This half term we will be doing a lot of revision ready for SATs week. There will be a parents evening Monday 13th March and Tuesday 14th March for you to discuss this with your child's teacher.
We will also be doing lots of practical Science activities - we will post pictures on here each week.
Science Investigations - Week 1
This week we looked at how to stop an egg from breaking.
We chose the materials that we thought would stop the egg from breaking when we dropped it.
See the pictures for our results.
Science Investigations Week 2
This week we are investigating liquids.
We looked at the density of different liquids.
Do you know what density means?
Can you identify the different liquids in the cups?
How can we make our own lava lamp?
We used water, oil and food colouring, then we added an alka seltzer.
Look at the pictures below to see what happened!
Science Investigations - Week 3
This week we looked at electrical circuits.
We made our own circuits to light up a bulb then we investigated what would happen when we changed some of the components.
Science Investigations - Week 4
Session 1 - Light
In this session we looked at how light travels, we used mirrors to reflect light and change its direction of travel.
