Hi everyone!

Hope you’re having fun learning about mummification, here are your tasks for today.

English: Today I would like you to start writing out your instructions for how to mummify a body. Remember to number your instructions and keep them in the correct order. Use imperative (bossy) verbs, times connectives and make sure your instructions are clear and easy to understand. Also try to include prepositions.


You should explain your instructions to someone in your house first and see if they are able to understand them.
Look back at the instructions from Monday to help and the list of I’m operative verbs and time connectives you made in your home learning book.


Maths: Ask someone to give you a test on your 8 times table. Practise any that you get incorrect.
Can you complete these times table wheels for your 8 times table in your home learning book? Click on them to see them full size.

Play on Maths shed or any of the times table games.


Science: Can you go on a rock hunt in your garden? Look around and find where different rocks is being used near your home. Make a list of where the rock is being used and what for. Can you explain why rock is being used there? Can you use scientific vocabulary permeable, impermeable, erosion (wears away) to explain.

Music: Watch the videos below and. Think about or discuss these questions with someone at home.


  1. The video talked about Duration being how long a note lasts. Many everyday things have durations as well: your favourite TV programme has a duration (maybe 30 minutes?), and the time it takes to say your name (maybe 1 second?). What other durations can you think of?
  2. When you hear a stream of notes that all have the same duration, you hear it as a Pulse, like your heartbeat, or the beat of your favourite song. What other everyday things can you think of that have a steady pulse?
  3. You learned that Tempo is the speed of the pulse in a song. It can have a fast, medium, or slow tempo. Think of your favourite song: do you think it’s fast, medium, or slow? What happens if you try to imagine the song at a different tempo? Speed up and slow down the song in your mind, then try to sing it at that tempo for fun!
  4. In the second video, you learn about the famous German composer Ludwig van Beethoven. The music that you see performed at the end of the video from Beethoven’s famous “Symphony number 5”. Listen to the whole thing (it’s about four minutes). How does the music make you feel? Are there different moods and sounds?
  5. The group of musicians playing this piece is called an “orchestra”. How many different instruments can you spot in the orchestra? You may have noticed the man standing at the front, waving his arms round. He’s called the “conductor”. What do you think his role is in the orchestra?


Have a great day!
