Maths Focus

 

 

  • Look at the images below: Draw your own house, boat and person by drawing shapes only.
    • Now: Can you draw a robot by drawing shapes?
    • If you like, paint or colour your shapes in the end. Count how many different colours you have used. Count how many yellow triangles you have. Count how many red squares you have. Compare the size of your shapes.

       

 

  • Play shape hunt at home or school. Look at the 3d shapes below.
    • Can you remember their names?
    • Look around in the classroom and try to find objects that have these shapes.
    • Record your answers on the sheet using tally marks (III)
    • Compare the answers with your classmates. Who found most of the cubes?
    • Who found most of the cuboids? Who found most of the spheres?
    • Who found most of the cylinders?
    • Who found most of the shapes altogether?

If you are at home, move around in different rooms and find objects with these shapes. You could play with a parent, sibling or carer and compare your answers with them.

 

  • Design an ice cream cone using line and colour patterns.
    • Watch the video and listen to instructions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InLkKxyxdrU
    • Now: Can you design the ice cream cone using the same line and colour patterns?
    • When you finish, try to design another ice cream cone using your own line and colour patterns.

 

  • Make your own emoji face!
    • Also downloadable on Twinkl

 

 

 

Science Focus

 

Music Bottles

Task: Create a water xylophone and explore the science of sound.

●Explore the sounds- Do they sound different?

●Can you hear a high and low pitch?

●Does the amount of water change the sound ?

 

What you will need:

-5 identical bottles (or jars or glass cups)

-Water

-Spoon

-Food colouring (optional)

 

Website: https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/science/sounds-great--bottled-music/

https://www.adabofgluewilldo.com/water-glass-xylophone/

 

What's happening:

Changing the amounts of air and water in the bottles lets you change the pitch—how high or low the sound is. When you blow across the tops of the bottles, you're making the air inside vibrate. In bottles with more air, vibrations are slower, so the pitch is lower.

Crystal Candy Rock

Task: Create candy rock crystals and watch them grow!

-Observe what happens over time

- Can you think of why this happens? (evaporation? precipitation, saturation?)

Equipment:

  • Sugar, water, skewers, jar, clothespins

Website

https://www.growingajeweledrose.com/2015/02/rock-candy-experiment.html

https://sciencebob.com/make-your-own-rock-candy

 

What's happening: What makes the crystals grow?

You have a supersaturated solution that is unstable (in this case, sugar) more than can stay in a liquid form—so the sugar will come out of solution, forming what's called a precipitate.

Water evaporates over time and the solution becomes more saturated and sugar molecules will collect on the seed crystals on the string. The rock candy crystals grow molecule by molecule. Your finished rock candy will be made up of about a quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) molecules attached to the string.
