Art - Monday 6th July

Last week you designed your model flower from things that you were able to find around your house. This week, using your design, we would like you to create your model. Remember that you just have to build your model this week. We will add colour and decorate it next week! Have fun and don’t forget to upload your photographs to Seesaw. 

Outstanding Artwork - Pop Art
 
Thank you to those of you that have sent in your amazing artwork. We have all been so impressed with what you have created at home. If you haven't finished your artwork yet, it's not too late! You can upload it to Seesaw at anytime and we will update the website as soon as we have it!
 
Take a look at the amazing pieces of art below.
Science - Tuesday 7th July
 
Floating Eggs 

What happens when you put an egg in a glass of regular water? 
This is a cool way to learn about density. 

Equipment: 

  • One egg 

  • Water 

  • Salt (1 – 2 cups) 

  • A tall drinking glass 

  • A spoon 

Instructions: 

1. Pour water into the glass until it is about half full. 
2. Place an egg in the glass of water and see if it sinks or floats (it should sink). 
3. Stir in lots of salt. Start with 1 tablespoon and stir it until the salt dissolves. Keep adding more salt until the egg floats. 
4. Next, carefully pour more fresh water until the glass is nearly full (be careful to not disturb or mix the salty water with the plain water). If you’re very careful, you can get the egg to float between the fresh and saltwater! 

How It Works: 

The egg is denser than the fresh water (more molecules per square inch), this causes it to sink.  When you start dissolving salt in the water, this is increasing the density (adding more molecules per square inch). Eventually the water becomes denser than the egg causing the egg to float.  When you carefully add fresh water again, this fresh water is less dense than the salt water so it floats right on top! 

Are there other liquids you can add to make the egg sink or float? 
What else can you dissolve in the water to make the egg float? 

Don’t forget to show us your videos by uploading them to Seesaw!

Thursday 2nd July
 
This week we're leaving Brazil and coming back much closer to home - to the amazing Kew Gardens. We're sad not to have been able to go there this year, but we're doing the next bext thing - finding out more about it, and looking at some of the wonderful plants and buildings that are there. You've started to do this in English lessons this week, so now we're going to have a (virtual) trip to the Palm House, to find out about it and some of the plants that are housed there.
 
First, watch the short video that introduces the Palm House. Then read through the information in the Powerpoint that is attached below. If you don't have PowerPoint in the device that you are using, open the PDF file instead - it contains the same information.
 
Your task is explained at the end of the PowerPoint (or PDF). Enjoy!
 
To give you an idea for something that you could find out about as part of your task, read the information on the website here to find out about rubbers (which are very useful when we need to change soemthing that we've written - as we all know!).

Here are some super posters that were created over the past couple of weeks, about Rio de Janeiro. They're great! Well done to the children who made them.
PE - Everyday
 
Go to Joe Wicks' YouTube channel here to join in his daily workout (at 9am).
Watch this video - it's easy to watch and it will help you to learn, or revise, quite a lot of words in French.
 
If you haven't already done, so, remember that you could download the app 'Duolingo'? You can use it to help you learn lots of different languages. It's fun and engaging - you just need to do use it a little bit each day and it will really help you to learn more words and phrases in French. Why not give it a go?!

NEW BRAIN BUILDER (set on Wed 17th June)

A portal is an entrance to another space or area. In stories, portals can often appear as magical entrances that lead characters into mystical, fantastic places. In our story, ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’, the wardrobe is the portal, and it leads to Narnia.

If you could invent your own portal that you would be able to go through yourself, what would it look like? Where would it lead to, and what might you do there? Be as creative as you like, and show your ideas in whatever form you like. You could describe it, paint it, draw, annotate, make a model – or any combination of these!

Upload your work to Seesaw when you have finished it – we’re really looking forward to seeing your ideas!

Due in Friday 3rd July.

 
Look at some of the previous Brain Builder work which was been submitted. It's great to see your fantastic efforts.
Friday 3rd July- Food miles!
 

This week’s challenge is to investigate how far your food travels before it gets to your plate. Watch the Powerpoint that's attached below (or the equivalent PDF). Then complete the activity that's explained at the end, to investigate how far your favourite food travels. It's a very important and topical issue - so there's also a question at the end which you could start to consider.

 

Look at the video below showing the children in school testing their paper aeroplanes, from last week's challenge activity. It was a windy day!
