2017 - 2018

2016-2017

Classes 3, 4, 5 and 6 have been exploring their senses. We smelled and tasted a variety of foods and some tasted nicer than others!

2015-2016

Class 8 have been making circuits!

We are taking part in a nationwide rocket seed experiment and class 6 were responsible for planting 200 individual rocket seeds! 100 of the seeds have been in the ISS with Tim Peake and 100 haven't. Now we have to see how they grow!

Today the science lab opened in Class 2! There were 25 scientists that all designed and created potions! They had lots of fun and there will be more experiments! 

This afternoon, Class 2 have re-read the story of "The Gingerbread Man". We have decided to do an experiment to see what would have happened if the "Gingerbread Man' had gone in the water! We then wrote predictions of what the children thought would happen! After 6 minutes of being in the water we looked what had happened. The children then in turned describe what they saw. They then were given a challenge to write what had happened to the “Gingerbread Man”. 

Class 4 and 6 did some investigations about the properties of water. Their challenge was to make a hole in a block of ice to free a penguin caught inside.

Class 8 have been modelling the digestive system!

Class 8 have been making our own toothpaste! We had great fun!

Class 6 made habitats for an animal found locally. When we went back inside we discussed how the animals live in the environment and decided how we could make the habitats better.

Class 8 are completing an investigation on how different liquids can effect our teeth.

Class 8 had an amazing morning learning about Space! We talked to British astronaut TIm Peake by satellite! Wow!

Classes 3, 4 and 5 have had some unusual fairy tale visitors during our science lessons and have helped create absorbent mops, decided on the best bubble solution and discovered a range of waterproof and transparent materials!

Classes 3, 4 and 5 were asked the question: 'Why can you see light and dark patches on the moon?' We used drinking chocolate and flour to create the moon's surface. The children then dropped different objects into it, to act as meteors. We found out from the drinking chocolate that the dark patches are craters.

Class 6 and 7 have been learning about the digestive system. We came together to conduct a whole class investigation to see the journey of our food and to find out what happens to the food our body doesn't need!

 

We put food into our mouth
Our teeth break up the food into smaller parts
Saliva from our mouth allows the food to soften
The food is now soft and small enough to swallow
Our food then travels down our oesophagus
Our food then goes into our stomach
The stomach churns the food
Enzymes break down the protein
Acid kills the bacteria
Bile is produced by the liver
The stomach breaks down all our food.
The food then enters the small intestine
The small intestine absorbs the foods nutrients
The nutrients go into our bloodstream
The food then enters the large intestine
This is the waste our body doesn't need!

Class 3 went on a senses walk!

The wind blew the trees and we felt it on our face
We saw beautiful berries
As we walked we heard the leaves crunch
We felt prickly beech nuts

Classes 3, 4 and 5 planted strawberries.

Class 3 sorted food and drink into groups.
