Science is a core subject in our curriculum. Fostering a curiosity for the world and developing an enquiring mind are crucial skills for our children to develop. Have a look at the exciting science happening in Primary! Don't forget to ask your children what they have been up to in their science lessons.
Our budding Year 1 scientists investigated the properties of various materials.
The Year 2s have been exploring what plants need to survive and grow. We did lots of investigations using different seeds, planted a few of these as class plants and used them to make predictions and draw conclusions. We also had fun exploring the school compound, identifying healthy and unhealthy plants.
In our plants unit, Y3 had many enjoyable opportunities to take their learning beyond the classroom, to the outdoors, where they did some planting, experimenting, and growing!
Year 4s are now mini-experts in all matters electricity! We were able to connect simple circuits and also learn lots of facts about electricity.
Year 5 are currently exploring our unit on forces. We have been investigating the different types of forces and their effects.
We have just started our unit about light. We began by looking at how a ray of light travels in a straight line and bounces off an object so that we can see it. We created our own educational presentation for children to explain this.
