Our Science topic this term is called Plants in Action. Several weeks ago everyone placed two seeds in a plastic bag with a damp cloth. The plastic bags were then hung against the window so they could receive sunlight. This task helped us see what the first stage of plant growth is which is called… Read More It’s a Plants Life!
Why do balls roll? Why do apples fall from the trees? Why do some things slide across ice but not on carpet? What makes our bikes stop when we brake? We use all types of forces including friction, gravity and pushes and pulls when we exercise, ride bikes and drive cars. Engineers and Scientists use… Read More Smooth Moves
During the final weeks of this term we looked closely on the relationships between the Sun, Earth and Moon. Firstly we undertook a role play where 1 student was playing the Sun and stood still shining brightly with a torch whilst another student was Earth and orbited the Sun whilst spinning. This helped us see how day… Read More In a Spin with the Earth, Sun and Moon
To complete our unit on Spinning in Space our class spent a month studying the Moon and its phases. The Moon The Moon was probably made 4.5 billion years ago when a large object hit the Earth and blasted out rocks that came together to orbit round the Earth. They eventually melted together, cooled down… Read More Moon Phases
Last term a lot of students asked Mrs Baldwin if our next Science topic could be about Space. Their wish was granted because this term we will be learning about the Solar System. We will be looking at the relationship between the Sun, Earth and Moon, we will also look closely at the moon and… Read More Spinning in Space
This Term we have been learning about Plant life and the different stages of the plant life cycle. Last week we participated in an investigation which involved us looking closely at a flower and its parts. We worked in groups with each group sharing a flower each. Firstly we had to draw the flower as… Read More Why are flowers important?
This term our Science topic is “Plants in Action”. In this unit students will have their beliefs about flowering plants challenged by working through hands-on activities. Students will develop a sense of wonder and appreciation of plants as we investigate the following: germination the stages in a plant’s life cycle what plants need for growth Today… Read More Are Seeds Alive?
