Discuss any difficult vocabulary.

2. Look at Susan’s last sentence. Discuss what would happen when they take Lisa home.

Then ask the children to consider: Do they think Lisa will find her parents? What could have happened to them? Remind them that they would naturally want to find her.

Stress that their suggestions must be reasonable and realistic.

Their answers could be evaluated for LO 5, as well as LO 2.

If the answer is completely unrealistic, and doesn’t take any known factors into account, it would be rated 1.

If they take into account that Lisa has only been missing for two days and that her parents could have landed elsewhere and are now looking for her - that would be rated 3.

To be rated 5, they would have to have thought of radio contact and that a generalised search would already be in progress.

The children must listen to each other’s answers and comment on the likelihood of any of the solutions.

  • Work through the planning of the story with the class. Help the learners to develop a logical sequence of events. Let them read the rough copy to a small group. The group members must listen to see if the learner uses the right tense and person. Then they can copy the story neatly and illustrate.

Depending on your time, the stories may be read out aloud to the class or allow learners to swap stories and read each other’s silently.

  • Introduce the ‘th’ combination before doing the ‘th’ worksheet

Encourage the children to find out about early writing in different civilisations. Let them tell the class what they have found out or make a small poster about their findings. Some children could also copy out examples of hieroglyphics or cuneiform for display purposes.

A message in a bottle

Paul and Susan went to the beach. They wanted to find some shells. Susan was looking in the rock pools. She saw lots of little fish and crabs. “I’m sorry I forgot to bring my net,” she thought.

Paul was walking along the beach. He went into the water. The waves splashed over his toes. He saw the green seaweed. He wanted to pick it up.

“Yugh! It’s so slimy!” he said. Then he looked again. There was a bottle in the seaweed!

LO 3.2.1

“Susan!” he shouted. “Come and look here!”

Susan ran to him. “What is it?” she asked.

“Look at this.” Paul showed her the bottle.

“So what? It’s only a bottle. People are very bad. They litter everywhere.” Susan wanted to go back to her rock pool.

“No wait. Can’t you see? There is something in the bottle”, said Paul.

Sure enough, the bottle had a cork top and inside was a piece of paper.

“It’s a message in a bottle!” Susan was so excited. “Open it quickly!”

Paul picked the bottle up and struggled to get the cork out. His hands were shaking he was so excited. Suddenly the cork popped out. He shook the bottle upside down and the paper came out.

This is what it looked like:

“We’ve got to help!” said Paul.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?

not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
