Science

As part of Year 4's science electricity topic this half term, we have started to investigate static electricity and circuits. We were given wires, batteries and bulbs . We had to first make a working circuit with one bulb and then investigated how many bulbs we could get to work using one battery. Next lesson we will be investigating conductors and insulators using a variety of products including vegetables.

Science investigations in 2HL today really captured the children's interests, investigating the most suitable material to build a roof for teddy's house.

Some children from Mrs Oakes' class have been busy gardening. Mrs Oakes has asked them to monitor the bulbs and to give regular updates to her and the rest of the class throughout the coming weeks.

Year 5 have been busy investigating if some materials will dissolve in water to form a solution.

Learning Through Song

Still image for this video
The reception children have been learning a song all about space and developing their knowledge of our solar system.

The reception children loved exploring the new classroom environment today. They have met aliens, been astronauts in space and super scientists exploring moon rocks!

A new learning environment for our Reception children has appeared after the holiday..... We are excited to see the children’s faces and wonder what learning adventures “SPACE” will take them on!!

This week, the 'Story of the Week' in Reception is Leaf Man. The children have enjoyed an 'Autumn Walk' around our school grounds today talking and looking at the changes Autumn brings. They also collected lots of leaves to make their own leaf man!

In Science, 3MF have been finding the differences between the teeth of herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. They sorted skulls using their observation skills. They then used their observation skills to sketch the different skulls

Year 1 had a wonderful time concluding our science learning about plants by being able to complete a tree hunt in our school grounds. We now know what an evergreen and a deciduous tree is and what their special features are!

1FL visited our local garden centre today to see if we could recognise common plants that we have been learning about. We saw rosies, pansies and even saw an apple tree!
