As a reward to celebrate the outstanding result we got for our recent Ofsted inspection the children were treated to two science shows from Fizz Pop Science. Both shows were great fun and also taught us a lot about Science. The first one focused on friction. Through a wide range of experiments we found that … Continue reading
Yr.6 revised the work they did on magnets in yr.3. They looked at the difference between magnets and magnetic materials, like and unlike poles and attraction and repulsion. They then designed and carried out an investigation to test the strength of magnets. They concluded that this wasn’t influenced by their shape or their size.
This term we have been learning about the weather and the seasons. We have been measuring the temperature, rainfall and wind each day and comparing them to other parts of the British Isles. To help us understand about these things we designed and made or own wind sock to inform us which way the wind … Continue reading
Today in Science Yr 4 were filtering different solid substances after mixing them with water. We filtered soil, sand, salt and sugar to see if we could get it back out of the water and leave the water back as it started.
Yr.6 looked at filtering, firstly they separated sand and water using filter paper, they then tried to do the same with a salt water solution but found that the dissolved particles were so small they went through the miniscule holes in the filter paper.
