This weeks English is based around handwriting using Oxford Owls and also some PSHE work.

Oxford Owls – handwriting year 1 has a number of handwriting activities to focus on.

Our writing in English this week follows on from last weeks link to PSHE and the idea of creating a time capsule record of our time away from school.  This gives lots of opportunities to talk at home, it is not essential for all of the sheets to be completed (although some may want to). If you do not have access to a printer, its okay, just use paper or your writing book to get your ideas down. This will be something to look back at when you are older.

In school we will be looking at bubbles this week:

Art/DT – make your own bubble wand using pipe cleaner. If at home try cookie cutter, stick and string, Wire coat hanger. Bubble mixture – 1 litre hot water, 250ml washing up liquid, 2-4 tblsp glycerine (if available).

Only pop your own bubbles, don’t blow bubbles at other people.

Science – Fun with bubbles

Can you make a bubble with just water? Do they last longer in shade or sun? Wet or dry surface? What colours can we see in a bubble? Can bubbles work underwater? Are smaller bubbles stronger? Could a person float inside a bubble? Why/why not?
