Autumn Term 1 2021-2022

This half term, Year 1 have been doing their environmental topic on the recycling of paper. They have been sorting different materials, thinking about which ones are paper and wood.

Year 2 have been looking at different materials and planning tests to find out which material would make the best umbrella.

Year 3 have been investigating forces. They have been learning all about gravity and using Newton meters to measure the weight and mass of different objects. 

Year 4 have been learning about the classification of living things and have been thinking about how living things can be sorted into different groups.

Year 5 have been investigating chemical and physical changes of materials, looking at separating mixtures and exploring how this can be done using evaporation and filtration.

Year 6 have been learning about electricity. They have researched all of the important discoveries about electricity and looked closely at the atom. They have also created circuits using the correct scientific symbols and started to plan a fair test to develop their enquiry skills. 

Below are some pictures of our science displays throughout school.
