We have created our own 'Sound Wave Machine' to demonstrate how sound travels in waves. The children explored how the waves change when you tap the jelly baby with different strengths.
Today all the children were WOWed by our MADScience Assembly. The children explored SOUND in a variety of fun and exciting ways.
Please keep an eye out for a leaflet about the MAD Science after school club in the next few weeks.
It's been a busy Science day today starting off with an amazing Science assembly in the hall with the whole school. We hope the children were inspired to become a scientist. In Year 1 we continued to explore materials and their properties. We found out which materials were absorbent.
KNOWLEDGE: We have associated the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit.
SKILLS: We used recognised symbols to draw a simple circuit in a diagram.
VOCABULARY: component, cell, battery, circuit, resistor, switch, buzzer,…
Year 2 have been exploring different habitats, following their trip to Chester Zoo.
Knowledge: Identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants, and how they depend…
Year 1 really enjoyed their visit to Chester Zoo. We have been learning about Antarctica and studying facts about penguins.
It was a very cold and snowy day at the zoo. The children and staff felt like we were actually in Antarctica!
Year 2 spent a very chilly but fun day exploring animal habitats at Chester Zoo.
Knowledge: I can identify that most living things live in habitat to which they are suited.
Skills: I can describe some of the world's habitats.
Vocab: grasslands, desert, rainforest, polar,…
In science today, year 5 explored what irreversible change would happen when an acid (vinegar) and alkali (bicarbonate of soda) were mixed together.
We had a method to follow, we were asked what caused the bag would inflate, and what would happen if we changed the size of the bag.
