How is your science coming along? At the beginning of our Home Learning journey we shared some experiments with eggs and books and we thought we’d share some more home science experiments. In this series of science tricks you will be learning about surface tension. Remember that you should only do them with adult permission and do not do the last one (with the hot pan) unless there is an adult there with you.
Each week we will give you a task that must be completed, this is your Top Terrific Task.
Using Wednesday’s History activity, send me pictures of a website plan or leaflet which answers the question, ‘What were seaside holidays like in Victorian times?’ You can present this in any way- I look forward to seeing it!
Click here to email me your work. I will send you a message back and if I haven’t heard from you by Friday I will get in touch to see if you need any extra help.
You have lots of work on your worksheet for maths this week, including work on multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000 but before you dive straight in, watch the video below to give you a handy reminder on why using (and understanding) place value is so important.
This week in English you will be putting yourself in the mind of the great explorers and reading lots of information about life in polar, arctic, antarctic and extreme places. Over the week you will read about the lives of many great explorers both past and present and at the end of the week you will be writing a Blog as if you were Sir Edmund Hillary. Do make sure you do all the activities as these will help you get in the mindset of an explorer and don’t forget to watch the video below. It shows you a speeded up version of what a trip up Everest would feel like. Try pressing pause and looking at the photographs and reading the captions.
In history this week we're thinking about
All this week in history we will be thinking about the Victorians, about their use of the trains and their leisure time. Your Top Terrific Task is also linked to this. On Monday we use the photo below to further our knowledge.
What do you think the picture tells us about train travel in Victorian times? Try to use all your senses – if you were there, what do you think you could hear, smell, taste, see and touch? Do you think it was a safe environment? Look at the adverts on the wall behind – what do you think they are advertising? In what ways are they the same as modern adverts and also how do they differ?
