The next step in our voyage into algebra today. We'll be learning about forming expressions. Remember to be resilient - give it a go! Watch the video and then try the work afterwards. Use the answers to see how you did at the end.

Year 6 - Week 7 - Lesson 2 - Forming expressions


Another activity from the virtual Science Jamboree today Year 6. An investigation into balancing cans. Watch the video below and have a think about how it is done.

Can Challenge I

The East Kent Science Jamboree 2020

Once you've watched the first video and had a think about how it happens, watch the second video here:

The Can Challenge Part II

The East Kent Science Jamboree

So, you now have another little investigation to carry out. How little water can you put into a can to make it balance and what is the maximum you can add before it falls? Perhaps you are wondering how this works! To understand it you must learn about a scientific idea called ‘Centre of Gravity’. Do that in the following video and see two more amazing balancing acts.

The Can Trick Part III

Have a look online and see what other balancing tricks you can find. I'd love to see some pictures - please do send them to me when you're done!
