ENGLISH - what do you think of the play 'THE TEMPEST' so far? 

enlightenedCome up with 3 words to describe the play. 

As we did yesterday, lets gather more understanding of 'THE GLOBE' and imagine the play being performed there to all the audience. 

Listen to my description of The Globe  ...

The Globe

TASK - read the next pages (below) of the play THE TEMPEST 

1. Looking at page 19 - choose 4 words/phrases that clearly describe Ariel the spirit. 

2. Page 20 gives a lots of detail about Prospero's past and people involved. Write out a linking web of which characters are linked to who. 

3. On page 22-23 we get an idea of why Prospero is on the island - write a sentence explaining why he is there. 

4. Prospero says 'I do not seek revenge, only justice'  - look up the word justice. What does it mean? What does Prospero mean by seeking justice? 

5. What does the spirit Ariel wish for? Write a thought bubble for Ariel....


SCIENCE - Experimenting with Sound Waves

It might be hard to imagine that sound waves can travel through solid objects as well as through the air. This simple but exciting sound waves science activity will demonstrate for you how sound can and does indeed travel through solid objects!

Supplies Needed: 

  • Metal kitchen spoon- a large metal measuring spoon works great! 
  • At least 30 inches of  string

What to Do: 

1. Stretch out the string and tie the handle of the spoon in the middle of the string.

2. Take one end of the string and tie around your pointer finger. Do the same using the other end, but tie this string around the pointer finger of your  opposite hand. 

3.  Put your fingers, with the string wrapped around each, into your ears. 

4.  lean over so the spoon dangles and  swing the spoon so it hits a nearby door or wall. 

5. Hit the door or wall again, but this time with more force. What do you hear? 

You should hear a bell-like sound travel up the string from the spoon and into their ears. Discuss with your parent how the sound waves created from the spoon hitting the door moves through the string until you are able to hear it! 

RESULTS - record in sentences how the sound traveled to your ears. Explain using 3 sentences:-

  • What you noticed happened
  • If you tried it in different ways
  • What you thought worked well

Conclusion  (Why you think it happened like it did)

Write a sentence explaining your thoughts on why you think the results came out like they did. 

STORY TIME - Danny tells us about school...
