Balanced and Unbalanced forces

Forces are constantly acting on us and all objects. When stationary these will be balanced or when we are speeding up they will be unbalanced. Use this link and work through the first 3 pages to revise your knowledge of this.

Draw or take photos of forces in action around your house and label the force arrows. Explain whether these are balanced or unbalanced forces and why.

If you are interested in video games this link shows you how they make games that follow the laws of forces.

Science
Chemical and Physical Reactions

All reactions in chemistry can be categorised as a physical change or a chemical change. Revise your knowledge of this using this link

There are some easy experiments you can try at home and work out whether they are physical or chemical changes. 

  1. Melting chocolate (If you add cornflakes to the melted chocolate does this change the reaction?) 

  2. Coke and Mentos 

  3. Slime - there are several versions here  that you can try an make at home - all edible

Using your knowledge justify why these are either physical or chemical reactions

History
Meanwhile, Elsewhere

Whilst King John had ruled in England, Genghis Khan created the Mongol Empire. I would like you to complete a quick research on Genghis Khan and try to answer the following questions:

  1. How did Genghis become the leader of the Mongol tribes?

  2. What does ‘Genghis Khan’ mean?

  3. Why have some historians called the Mongol Empire one of the most destructive and brutal empires in history?

  4. What areas did Genghis Khan conquer in the 12th century?

Challenge: Why did the Mongol Empire grow so quickly?

Stretch challenge: The Mongol Empire split into four smaller empires, the Yuan Dynasty, Chagatai Khanate, Ilkhanate and the Golden Horde. Why did the empire break apart after Genghis Khan’s death?

Friction

Friction occurs when surfaces rub against each other, sometimes friction is helpful for us to gain grip. However, when skiing or ice skating we want less friction. 

This science programme shows you friction experiments on a large scale.

From the video create a poster explaining why friction is important, how we can increase it and ways to reduce it. 

Here is a link to make the hovercraft seen in the video. (remember you can do this with cardboard if you don’t have an old CD.)

Drawing for Instruction

Last lesson you created an origami box, which had a drawer in it. 

We would like you to look at the film again and draw a set of instructions which describes how to make the outer box only. The instructions should contain as few words as possible. You should use simple line drawings and arrows, with very few words - perhaps ‘fold sharply’. 

Imagine your instructions are going to appear in a book rather than in the form of a film. Don’t worry about shading and just a few colours, it could be done in black and white.

Extension task: Do the instructions for the rest of the box.

Introducing Rhythms

Watch this video to introduce you to 3 different note lengths: Semibreve, Minim and Crotchet. 

On paper, draw each note neatly with its name and how many counts it lasts for.

Underneath this, I would like you to compose your own rhythm. It must last 16 counts in total, and the 3 note lengths can be used in any order.

 Why not try playing your rhythm on the instruments you made.

PH Scale

The pH scale is useful for us to identify substances as acid, alkali or neutral. Use this link to revise your knowledge of this. 

In school we would normally use Universal Indicator or Litmus paper however, you can make an indicator using red cabbage.  

Use the instructions to make your own indicator and test the pH of different solutions you can find at home.  

(IMPORTANT: Please ask an adult before you go through the cleaning cupboard - you only need a few drops of the solution)

Record your results in a table.
