This week, Year 3 and 4 have ventured inside the body to look at the digestive system! We travelled from the start of the digestive system (the mouth), down the oesophagus into the stomach, then into small intestines, followed by the large intestines then finally into the rectum to wait for a signal to the […]Read More Science in LKS2
Today in Year One, we looked closer at the human body. We reminded ourselves of the Parts of the Body but started to notice, not everyone is the same. Some people have straight hair, others curly. Some people have light skin, dark skin, a birthmark or freckles. These things make us different but we’re all […]Read More Year 1 Science – Are all bodies the same?
We learned all about Carl Linnaeus and how his system of classification is still used today to group organisms based on shared observable characteristics. Using his methods we created our own classification tree to place different organisms according to their anatomy and properties. After learning all about invertebrates, we watched an incredible video of a […]Read More UKS2 Science – classifying animals
What is the difference between a jellyfish and a slug? How related are a bee and a bat? These are the kinds of questions we will be getting our heads around in our new Science Topic- Classification. To get the grips with classification, we had a go at grouping something we know really well- chocolate! […]Read More UKS2 Science – Classifying Choccies
LKS2 carried on learning about teeth this week by recapping the different types of human teeth and their roles in digestion. We then looked at some x-rays, listened to some singing teeth and discovered how much is going on below the gum line – did you know that your adult teeth are waiting in your […]Read More How clean are YOUR teeth? 🦷 LKS2 find out
Year One have been super excited about our new books. These are books that Mr Wilson shared with us in assembly which are now in our book corner! We are particularly excited to read ‘Shark Lady’, a book about an amazing scientist called Eugene Clark. We discovered interesting facts about her life and the challenges […]Read More Year 1 Book of the Month – Eugenie Clark, The Shark Lady
Today’s science lesson took us around the world finding out about 8 different habitats. The children designed and illustrated a poster to show how habitats differ and thought about why an animal’s natural habitat is so important. We were very excited to discover that our ants are beginning to move from their small nest in […]Read More Y2 Science: Habitats around the world
Year One have been looking at parts of the Body! We created our own diagrams of the human body and labelled the parts we know! Finally, we put our knowledge together to make a display.Read More Year 1 Science – Parts of the Body
Continuing our exploration of living things and their habitats, today Year 2 considered what we all need to survive. We then researched a variety of invertebrates, drew labelled diagrams and wrote about how they survive in their natural habitat. At the end of our lesson we met the newest member of year 2, a queen […]Read More Y2: What do living things need to survive?
