– hundreds and thousands or chocolate chips (to serve)
STEP 1 Place the milk, sugar and vanilla into the doubled-up medium zip-seal bags. Close and secure with sticky tape if the seal isn’t strong. Tip the ice and salt into the large bag, then place the smaller bags inside the larger one, and seal well.
STEP 2 You will need to keep the bags moving for 10-15 mins to freeze the milk. Gently throw the bag from hand to hand or take turns shaking it – it’s a good idea to wear gloves to keep your hands warm! Remove the ice-cream bag, open and scoop into bowls. Sprinkle with hundreds & thousands.
THE SCIENCE BIT
Under normal circumstances, water freezes at 0C. But adding salt to the ice lowers the temperature to -10C, meaning the milk freezes in minutes.
Their home learning will regularly be posted in to our Microsoft Teams classroom. Please let me know if you have any issues accessing it.
For further support in maths, there are lots of ways you can support them – playing card games or board games for example, or asking questions like “Dinner will be in 20 minutes – what time will it be ready?”
Here are some more ideas:
It’s also really important that your child is reading regularly at home. Reading for 20 minutes a day exposes them to nearly 2,000,000 words a year, and will not only help develop their vocabulary, but also their understanding of grammar and sentence structure. It will also broaden their understanding of all sorts of topics! It also has been shown to help develop empathy. Reading doesn’t have to be of fiction books – it can be non-fiction, magazines, comics, newspapers, internet articles, cereal packets… anything!
We have just finished our English unit around Oliver Jeffers’ Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth. It has been lovely to discuss our world and our role in it, and the children have produced some beautiful artwork to go alongside it.
Here you can see the children painting wonderful watercolour self portraits.
Good morning Year 4! Happy Friday! And today is the last day of term. 🙁 BUT that means you have 6 weeks to enjoy the summer break! 😁
So today’s maths is celebrating the summer holidays. Your job today is to put all your maths knowledge to use, to find out who is responsible for all the melted ice cream! You’ll need to put your detective hats on.🕵️♂️🕵️♀️
If you need any help or have any questions, just let me know in the comments section. I will put the answers up towards the end of the day.
I’m really looking forward to meeting you all properly when you come back to school in September.
I have a small request to make from you over the summer holidays.
I would like you to email me 3 photos of things that are important to you. It could be of absolutely anything: your favourite cuddly toy, your favourite book, your favourite meal, your favourite place, your favourite game… the list goes on!
This way I can get to know the important things about you and we can share them together in September. 😊
You can send them to me at the class email address:
Have a lovely, relaxing and enjoyable break over the holidays.
