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.
This morning, it was Woodpeckers turn to step into the weird and wonderful world of non-Newtonian fluids. Have a look at the pictures below.
This morning, Red Kites stepped into the weird and wonderful world of non-Newtonian fluids. We learnt how, when force is applied, the fluid behaves like a solid! Have a look at the pictures below.
Red Kites spent the morning learning how to recreate the water cycle with a few simple pieces of equipment.
This week, as part of our topic we have planted some Broad Beans. We observed the different sizes and described how they felt. We then talked about what plants need to help them grow. We are going to take very good care of them and watch to see all the changes that take place. We …
Kingfishers inserted different materials into a circuit to see whether they conducted electricity and lit a bulb. We found that some were insulators and some were conductors (not the bus kind).
This morning, Red Kites began their investigation into the thickness (or viscosity) of different liquids. Check out the results below.
