LKS2 finished off their work on Light by investigating whether you can change the size of a shadow. We had fun deciding whether images of shadows were real or fake, by using our knowledge of how shadows are formed. We then watched a brilliant hand shadow performance, which you can watch here and discussed what […]Read More LKS2 ask, “Can you change the size of a shadow?”
In Science last week, year 1 were playing a game where they have to guess what material their partner is holding. The materials were made from wood, metal, plastic, rock and fabric. Is it flexible or rigid? Is it heavy or light? Is it smooth or rough? Is it hard or soft?Read More Science in Year 1 – What material am I holding?
Years 3 and 4 spent Thursday afternoon exploring the world of shadows and working on making scientific predictions. We learnt the words transparent, translucent and opaque to describe how much light different materials allow through. We established that shadows are when light is blocked by a solid object and chose different materials to put between […]Read More LKS2 investigate shadows
This week, UKS2 tested which materials made good thermal insulators. They were testing to see whether paper, foam or felt would keep water hot. Using a thermometer, they carefully measured the temperature of the hot water in their beakers and recorded the temperature every minute in a table. After the experiment, children from different groups […]Read More UKS2 Science – Thermal Insulators
Years 3 and 4 have continued their learning about light with some further investigation into mirrors and reflection. We have investigated the fact that we need light to see and drawn simple conclusions on this subject. We then focused on the concept of reflection and used mirrors to generate and answer questions and to discuss […]Read More Mirrors and reflection in LKS2
This week in Science, Years 5 and 6 have been testing materials’ hardness, toughness and response to magnets. They considered how to make their experiments fair tests and, after conducting their experiments, recorded their findings in a table.Read More UKS2 Science
Year 2 conducted an experiment to find out which material is best suited for making cutlery. The children scored each type of cutlery and also considered the environmental impact before coming to a conclusion.Read More Science in Y2: Which material is best for cutlery?
It’s sink or swim! Let’s carry on with our scientific investigations by observing what sinks and floats and noticing what different materials do in water.

Let’s make bubbles! Bubbles are great fun, you will probably have seen a lot of them on your many hand washing adventures over the past few months. But how big a bubble can you make? Can you make a bubble that can fly? What colours can you see in your bubbles? Remind you of anything! […]Read More Preschool 21/5
Don’t forget Mr Wilson’s Collective Worship is today 👍. Can you sing a rainbow? 🌈 Today you could explore colour mixing. Red, yellow and blue belong in a family of colours called Primary. When they are mixed together they make a new family of colours called Secondary (green, orange and purple). The question is, which […]Read More Preschool 15/5
