Welcome to our new Science Blog page.  Here we'll be showing what the children are learning about in Science lessons over the year.  

British Science week poster competition

A great big THANK YOU to all of the children who took part in the poster competition this year.  You can view the winning entries by going to their facebook page. 



Y2 Science

Emily from Y2CF wanted to show her work from last half term when she had been learning all about the human body in our Busy Bodies topic. Her work shows a picture of the human skeleton and the names of the different bones. Emily said that she had been using comparing and measuring skills during the topic. 

Alaina from Y2CW wanted to show a piece of work that she enjoyed doing from last term.  The children had to carry out a test to look for patterns using balloons.  As you can see, Alaina had to record the information on a table and used maths skills to help with making comparisons. 


Y5 Science 

Adah in Y5TE has enjoyed learning all about the human body and its systems.  She did a piece of work where she learned all about the effects of drugs on various parts of the human body, such as the brain and nervous system.  

Y4 Science

Matthew in Y4 has been learning about animals, including humans.  He said that he had used different skills during his science lessons such as observing, comparing and predicting.  He really enjoyed looking at animal skulls and chose to record about a Narwhal.  


Previous learning 

What have Y6 been learning about this half term in Science lessons? 

Lydia and Kara, in Y6, have enjoyed learning all about the Earth and how it moves, and How we see things - 'light'.  They have been using periscopes to carry out investigations.  Take a look at the work they have recorded in their Science books at the bottom of this page, all about how the earth moves.  

Lydia and Kara both said they have used lots of different scientific skills during Science lessons, such as observing, recording and predicting.  They carried out an investigation to find out what time of day their shadows would be at their shortest.  

They said that everyone in their class has enjoyed doing lots of practical experiments in Science lessons and have learned to use all their different skills to help them. 

In Key Stage 1 this half term, the children have been learning all about Ocean Habitats and the creatures that live in them.  They have been helped along the way by some of our Superheroes - Book Boy and Brilliant Betty.  

Maggie and Marc, from Y2, have really enjoyed doing practical experiments, and research using the internet and books. They have also been doing experiments using balloons - finding out which size balloon will fall to the ground the fastest?  You could even try this experiment at home.  All you need is balloons of different shapes and sizes, and a good pair of lungs to blow them up.  Try dropping them from different heights to see how long it takes them to reach the ground!  Do you get the same results every time?


Here some of the Y6's are carrying out experiments to investigate the length of shadows at different times of the day. They planned, predicted, concluded and evaluated, along with using line graphs to interpret their results.
