As part of their work on forces Yr.6 investigated what factors affect how quickly a parachute would fall. Some groups chose to change the shape of the parachute, some the material it was made from and some the surface area. Once they had finished their investigation each group selected their best parachute to compete against … Continue reading
Yr.6 investigated how the rate of dissolving was affected by the temperature of the water. They timed how long it took sugar to dissolve in three different temperatures of water.
Class 5 have been learning about the human body in science this term. We have studied the function of the heart and how it pumps blood around the body. To help us fully understand the process, we carried out a practical activity in the playground. Using blue bean bags to represent deoxygenated blood and red … Continue reading
In Science this morning Yr.6 were looking at the force of elasticity. They started by watching videos of springboard divers, bungee jumpers and trampolinists and identified the force of elasticity involved in each of these activities. They then made these working models of these three sports for a playmobil character. Finally, they investigated Hook’s law … Continue reading
This week Owl’s made the most of the autumn sunshine and went on a nature walk. We saw lots of different leaves, conkers, mini beasts and mushrooms!
In science this week Year 4 were using a thermometer every ten minutes to measure the temperature of hot water, cold water and room temperature. We discovered that the hot water cools down and the cold water warms up over the time and that both would keep changing until they reached room temperature.
As part of their work about dissolving Yr.6 worked to separate solutions. They found that water evaporates very slowly in normal classroom conditions. Therefore to speed the process up they heated their solutions over a candle flame. This caused the water to evaporate leaving the salt crystals behind in the tray. If they held a … Continue reading
Yr.6 investigated air resistance this morning using paper sycamore seeds. They worked in pairs to decide which variable they wanted to test to find out if it affected the length of time the spinner took to fall to the ground. Some children changed the number of paper clips on the spinner, some the size of … Continue reading
This week Year 1 have been planting daffodils bulbs ready for spring. We had to dig a hole, plant the bulb with the roots pointing down then cover it with soil. We can’t wait to see them flower!
In our Science lesson today we discussed the different habitats of the creatures we might find around the world and particularly the ones that live in England. We found that we spoke the most about the larger animals and totally forgot that there are many unseen creatures that live at floor level. Therefore, we went … Continue reading
