Literacy

This week we are going to be learning about and writing a set of instructions. Log onto the website below and complete lesson 1, where you will be reading about Morrison shelters. They were used in WW2 (one of your topics in Y6!). You will be building up to writing instructions on how to catch a dragon! You could use the dragon you created in our very last literacy topic!

Topic - Science

Create your own density jar.

Pour water into a glass or jar until it’s about half full. Fill to almost the top with vegetable oil. If you’re using a jar with a lid you could try giving it a shake and leave to settle. The oil and water will separate again after a few minutes.

 

Draw yourself a table (see below) and choose a variety of items that you think might sink or float (e.g toys, lego piece, coin etc.) . List the items down one side of the table and then make your prediction.

Item

Prediction – Sink/Float

Findings – Sink/float/sink half way

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Test the small items to see if they float on the top or sink, or sink only half way down the jar. Record your finding in the table. 

 

Things to talk about with an adult or record your ideas:

What happens when you pour the oil on top of the water? Do they mix? What happens to different objects when you put them into the jar? Do they sink to the bottom or float on top of the oil? Can you find anything that will sink in the oil but float on the water?

 

Challenge: Try making a new jar, starting with a layer of salty water (you could add food colouring) then carefully pour fresh water on top and then the oil.

Activities

 

This week you will be thinking about why it is important to belong to a team or group. What teams or groups do you belong to? These might be inside or outside of school. How does it make you feel? What does being a good sport look like? What skills and qualities do you need to be a good team player? Have a look at the top tips sheet below. 

 

Have a watch of the following video and then complete the sheet below or create a poster answering the questions above. 

Make your own Guess Who game

 

Create your sets of characters on pieces of card or paper. Customising each character is easy –  you could use photos of drawings of your favourite super heroes, cartoons, sports teams or even your family and pets. Once you have created your characters, ask each other yes/no questions and try to be the first player to guess your partners identity.
