Science - Everyday Materials and Their Uses
Today, we’re going to  be exploring materials that float and sink.  We're going to do an experiment!

The science skill that we are using today is testing.  We are comparing materials to see if they float or sink. 

So today's science character is 'Supergirl'. 
She is the character who does testing and experiments

Our Learning Intention is:   Can I carry out an experiment to see which materials float and sink?

Here's the link for Lesson 3:

Key words to remember:
Absorbant -   Materials that can 'soak up'
Waterproof - Materials that keep liquids out

 If you want to do the experiment, you will need:

 If you don't have these things, you can watch the presenter doing the experiment. 

Here is the table that you will need to record the results. (You can draw it into your book or print this one)

Drawing Competition:  Can you design a new Olympic Mascot?

The Summer Olympics in Tokyo are planned to begin in July 2021.  We have been invited to take part in a competition, by Harrogate Schools Sports Partnership.

The challenge is to design a new Olympic mascot. If you click on this link, you can get some ideas by looking at the mascots from other years:


Each school that is taking part in the Olympic countdown has been allocated a country to represent.  Fountains has been allocated China, so try to link your design to China.
Please draw a picture of your new mascot, and colour it in using whatever resources you have at home.
If you would like to take part, design your mascot today and send it to me, so that it can be entered into the competition.


For your exercise today, you could go outside, or how about joining yesterday's PE session with Joe Wicks? 

Also see the Travel to Tokyo challenge on the News Page of the website.
I wonder how many miles you can collect? 

Thankyou for working so hard on your activities.  I have enjoyed looking at the work that has been sent in this week.
Please let me know if you have any worries or if there is anything I can help you with. 

Mrs Lewis will be with you tomorrow and she is looking forward to seeing you all on teams.  Work hard and try your best.  I'll be back with you on Monday. 
Take care and try to be helpful at home. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Micklefield
