Eagle Scientists

As a class we have been comparing difference materials. We carried out a scientific experiment to investigate which materials would be suitable for creating a water proof garment. Taking turns, we shared our ideas and understanding of the different materials and whether they would be absorbent and used a pipet to gently drop water on Continue reading

Burning Materials In Science

This week Year 5 had a fun morning experimenting with burning materials in science.  To begin with, we looked at the fire triangle and understood that all three components had to be present to create fire; if one component was removed, the triangle was broken therefore extinguishing the fire.   The children had an array of Continue reading

Year 4 science

In science we have been learning about the different states of matter (solid, liquid and gas). In today’s lesson the children had to predict whether a solid and liquid could produce a gas. Here are the results. 

Healthy Eating

This week Year 3 have been thinking about what humans and animals need to survive. We have also been comparing the diet of animals and humans and we now know that we each need different levels of nutrition and therefore our diets are different. We then thought about what a human healthy diet looks like Continue reading

Absorbent Materials

In Science the children tested out the absorbency of five different tissues. They used special equipment consisting of plastic cups, rubber bands and pipettes! In pairs they tested the absorbency by seeing if the tissue could hold 20 drops of water, if it did they gave it a big tick!

Waterproof Materials in Year 1

This week in Science we have been learning about waterproof and non-waterproof materials. Owls needed to help daddy bear get across the river to his family by finding out which materials are waterproof. Before they began their investigation, they each predicted which material they thought would be the best and which would be the the Continue reading

Soil Investigations

This afternoon, in Year 3, we were busy being soil detectives. We had three different soil samples that we had to look at and see what the soil was made up of. We found things like: twigs, leaves, conker shells, stones, worms, centipedes, slugs, roots, plants, seeds and bark. We spoke about how soil is Continue reading
