Massive Expanding Soap



Watch Scientist Joe as he makes the Massive Expanding Soap Experiment here!

Further Experiments:

  • The soap still works as soap, so you can use it by breaking off pieces to wash your hands. The whole bowl of foam can be used to make a bubble bath, or you can create some Clean Clay with the soap, 1 cup of hot water, and a new roll of toilet paper.
  • Put the expanded soap in a container large enough to hold it all, then pour the hot water over it. Stir and squish the soap until most of the lumps are gone.
  • Unroll the toilet paper a few feet at a time, and add it to the soapy water. Squish and mix them as you add more paper. For thick toilet paper, you will only need half a roll. For thin paper, use the whole roll.
  • Squish and mix the Clean Clay, breaking up lumps, until it is the texture of clay. Then sculpt it and experiment however you want! After you’re finished, you can clean your hands just by washing them in the sink. You already have soap on your hands!

I can't believe that we are about to start the 4th week of home schooling, from our phone calls this week I think it's beginning to feel a lot less like a holiday and a lot more real for a lot of you. Every child is different, do what works for you, little and often and try to mix up what you are doing each day. There are options below for next week- use what works! 

 

Johnathan sent me a letter to school this week and I have sent a letter back in the post. If anyone else wants to do this then I am happy to write to you all during school closures- a great way to keep writing!  

 

The Oak Academy is an online school that has been set up to support children with lessons from home- some of you love this and some of you don't, so again it's here if you like it don't use it if not! 

Each day click on this link- https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/schedule  choose your year group and work through the days lessons. You will need a pen and paper and a screen to watch the lessons on.

Week 3

It was lovely to speak to so many of you on the phone last week. Here are some more ideas for this weeks home learning:- 

The Oak Academy is an online school that has been set up to support children with lessons from home- we would love you to try this and let me know at the end of the week how you have found it. 

I've added a photo of the year 1 and 2 plan for the week using the Oak academy resources 

Each day click on this link- https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/schedule  choose your year group and work through the days lessons. You will need a pen and paper and a screen to watch the lessons on. 

 

Alternatively There are updated home learning packs similar to the ones we sent out originally to print off and use- https://classroomsecrets.co.uk/free-home-learning-packs/?goal=0_9fbcd14815-71c3b42352-191292263&mc_cid=71c3b42352&mc_eid=92adba569b    

Or- Use bbc bitesize to access their daily videos= https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/group/p089nk5f    This can be watched through the red button on your TV or using BBC IPlayer. A 20 minute video each day with lots to keep you entertained and learning. 

 

Grammar- Complete the sheets attached below- correct the sentences and learn about commands, statements, questions and exclamations.

 

Music- Have you seen the Baked Potato NHS song? Matt Lucas who wrote the song is asking children to make their own versions of this song and to send the videos to him. Why don't you have a go at this silly song at home? We'd love to put your videos on the website! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYOkgCkxj9I

 

PHSE- Mrs Brown has sent a link to a time capsule that you can complete and bury at home- https://s3.letsembark.ca/long-creations/2020-COVID-19-Time-Capsule-EN-US.pdf

 

PE= Mrs  Holland has set you some PE challenges to try at home ( the challenges are attached below) There is also a football game to try online- https://plprimarystars.com/for-families/play-game   

 

Science-Mrs Gardner is setting a weekly science challenge that you can try at home- if you have and brothers or sisters then you can work together on it. This week is all about floating and sinking the powerpoint for this I've attached below. 

 

I will ring you again at the end of this week....keep working hard and be good!!!

School Closures Week 1 

 

Hello everyone! Half way through week one of home learning- I hope that you are all being well behaved for your parents and making sure you do at least a small amount of school work every day! The Easter holidays are still a holiday so enjoy yourselves and keep the reading  and writing up! I will be ringing you all after the Easter holidays to find out how you are getting on - be good and keep working hard! 

Parents- 

The Parents home learning page on the website has hundreds of resources on to help your child learn at home. We really don't want you to get stressed out about home learning these are difficult times and being stuck inside with your family for several weeks can be hard enough without arguing about school work. My suggestion- make a daily timetable- keep to short activities and keep it fun. I've put a suggested daily timetable below however do whatever works for you! I will re-post on here every week and if you are having any urgent problems then email school, or I will be ringing every home after the Easter holidays and we can chat then.

 

9am- Join Joe Wicks for his daily work out or Try out some of the PE activities on the website or use GoNoodle to get active. 

9.30 -Pobble writing -Look at the daily picture - write a story or information about the picture.  http://www.pobble365.com  

10 am- https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning- Join the maths party at 10 am each day watch the video and answer the questions. 

Snack and free choice time

11- Listen to David Walliams elevenses story for 20 mins on The World of David Walliams

11.30- 1:1 reading time with a parent - ask lots of questions or use an online text with questions such as practise sats papers or 

The Reading Realm - https://thereadingrealm.co.uk/ or twinkl which has reading comprehension packs. 

Lunch

1.-Go out if safe for your family and have a walk or jog or bike ride- taking all precautions to avoid others. 

1.30- Household chores/ cleaning/cooking/gardening /washing.2-Research and Topic= Choose an interesting topic and start a research project- i.,e. a country or animal or author or famous person, think about how to present your work- booklet, leaflet- powerpoint. Children all have googleclassroom accounts they can use the google s

lides application to create slideshows(will need support with this) - or just pen and paper is fine! 

3 - Arts and Crafts time- Miss Peddle has added some art activities onto the home learning page

 

Obviously you will want to change the things you do each day but having a structure to your day could help- people are advising to try and get dressed each day and keep active! 

For the children of key workers still in school we are following a similar timetable here. 

Keep safe and well, take care and I'll be in touch after the holidays. Miss King.
