Week Commencing 4th May

Friday 8th May 

 

Good morning Oak 3. 

 

Happy VE day! There is no 'work' set today as it is a bank holiday, but I have put a few optional VE day activities below should you wish to celebrate at home.  We hope you have a well-earned break this bank holiday weekend and enjoy the sunshine.

 

Make Lemonade 

You will need; 

3 lemons

2 oz  / 55g granulated sugar

2 pints / 1.2 litres water

 

Method

1. Peel the rind from the lemons and cut them into 1cm slices.

2. Place the lemon rinds in a bowl and sprinkle the sugar over them. Let this stand for about an hour.

3. Boil the water and then pour over the sugared lemon rinds. Allow this mixture to cool and then strain.

4. Squeeze the lemons into another bowl. Pour the juice through a sieve into the sugar mixture. Stir well, pour into a jug and pop it in the fridge. Serve with ice.

 

Carrot Scones

 

You will need;

12 tbsp self raising flour & 1 teaspoon baking powder – sifted together

2 tbsp butter (or margarine)

4 tbsp sugar

8 tbsp grated carrot

A few drops of vanilla essence

English Heritage Raspberry Preserve

 

Method

 1. Pre-heat oven to gas mark 6 / 200°C. Grease a baking tray.

2. Leave the butter out so that it becomes nice and soft to work with - this makes it easier to mix in the sugar. Beat these until they are light and creamed.

3. Add in the grated carrot, a bit at a time. It won’t look like the prettiest thing in the world – but stick with it. Add in the vanilla.

4. Slowly add the sifted flour. The more you beat, the more moisture the carrots will release to bind the mixture together. You will be left with a ball of sticky carrot-flecked dough.

5. Pinch and roll the desired amount between your hands. This recipe should make around 12 scones.

6. Place on baking tray and sprinkle with a little sugar (optional). Cook in the centre of the oven for about 20 minutes.

7. Once firm on top and at the sides, remove from the oven and cool before serving with raspberry preserve.

Good morning Oak 3 I hope you had a nice weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead. In literacy we will be studying the story ‘The Mousehole Cat’ which is linked to our topic: Storms and Shipwrecks. In maths, we will be dividing by using a method called chunking, and revising the grid method that we learnt last week. Additionally, in topic, we will be learning about the water cycle through experiments and also using our ICT skills to create an animation.

Topic

Water: Changing state:

 

  1.  Show the children the balloon of water after it has been in the freezer, then cut away the balloon to reveal the ice. What has happened to the liquid water? Why has it changed into a solid? Clarify the terms liquid and solid with the children. Do you think we could get our liquid water back again? How could we do it? Place the ice in a large bowl, and leave it in the children’s sight for the remainder of the lesson.
  2. Children to collect the cups of water from around the house and collect information about the amount of water remaining in each cup. Take measurements with a ruler to compare the rate of evaporation. What did you notice? Which glasses had least water left? Which had most left? Why did that happen? Where did the water go to? Explain the term evaporation to the children (heat in the air heats up the water and turns it into a gas).
  3. Show the children a kettle of cold water as it boils. What do you notice happening as the water gets hotter? Hold a cold metal tray or a mirror over the steam. What can you see happening now? Explain the term condensation to the children (they may know this term as moisture on a window on a cold day).

Task: Draw a diagram for each of the above activities then label them with one of the below descriptions;

  • When water is left at room temperature, it will evaporate to form a gas.
  • When water is heated to 100℃ it boils to form a steam. As the steam cools, it becomes water vapour.
  • When water cools to 0℃ it freezes to form ice.

 

Look back at the ice balloon from the start of the lesson. What has happened to it? How has the shape of the ice balloon changed? How long do you think it would take for the whole block to melt?
