This week in Science year 2 have been experimenting to find out what happens to certain materials in a fire. We have used our knowledge from History about The Great Fire of London to help us think about wood. Take a look at our experiment and the objects / materials after. We were very surprised that the metal part of our coat hanger survived!
Some of Year 2 have been busy helping in the garden today planting flowers and bulbs at the top of the school drive to help brighten up the entrance to school!
Summer 1 science in F1 is happening outside! The children are helping the team to plant up the muddy hill, also the house is now a bird hide. In there are adventure packs for children to look at birds, identify plants and hunt bugs. We love it.
Year 2 have been very busy being scientists during British Science Week. We have explored mixing materials and their properties by making some corn flour gloop. We investigated how to make a strong and stable structure to hold an egg and prevent it from breaking. We also had a live zoom call with a scientist from Amazelab who showed us some experiments we could do to learn about chemical reactions. We then made our own volcanos and lava lamps in the classroom using chemical reactions! Check out the photos below to see us in action!
F1 Science week! We did 4 experiments. The first looked at where cress grows best...in the sun not the cupboard! Then we looked if magic beads would grow on their own, in oil or water...it was the water. After that we looked at which makes better play dough, salt or sugar....it was salt. Finally we looked at which bubbles lasted longest little bubbles or big bubbles.
F1 Spring 2... Let the growing begin!
Year 2 today went outside today to build a microhabitat. Look at us in action. We are going to go back into the garden in the Spring term and see if anyone is living in our habitats.
In Spring 1 , year 2 have been learning about animals and their habitats. We did a mind map at the start of our topic to see what we thought we already knew. From that each week we have looked at different habitats and the animals that might live there.
In spring 1 in Nursery we have done lots of experiments with water and snow (it snowed alot). We tested out theories and tried lots of different approaches to problems we encounter.
In F2 we have been exploring the world around us. We have been thinking about what is changing outside as well as what we can see and hear and feel when we are outside.
Class 5 have been learning all about keeping healthy and designed and made our own healthy pasta salad. We really enjoyed making them...and eating them too!
In nursery we are trying to answer the question "how does it move?". We will be looking at forces push and pull but we started looking at our own body and learnt about our skeleton.
As part of our Healthy Living topic Class 6 designed a healthy pasta salad. We then had the opportunity this week to make our salads and evaluate them. Take a look at us in action.
Class 4 children have been sorting materials
