This week we created magnetic games using the knowledge we have gained during science. In partners we each designed and made the games using paper, paper clips and magnets.
We created different types of games from fishing to cops chasing grannies using our…
Class 4 creating animals to classify
Written by Evie and Maddie
In Science this week we have been looking at classifying our own made up species. We were challenged to base our imaginary animal on a normal animal with additional features. We created animals such as: dogs with rainbow spots,…
On Tuesday afternoon Class 3 was a mess, and for a very good reason! The children were using their creativity and imagination to make wonderful magnetic games!
There were 3 different types of games the children made.
1. Magnetic Fishing
To do this, they made a…

In science this week our task was to make our own magnetic compasses.
- A bar magnet
- A flat plastic lid
- A plastic bowl
- Compass template
We had to:
- Cut the compass template out and stick it on the plastic lid

On Tuesday afternoon in Science, Class 4 were set the challenge of classifying different types of sweet (this means separating them using a branching key)
The sweets involved were: Rolos, Smarties, Haribo, Liquorice Allsorts and Fruit…
Today, Class 3 pupils investigated the strength of different magnets. As a class, we brainstormed ideas as to how we would test strength and played around to see which methods would be realistic for us to carry out. We finally decided that we would test the strength of magnets…
Last week we looked at forces and how they can make an object slow down, speed up or change direction. This week we explored magnets and magnetic forces.
We learnt that magnetism is an invisible force that acts between two materials that do not have to be in direct contact. You…

This week we have being learning about forces in Science. In groups we carried out an investigation to find out how much force is needed to move a toy car on different surfaces.
Prediction: it will take more force to move on a rough surface
Pushes and Pulls
Today we started our 'Forces and Magnets’ topic by talking about different types of forces. These included:
- Magnetic force
- Air resistance
- Spring force
We discussed examples of pulling and pushing and…
Rocks and Soils
In Science this term we have been looking at 'Rocks and Soils'.
We have turned into geologists and paleontologists to find out more!
- have explored a variety of rocks and grouped them in different ways according to their observable features and attributes
