Dream Believe Achieve

Science

Term 6 - Working Scientifically! 
 

This term we will be exploring a variety of investigations. We will be writing predictions, recording our results and writing scientific conclusions. We will think carefully about fair tests and what this means. 

Do all balls bounce? In Leeds class, we tested four different balls made of different materials. We used our careful observational skills to see which ball bounced the highest. We recorded this into a table and wrote a conclusion to explain what we found out.

Science Week 10-14th May 2021 

Innovating for the Future

The theme for British Science Week 2021 is ‘Innovating for the Future’.​

This theme encourages us to think about the incredible inventions that people have made in the past which can inspire young people everywhere to innovate for the future!

The children are doing lots of exciting science throughout the week and you can find photos or what we go up to here!

Sniffily Sneezes! 

In the experiment we are testing materials to find which would make the best hankie

In Leeds class, we made sure it was a fair test by adding the same amount of water to each different material. We discussed and decided which was the best for a hankie and why.

Speedy Scooters!

We are going to investigate which surface is the best to ride on using a scooter. 

Leeds class investigating which surface was the best to ride a scooter on.

Rochester Class

Herd Immunity Jenga

In this investigation we use Jenga and stickers to understand how we can prevent viruses spreading and about our incredible immune systems. 

 

Rochester Class

Does the Appearance of Food Affect its Taste?

 

In this investigation we are discovering whether the taste of food is changed by the way it appears, we also looked at regular and irregular fruits and veg.  We were surprised by what we found out!

In Leeds class, we tasted the different foods and wrote down our thinking. We had to think about it’s appearance, texture and look to see if it affected the taste of the different foods. Take a look at our brilliant learning!

Who Invented Blue

In this investigation we explored natural materials in order to understand how they can be used to make paint and discovered what happened when you grind different materials.

Living things and their Habitats.


This term, we have been exploring a variety of different habitats found in the world and the sort of animals, creatures and plants you would find there. We have explored how suitable animals are to their habitat and how they survive.

 

Take a look at our wonderful learning!

Leeds class - Our Science display, to show off our amazing learning this term!

In Leeds class we have been working together to sort animals into the correct habitats.

Everyday Material

 

The children have started Year Two with the science topic;Everyday Materials. We have been learning all about materials' properties, using scientific language and experiments to discover more about the amazing world around us!

Which material is the most suitable for a toy car ramp? In Leeds class, we have been investigating different materials: paper, wood, fabric and metal. We had a ramp covered in each material and tested which material would allow the car to travel the furthest. Take a look at our wonderful learning!

Which materials float? In Leeds class, we have been exploring different materials and investigating if it sinks or floats. We worked in groups to test this. Take a look at our wonderful learning...

Which is the strongest paper? In Leeds class, across this term, we have been focusing on different ‘Materials’. Today we began our investigation looking at different types of paper and finding out which one is the strongest. We wrote a prediction and filled in a results table after we carried out the investigation; Take a look at our brilliant learning...

In Leeds class, we have been busy with our Science topic 'Materials'. We have been discussing the materials we know and thinking about their properties and textures. In addition, we went looking for different objects and matching them to their material.

Rochester class have really enjoyed their science over the last term or so, Everyday Materials.

 

We have been learning about materials' properties and classifying them. 

 

We have really enjoyed our experiments, such as, learning about friction with car ramps covered in different materials and which materials react in different ways in water.
