Today, year 4 designed their own investigation to find out which materials were conductors and which were insulators. We found out that metals conduct electricity, but rubber and plastic doesn’t- which is why wires are cases in plastic. It was great to see some great teamwork and problem solving throughout.Read More Conductors and insulators
Year 3 aren’t going to let the weather get in the way of a Science investigation. With coats on and iPads in hand, we headed out to the Wildlife Area in order to have a close-up look at soil. We have established that the 4 components of soil are: air, water, organic matter and rocks. […]Read More Super Soil and Focused Photography
In Science we have been learning about the importance of exercise. In Maths we have been recording our results using tally charts and tables. Next stop- pictograms!Read More Data Handling in Year 2
Last week, Year 6 built a line of 400 Multi-Link bricks in order to represent almost 5 billion years of the world’s life (each brick equalling 12.5 million years). We placed important world events on the line including the evolution of humans (who only appeared at the very end of the last brick). We then […]Read More Year 6: Evolution & Inheritance
Today Year 2 went on a trip to the Horniman Museum. They held some amazing stuffed animals and learnt about their habitats. They followed a trail around the Natural History gallery to find other amazing animals. We finished off our visit to the small farm where we saw alpacas, sheep and rabbits.Read More Year 2 Visit the Horniman Museum
As part of our Space topic and to celebrate International Women’s Day on Friday, Year 5 have been learning about the amazing Katherine Johnson. They learnt about her critical contribution to NASA during missions to the moon and Mercury back in the 1950s and 60s. We all decided that she was an absolute inspiration and […]Read More Art inspired by the inspirational Katherine Johnson!
Year 4 have got their new science topic off with a bang- electricity. We have already been on a hunt around to school, identifying electrical appliances and finding out how they are powered. Afterwards we even made our own electrical circuits without any instructions to try and make the bulb light up. By problem solving […]Read More It’s electric!
Today in Science we learnt about hygiene. We carried out an experiment to find out which is the best way to wash our hands and why: with warm soapy water, warm water or cold water. First we got our hands dirty in the wildlife area and then we tested the different water. We found out […]Read More Washing Hands Experiment in Year 2
As an introduction to our Space topic, we used a scale of 1cm = 10 million km to create approximate models of the solar system in Maths.Read More Using scale to make a model of the solar system
In Science we have been learning about what all animals (including humans) need to survive. We became “Pets at Home” experts by using their website to carry out some research into what we would need to provide different animals in order to keep them alive. Please see our experts below for some advice!Read More Pets at Home Year 2 Science
