The children in Parrots have been exploring different materials. They have been identifying different properties of these materials and describing them based on the properties. We have discussed properties such as: absorbent, transparent, hard, smooth, soft. The children enjoyed playing the 'Guess…
Today in science we went looking around school to find different objects. We took some photos of the objects we found. Can you tell what they are and what material they are made from?
Hawks go outside to classify plants in science.
What different groups did you find? What characteristics did they have?
Lily has worked hard to create a wonderful picture using natural resources and some wonderful habitats work. Well done Lily for your continued hard work - I have enjoyed seeing your work.
Lily has created some wonderful models for the life cycles of a frog. Thank you and well done to you - they are brilliant.
The Ducklings have been continuing with their home learning. One of our families have had lots of fun doing challenges set by the Woodland Trust such as making pixie stew and bird spotting. Some of our Ducklings are celebrating their 5th birthdays at home too! Happy birthday to you if we have…
The children in Falcons have thoroughly enjoyed creating electrical circuits. They discussed how to adapt the different components within their circuit such as how to make the bulb shine brighter. They then discussed how these electrical circuits could be used to enhance their roller coasters and…
Today in Robins we continued investigating plants in Science.
We explored the different things plants need to grow and discussed what would happen if a plant did not receive those things.
We have placed two cat grasses we planted in the classroom, one in the cupboard without water and one…
On Thursday, Hawks investigated how some solids and liquids can melt, dissolve, evaporate and filtrate. Some of these changes are reversible and irreversible.
What did you find out during these experiments? Can you explain each key word? Can you…
The children in Falcons thoroughly enjoyed planning and carrying out a fair test based on a real-life problem. They had to decide which material would be best to melt ice - so that the Vikings could make their way to the village safely. The children completed the investigation and effectively…
In Hawks today, we used our Maths and scientific enquiry skills to find out which material would be best to insulate in the inside a Vikings' helmet.
What was your hypothesis? How did you test which material was the best? The did the results show? What was the conclusion?
The children in Falcons this week began to analyse different materials to determine their properties. They we then able to classify different materials based on their property. At the end of the session, the children then thought about an individual investigation that would enable the property to…
