Hornbeam

Painting with watercolours outside

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 :)

thank you to those who took the time to come for the 'meet the teacher' session. For those that didn't make it - this powerpoint contains most of the information we discussed.

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!
