This week we are encouraging you to carry out some Science experiments at home. Here you will find a great set of Science experiments to carry out. These fun and easy science experiments are great to do at home because they require ingredients you are likely to already have in the kitchen. The pack contains four different science experiments including a dissolving experiment, make your own lava lamp, fun with density and fireworks in a glass.
More science experiment activities for children:
These Science Experiments are a fun way to introduce children to scientific investigation, using everyday objects. Use with the science investigation resources to get your children observing, analysing and recording the results they see. Or, for a more specific experiment, why not try the Rain Cloud in a Jar Science Experiment?
Why is science important?
Science is an important subject for children to learn as it allows them to develop their observational and analytical skills. It will help them become more curious and ask questions about certain experiments and events.
Victory in Europe Day - also known as VE Day - celebrates the Allied Forces accepting the Nazi’s unconditional surrender from World War 2. The final document was signed on 8 May 1945. Today, countries throughout the world celebrate VE Day annually, on either 8 or 9 May.
This year makes the 75th anniversary of that day and so additional celebrations had been made to mark VE day this year (prior to the lock down). However, there are still lots of interesting and fun activities you can take part in to remember this important and memorable day in history.
Why not try something different this week and try your hand at a bit of cooking. Below you will find 10 easy recipes aimed to introduce children to cooking. REMEMBER you must always have an adult's support when cooking in the kitchen!
If you're feeling a little more adventurous then why not access the Good Food website and try your hand at something a little more tricky!?!
If you cant get cooking in the kitchen why not develop your Computing skills with the following game. By putting the ingredients in, in the correct order, you are creating sequencing (fundamental to code making). Have fun in the robot bakery
