Year 2 have been investigating germs! They have been using glitter to show how germs can spread - take a look at some of the pictures below which show their experiments!
As part of Year 6's learning about electricity, the children have been investigating how to make bulbs brighter and dimmer. They have also been building circuits involving buzzers and motors. Later in the half term, Year 6 will be using this knowledge to build a circuit for their model Anderson shelters!
Sadly, one of our sunflowers in the Reception garden is starting to droop! We investigated the head of one of them using magnifying glasses and tweezers. The children noticed there were small seeds inside the head of the sunflower, so we discussed what we could do with them and have decided to plant them again and see what happens!
Year 5 had an amazing opportunity to work scientifically and investigate practically the physiology of the heart by dissecting a sheep’s heart! The children were able to find for themselves the heart chambers, arteries, veins, valves and heart strings. We were so impressed with the children’s knowledge and ability to work forensically. Take a look at some of the pictures below!
