It would be lovely if you could create a rainbow picture to put up on your windows to make North Finchley colourful. smiley

Maths (30 mins) - Lesson Four: Capacity and Volume
Investigation: Walk around your home with an adult. What containers can you see? A bath? A sink? Talk to your adult - What would you use to fill them up the quickest? Would it take longer to fill a bath with a glass or a bucket?


Topic (30 mins) – Computing – Every hero needs a villain to go up against! You have already created a Traction Man or Traction Girl of your own, now it is time to create a new villain. Remember, in Traction Man, the villains were Evil Pillows, Poisonous Dishcloth and a few others. Think of a normal object in your house and give it a villain name. Create your villain on Purple Mash – Art – 2paintapicture.
