Reception are on countdown to the Rainbow Party. Today we made jelly using our senses to describe the jelly, talked about changes & thought about why the changes were happening. We can't wait to make more rainbow treats!
Year 4 had a wonderful time experimenting with electric circuits this afternoon! We tested the conductivity of different items inside the classroom and looked back at our initial predictions.
Year 5 have had an excellent afternoon investigating, ‘Why do planets have craters?’ They weighted different size objects and then measured the width and depth of the crater formed in the trays!
Reception B got a reply from Rainbow Town! The King & Queen thought our party plans were FANTASTIC! They sent us some magic beads in our water tray & some sweets and instructions to follow to make a rainbow! We talked about how the beads felt & made predictions about how we could make a rainbow with water & sweets!
Year 5 were looking at the importance of insulation in space so they looked at how different materials affected the rate at which the boiling water cooled.
Years 1 and 2 performed a simple investigation today. They looked at different soap products and made predictions for which one would produce the most bubbles! A fab afternoon of investigation and working together.
Year 3 spent this afternoon looking at how different surfaces can affect the distance a car travels down a ramp. They had to think about how #friction and air resistance caused the car to travel shorter distances!
Year 6 completed a Science investigation with force meters to help understand the difference between weight and mass. They then used this information to work out how many Newtons pulled on an object to show how gravity worked
This afternoon Year 3 examined coins which had been previously soaked in different solutions, (water, cola, ketchup, lemon juice & vinegar. We compared them to their pre-soaked state and discussed the process of oxidation.
Last week Year 3 had a great day and used force meters to explore how levers can be used to lift heavier objects with little effort!
Year 3 had a very fun afternoon investigating #spinners and looking at #inertia for their #MightyMetals project. They understood that an object will not move unless there is a pushing or pulling force applied.
Year 3 and 4 had an amazing time at the local park yesterday! They looked at: forces used when playing parachute games; using a compass to follow directions and exploring how forces are used in the park apparatus!
Reception found a creature in the cupboard who was scared & lost! The message asked us to camouflage it to keep it safe. So we found materials to match his body & talked about why we couldn't use some of them.
