Year 6 2019 - 2020

Miss Spencer

 

WELCOME TO YEAR 6! 

For those of you coming back to school on Monday 29th June, school will look a little different so I have included some pictures.

Areas have been marked out so that we can keep our distance where possible. We have a handwashing station in each classroom so ensure that we are washing our hands regularly. There will be some areas that we are not allowed to go as we may burst another bubble.

You will find all of your work for the rest of this term in your home learning packs. If you have any questions then email me at: aspencer@daven.cheshire.sch.uk

PE with Joe Wicks:

Joe Wicks goes live every day at 9am.

Reading

Each day David Walliams is releasing free audio story for you to listen to. Have a go at completing an Accelerated Reader quiz on the story that you listen to if it is available.

https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

Take a look at the Parent Guidance on how to support children with their reading at home.

 

Oxford Owl are also providing FREE ebooks – you just need to register with an email (ask parents/guardians permission!) Again, have a go at completing the Accelerated Reader quizzes for each book that you read.

WOW SCIENCE

BALLOON CHEMISTRY: Balloon Baking Soda Science Experiment

You will need: Baking Soda, Vinegar, Empty Water Bottles, Balloons, Measuring Spoons, Funnel (optional but helpful)

1. Blow up the balloon a bit to stretch it out.

2. Use the funnel and teaspoon to add baking soda to the balloon. Add around a teaspoon per balloon.

3. Fill the empty water bottle with Vinegar halfway.

4. When your ballons are all made, attach to the water bottle, making sure you have a good seal.

5. Lift up the balloon to dump the baking soda into the water bottle of vinegar

6. Watch the balloon fill up.

7. To get the most gas out of it, swirl the water bottle around.

Can you explain to me why this reaction happens? Send me your pictures!

 

HOMEMADE LAVA LAMPS

You will need: Water Bottles, Mason Jars or Plastic cups, Food Colouring, Baby Oil or Cooking Oil, Water, Alka Seltzer Tablets.

1. Fill your cup/jar about 2/3 of the way with oil. You can experiment with more or less and see which gives the best results. 

2. Next, fill the cup/jar the rest of the way with water. What do you notice about the oil and water when you mix them?

3. Add drops of food colouring to your oil and water and watch what happens.

4. Now finally, drop a tablet of Alka Seltzer. Watch closely as the magic starts to happen!

Questions:

How else can you change this lava lamp investigation? What if you didn't add oil at all? Or what if you change the temperature of the water? What would happen?

When the lava lamp chemical reaction slows down, add another Alka Seltzer tablet. What do you think will happen? How is the coloured water moving up through the oil?

Note down your answers and share your lava lamp pictures with me!

 

MAGIC MILK

You will need: Full Fat Milk, Food Colouring, Washing-up Liquid, Cotton Buds.

1. Pour the milk into a dish. You don't need a lot of milk, just to cover the bottom of the dish.

2. Fill the top of the milk with drops of food colouring. Mix them up. 

3. Now pour a bit of washing-up liquid into the bowl. Touch your cotton bud tip to the washing-up liquid. Bring it over to the milk dish and gently touch the surface of the milk with the soapy cotton bud. What happens? 

Find out why this happens, what is the chemical reaction?
