Good morning Skye class

Good morning Skye class,

I hope you are all well and having good time at home! ๐Ÿ™‚

You all love watching and listening to Makaton songs. I am pretty sure that “Makaton time” is one of your favourite activities at school as you are waiting patiently for your turn to choose your preferred song. There are so many songs that you like: 5 little firemen, The wheels on the bus, Little Peter Rabbit, 3 little monkeys, We’re going to the zoo, Old MacDonald had a farm and many many more…

Today we chose one of your favourite songs “Walking through the jungle”. I hope you like it! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Have a lovely day and you know I am here anytime you want anything!

Science – simple forces!

Good Morning!

This week we have been looking at science.ย  Miss Mitrou explored ice and water and Mrs Clarke was looking at floating and sinking.

Today I was going to show you some forces.

Force is what makes things move.ย  We looked at some simple forces during our toys topic, like shaking and rolling.

Using items at home you can try some of my ideas to explore what makes things move. Even just spending 5 minutes exploring these ideas can be fun…. I know everyone enjoyed rolling when we did it in class!ย  So here are some ideas for rolling.

right click and select copy

I made a video about ‘rolling’.ย  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmZkMH2K9ZY&feature=youtu.be&safe=active

You could look in your house for different things and find out whether they can roll?ย ย  Rolling on a smooth surface things move faster, and on a bumpy surface outside (or carpet) things move slower?ย  You might use a ramp to make things move faster.

But I have some other ideas you might want to explore using different forces. You can move items using blowing (using air to move things).

right click and select copy

I made another wee video, this one is about ‘blowing’ .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpkJ-F2_elc&feature=youtu.be&safe=active

You can try blowing a paper ball.ย  You can use a straw to blow.ย  You can make a fan to move air and move the ball.ย  Or get some help and use a hairdryer! What makes the paper ball move the most? Or just have fun blowing bubbles! These experiments are fun to do and help you understand how things move.

Make a fan activity.ย  I made another video of me making a very simple fan – all you need is paper (and some pens if you want to decorate it).ย  This might be useful when the weather is very hot too – you can use it to blow cool air on your face.ย  It is a lovely sensory experience to feel the air!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2WO3mI5xNg&feature=youtu.be&safe=active

Also there is a link below to some sesame street videos all about forces!

https://www.sesamestreet.org/toolkits/stem/force

So lots of ideas to look at – maybe you would like to try one at home. Just to experience the different ways things can move….

The main thing is to have fun!

Stay safe…

Mrs Inglis

Happy Monday Skye class!

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!

This week we will focus on SCIENCE and today we have a fun activity that you all loved in class! Today we are going to explore water and ice.

right click and select copy

Do you have an ice pack at home in your freezer? You can touch it and can you feel how it is? Alternatively you can touch and feel an ice bag of frozen fruits or vegetables.

right click and select copy

I have an activity for you to do if you want. You only need some things that you have at home and time to wait until the water is frozen.

Instructions:

  • put some of your favourite (small) toys in a food bag/ plastic bag/ tub
  • pour water
  • add soap if you want
  • put it in the freezer and let it freeze for some hours.

right click and select copy

  • When it is frozen, you can take it out and use warm water to melt it.
  • Can you get your toys back?
  • You can use any tool you have to break the ice! (eg. cutlery, kitchen tools etc.)
  • Don’t forget to tidy up when you are finished!

I hope you have a good day! ๐Ÿ™‚
