Happy Friday, Y5!

It’s the last day of term and what a crazy year this has been!

Miss Wilson and I would just like to thank you all, both adults and children, for all your hard work – not just over this tricky lockdown period – but the entire year. It’s been a pleasure to work with each and every one of you.

Today is the final part to our Dragon’s Den task!

First up, your first task is to present your sales pitch to someone else at home or video it and send it to me. You’re presenting your product to the Dragons so really go for it! You’ve worked so hard!

R2s:

  • volume
  • expression
  • steady speed
  • confidence
  • really sell your product

The final part to your Dragon’s Den is to make a prototype – a small model to show what it would really look like.

You can make your prototype out of any materials: play doh, newspaper, card… anything at all!

As always, send a picture of your finished article!

Task 3

Reading

Sing along with this song. Read the words as you go.

https://youtu.be/-nRU5RIDWXU

So long, farewell (from the Sound of Music)

There’s a sad sort of clanging
From the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple, too
And up in the nursery

An absurd little bird
Is popping out to say coo-coo
(Coo-coo, coo-coo)

coo-coo Regretfully they tell us
coo-coo But firmly they compel us
coo-coo To say goodbye
To you

So long, farewell
Auf wiedersehen, goodnight
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell
auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu
To you and you and you
So long, farewell
Au revoir, auf Wiedersehen
I’d like to stay
And taste my first champagne
Yes?
No!

So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave
A sigh and say goodbye
Goodbye
I’m glad to go
I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float
I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone
To bed and so must I
So long, farewell
auf Wiedersehen, goodbye

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

Now, write a list of any words that are new to you. Can you find out what they mean?

Morning, everyone!

Today, we’re carrying on with your Dragon’s Den task.

The first part is market research. You need to have a discussion with someone else about your product design. Speak to someone face to face, call someone on the phone or chat over video call. You might ask the following questions or add your own.

  1. What do you think to the product’s look?
  2. What would you improve?
  3. What are the best features?
  4. Can any be improved?
  5. Do you think the price is reasonable?
  6. Would you buy this product?
  7. What are the overall strengths?
  8. What are overall areas to improve?

The more people you ask, the better your product will be.

The second part of today’s task is computing.

After taking on board feedback and making any necessary changes, you need to create a sales pitch to present to the Dragons tomorrow. You could do this on multiple posters, on PowerPoint or KeyNote. You might need to do some online research so make sure you’re making safe choices! You should present:

  • the best features
  • why your product is better than your rivals
  • who it’s aimed at
  • your market research results
  • what it’s made of and why
  • how much it would cost
  • why you decided to make this product

Your presentation should last 5-10 minutes so you could prepare some flash cards with your speech on it, too.

As always, we’d love to see your inventions and products! Send us an email and we might even want to buy one!

Happy Wednesday, Y6!

It’s nearly time to say goodbye to Moortown forever.

I was originally going to put a link for a farewell video I’ve made on the website tonight but I think I’ll save it so that we can watch it as a class together for the first time on Thursday. So the new “release date” will be this Thursday evening at 7pm instead. Thanks for understanding!

Today’s task is a little bit different – the first part of a three day series of Dragon’s Den!

There are several stages that you need to go through covering a wide range of subjects and skills.

The first stage is Design and Technology.

You need to design a product. It can be anything – hover boots, a chair, jewellery, headphones… whatever you like! There are lots of sheets online that can help you structure this design process if you need one. Think about the following questions:

  • What is your product for?
  • Does it solve a problem?
  • Who is it aimed at?
  • What are its features?
  • What is it made of?
  • What size is it?

Send in an email of your design.

Your task today is to practise the spelling of the following ten words using some of our spelling ideas here. You can use as many as you like.
The words are:
thorough
secretary
hindrance

You can take a picture of it, sent it to me and I can print it off for her. Or you can post it to school.
