Task 2: Maths

LO: To tell the time to am and pm

First click on the Time Game link and play for at least 15mins to get your brains working.

Then, click on the lesson link below and a follow the instructions on the Oak Academy lesson. Follow the video lesson and pause at anytime. Copy and complete any worksheets into your exercise books. Complete the quizzes and blog me how you got on. In this lesson you will learn to correctly use a.m. and p.m. to read and record time.


Task 3: Science

LO: To plan and carry out a scientific experiment

Science isn’t all about lab coats and goggles. Raid your kitchen cupboards, blow up balloons and make water do some very strange things, you have a choice from these 10 fun science experiments for kids you can do at home.

With handy messiness ratings and easy to follow guides, these projects don’t need fancy ingredients or equipment. Get ready to roll up your sleeves - which science experiment will you try?

Have a look through all the science experiments below first before you choose which one to have a go at, then write a short summary of what you did and what you found out (results). Please don't go out and buy things just choose the best one you can do at home. If you don't have any of the things you need for an experiment well you can't do that one. Enjoy! 

P.S If your parents/carers say you can't do an experiment you MUST listen to them and not do it, sorry! And if there is a another experiment you have found why not do that instead? 

2. Water Defying Gravity Experiments

Even though the cup of water is upside down the water stays in place, defying gravity! Amaze your family by making water defy gravity.

5. Making slime - how to make slime with only 3 ingredients.
