Tuesday 2nd February
MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING MORNING - FUN IN THE SNOW!
Look at that - it's SNOWED! We've made the decision as a school to give you a 'screen-free' morning this morning to enjoy the snow.
Simply log in to your MATHS teacher's live lesson at 9.15am for some snow-tastic ideas of things to do this morning. Then, have a go at some of the activities and send it back to your NORMAL class teacher's email address. You will then catch up with your normal class teacher at 1pm this afternoon for writing.
ACTIVITY 1 - ERUPT A SNOW VOLCANO!
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE A BAKING SODA VOLCANO ERUPTION
2 spoonfuls of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda )
1 spoonful washing up liquid ( dish soap )
a few drops of red food colouring
30 ml vinegar
Add everything except the vinegar to the container.
Carefully shape a volcano shape around the container using snow.
Stand back, get ready……add the vinegar and watch the eruption! If it doesn’t work so well, add a bit more washing up liquid and vinegar and give it a good stir.
I loved how easy this was to make and how great the red looked against the snow! It was also super easy to clean up!
Can you make a different coloured snow volcano?
ACTIVITY 2 - MAKE A SNOW SLUSHIE

ACTIVITY 3 - MAKE FROST IN A CAN
What you need:
- Aluminum cans (we used bean cans)
- Salt (salt science is our favorite because it is so cheap!)
- Play tray

Writing - live on Teams at 1pm
We'll start writing our story tomorrow as I'm aware some of you won't be able to access the live lessons today and if you're in school tomorrow, you would then be behind - so we'll leave the story for tomorrow when we're back to normal!
In the live lesson, I'll demonstrate some handwriting and spelling activities. I'd like you to follow along with me in the live lesson so you'll need a pen/pencil and some paper (lined if you can).
Then, have a look at the activities below and have a go at a couple of those to practice your handwriting. Then, flick to the Spelling page and practice your spellings for this week's test.
Below as well is an assembly for you to watch! Try and find some time this afternoon to watch that too!
