Year 5 & 6 were set a Cluedo inspired challenge to work out the details of a murder. They used mirrors and torches to track down clues hidden around the class and used reflections in order to solve the mystery.Read More Who killed Mrs Bushell?
We have continued our work on Sound by designing, carrying out and evaluating an investigation to explore the question, “Does a sound get fainter as you move further away? ” We used measuring skills with a metre tape and a datalogger to carry out our investigation before evaluating the results and discussing no how we […]Read More Sound Scientific Thinking in Year 3
As part of our science topic on Light, Years 5 and 6 have been learning all about bioluminescent creatures. The writing focus was on formality and the children worked hard to develop a chatty, informal tone throughout their non-fiction reports. They then presented their writing as an eye-catching poster.Read More The Brilliance of Bioluminescence in Years 5 and 6
As part of our Science topic of Light, Years 5 and 6 have made periscopes and kaleidoscopes. They followed instructions carefully and then had fun experimenting with them! They used their scientific skills of observation to explain how they work.Read More Periscopes and Kaleidoscopes in Years 5 and 6
Year 3 have been leaning about sound. We know that it travels in waves and that the height and shape of the wave tells us whether it is loud or quiet and low or high-pitched. We used our knowledge to produce some vibrant artwork showing different sound patterns.Read More The Artistry of Sound
Yesterday Year 2 continued their learning about habitats with a visit from Zoolab. We saw, stroke and even held some creatures from different habitats in Africa.Read More Zoolab Visit to Year 2
We thoroughly enjoyed the visit from Zoolab today and learnt lots about the animals, their adaptations and habitats. The children were very brave and even held some of the animals.Read More KS1 gets a visit from Zoolab!
In KS1 we have started learning about habitats and why animals are suited to living in certain places. We then joined together to design animals for a given habitat. The brief was to give them a name and give three reasons why they were suited to that habitat. Some great collaboration and creativity was shown […]Read More Animal Design Challenge Year 1 and 2
After learning about the seven life processes last week, the first thing Year 2 were asked to do was prove their group member is alive. After that, we had a group discussion about things that are dead (have been living before but are dead now) and tjinfs that have never been alive. The toy dog […]Read More Dead or Never Alive- Classification in Year 2
What a fantastic start to the week! Samia has been in Year 3, delighting the children with visions of a robotic-led future and encouraging the children to get hands-on with Lego robots. We have made an energy-saving fan with flashing lights and sounds and can’t wait for our session next week.Read More Lego Robotics Coding in Year 3
