To finish out learning about Materials class 6 had to find objects within the room with certain properties and group them together. Take a look at our teamwork and finding objects using our understanding of the vocabulary.
Summer 2 is all about summer fun in nursery! We are learning about what the sun does to our bodies and the world around us. We also are learning how to keep our bodies and plants safe in the sun.
Year 2 have been learning all about materials this term. Today we looked at different objects and had a think about how we could sort and organise them. Our ideas started with shape then colour. We then thought about the properties of the objects which ones can get wet. We then found out what it means when something is ‘natural ‘ and ‘ man/ human made’. We then sorted our objects to show this.
In Science this week class 6 went out and about to look for materials. We looked at which materials we could see on the playground, used to build our school and local houses. We spoke about which were used the most and the least. We thought about the word suitable and why certain objects are made from some materials and not others. We realised that wood and metal were used the most outside. We didn’t see anything made of fabric outside.
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
