The Chorley Rangers came in to plant trees with the children as part of a local scheme to plant a tree per person in our local area. The children planted Rowan trees, they dug the holes and protected the saplings with plastic before watering them.

Bright Sparks Electricity came into carry out a workshop to kick start our electricity topic for the term. We learnt about voltage size in both mains and battery powered electricity. We made a simple circuit and then were challenged to make the circuit more complex by adding switches, motors and buzzers.

Safety Seymour gave a free workshop on the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. The children were able to recognise the signs and symptoms and new that as a gas, it was invisible and odourless.

United Utilities came in to discuss the importance of water usage, the water cycle and to reinforce keeping safe around water.

The children had a go at raising their own question to test a selection of chocolate and carry out a melting experiment. We used the same amount of each chocolate, to make it fair and stop watches to create a set of results. We found out that Aero melted the quickest and the children concluded this was because of the air bubbles.

We compared ice and other frozen liquids and then observed them whilst they melted, which gave us a better understanding of how different solids melt at different rates.

We tested the viscosity of different liquids by racing them. We discovered that syrup was the most viscous liquid as it was the thickest and moved the slowest.

We began our States of Matter topic by grouping and classifying a range of items into solids, liquids and gases. We examined some products physically to help our understanding.

We were lucky enough to experience a morning of outdoor learning in our woodland area with Greenwood Twiggs.

To complete our topic on Teeth and Digestion, we made a model of the digestive system from eating to excretion!

To complete our work on teeth, we made our own teeth gams based on a Snakes and Ladders idea.

We tested egg shells, to represent teeth in different liquids to see the effect of liquids on the enamel of our teeth, over a period of time.

Once we had made our teeth, we discussed the importance of looking after them. We created a test to observe over time, the effects of different popular drinks on our teeth. We’ll look at the results in a few weeks and see if this will change our drinking habits.

After studying the function of human teeth, we grouped the different types together and made our own using a plasticine jaw and polymorph teeth.

Easy art!

Yes it’s Science! We worked in pairs to create our very own ‘Scribblebot’. The children were extremely enthusiastic, asking lots of great questions and constantly improving and evaluating their designs.
