Mrs Spoon

Collecting autumn leaves is fun. They are colourful! Crispy and NOISY!

We love crunching them under our feet and watching them fall from the trees.

I take a magazine out with me and slip the leaves between the pages. That way they don’t get broken on the way home.

Once home I slip the magazine under a rug for a couple of days to flatten the leaves.

Then we’re ready to make our Mrs. Spoon.

SUNDAY CHALLENGE

Imagine what it would be  like to be really small.  So small you could make your home in this empty snail shell.

Or under a rock or in a hole in a tree.


Where  would you sleep ?  What wouid be your table?  Your cups and plates?
How can you create this imaginary world?

Will you write a story or a poem or perhaps make a model or paint a picture.?

Watch the video below for more  ideas:

Evaporation with Lizzie Witch

​It was a big washing day today at Jumble House and, because we don’t have a garden, that means clothes hung from every window plus a drier in the bathroom. 

Lizzie Witch saw this as an excellent opportunity to teach us all about evaporation and steam and condensation. 

To watch the programme just click on this link (and please subscribe to our channel):-   Evaporation Programme

Lizzie left us with a challenge  and hear a a couple more: 

1. Water evaporates more quickly when it is warm than when it is cool.  Can you think of a way to,prove that this statement is true? 

2. Take two identical pieces of cloth.  Soak them in water and then squeeze the water out. Place one in a sealed plastic bag and spread the other out on the floor in a sunny place.  What do you think will happen by the same time tomorrow? 

 Check every couple of hours, record what you see and explain the results. 
 

Flying Machines 

Part one of the Sunday Challenge programmes on flying machines.

Did you know that the first plane with an engine was a biplane ? 

Bi Planes are planes with two wings, one over the other.  They have very good uplift but the ‘drag’ is much greater than with the more  modern planes so they are much slower.  The very first plane with an engine was a BiPlane. 

Freddie Jumble is very interested in planes and so is Judi. Her father was in the airforce and later in the Royal Observer Corps. 


As a child she learnt how to recognise lots of aeroplanes and later Judi learnt how to fly gliders. ( planes without engines) . 

Here she is at the controls.

Magic? Science? What is Lizzie growing in that jar? 


Is it Magic or is it Science? 

We never know when Lizzie is around but you can guarantee that something will go wrong and that she will make a lot of mess! 

It is also guaranteed that she she will make learning basic scientific concepts very magical for young audiences 

AND that this is one series of children’s programmes that adults won’t mind watching too! 

Lizzie has a glass jar containing a very weird assortment of food. 

Is she going to cook something? 

Will she make them disappear ? 

Will she say a magic spell and change them into a cake or a frog or ……? 

Click on this link to watch the video. Maybe you will find out ! Maybe you won’t ! But if you don’t try you will never know! 

Fun Science With Lizzie Witch. Food preservation.

Lizzie Witch makes a glass of dancing lava

Please remember that it is always advisable for an adult to supervise these activities.

Is it magic or is it clever science and what is that ‘magic’ powder?

Lizzie has a lot of fun and makes a lot of mess as usual whilst presenting some basic scientific concepts and fun investigations you can do at home.

But don’t be content with just copying what Lizzie does!

Science is all about trial and error.

About making mistakes and learning from them.

About changing elements of the experiment to see what happens.

In this experiment you could try changing

  • the kind of oil
  • using sparkling water
  • use sugar in place of salt
  • change the shape and size of the glass

Have fun!
