Intent and Implementation
Science Progression Plan
Wheat class have been looking at how the sun can create silhouettes in the summer time.
5th May - Year Five enjoyed pond dipping and using identification charts to find out what they’d caught.
Maize Class - Which material would work best for an Explorers Coat? The children investigated which materials were waterproof and therefore, suitable for an explorers coat. Here the children observed whether each material absorbed the water or didn’t let it pass through.
Science Week in Maize Class - the children have enjoyed taking part in a variety of Science Experiments this week! Here are photo’s of the children making rainbows using paper towels, water and felt tips, and making fizzy dinosaur eggs using baking soda. Which we froze overnight, then the next day the children used white vinegar to rescue their Dinobabies.
Science Week in Oats Class. We found out about magnets and made out own magnetic games.
Science week! this week we have been looking at seasons and how to measure weather. We created our own rain gauges to help us measure the amount of rain.
Alice from Fizz Pop Science delivered a super exciting assembly which taught the children about the different ways air moves.
Maize class investigating the effect of air.
Hops FizzPop Science Workshop
Fizz Pop Science in Oats
Fizz Pop - Wheat
Wheat class enjoyed watching Alice make smoke rings with her air cannon this morning.
Fizz Pop- Wheat
we enjoyed watching Alice from Pop Fizz Science showing us how to make paper spin in air.
Fizz Pop- Wheat
After watching Alice, Wheat class had a go at making some.
Maize class have been reading ‘The Three Little Pigs’. The children became very intrigued by the effect of the woof’s huffing and puffing on the different materials. This lead to us investigating which materials could be moved by the wind created from children's own huff and puffing, compared to which material could be moved by the wind created by a hair dryer. The following week we took the learning further and the children attempted to build their own houses out of cocktail sticks and sweets, to find out if a more structure model would withstand the wind better or worse.
The Life Cycle of a Butterfly
Maize class have been reading the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and learning all about the different stages of the Life Cycle of a Butterfly. Here the children are showing each of the different stages.
Oats Class investigated how absorbent some everyday materials were. We thought about why some materials needed to be absorbent.
