Spring Term 2022-2023
Reception have been learning about people who help us in the community such as, nurses, police officers, firefighters and dentists. They had visits from a nurse who told them how to stay healthy by exercising, eating healthy foods and being safe. The children named healthy foods and about the role of a nurse. They talked about parts of our body and had a go at creating X-ray pictures showing the bones in their hands. They also learnt about looking after their teeth, how often they need to clean them and what will happen if they don’t look after them.
In the Autumn term, Year 1 were looking at the unit 'Animals Including Humans' and were working towards answering the big question, 'Why do elephants have such big ears?'
In Autumn 1, Year 3 were working on the unit'Animals Including Humans' and are working to answer the big question, 'What's under my skin?'
In the Autumn term, Year 5 were looking at the unit 'Properties and Changing Materials' and were working towards answering the big question, 'Are all changes reversible?'
During the Spring term in Year 2, we have been focusing on materials and trying to solve the big question of 'Can a school reduce single use plastic?' To help us answer this, we have been learning about lots of different everyday materials to work out which one absorbs the most water. We decided to do this because we wanted to see if we could use a different material for our water bottles other than plastic. In our science experiment today, we have tested a stone, tin foil and a cotton wool pad to see which one absorbed the most water. See some pictures of our fantastic experiment.
In term Autumn 1, Year 4 were looking at the unit 'Electricity' and working towards answering the big question, 'What is a circuit?'
In the Spring term, Year 6 have been working extremely hard in science learning all about 'Evolution and Inheritance'. They learnt a great deal about scientist Charles Darwin, and his famous 5 year expedition on HMS Beagle to the Galapagos Islands, where he studied the evolution of finch birds. Year 6 in their science lesson, investigated his theory of 'natural selection' by using a variety of objects as 'bird beaks', to see which was most effective at picking up different types of 'food'.
