Enrichment Friday - Year 2

This afternoon we learnt all about why Red Nose Day is so important, then we designed our own silly Red Nosed faces!
 

 



Science Week

With Boffin Dave the children recreated the orbits of the planets around the sun and then created their own bubble universes.  They also learnt how centripetal forces can be used to contain water in a rotating bucket and how air pressure can be manipulated. 

In class Year 6 carried out experiments to see if light bulbs would change their output according to the length of wires used to create a circuit.

Year 5 looked at irreversible changes as they baked Mug Cakes

Year 4 carried out an investigation to identify if releasing the gases from fizzy drinks would change the weight of the liquid.

Year 3 made plants to identify the key features and represent how water is transported to the leaves and flower. They also investigated the strength of static energy to move various objects.










Science Week Year 5

Year 5 were using straws to blow bubbles to create their own solar systems.

Science Week

Science Week will begin on Monday 11th March.
This year’s theme is ‘Journeys’ encouraging children to think about the different scientific journeys that happen every day and how they can discover science through their own lives and experiences. It is also a chance for children to consider how journeys can help us experience more of the world around us. 

Enrichment Friday - Year 2

Today for enrichment the children learnt about International Women’s Day. They wrote about an inspirational woman in their lives and drew lovely pictures of them!
