RE – Share the work from last week about features of different places of worship. Look at the pictures that I have shared.

Choose three of the features of places of worship that we have talked about and write a sentence for each to explain what it is.

Explain how the features that you have chosen help people to worship.


How much of a solid can dissolve in a liquid? What would you estimate? Is it the same for each solid?

For this lesson you will need a small amount of water (50ml) in a clear container and some salt or sugar and a spoon to do the experiment.


 When no more solid can be dissolved into a liquid, the solution is said to be ‘saturated’.


Compare both salt and sugar, working with no more than 50 ml water and solids to begin with.


Add a level spoon full at a time and stir until it dissolves, keep adding a spoon at a time and stirring. Keep going until you start to see small amounts of salt or sugar in the bottom of your container. How many spoonfuls could be dissolved in 50ml of water?



How will you know when the solution is saturated? What will you see? What will the solution feel like? Do you think that more or less of the solid would dissolve if the water were hotter? Why?


When you have completed the experiment, use the assignment in TEAMs to share your findings with your teacher.

PSHE – Make a Museum of Memories on a page or a piece of A4 paper.


Think about the things you would like to remember about your time at Whitwell
Primary School.

What have you achieved, been involved in, who have you met.

Share things you have done and celebrate learning and successes. This could be from nursery to Y5/6!
