole puncher to punch a hole in the centre of the cards (you could use scissors for this.)
- For each card, use a small piece of plasticine and place the card into it to create a "stand" for the card.
- Place the cards so that they stand vertically and at an equal distance from each other. See Diagram below.
- Place the torch at one end of the row of cards and turn off the light in the room. Arrange the cards so that light can be seen through all the holes.
- Observe and record your observations. – Draw your model or take photographs to send to : firstname.lastname@example.org
Tip: Ask an adult to help with cutting holes if you are using household scissors etc – take care!
You could also follow this YouTube clip- where this young scientist shows a very similar way of recreating the experiment:
Hope you have all had a super day – See you tomorrow at 9:00am.
