Summer 1 Half Term!
April - May 2020
Make your own RAINBOW!
Hey Skylarks! It looks like you had a lot of fun with the last experiment!
This weeks experiment is all about making rainbows! It seems to be a popular theme at the moment to spread positivity and happiness so why not create you own one using colour and water! :)
There are a few different ways of carrying out this experiment so I have attached some videos and images below and you can decide which one you would like to do. :)
Make sure to take pictures of your experiment and email them in for me to see! :)
Once you have completed your experiment you can then record what you have discovered! Here are some ideas below of how you could present this:
- A scientific report
- A poster
- A write up of results
- A video of you telling the viewer what you have discovered
- Labelling your pictures
It is totally up to you how you could lay it out!
Keep smiling! :)
Make your own rain cloud in a jar!
I found this experiment and I just knew you Skylarks would love it! :) You can make your own rain cloud in a jar! It can be as colourful as you like and you only need 3 ingredients! :)
Take a look at the video below which will tell you how to do it!
Remember to email in your pictures! I would love to see! :)
Make your own lava lamp!
I have found another fun and funky new Science experiment for you to try out! This time you get to make your own lava lamp! How cool is that?!?
You don't need many ingredients and the video below shows you step by step of how to make your own! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
Don't forget to take pictures and keep smiling! :)
Bones in the body!
One of the most important things for people in the Stone Age was their strength in their bones and muscles! This is because they had to do a lot of jobs with their hands which required a lot of strength and muscle.
For today's task I would like you to watch the video below and label the bones in your body. I have added examples below of how you could do this... you could use post it notes, draw a diagram, make it creative or draw round your silhouette? :)
Have fun and keep smiling! :)
This weeks activity is all about our muscles!!! :) Your first task is to watch the video below to fill your brain with new fun and exciting facts all about our muscles!
Once you have watched the video I would like you to create a mind map of all the new facts you have learnt whilst watching! The next step is to use this mind map to explain to another family member what you have learnt about muscles! You might even like to video your presentation and email it to me. I would love to see! :)
I can see a rainbow...
Since this week is Mental Health Awareness and the theme is KINDNESS I thought we would return to our rainbow theme! :)
Below are 2 experiments about making your very own rainbows in fun and scientific ways! :) Pick one, or BOTH and have fun! :) I can't wait to see the results! :)
Summer 2 Half Term!
June - July 2020
Parts of a plant!
Hey SENSATIONAL Skylarks! I hope you're excited to learn all about our new topic of PLANTS! :)
Your first activity is to find out what each part of a plant if called and what their FUNCTION or JOB is! I would like you first watch the 2 videos below, they are filled with fantastic facts that will fill your brain with knowledge! :)
Once you have watched both videos I would like you to draw and label your own flower... maybe you could even use a flower from your garden or one you have found out on a walk? :)
After you have labelled the different parts I would also like you to add what the job for each part is... what makes that part so important? :)
Don't forget to show me what you produce! :)
What do plants need to grow?
Now we know all the different parts of a plant it is now time to learn about what plants need to grow! :)
Plants need several different things to make sure they can grow into beautiful flowers and super vegetables! If just one item is missing they can not grow!
I would like you to watch the video below which will help you learn about these important elements. Once you have watched it I would like you to create a poster explaining how to grow your very own beautiful plant! I have added some example below to help you with ideas for your design!
Keep smiling! :)
This week is a fun experiment... MAKING EGG HEAD PLANTERS! :)
There is a simple video below showing how to make your own. You can be as creative as you like and you may even want to create several egg heads, each with a different design! :)
You can use either cress or grass seeds and as they grow you can design your egg head hair style just like the examples below! Maybe you want to keep a daily diary or a daily picture to see what happens each day! :)
Have fun! :)
