P6/7 Rhythm of Life – Homework Task

Hello P6/7’s as promised I have attached the two tracks for you, the first one has the melody to help you learn the tune and the second is the one that will be played on the day. We’ll be having another practise in class on Thursday so I look forward to hearing how you are progressing. Good Luck!

The Rhythm of Life

When I started down the street last Sunday

Feeling mighty low and kinda mean

Suddenly a voice said ‘Go fourth neighbour,

Spread the picture on a wider screen’

Go, go, go! Go, go, go!

Tell them everything you know!

 

For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,

Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet.

Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,

And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat x3

 

Go and spread the gospel in Milwaukee,

Take a walkie talkie to Rocky Ridge!

(All the way to Canton then to Scranton

Even tell it under the Manhattan Bridge)

 

You will make a new sensation,

Have a growing congregation,

Build a glowing operation here below!

Like a pied piper blowing,

Lead and keep the music flowing,

Keep the rhythm go, go, going,

Go, go go! x3

 

Flip your wings and fly up high!

Flip your wings and fly up high!

Flip your wings and fly up high!

Fly, fly, fly up high!

 

You can do it if you try!

You can do it if you try!

You can do it if you try!

Try, try, try to fly

 

To feel the rhythm of life!

To feel the powerful beat!

To feel the tingle in your fingers!

To feel the tingle in your feet!

 

[For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,

Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet.

Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,

And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat] x2

 

To feel the rhythm of life!

To feel the powerful beat!

To feel the tingle in your fingers!

To feel the tingle in your…life!

 

Neighbour you’ve got the rhythm of life,

Of life, of life, of life,

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!   Life!

World Book Day

Today was World Book Day and the P6/7’s rose to the ‘dress up as a book character challenge!’

Today we had the chance to have a look at our upgraded library which was kindly re-organised by Mrs Wood with some help from Mrs Smith. Thank you to you both for all your hard work!! There are some fantastic new books which we can’t wait to read

The class told me that they are especially happy to see Diary of a Wimpy Vampire and the Roman Mysteries books that are now in stock. Thank you Mr Moody!

P6/7 Brunel Project – Suspension Bridges

This week for our Isambard Kingdom Brunel Project we looked at suspension bridges and how the Clifton Suspension Bridge was designed. We compared this to the Forth Road Bridge and noticed similarities. We conducted an investigation into how the forces are distributed on these types of bridges and what makes them so strong.

Clifton Suspension Bridge

First each group made 2 cylinders out of card. Our cylinders could be bent and squished sideways but we found that when compressed at either end they were reasonably strong structures. We then taped a piece of string at either end to each cylinder. These bridges were incredibly weak and we couldn’t even get them to hold the cardboard sleeves we made to hold the weights in. UNSUCCESSFUL!!!

We then took a longer piece of string which went over the tops of the cylinders and stuck it to the table either side like you see in the photos below.  Some of these structures went from not even being able to hold the weight of a small piece of card to holding over 1KG! SUCCESSFUL!!!

This is because the force of the weights pulling down is transferred to the cylinder towers which we found at the beginning to be strong when compressed from the ends. Its in this way that suspension bridges can cover large distances yet still stay strong! Clever!
