Challenge 1 –  Art

 

Our English tasks for the next couple of weeks are all linked to the ocean as World Ocean Day is coming up on the 8th June.

 

For art this week, I am challenging you to try something different. Origami!

I would like you to have a go at creating a boat using origami. I have attached a few different sets of instructions below or you could find your own to follow. Good luck!

 

I would love to see any boats you create!

If you can, send me a picture to year4@maltese.essex.sch.uk.

With permission I can share them on the class page for others to see too.

Challenge 2 – Topic

 

For your Topic this week I would like you to have a look through the PowerPoint that I have attached below.

Can you find the answers to the following questions?

 

1. How many active volcanoes are there on Earth?

2. What are the three different categories of volcanoes used by scientists?

3. What is the difference between magma and lava?

Challenge 3 –  Science

 

Water can change from a solid to a liquid. As a Solid it is ice. As a Liquid it is water.

When ice is heated it melts from a solid to a liquid.

 

This can also happen to other solids.

Example: chocolate

When solid chocolate is heated it melts into a liquid.

 

Can you think of at least 5 other solids that become liquid when heated?

Helpful hit: lots can be found in the kitchen

Challenge 4 – Computing

 

Before half term we were learning about coordinates in maths. Have a go at these online games to see how quickly you can identify coordinates.

The best time to investigate evaporation at home is on a sunny day.

Choose one of the following ways to investigate evaporation or think of your own way investigation...

 

1. Make 3 different sized puddles of water outside, small, medium and large. Record how long it takes for each one to evaporate.  (this will not work on grass)

 

2. Use 3 different pieces of kitchen roll, add different amounts of water to each, place them on a window sill or attach them to the window – record how long each one takes to evaporate.

 

Challenge 3 - PE - Target practice

 

Your task this week is to design your own target practice challenge.

Your challenge can be as creative as you like. It can involve scoring points or hitting targets in order.

Your equipment can be as big or small as you like…. Marbles, tiddlywinks, table tennis balls, football…

If you can… teach someone how to play or take a picture of your challenge.
