Monday - Science - What is Electricity?
Work through today’s lesson presentation, which explains how electricity is generated. Watch the film clip carefully on slide 2 and on slide 4 use the Electricity Mind Map to write and draw about all the things you already know about electricity.
Continue through until you get to slide 16/17.
Task - Watch the BBC Clip again. Using the information you have learnt in this lesson, your task is to create some commentary (verbal explanations) for the clip, to explain where our electricity comes from. Use the differentiated Electricity Experts Activity Sheet to plan your commentary. (You may choose which sheet you would like to use) You could do some further investigation to support you by searching the internet for different ways of generating electricity. You may want to perform your commentary alongside the video clip to an audience.
Extension - Jot down the different ways that your lives would be different without electricity. See slide 18.
Tuesday - History
Vikings vs Anglo-Saxons
The Anglo-Saxons landed in Britain shortly after the Romans departed in 459 AD/CE.
The Vikings arrived almost 300 years later in 793 AD/CE, up until this point Britain was ruled by the Saxons.
Fights broke out between the Saxons and the Vikings until Danelaw was introduced. Which kept the south-west of England under Saxon rule, and the rest under Viking rule.
This was until 1066 when both were outed by William the Conquerer.
To this day, people still confuse the Vikings and Saxons as similar leaders, rulers, and peoples.
Can you research any similarities and more importantly, the differences, between the two peoples?
You can present this as a Venn diagram, a word document, on Purple Mash, drawings... in whichever way you would like.
Here are some links to help you:

Wednesday - PE - Yoga
Take another look at the Yoga Poses for Beginners PDF.
It’s the final week of homeschooling and some of you may be excited or/and nervous to return.
I thought it would be nice to return to yoga to help you focus your mind, for the challenges of the half term ahead.
You may want to share this time with your parents/carers and come together for a relaxing 20 or so minutes.
You may want to revisit the routine you created before half term, or challenge yourself to create a new one.
Hold each pose between 5 and 10 seconds and move to the next.
To make each routine flow into the next, instead of standing and sitting and standing again.
Build/plan your routine to work towards the floor and build back up to standing.
Again, begin and end in 'Mountain'.
Here’s some music from Youtube to listen to in the background.
Have a lovely day!

Again this afternoon if you can, spend some time together, away from a screen.
