NEW BRAIN BUILDER (3rd July)

Upload to Seesaw today!

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.

Well done for earning lots of stars this week!
Who thinks they can achieve 50 stars a week? 10 stars a day - Monday to Friday. 
Top Doodlers will be updated on a Friday morning.

Maths

Hello to my maths group! 

Don't forget to do your daily activities:

- Complete a Daily 10 task.  This can be on an area of your choice, but I would strongly recommend number bonds to 100 (2) and multiplication (4, 5).

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?

Art
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. 

Fancy a challenge?

If you do, why not practise your word processing skills? Time yourself typing the sentence below. You can do this on a computer, tablet or phone. Once you’re happy with your time, show your parents and ask them to let me know. You need a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end. All words must be spelt and spaced correctly. It took me 7.12 seconds – but that was after a few tries! The best scores will be added to our leader board and the top 3 children who can prove their scores once we are back in school will get a reward from the prize box. Before you ask, yes, the big one - which has some new erasable pens in.
