We investigated whether lamps would be dimmer or brighter in a circuit if we used more than one bulb, but still only one battery.
Moving on from our Bright Sparks visit, we were challenged to predict and test whether a series of circuits would work and offer explanations why.
What a great way to begin our Electricity topic, with a visit from Bright Sparks. We learned how to make circuits and which materials were the best at insulating and conducting electricity.
We made our own games based around the theme of ‘Snakes and Ladders’, all about how to look after our teeth.
We used a model to create our own digestive system. The children were then able to describe what happens at each stage of the process. They certainly recognised the end product, even though it was only weetabix and banana!
Using our new knowledge of teeth, we created our own non-chronological report all about them.
Finally, we saw the end results of our comparative test. We then wrote about the drinks we should avoid, hoping to convince others of our findings.
Some of the egg shells had changed dramatically, having been left in their liquids for over two weeks!
We began an experiment, looking at the effects of drinks on our teeth. We’ll check the results in 5 days.
We had a go at making our own set of teeth!
We began our topic on teeth by investigating which type of teeth we have and the jobs they all do.
We have been studying the trees which all of our classes are named after. Today we went into the woodlands to spot the ones that grow there.
