Here are your activites for today – Tuesday 5th January 2021.
Phonics: Logon to Phonic hero https://phonicshero.com/ and complete the next activity.
Watch this video and recap the sounds ee/ea/e/e-e.
Guided Reading: Logon to Purple Mash. Read Chapter Two of ‘Anna’s Sports Day’ and complete the quiz.
English: Just in case you haven’t guessed the text, we will be exploring ‘Traction Man is Here’ by Mini Grey this term. Please see the attached PDF for your work. Today you will be listening to the first page of the story – you can access the story here.
Maths: Today we are making equal groups. Watch this video which will take you though some examples and then complete the worksheet. You can write out your answers you do not need to print out your sheet. Watch this video to help you.
Topic - Science: Watch this clip of animals that bounce, hop, roll, jump and leap.
Think about what you have seen, ‘Can you describe how the animal moves? Can you move like a frog? A kangaroo? A flea? A horse?’ Recreate the animal movements and feel which muscles they use.
Research some amazing bouncing and jumping animals using books and the web. Write down some interesting facts for each animal. For example, red kangaroos are the fastest jumpers (up to 56 km/hr) and fleas are incredible leapers. They can jump 220 times their own body length and 150 times their own body height.
Can you group the animals you have researched based on how they move?
Topic – Science - Blow bubbles. Watch, chase, catch and pop them as they travel in the wind. Experiment making super bouncy bubbles. Make the bubble solution using bottled water and a tablespoon of washing up liquid. You can go here to find out more.
Blow the bubbles using bubble wands. You can use just about anything to make a bubble wand but start with these ideas and experiment later.
Punch a hole in the bottom to blow through.
Dip the large open end into the solution and blow.
Plastic soft drink bottles:
Cut the bottom off the bottle and dip.
Use the lid end of the bottle to blow you bubbles.
You can create just about any shape you like form a pipe cleaner, just make sure you keep a small section as a handle. Try with circles, stars or even triangles.
This already has a natural shape for a bubble wand. Using the large end to dip and the small end to blow, this is a sure winner!
These should be small, but fast flowing bubbles. Why not bunch some together and see how many you can get. Dip and try!
Catch the bubbles on gloved hands and watch them bounce. Record what happens with pictures, writing, photographs or video.
- Think about what the bubbles do. Usually, soap bubbles burst when their thin surface comes into contact with something dry or oily. However, wearing a glove will protect them from the natural oils on the skin and they will bounce instead of pop. By leaving the mixture overnight before you blow your bubbles, the bonds in the bubble solution will strengthen.
