Science

We’ve had fantastic fun carrying on our allotments in science this term as we planted our spring bulbs. We are working scientifically all year.

We’ve been exploring everyday materials and testing the hypothesis ‘No hard materials are absorbent’. We found out that actually this hypothesis was incorrect and so were some of our predictions. 

We had so much fun in science yesterday as we tested the rigidity of materials by twisting bending and stretching them. We then tested the best materials to make bridges and tried to see which material could withstand the biggest weight.

We’ve been exploring and classifying in science as we look at animals including humans. First we looked at how we’ve changed from being young and how animals do the same. 

We’ve still been observing our plants over a period of time and watching them grow in different  seasons.

Some of our children have been becoming scientists for their homework and researching and then creating blueprints for Victorian inventions.

We’ve been looking at the importance of exercise to keep healthy and the affect it has on our bodies.

We’ve loved investigating our handspans and the growth of these compared to other objects.

We had a fabulous morning being little scientists as our visitor taught us the huge importance of trees. We adopted a tree and created tree rubbings alongside learning about different trees and seed dispersal. Thank you Mr Collins what fun we had.

All of the litter that we’ve been collecting this week we’ve cleverly recycled them into our own cute and quirky “Litter Bugs”.
