Tuesday 3rd November
The children had another scientific afternoon using their knowledge and skills to conduct a simple experiment. We decided to test what it would be like without our sense of sight by building a tower blindfolded. The children made a scientific prediction, predicting how many blocks high they think they could build a tower. Then we conducted our experiment and recorded our score, finally we collected our data and discuss the findings, like true scientists.
Welcome back and just look at the amazing home learning projects the children have produced at home! The children have without doubt being using the skills and knowledge they have acquired last term to use a range of materials to design and make floral artwork.

The children have been gaining new and fascinating knowledge today during science. The children have been learning that results are information that has been found out from an investigation. We decided to investigate holes, tunnels and tree stumps using torches to find any woodland creatures that we predicted might be hiding there.
