Science Learning

This afternoon, we have created a scale model of the solar system. Mercury was a peppercorn, Jupiter was a watermelon and we learnt that Neptune (lime) was a long LONG way from our sun.

Today, LKS2 have had a Science day. During one of our sessions, we looked at seed dispersal. To begin with, we discussed what seed dispersal is and why plants need to disperse their seeds.

Falcons took part in a live science lesson today.  We learnt all about carrots and how important a functioning ecosystem is for things to grow (including the “ewww, creepy” nematodes).

Today, Woodpeckers have spent the afternoon creating dichotomous keys, using liquorice allsorts, for their new science topic: Living Things and their Habitats. To begin with, we discussed what a dichotomous key is and if we had ever seen or used one before. Then, we looked at some examples that classified fruit, sweets and animals. As …

Below are just a few snaps of what Woodpeckers and Red Kites have been getting up to in their recent science topics: Light and Electricity.

Red Kites and Woodpeckers have been investigating shadows and silhouettes. Have a look at the pics below.

The focus at the moment in science for Doves is forces and on Thursday that entailed conducting an experiment into water resistance. The challenge was to test the impact three different shapes moulded out of blue tack made on the time to travel from the top to the bottom of a container full of water. …

Woodpeckers spent the morning creating miniature water cycles. Have a look at their fantastic efforts below.
