This term our theme is based on The Blitz. We would like you to take ownership of your homework over the next Half Term. Below is a table from which you can choose tasks. You should complete one language, one maths and one creative task during the Half Term, completing one task every two weeks.

You can complete the three tasks in any order and your work needs to be submitted by the following dates:  Task 1: by 05/10/18,  Task 2: by 19/10/18, Task 3: on Monday 05/11/18.

Potions

This project has a science focus and teaches children about the changing state of materials including solids, liquids and gases. At the heart of this project children write autobiographies and biographies of famous scientists and develop additional skills in recording investigations and fair tests using scientific formats and vocabulary. In the Innovate Stage children apply their skills and understanding by creating their own products to sell in the gift shop ‘Potions’ using what they have learnt about materials and their changing properties.

In this project the children will learn:

About processes which change the state of a range of materials

including freezing, melting, boiling, drying, dissolving and burning;

How materials can be separated by filtering and sieving

How we use these processes in our everyday lives;

How to carry out fair tests and investigations;

About the features of autobiographical and biographical writing

and how to use these to write about themselves and others;

How to carry out tests and investigations safely and with attention to detail;

How to use maths including measures and money in a real life context.
