Good Morning 4A,
I have LOVED seeing you all this week and having a catch up! Hopefully, we will get some time together in September so you can spend time with your friends before moving onto your new class. Yesterday, I was in the green room with the key worker children and Miss Eve and I did a paper mache volcano. We're waiting for it to dry, then we will paint it next week when I'm back in. We also made salt dough ornaments - we are hoping to bake them today. We ran out of time yesterday as they take three hours to bake!!!! I'm going to share the recipe with you as all you need is salt, plain flour and water to make the dough. You can make the dough into different shapes and add food colouring if you like - we kept ours plain so we could paint them after. We had a lot of fun doing it so make sure you have a go! Have a great weekend and I'll speak to you on Monday!
Lots of love Miss Anwar xx
DIY SALT DOUGH ORNAMENT
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup salt
- 1/2 cup water
- Bowls (one for mixing, another for cutting out your circle)
Mix the salt and flour in a large bowl.
Make a well in the salt/flour mixture and add the water.
Knead until smooth and shape into a ball.
If you want to color your salt dough, simply mix in a few drops of food coloring while you are kneading it.
You can let your salt dough ornaments air dry, but they can also be dried in the oven. Bake at 200 F until dry. The amount of time required depends on the size and thickness of your masterpiece.
Thin flat ornaments may only take 45-60 minutes, but thicker ones like the ones I did can take 2-3 hours or more.
Make sure you store any leftover dough in an airtight container or it will get all dry and crumbly.
Happy Friday Year 4,
The end of the week has arrived again. These weeks are flying by! I have particularly enjoyed this week as it has been soooo nice seeing each and every one of you that I have visited. I know that it felt strange for some of you when we turned up on your doorstep, as you are used to seeing us in school but we really appreciated you allowing us to come and visit you at your own home. Please keep on sending emails and pictures for the last couple of weeks before we break up for summer. It is great to hear your news and see what you have been up to.
Don't forget to submit your stories to Virgin Radio's competition using the website link below. We may have a winning story from Fixby.
I look forward to hearing from you all soon.
Have a super weekend.
Here is an arithmetic paper for you to have a go at. The answers are at the back.
Today's reading task is to answer some inference questions based on this picture:
- Describe an egg and see if a partner can guess it.
- Which dragon do you think is the most dangerous? Why?
- Which dragon do you think will be the friendliest? Why?
- Which species could survive in cold temperatures? How do you know?
- Which dragon egg would you like to find?
- What would you do if you came across a Norwegian Ridgeback egg?
Using the picture above on Dragon Eggs, write a set of instructions on how to care for the egg and then once hatched, a baby dragon. We have attached a checklist to make sure that you have included all the skills needed to write a set of instructions.
You can also use the template below to help you lay it out.
Follow the powerpoint to learn about a famous Pop Artist called Andy Warhol. Have a go at creating you own artwork by using repeated images to make a pattern. You can draw an object, a famous person or even your own portrait in the style of Andy Warhol. Remember, he used lots of bright colours to make his work stand out.
