Make sure you have signed the register and said hello! You can use the register to ask any questions and we will answer them on here the next day.
Remember, all work should be completed in your Home Learning Journal. Please write the long date and remember your perfect presentation.

Read one fiction book. Then read a non-fiction book. What are the differences between these two types of books?
Answer the following questions in your Home Learning Journal.
Science - DO try this at home!
This week we are going to be trying out some fun science activities. Each of these will have a short demonstration video and step-by-step instructions. If you like, you can send it a photo or video of you doing the activity and we will put it on the page here.
A rubber band. If you have different shapes and sizes, even better!
In this activity you’ll be listening to sounds by putting your finger in your ear. Wash your hands before doing this and remember never to force your finger (or any other object) into your ear.
A sound is made when something vibrates. Take your rubber band, stretch it out and give it a twang. You can even see these vibrations! The vibrating band makes the air nearby vibrate, and the vibrations spread out in all directions. If your ear is nearby, you will hear the sound as the vibrations make your eardrum and the bones in your ear vibrate as well.
In our rubber band bass guitar, the vibrations travel through your finger to your ear. Sounds travel better through solids like your finger than through gases like the air. This is because the molecules in a solid are so much closer together than in a gas so it is easier for the vibrations to be passed along. As soon as you take your finger out of your ear, there is a gap of air so the sound gets quieter.
You can change the pitch to create your basslines as you stretch and release the band. The more you stretch the band, the more tension it is under and the faster it vibrates up and down. The number of vibrations every second is called the frequency and this tells you exactly how high or low the note is. A guitarist does the same thing when tuning their guitar by turning the fiddly things on the neck of the guitar to stretch or relax the string.
Investigate together and discover how the sound changes when you use:
The study of sound itself is called acoustics. This is also the name for non-electronic music – so your rubber band bass experiment is both!
