Spring 1

This term we are learning all about the states of matter.

Turning a liquid into a solid


We loved our science lesson today.  We had lots of fun making ice cream by turning a liquid (cream) into a solid.

Investigating gases


Today the children at home and at school compared different drinks to see how much carbon dioxide was in each of them.  

Is it a solid or a liquid?

Our topic in Autumn 2 is animals including humans


Year 5 and 6


We have lots of fun this afternoon creating a model of a moving arm.  

Year 3 and 4


The children in Year 3 and 4 have been learning all about the human skeleton.  After learning about the skeleton we made 'human puppets'.

Year 5 and 6


Year 5 and 6 have been using their comparative skills to compare the size of bones in their class.

Year 3 and 4 accurately measured their bodies to see if there was a pattern between each measurement and the height of each child.
Our topic this half term is

Isaac Newton


We have made some fantastic double page spreads all about Isaac Newton.

Monday 12th October
This week we set up our own experiments and made observations to see if a magnetic force would work through different liquids.

Year 5 and 6


We have been investigating levers, pulleys and gears.

Monday 5th October
This week Year 3 and 4 explored the poles and recorded what happened for the magnets to attract and repel each other.  The children then made their own magnet slings to use a compass to find the treasure around the classroom.
Year 5 and 6 conducted a group investigation this week on water resistance.  They created different shaped boats to see how easily (or not) the boats could sail across the water.  The children made observations using fresh and salted water.

Monday 21st September


Year 5 and 6 have been investigating air resistance this afternoon.  They set up a fair test to investigate the best material for a parachute.

Are all coins magnetic?  This is the enquiry question year 3 and 4 were answering today.

Monday 14th September


The children in year 3 and 4 have been investigating whether the size of a magnet effects its strength.

The Class 3 Seasonsill


We have a windowsill in our classroom that reflects the season we are in. It is Autumn now. Our windowsill has lots of examples of seeds and even a huge fruit! Can you spot it? Harry had great fun scoooping out the seeds and estimating how many were inside!
