Designing and Making a Safari
Today we designed our own animal safari park as part of our animal topic. We started by designing it on paper and then built it using various different resources, including wooden blocks, lego, stickle bricks and cardboard. We thought hard about how to make our…
There was much excitement in Class 4 this afternoon as we finally got to taste our school-made butter! After investing our time in 'churning' and ' refrigerating' our very own butter the time for taste had arrived!
Take a look at the facial expressions throughout the…
Vicious Vikings…or were they?
In our Science lesson this week, we were required to help prove a scientist’s belief that the Vikings have been misunderstood and misrepresented as a primitive civilisation.
We examined how the Vikings used science to make food much more edible, nutritious and…
Reversible/Irreversible changes and Soda Bread!
Class 4 have been at it again. As scientists, we have been investigating what happens to objects when they are heated. We looked at the following objects and described what would happen to each if it was heated and cooled, and whether or not…
Irreversible Changes and Chemical Reactions
Today we were investigating some irreversible changes by mixing different materials together. We created different mixtures and observed what happened as a chemical reaction took place and a new product was made.
We mixed together: vinegar and…
This week, Class 4 have been investigating different ways of separating materials. Take a closer look at our experiments. We used a sieve, colander, garden sieve, magnets, funnel and filter paper. We also recognised that certain solids (soluble) would require…
Class 4 have been investigating dissolving and last week, completed an experiment to discover which solids dissolve when mixed with a liquid. They planned, prepared and predicted before conducting the experiment and finding a conclusion. The children had lots of fun in the…
Mirrors and Reflections
Today, in Science, we looked at reflections! Together we investigated reflective surfaces, how reflections work and the scientific processes involved by taking part in three different challenges:
In pairs, we wrote secret messages to one another by…
Abstract Space Art
We have finished our space masterpieces this week where we have added the final touches to our abstract art designs! Please come in and have a closer look at our 'space gallery' in the Key Stage 2 cloakroom!
Take a closer look at our photos in our photo…
More 'out of this world' homework
The creations from this weeks Science homework were too good not to share. Take a look at our fabulous 3d models of the solar system and some more delicious baking of space cookies! We can't wait to see what next week brings.
Wonderful Class 4 Homework
Class 4 have amazed us with their wonderful start to homework this week. As an optional task, we have been investigating all things 'Space'.
Take a look at some of our fabulous (and delicious) creations so far!
States of Matter
Today we launched our 'States of Matter' topic in Science. There are 3 states of matter we have been learning about:
Materials in a solid state keep their shape unless a force is applied to them.
Solids can be cut, squashed or twisted. They will not change shape…
