Inventions and Inventors
This week, we are taking a closer look at invention.
Read the information about Victorian invention and inventors.
Can you now take one of the important inventions from the Victoria period and give me more detail about it.
You will have to think of four subheadings to organise your writing.
You can have a go at drawing a picture of it.
Could you be the next great inventor?
Here is my fabulous new invention
The Bed maker PRO 3000 - MKIII
Although making the bed is not too bad a chore, the picking up of dirty and smelly clothes in the Wraith household is definitely one that gets left to me and I'm fed-up.
Are there any jobs that you don’t like doing around the house?
Are there any tasks that other people in your family don’t like doing?
Imagine that you could buy special machines to do the tasks that nobody likes doing.
I want you to invent a machine to do one of those tasks.
Draw a picture of your machine and label your picture to show what parts do what.
Write down why you’ve decided to invent the machine and tell me a little bit about how it works.
Words with the opposite meaning, these link back to our work last week to prefixes as prefixes are often used to make ANTONYMS
If you think back, you should remember what a synonym is ......... a word that means the same or similar.

My personal favourite: BUS STOP. The golden rule this week is don't forget the carry!
Watch my video demonstration to see how it is done. There are two sets of questions to have a go at. The first will get you back into bus stop and the second will offer you more of a challenge. It's all about the times tables ( sorry I know I say this A LOT)
Maths Arithmetic Test - week 5
This is your weekly arithmetic test.

State of Matter - reversible and irreversible change
All things have a state of matter, they are either; solid, liquid or gases. Some materials can change state (reversible) and some cannot change ( irreversible), this is done through either heating or cooling.
Here is some more information - click below:
Can you change the state of three things and your house and say how you did it?
runny egg ( liquid ) fried egg (solid)
Produce a scientific diagram like above to show how to made the three materials change ( you could take some photos or a video to show this too)
Art and DT Activity.
This week's art and DT task is based upon the work of William Morris.
We would like you to create your own wallpaper designed in his style. Pay close attention to the colours, patterns and shapes that he used in his work.
I have attached some information about William Morris and some examples of his patterns to help you but, be creative and invent some of your own designs that could be used to decorate your own walls.
You might want to use materials you find in your gardens or on your daily walk to create a "living" design.

Who was William Morris?
William Morris lived and worked during the Victorian era.
He was lucky to attend Oxford University and when he left he started to work as an architect however he soon realised that he enjoyed painting for more than being an architect. William became really interested in interior design and decoration when he moved into his new house and, with his wife, started their own fine craft work company. They started to make furniture, tableware, curtains and coverings and wallpaper. All of these items were made hand made.
Eventually his company focused upon wallpaper and his designs, inspired by the natural world are some of his best-known works of art.
He recorded all of these beautiful wallpaper illustrations in books which were eventually published for others to admire.
Here are some examples of his walllpaper designs. Look closely at the colourful, intricate designs based upon the natural world.
