Whilst making a fresh batch of salt dough we have been mixing in the ingredients in different combinations. We know that salt dissolves in water and that this is called a solution. When we added flour we talked about the consistency changing and what a solid feels like in comparison to a liquid.Read More Science in Preschool
Years 3 & 4 have learned about the essential part flowers have to play in the reproduction of flowering plants. We looked at different flowers and used magnifying glasses and careful observation skills to identify and label the different parts of a flower. We then found out how pollination and fertilisation occur and how some […]Read More Fantastic flowers in LKS2
Year 2 had a wonderful trip to Manor House Gardens where they learnt about the many different species of tree that are planted there. The children were so enthusiastic to learn and were in awe of the trees and how they contribute to our world.Read More Y2: The trees of Manor House Gardens
LKS2 have retrieved their celery from around the school in order to find out whether the temperature of the room it was in had affected the rate of water transportation. We put sticks of celery in a measuring beaker containing water and food colouring and placed them in the fridge in the staff room, Year […]Read More LKS2 Science investigation – the results are in!
In Year One science this week, we have been talking about taking care of plants and planning an experiment. We decided to put our question to the test. We have planted Geraniums in soil, sand and water. We have kept the plant and location the same to make it a fair experiment. We have changed […]Read More Year 1 Science – Do plants need soil to survive?
Years 3 & 4 have set up a week-long investigation to establish whether room temperature affects the speed of water transportation in plants. We’ve put 100ml of water and 1tsp of food colouring into a measuring cylinder with a stick of celery and put the cylinders in different areas around the school. In theory, the […]Read More Water transportation investigation in LKS2
Year 2 started a series of science lessons on how important and amazing trees are for humans, animals, birds, insects, plants and the planet. The children were able to share their existing knowledge about trees and build upon it. We discussed the many ways that trees benefit the planet and help support life. We kept […]Read More Treemazing Trees
Years 3 & 4 have recapped some of their previous learning about plants in order to get us going on our Summer 2 Science topic of plants. Their recall of the parts of a plant was very impressive and we have investigated the function of each plant. MRS GREN, our acronym from last half term’s […]Read More Parts of a Plant LKS2
