Year 3 Science Week, George's Marvellous Medicine - June 2018
In Science Week Year Three had great fun as scientists trying to make marvellous medicines for George.
We used acids and alkalis like vinegar and lemon juice and bicarb to explore chemical reactions. We explored solids and liquids using cornflour and we made exploding volcanoes! We love science!
Year 3 and 4 Hobbit Challenge - March 2018
The children engaged fantastically with their scientific, Hobbit based challenge. Imagine the surprise on Bilbo’s face when he realised his magical ring had been stolen and the only suspects were his supposed friends! However, I don’t suspect the thief had any idea hat Year 3/4 were experts on chromatography and could decipher who’s pen had be used to write the note they left behind.
After much testing, the pupils were able to identify the culprit!
I’m sure Bilbo will be forever thankful.
KS1 Science - December 2017
KS1 have been developing their Scientific Enquiry skills by investigating – What makes a shadow? Firstly the children discovered how shadows where made by thinking about the sun and objects in the lights path. Next they made close observations at different times of the day and chalked on the pavement their findings.
By the end of the day the children identified the movement of their shadows and discussed reasons why this happens. After researching information the children found out that the movement of the earth changes the position of the sun and therefore the shadow.
