Thursday 14th Jan
Today we'd simply like you to read chapter three of Charlotte's Web. As you read, keep thinking about the events that have happened already. Keep making predictions as you read and visualize the events in your head as they happen.
(There's no writing today... just reading!)
Today is the final grammar session on Barn owls. We are looking at using questions in our writing.
Follow the slides to tell you more. The slides will also give you your task which you can write on paper or in your book.
This half term we will be focusing on 'Multiplication and Division'.
This morning we would like you to look at: Divide 2-digit by 1 digit (continued)
Watch the video first. You will need to keep pausing this to have a go at the tasks.
There are slides too (same as the video) if you need to look at this more slowly and carefully.
Then, complete the worksheet. Look at the questions on a screen and write your answers on paper. Remember, the later questions are normally problem solving and reasoning questions so give these your best shot. You may need a little bit of adult explanation for these.
Learning Intention: To understand how heating and cooling can change states.
Have you got any ice cubes in the freezer? If so, take one out and hold it in your hand. What is it made of? How did it get to be in this shape? What do we call it when this happens? What is happening to the cube as I hold it in my hand? What is causing this? What do we call it when this happens?
The PowerPoint below explains the processes of melting and freezing and how a material’s particles behave when they change state. After reading the slides, write an explanation in your book explaining the freezing and melting process using the term 'particles' in your answer.
If you have different types of chocolate in your cupboards and are able to do a practical experiment follow the instructions below. HOWEVER, don't worry if you can't do this. There is a video below showing children completing the experiment.
What happens to chocolate when placed over different temperatures?
Children given 3 sandwich boxes containing 3 different temperatures of water (cold water, hot tap, boiling). They then place a bun case into the water containing a square of chocolate. Children to observe and time how it takes for each square of chocolate to melt.
What happens to different types of chocolate when placed above boiling water?
Place 3 different types of chocolate (milk, dark and white) into bun cases, float on boiling water. Observe how long each type takes to melt.
What did you discover by completing this experiment? Write this up in your book remembering to explain why this happened.
