What we have been working on in science!
As a school, we have been spending a lot of time ensuring that the children are working scientifically in lessons by completing lots of experiments in all year groups. This ensures that children are developing the practical skills needed in every day life and above all, developing a love of science!
Already this year, Year 1 have conducted a science experiment thinking about using sense of hearing to decide which sounds travel the furthest. Year 2 have been making predictions about what the best conditions are for seeds to be planted in in order for them to grow. Year 3 have been testing and investigating sources of light around school and have created bar charts displaying their findings. Year 4 have been investigating living things and habitats in the playground. Year 5 have been finding out about and exploring space and Year 6 have been creating classification keys and completing experiments about finding out how we know that yeast is a living organism!
I know that there are certainly many more opportunities for the children to be working scientifically already planned in.
We asked children what a scientist is and this is what the children said:
"Scientists try to find answers to questions about the world and the universe."
"Science is about finding out life- long questions."
