Yesterday we found a butterfly, it hadn’t moved all playtime! So we decided to try and help it, it looked like it’s wing was damaged 😔 We used the internet to find out what butterflies liked. We found out that they liked ivy and Buddleia. The butterfly certainly did enjoy them both! We learnt that […]Read More Reception Science – operation save the butterfly
In Science last week we looked at how certain dietary and lifestyle choices can affect the circulatory system. We spoke about how making healthy choices can promote a healthy mind as well as a healthy body and we spoke about the negative effects of a poor diet, smoking, drinking alcohol or taking drugs. We learned […]Read More UKS2 Science
Today year 2 had a busy science afternoon! First they continued to explore what it means if a material is waterproof or absorbent. We discussed why materials are waterproof, such as metal and plastic and why they are absorbent such as a fabric and paper. The children then investigated making parts of their paper waterproof […]Read More Year 2 science; how can we make paper waterproof?
We would like to start this blog post by apologising for the messy children many of you welcomed home today. We did wear aprons, but still managed to get messy! Both Mrs Woodley and I got messy too! There was plenty of learning going on though! We investigated cornflour! We added the “powder” and the […]Read More Reception Science – cornflour
A big thank you for the amazing home learning project that you’ve all been working on. There will be happy birds hopping onto our bird feeders for us to observe now!Read More Autumn watch in Preschool
Year 2 carried out an experiment to find out if different materials are waterproof or absorbent. We started by discussing what it means if something is waterproof or absorbent and thinking of examples of materials that hold these properties. The children then made predictions about the waterproof properties of paper, cardboard, metal, plastic and fabric […]Read More Year 2 Science: Are materials waterproof or absorbent?
Years 3 & 4 investigated switches in science this week. Using our knowledge of circuits, we discussed what a switch does, how it works and where it can be positioned within a circuit. We then had a lot of fun experimenting with different switches and even managed to make a switch out of a paper […]Read More Switching on the Science in LKS2
This week Years 5 and 6 investigated the effect of exercise on heart rate and collected data to show this. First, we analysed some data showing different heart rates throughout the day, discussing why the heart beats faster at certain points in the day (when we are awake). We also talked about how heart rates […]Read More UKS2 Science
Today year 2 completed their investigation into the best materials to reduce the sound of an ipad alarm. Last week they tested newspaper and fabric and today plastic was put to the test. The children made predictions, recorded their results and wrote their methods and conclusions. Fabric was found to be the best sound absorbing […]Read More Year 2 science: Sound reduction experiment continued and house building.
Today, Year One started their investigation on Seasonal Changes. They want to know how much rain falls in Autumn. Mr George has checked the forecast, looks like there will be lots of data to collect on Monday! Year 1 has placed 3 rain guages in the playground. One in the open, one in a planter […]Read More Year 1 Science – How much rain falls in Autumn?
