Some parents were asking for Maths resources, here are two:
This one is good for creating worksheets:
This one is good for fun games that help with maths skills:
Snow day! Hope you all enjoy it, here are some ideas for some snowy science to try out, whatever you do - bring in photos or something to show us on Monday :)
Snow bubbles - warm or heat your bubble mixture and then see what happens when it lands on the snow!
Snow candy - to be done with an adult! Mix molasses and brown sugar and heat to a high temperature (118°c if you have a thermometer to hand) then pour onto the snow outside or snow in a pan, see what happens :)
Build an igloo out of snow bricks.
Think about how to make your snowman last and see who can make one that lasts longest!
Catch a snowflake and get photographic evidence, try to compare a few.
My favourite - make some coloured ice cubes with food colouring and make a statue or scene outside with them.
Or come up with your own snowy activity - practise your drawing or photography skills or make a snow creature to live in your garden.
Have fun :)
Welcome back :)
Please come along to one of the Meet the Teacher sessions on Thursday - especially useful for new parents but equally a good refresher for the Year 6 parents! I will go tell you all about life in Hornbeam and address any questions you may have!
I will endeavour to update the class page as often as possible so that you get a chance to see the learning your children are engaged in!
