Trip to Maritime Museum and Greenwich Observatory

By | June 26th, 2019|Science, Year 6 2018-19|

Today year 6 spent the day exploring the galleries at the National Maritime Museum and the Greenwich Observatory. Everyone had such a lovely day out and loved learning interesting facts about our naval history and our solar system.

After exploring the galleries we relaxed for a while in the beautiful surroundings of  Greenwich park, where we […]

Planet Earth and Space Science Talk!

By | May 24th, 2019|Science, Year 3/4 2018-19|

Today year 3/4 were lucky enough to have a visit from Liz, a geologist, who came to talk to us all about planet Earth and space. We were all particularly fascinated with volcanoes and watching volcanoes erupt. We came up with some amazing questions to ask and therefore learnt so much.

Egg Drop!

By | May 24th, 2019|Science, Year 1 2018-19|

After reading Egg Drop this week, today in science we decided to build our own egg protectors. We chose soft materials to protect our eggs from breaking when dropped and some of us made parachutes to help break the fall. We made predictions on whether they would break or not and then tested our protectors […]

Air Resistance Investigations

By | February 8th, 2019|Outdoor Learning, Science, Year 5 2018-19|

Year 5 have had a lot of fun testing out their thinking and understanding about air resistance.  They completed well developed plans and recorded their data accurately on a table.  The children used timers, measuring wheels and tested re-tested to ensure the whole process was fair.  It was exhausting for the testers however we can let you […]

Planning a Scientific Investigation

By | December 6th, 2018|Science, Year 3/4 2018-19|

Our Science topic is Forces. 

On Monday, we were introduced to the word ‘forces’ and made predictions about what it meant. We heard all sorts of responses – from being to do with soldiers, to a type of yoghurt…!

We then learnt that a force was a push or pull to make things move.

We explored forces in the […]

Reversible and irreversible changes

By | November 6th, 2018|Science, Year 5 2018-19|

Today the year 5 scientists created an experiment based on their thinking about reversible and irreversible changes. Although they have just begun this subject, year 5 already had some good ideas about the changes that might occur.  They had 4 substances including oil, water, vinegar and bicarbonate of soda and had to devise an experiment […]
