Grade 5

Personal and social skills

Module 3


Activity 1

To demonstrate a developing level of concentration

[lo 3.3]


E xercise:

Take note within a few seconds of as many details as possible of someone’s clothes, hair, shoes, colours, etc.

Remove the subject from view.

Write the particulars down after the observation.

Activity 2

To adopt and maintain a role

[lo 3.4]

The story in the forest

Stage One

  • use the school hall or the stage
  • imagine a forest in this space
  • place chairs (the trees) in the space
  • if you want a river flowing through the forest, mark on the floor where the river should be
  • walk through the forest to experience and be aware of the space and environment they are going to be working in
  • make sure they visualise the setting, colours, textures, sounds, smells, etc. of the forest

Stage Two

  • leave the ‘forest’;
  • think about a character you would like to be in the forest – you can even be an animal;
  • be creative;
  • have them explore the elements of characterisation :
  • Action : What am I doing?
  • Volition: Why am I doing it? (will-power)
  • Adjustment : How am I doing it?

- explore the external attributes to characterisation :

  • the body (is the character young, old, fat, cripple…?)
  • the voice (shrill, deep, seductive, old, childlike,…?)
  • the face (narrow eyes, nervous twitch, evil, good…?)
  • the attitude (self confident, nervous, insecure, in charge…?)
  • the props (glasses, tiara, walking stick, gun…?)
  • the costume (evening gown, tuxedo, rags, track suit…?)
  • the make up (beard, fantasy, aging…?)
  • return to, and move through the forest as the character you have created

Stage Three

  • divide into groups;
  • maintain the character that you originally created and devise a story using it and the characters of the other learners in the group;
  • create appropriate dialogue;
  • write down the dialogue;
  • plan and rehearse your story;
  • perform your stories before the rest of the class.


  • every action that takes place on stage must serve a purpose
  • make sure your dialogue is easy to say and easy to remember
  • make sure your story has a beginning, middle and an end
  • make sure your story has a climax
  • instead of using a lot of dialogue, try actions instead – you don’t have to say anything to make a point
  • use as much of the space available to you – movement on stage can be very exciting


The learner is able to: 1 2 3 4
Develop a level of self-confidence and the skills to focus and concentrate
Develops a sense of spatial awareness
Adopt and maintain a character during the duration of the play
Develop and use suitable dialogue, as well as suitable gestures and movements
Interpret the role with self-confidence
Create and develop a short text
Be aware of personal creative possibilities
Work as an individual in a group
Perform characteristics and dramatic interaction clearly


LO 3

PARTICIPATION AND COOPERATION The learner is able to display personal and social skills while participating in arts and culture activities as an individual and in a group.

We know this when the learner:


In regard to 3.1 – 3.7 below:

cooperates with other group members during arts activities;

hmm well what is the answer
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
kinnecy Reply
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

types of nano material
abeetha Reply
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
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
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
