Oh Year 6 , yesterday whilst I was getting today's lessons ready, the news came on the tv and there was a report about the Dad featured in the film clips below. He is a stay-at-home Dad (even before Corvid 19) and clearly has a keen interest in fun science activities.
What I particularly liked is that most of the 'equipment' used are items you would have around the house … or can cheaply get the next time you go out to do your shopping.
I thought I would post one of these clips per week.
Have a look, see what you think is taking place and why these reactions are happening e.g. why are the balloons inflating after the reaction?
Have a think, do some research online.
Briefly record your ideas and research in your exercise book.
Let me know what you think - it looks good fun to me - I'm off to hunt for some old party balloons in my kitchen cupboards!
Think FIRST whether you would be better doing the experiment near a sink, on a flat surface, or outside!
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AN ADULT WITH YOU, especially for the 1st activity shown today.
FILM / RECORD it and e-mail it to me. I can post it on the Y6 webpage.
BE A REFLECTIVE LEARNER - so much has changed for you and the way you are learning.
Home school is different to the classroom and some things will be better and some things will be worse. Therefore, it is important that you think carefully and assess what works well for you (w.w.w.) and how you can work at your best - this includes things physically around you as well as asking yourself:
Are you a visual learner - so need to see the words in order for the story to go into your brain? - If so, you will probably read best with a book in your hands.
If you prefer to handle an actual book, then a Kindle (or Kindle app - free) is probably not for you - it took me quite a while to get used to mine - I think I still prefer an actual book best of all.
Do you learn best by listening to things - an auditory learner - this kind of learning and storytelling will probably help you if you are finding it hard to get off to sleep. I love listening to stories on Audible (free at the moment) or on my Amazon Dot when I can't sleep but I do find the story does not particularly stay with me for long - I don't think I am a strong auditory learner. I'm more of a visual learner; I need to read and watch things demonstrated.
If you are a combination learner, most of us are, then you may find an e-book will work most times: you can see the words, read the words, in some e-books feel like you are flipping the pages, sometimes you can hear the book being read to you whilst you follow the words - so maybe choose a book from the e-book link.
Do you need a dictionary nearby, or Google! - to clarify the definitions of new words you may discover - I'm very much like this … I find it difficult to read on. Although sometimes I just have a pad and pen nearby and look the words up afterwards.
Try to get your reading environment the best you can for you.
