Science

 

Week beginning 30th March

 

It's time for some scientific investigation! This investigation is all about splashes. When you drop things into water they make a splash but what makes a big splash and what barely makes a splash at all? Is it how heavy things are? Is it their shape? Is it whether they float or not? Your Friday challenge is to investigate how things splash! You could use a sink or a bath if you have one BUT REMEMBER TO CHECK WITH A GROWN-UP BEFORE YOU DROP ANYTHING INTO WATER!

Geography

 

Below is the link to the continents song on YouTube as well as a map to be filled in. See if you can learn all 7 seven continents as well as where they are on the map.
