Our Y6 children have been reflecting on their science teaching and learning this year.

This is what they said they enjoyed:

  • Designing and making periscopes — with cross curricular links to art, maths, history, DT and literacy — light
  • Shadow puppets — light
  • Making an alarmed box — electricity
  • Heart dissection / making blood smoothies — heart and circulatory system
  • Eggsperiments — osmosis — heart and circulatory system
  • Skittles diffusion — heart and circulatory system

This is what they said about why they enjoyed their science

  • fun
  • practical
  • experts came in to teach them and they went to work with experts
  • independent thinking
  • interesting experiments
  • group working
  • freedom to explore and discover
  • resilience and positive thinking
  • higher level activities.

    A huge thank you to Mrs Clarke for organising and delivering science of such high interest and quality.

    What a lot of space-tastic fun we have had this week! I can't quite believe how much we have done. We have been busy making space robots and spaceships — we also made a space caravan would you believe! The children created ramps and raced the space men down it- they looked at lots of different ways to speed them up and to catch them at the end. We thought about what we wanted to be when we...

    Base 1 have been learning about owls this week. We have been finding out about different types of owls and where they nest. We read the stories Owl babies and The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark. We are making an owl using natural objects gathered from our outdoor area and Mrs Winward's garden. We have been looking at the life cycle of a barn owl. Mrs Charlesworth brought some owl pellets for...
