Science Week Learning Highlights

Science Week Learning Highlights

Children in Owlet Class returned to school enthusiastically and are raring to go with their space project! The children made a rocket in the role play area and are hoping for a visit from outer space. Mrs Martin was delighted to hear that the chicks that were incubated and hatched with last year’s Owlet Class are doing so well.  Poppy and Jacob have two of them living at their house and the chickens are now laying eggs.

Children in Owl Class had lots of fun making their own snow out of baking powder and water and were surprised at what happened when they added vinegar! The children began their 'We are Weather Forecasters' project by considering weather in different parts of the UK and abroad, and starting investigations on how clouds make rain. 

Children in Panda Class had a very positive start to the new term and have been learning about forces and conducted an experiment to investigate the force of friction on a toy car.  

Children in Rhino Class launched their new learning project with a bang! Sue Palmer led two workshops – one to launch the learning project about being an astronaut and another about characters in writing.
