Here is some of the amazing work 4LA have sent me this week! We have African masks, spelling tasks and various posters!
A huge well done to all of these pupils, I am super impressed by all of the extra work you are doing as well as Google Classroom.
Check out the wonderful pieces of work people have completed at home this week. One of our class members even got to see a Highland Cow!
Make a Solar Oven
Equipment: foil, cardboard box, 2 sticks, scissors, paper plate, black paper/card, marshmallows and/or chocolate buttons, clingfilm.
How to: cut the lid of the box so that it opens on a hinge like a pizza box; cover the inside of this lid with foil; place the black paper/card on the base of the box; place food on a paper plate and place inside the box; cover the opening above the food with clingfilm to keep the food clean; prop open the lid with the sticks and position the box so that the foil reflects light onto the food.
What is happening? The black paper/card absorbs the heat and the foil reflects the heat from the sun onto the food, making it melt.
Taking it further: children could explore what happens they use black card/paper as their plate. At what speed do different types of food melt?
How to: Challenge the children to use a piece of foil to create an insect and a spider. Ask them to explain what is different about them and what is the same: body parts, habitats, what they eat, how they move etc.
Taking it further: if class-based, children could classify, sort and compare their different minibeasts.
I have been overwhelmed with the amount of work I have received from you all this week! I love to see the extra tasks that you are completing at home.
Well done to everyone who completed work this week, I can’t wait to see what you all get up to next week.
