Today we were looking at our solar system and the planets that reside in it. We discussed how far the planets were away from the sun and the distance between the them. We also investigated the sizes of these planets in relation to the sun. Our activity was to attempt to recreate the distances from … Continue reading
Lots of children at St Eanswythe’s School say science is their favourite subject. Some of these photos show why – the awe and wonder that science develops is just brilliant! We have some super scientists in our midst!
During our Science lesson a breaking news message suddenly displayed on the board! The message asked the children of Owls class to investigate a crash site on the playground immediately. The children were very eager to go and investigate! We kept a close eye out for any clues and evidence left behind. We found a … Continue reading
Last term Eagles were invited to some Bushcraft sessions at Christchurch Primary School. As you can see from the photos the children enjoyed all the different activities and challenges that were presented to them. We went in groups of 8 each week. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t kind to us on one of the days and … Continue reading
Yr.6 have been looking at lifecycles in Science. They have been incubating eggs and have three chicks and two ducklings in their class this week. They had a great time holding them and letting them explore the classroom!
This morning Yr.6 looked at why we have two eyes and how this affects our depth perception by trying to drop a coin into a cup with one eye covered. We also looked through kaleidoscopes and decided how they made and made our own. The reflections were amazing. Finally, using water we bent light making … Continue reading
Yr.6 were looking at light last week. They measure the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection from torches using mirrors. They then split light into all the colours of the spectrum by making a spectroscope and using prisms.
In science this morning Yr.6 looked at reflecting light. They used mirrors and torches to bend light around corners, used periscopes and then created a path for light to travel through a shoe box using mirrors to reflect it many times.
Today in science Year 4 tested to see which would melt quickest two giant chocolate buttons or a much larger ice cube. The children really enjoyed using a large tealight candle as a heat source and were amazed to see the different outcomes. The ice melted more slowly compared to the chocolate that started to … Continue reading
Our topic this term is LIGHT and we have been investigating reflective materials. Our aim was to predict which material would reflect light the best and then carry out the investigation to see if we were right! We made a ‘light reflector’ using a torch and cardboard, which worked quite well. We had to … Continue reading
