Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas - Alchemy Island


The new projects run for the first half of the Spring term. 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 is a list of ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.

  • Make a list of foods that change state when heated or cooled, such as eggs, water, butter and chocolate.
  • Find out if your family owns anything made of gold or another precious metal or gemstone. What can you find out about where it came from?
  • Find out about – and watch! – films that show portals to other fantasy worlds, such as ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland.
  • Use a periodic table to find out the atomic numbers and symbols for metals, such as lead, copper, silver, zinc, iron and platinum.
  • Use a magnet to test the magnetic properties of metals around the home and record your discoveries in a data table.
  • Combine art and science to make an astonishing and unique gemstone! Experiment with materials such as wax, resin, plaster and jelly!
  • Plan a journey using a map and record the co-ordinates of where you went!


This half term we will be learning about the Muslim faith so you may also choose to complete a project based on this.

  • You could find images of mosques and label them.
  • You could research the items used in Islamic prayer and make a poster.


In French we will be practising how to say days and months.

  • You could make a French calendar with your family’s birthdays on.
  • You could make a snap game with the English and French translations.

At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.

Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed

Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete

Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete
