Digestive system experiment - Barley family learning

Barley creating circuits

Barley Autumn Term 1 experiments

Invertebrate hunting in the forest school area

Year 5 have enjoyed learning about parts of the flower!

Year 6 have been learning about fossils; using play-doh to recreate their own!

Wheat: exploring the school grounds looking at what plants grow.

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.

Fizz Pop Science visit Maize Class! Today the children enjoyed their ‘Airmazing’ visit from Astro Alice. The children learnt lots about all the different interesting things air can do!

After watching Alice, Wheat class had a go at making some.

Pop Fizz came to see Wheat class and we learnt about Air.

Everyday Materials

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.

Wheat class looked at everyday materials to see if they were waterproof, absorbent or neither.

Oats Class investigated how absorbent some everyday materials were. We thought about why some materials needed to be absorbent. 

Habitat hunting and sorting living things in Oats Class.

Wheat class will observe and draw the apple tree outside of their classroom to notice the changes through the seasons.

In Wheat Class, Mr White took the class around the woodland area so they could learn to identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including trees. They also learned which plants could be harvested e.g. elderflower.

In Hops Class, we used different materials to test filtration. We found that stones did not work as well as sand due to it being a larger material, therefore room for dirty water to filter through.

In Hops Class the children took cuttings from various parts of the plant to see which grow.

Barley Class's Science topic this term is electricity. They have been sorting appliances into a Venn diagram to compare which are powered by electric or batteries. From this research, they made a simple series circuit using a battery and buzzer.

Maize class ended the Spring term by planting their very own bean. They then took their bean home and took great care of it. Here you can see the children have been observing their bean change and measuring its growth.
