Science Week - Nature Art - Our Nature Walk and the amazing work of Andy Goldsworthy, inspired us to create our own Nature Art. Today we contributed to our whole school project to celebrate the fantastic learning during Science Week. Can you guess what is the theme of our school Nature Art (look for the clues)? What materials did we use to create it?
Science Week - Bread Experiment (Day 7) - What affects the growth of bacteria?
Science Week - Bread Experiment (Day 6) - What affects the growth of bacteria?
Science Week - Bread Experiment (Day 5) - What affects the growth of bacteria?
Science Week - Bread Experiment (Day 4) - What affects the growth of bacteria?
Science Week - Bread Experiment (Day 1) - What affects the growth of bacteria? The children will enjoy working scientifically, developing their observational skills and drawing conclusions, as they investigate mould on bread.
Science Week - Sugar Experiment - Sugar is a type of carbohydrate. Our gut contains trillions of bacteria (the yeast in this experiment). These bacteria are essential in digestion. Bacteria can digest sugar and this process produces much gas (carbon dioxide here). This causes pressure to be put on your bowel (the balloon) resulting in abdominal discomfort making you feel sick.
Children's Mental Health Week (Growing Together) - Who supports me to grow? Children created their own 'Support Balloons' and considered the people in their lives who help them to grow and support them when they need help.
Science - We are scientists and surgeons! Soyuz learned how to dissect and identify the internal and external anatomy of a lamb's heart. We measured the weight, the width and the length of the heart.
Music - Soyuz have rhythm! They have been learning how to read rhythm notation and then even composed their own rhythms and performed them with a partner.
Science - As part of our 'The Circulatory System' unit of learning, we have been extremely busy learning how to identify and name the main parts of the heart. We made 3D heart models using play dough and then labelled the main parts.
Science - In 1666, Newton made a discovery about light that led him to develop his Theory of Colour, a theory that still informs our understanding of light today. In order to observe Newton’s Theory of Colour, we shone a torch through a transparent plastic cup and hold a piece of white card in front of the refracted ray of light as it left the cup. We noticed that although the light looks white, it is actually made up of all the colours of the rainbow! We made Newton’s Colour Wheel to help us to understand Newton’s discovery of the ‘Visible Spectrum’. Similarly to Newton, we noticed that white light is a combination of the seven different colours found in the rainbow.
Science - We dimmed the lights and shone a torch through the slit towards the mirror. We looked for the incident ray and the reflected ray of light. We learned that the law of reflection is what allows us to see an object reflected in a mirror. We used our understanding of reflection and the angles of incidence and reflection to make a periscope. A periscope is a device for seeing over or around something. We tested out our periscopes by using it to look over things, such as around corners. We thought about how a periscope works and how is light reflected by the mirrors in the periscope. We learned that periscopes were first used by sailors in around 1860, who used them in submarines to see above the surface of the water. They were also used by soldiers in the First World War, to see over the top of their trenches. They are still used today by tanks and some submarines.
Science - Designing and making an aeroplane that has a moving propeller or lights up when you turn the switch on.
Religious Education - Following the Buddha's teachings - Freeze Frames showing the Noble Eightfold Path.
Science - How does light travel?
Science - Electricity (observing and explaining the effects of differing the voltages in a circuit)
Our self portraits. Inspired by one of Britain’s foremost contemporary artists, Julien Opie, we created our own self portrait as part of our topic Identity.
Art - Self Portraits Silhouettes
