Hi everyone, hope you are all managing to enjoy the sunshine either on your daily exercise or out in your gardens. It's lovey to see signs of spring beginning to appear, and I have included a short writing task linked to this on the attached sheet. Also I have added two photos and included some questions to help you write a short story about them.
Tuesday 31st March Kitchen STEM
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and maths and is all about using your skills and knowledge to solve problems and answer questions. Today's question is ....
What is the tallest tower you can build using cups?
Ask your grown up to find you some plastic and paper cups - any size or design.
How tall is your tallest tower ? Unsupported - that means you can't hold it or prop it up with anything!
Can you make a pyramid?
How can you measure your tower?
And can you use your cups to make a bowling game? How can you score your bowling game?
Record your findings in your home books or get your grown up to post a picture on the parent's page on Facebook or email email@example.com and I'll try and post them on here!
Can you make a bridge?
Mr Topham's Superhero Training!
Mr Sonny Topham, our PE expert at school, has set up a Superhero Training section on his personal coaching page. It is for all children to access during this difficult period we are facing. So far, there have been three episodes, and the opportunity for children to share their superhero personas drawings.
We are sure the children will have told you about Mr Topham (he is quite a popular character!) and will relish the opportunity to join him on this new and exciting quest. Please find attached some images from his page, and his link.
We hope you can all enjoy this as a family
Kitchen STEM challenge - Tuesday 24th March
This weeks STEM challenge uses cardboard tubes, scissors and sticky tape - can you build a playground?
Tubes can be cut and joined using slits or sticky tape.
How many different ways of moving can you make?
Can you put play people on your playground?
Get a grown up to post a picture of your playground on the parent's page on Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post them on here.
Science - Wednesday 25th March
This term we have been finding out about animals! Go into your garden and see what animals you can find in your habitat. Record in your book as a simple table (look at the picture for idea) all the animals you can find. You could also make a pictogram or bar graph of how many of each animal you find.
Don't forget the title and date!
As a parent during this strange time, I am very aware of the pressures of feeling we need to keep our children occupied from the moment they wake until they close their eyes! Just to say, it really isn't possible without exhausting yourself in every which way. The teachers at Burnham are not expecting you to continue the teaching where we stopped abruptly.
I am hoping the ideas I have given you on the attachment will give you some food for thought. Please have fun with your children; these are worrying times for us all so let's enjoy the extra time we have with our precious families.
I'll be in touch this time next week with some more ideas. Take care for now x
