Science

I have also uploaded a 'Question Wonder' sheet which will help you to support your children with science at home. When your child is carrying out an investigation in home learning, or when discussing something scientific, use this sheet to support questioning. For example " I wonder why _________ happened?"

LI: To identify and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials

 

HELP!!! As you know from our first Science lesson back, it’s getting darker later now and the sun rises earlier. I have been sleeping terribly recently because as the mornings are becoming brighter, the early morning sunshine is waking me up.

 

What could be some solutions to me problem?

Better curtains?

Eye mask?

 

I think I need better curtains for my bedroom that won’t let the light through. I’m setting you a challenge of choosing some new curtains for my bedroom.

 

Transparent, Translucent and Opaque

 

Do you know what these words mean? Have a look at the slides below and see if you can answer what is transparent, translucent and opaque.

Task 1:

 

  • You will need to test different materials around your house with a torch (you can use the iPhone torch).
  • Shine the torch on one side of the material and see if you can see the light on the other side.
  • Some examples of materials that you can use around the house:
    • foil
    • glass
    • thick plastic (like a toy)
    • cling film plastic
    • thick fabric
    • baking paper
  • Can you put the materials you find in a table? (example below)

 

 

Transparent

Translucent

Opaque

 

 

 

 

 

 

Task 2:

 

Write up a response about what you would like your curtains to be made of:

 

E.g

I would like my curtains to be made from ___________ because _________________________.

 

I think the curtains in a baby’s room should be made from ____________ because ____________________________.

 

I think a shower curtain should be made from ______________ because _____________________
