Year 3 have enjoyed testing a variety of materials with a torch and a reflection tester to see which ones are reflective. They then listed them in order of most reflective to least reflective.
Light and dark
Our new topic in Science is light and dark. We worked in groups to create a mind map of what we already know and what we would like to know about. We then grouped light sources and non light sources before putting our hands in a feely bag to guess what objects were in there. We soon learnt that it…
Year 3 and 4 have been learning how the digestive system works. We conducted an experiment to learn where food goes after entering the mouth.
Seasons and Celebrations!

The bones in our body
We labelled the bones in a human skeleton before working independently to label our own skeleton.
Science in Year 5/6
In our Science topic of Properties and changes of materials, our first lesson was to work in groups testing the properties of a variety of different materials. We looked at whether they were magnetic, flexible, transparent, hard and permeable. The materials we tested ranged from wooden spoons and…
We learnt about classification keys. We understand that a classification key can be used to separate living things into groups.
In science this week, we have been using classification keys to answer questions and identify invertebrate. We had a fantastic time going on an invertebrate hunt, and used our magnifying glasses to study the invertebrate we found including: ants, beetles, spiders, earwigs, ladybirds, slugs, snails…
Today we released our butterflies. We have enjoyed learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and watching this happen within the classroom.
Animals UK visit Year 3/4!
What a brilliant way to kick start our next Science Topic!
This afternoon we were visited by Laura from Animals UK. She introduced us to her millipede Wiggly Woo, Charlotte the tarantula, a Burmese python and Scout the meerkat! Laura told us so many interesting facts and we were able to look at…
Animals UK Visit
What a fantastic way to finish off our Minibeasts topic! Laura from Animals UK introduced us to some of her creepy crawly friends including an African millipede, a stick insect and Charlotte the tarantula. Laura told us lots of interesting facts about the animals and we also got to look at them…
After reading Yucky Worms! By Vivian French, we made our own wormery. We had great fun and we are enjoying watching them work.
