English

Practise your spellings for this week.

 

You have probably had a go at a few crosswords in your life. Here is an example of what a crossword looks like:

 

 

 

Imagine you meet a friend who tells you that they've never done a crossword and don't know how they work.

Your task today is to write a set of instructions explaining what to do.

Remember to include a list of what is needed and organise your instructions into numbered steps so they are easier to follow. This might sound easy, but you will need to explain very carefully, so you must be precise with your words. Also, you will need to explain what to do if your friend gets stuck on some of the clues.

Science - Fingerprint Investigation

Today you are going to take your own fingerprints - not because I think you're a criminal, but because it will be interesting to see what type of fingerprints you have.

 

Most fingerprints fall into one of 3 patterns
The three main types of fingerprint

Watch the short video below to learn the easy way to take your own fingerprints.

What you will need:

  • A soft pencil 
  • Sellotape
  • Scissors
  • Paper

Keep a record of the type of print on each finger of each hand. Are your fingers mostly arches or mostly loops or whorls? Perhaps they're a bit of a mixture.

I have no arches, mine are all whorls and loops and the same finger on each hand has the same type of pattern.
