I can’t believe its Thursday!
Today is STEM & LEGO Day!
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and these are subjects that are all connected. I have a few suggestions for you today.
Once again I am just providing you with a menu of activities.
You choose the ones that interest you most.
Tomorrow (Friday) is our Virtual School Tour!
I know it’s not the same as actually going on the Tour but it will give you an idea of what to expect when we do go,
(sometime in the future).
I’m not going to tell you where we are going until tomorrow, that’s a surprise……. but I would like you to be ready with your bag packed.
A very important part of any tour, virtual or reality, is treats!!!
You have to have treats ready in the bag so get that sorted this evening – maybe a drink and packet of crisps, some fruit, a bar of chocolate and some sweets. Ok! I just want you to be prepared so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your very first ‘Virtual School Tour!!’
These are the suggestions for today........
Melting ice-cubes: (Activity sheet attached)
Look at the activity card on Melting Ice-cubes. Gather the equipment you need. Follow the instructions and observe what happens.

When these two balls fall a meter and land on a slab where will the tennis ball go?
