Update: Thursday 26th March 

Hi Sapphire,

Hope you have all been enjoying the home learning I set for you. But here are some other things for topic you could do if you find you are zooming through the work and you need some more things to keep on doing some amazing learning.

Miss Lockyer.

 

History: 

Learn about one of the significant events of the Second World War, the ‘Great Escape’, made by allied soldiers from the prisoner of war camp, Stalag Luft III, including, how the heroic men dug and disposed of the earth from the tunnels and the impact of the event. Present their learning in either a story or as a newspaper. (See the great escape PDF).

The book we have been reading is called ‘Rapunzel’ by Bethan Woollvin. 

Here is a link to the book. No one is reading it but it does give the children chance to pause the video to read and look at all of the amazing illustrations on each page - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qst6Yw7w9EQ

 

Task one: After looking and reading the book on Youtube, try doing a story map so that you can remember everything that’s happened. . 

Task two: Near the end of the book a 'wanted' poster has been put up by the witch to try and find Rapunzel. Try making your own wanted poster.

Example: 

  

Science:

  • Try making some sugar cubes using water and sugar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ri952M-Hk5s (There are other videos on YouTube that can be used to show you how to make sugar cubes). First, experiment by stacking one sugar cube one on top of the other, until the tower falls. How many sugar cubes were you able to stack? What was the height of your tower? Using a ruler if possible, measure and record the height of your first tower. 

  • Second experiment: try to build a taller tower by stacking the cubes how you like. Maybe you need more cubes at the bottom of the tower to support the height?  How many sugar cubes were you able to stack this time? What was the height of your tower? Using a ruler if possible, measure and record the height of your second tower.

  • Ask your adult to take pictures of you making sugar cubes/Ice cubes and doing the experiment. Then you could explain how you made them and also what happened in your experiment.

  • If you don’t have sugar maybe you could try this experiment with ice cubes! Can you build a tower from ice cubes? Will it melt before you can manage it? 

  • Record your predictions and results in a table, including using the correct units of measure.

Design and experiment: 

  • Construct a bridge that is 30cm long, using marshmallows and dried spaghetti! (Straws if you don’t have spaghetti). Explore different ways of connecting and structuring. Use digital cameras to record making and using pennies as weights, test the amount of pennies the bridge can hold.  

  • Then do the same thing with the same amount of marshmallows and spaghetti but this time can you make the bridge 50 cm long? Does this change how much it can hold. 

  • If you ask your adult to take pictures of you making the bridges and doing the experiment. Then you could explain how you made them and also what happened in your experiment.

  • Record your predictions and results in a table.
