YEAR 2 Homework - Muck, Mess and Mixtures
The new projects run for the second half of the Spring term, Monday 25th February to Friday 29th March. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home.
Below are a list of ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.
- Cook something with a grown-up and create a picture record of what you have done. Perhaps you could try one of Roald Dahl’s revolting recipes?
- Take your grown-up shopping and encourage them to buy a food they’ve never eaten before.
- In the bath, use a measuring jug to measure different amounts of water. Create your own capacity problems and bring them into school for other children to solve.
- Create your own piece of artwork inspired by Carl Warner using foods you have at home. Take photos of your creation and take it into school on photo paper or a digital storage device.
- Make your own slush drink by freezing a cup of juice. How long does it take to freeze? How about making different-coloured drinks by mixing different juices? Record your investigation in a scientific report.
- Set up a melting experiment. Take two or three glasses and fill them with the same number of ice cubes. Put them in different places and see which melts first. Do the ice cubes melt faster if you stir them? Present your investigation in a digital format.
- Compare how long it takes for a sugar lump to dissolve in warm and cold water. How can you record your findings?
- Work with an adult at home to create a clay tile imprinted with different patterns and shapes or decorated with clay slip.
- Create an original piece of artwork inspired by an artist you admire and bring it to school to show your class.
- Write a poem with the title ‘Muck, Mess and Mixtures’. Include some exciting adjectives and read it aloud to the class.
