## To plan a narrative build-up

In this lesson we will discuss the purpose of a narrative build-up. We will then re-watch a clip from the film 'Whale Rider' and describe the characters' actions.

Please note that the death of a mother and brother are briefly mentioned in this lesson. If this is a sensitive topic for your child, please make sure they are adequately supervised. There are also stills from a film clip which feature some violence in the context of a Maori tradition.

This term our science topic is States of Matter

There are three states of matter: solid, liquid and gas.

Today we are learning about liquids:

A liquid has a fixed volume but changes in shape to fit the container. A liquid can be poured and keeps a level, horizontal surface.

Some liquids flow less easily and are slow to pour.

Science Vocabulary

Viscous: A viscous liquid flows less easily and is slow to pour.

Viscosity: The ‘thickness’ of a liquid is known as its viscosity. Viscous liquids like syrup and honey have a high viscosity. Liquids that flow easily like milk and water have a low viscosity.
