Science Shares - September 2019 to January 2020

Each month, Mr. Hancock meets with a different selection of children from across the school to share their science learning from the past few weeks. This gives the individual children the chance to see what exciting activities have been going on so far. Please see below for comments from the Science Shares so far this year:

"My favourite lesson has probably been when we recorded the findings of the plants. We left it for the weekend and when we came back we checked what it looked like." Year 3

"I liked using the identification keys because we broke it down into different sections and found out what it [the animal] was." Year 6

"I liked going on our autumn walk because we got to see things." Year 1

"Learning about the flowers and how they live and move and face the sun when it’s really light. We saw a video about someone taking parts of the plants off and someone told her to stop doing that because of how important it was." Year 3 

"We went on a bug hunt and took pictures – I found a spider web with water on." Year 2

"We learnt about forces like gravity and pushes and pulls. We did about jumping out of an airplane and how a parachute slows you down." Year 5

"I enjoyed finding out about different animals. [We learnt about the] animal name, type, diet and diet facts." Year 4

"I enjoyed doing the experiments because we could find out for ourselves." Year 5

"I enjoyed the heart dissection because it was really hands-on and we got to look at the anatomy of the heart." Year 6

"We have been learning about how celery can suck up coloured water." Year 3 

"We have learnt from a science book to make some colours change and spread. We've been doing some research on it and we found it spread all about. Some [colours] spread a little bit and some spread a lot..." Year 1

"We learnt how to change the colour of the celery. We were trying to see if the food colouring went up the celery." Year 3

"We got a tuning fork, tapped it on the table and dipped it in water. We looked to see whether it vibrated...we had to see which was the lowest pitch and which was the highest pitch...the windpipe and the glockenspiel were the highest pitch." Year 4

"We learnt about natural selection at first. How animals have changed over time which also links into evolution as well." Year 6
