5/6 H Filtering

Using real life natural objects, including ones which could be found on a beach like sand, the children made filters. We look forward to testing them out and seeing the results! Please follow and like us:

Travelling Zoo KS1

We were very lucky to have the travelling zoo into school to meet the children who had moved up to their new class as part of their new topic on Fur, Skin and Feathers. The smiles on the children’s faces was lovely to see and also the fear on some of the staffs faces. Please […]

Blast off!

To finish off our topic, Y4/5D and Y5/6H went outside to launch our bottle rockets. We recorded and compared the timings of each rocket. Then we spoke about the science behind the rockets movement, such as the force of gravity, air resistance and pressure. Please follow and like us:

Y5/6H Forces

The children in 5/6H looked at the forces gravity and air resistance. We investigated if the size of a parachute would slow a rocket capsule down or not. We discovered the larger the parachute, the longer it took an object to hit the ground. 11DC76E1-9238-47EE-8CFB-6AD57015443B Please follow and like us:

Shireoaks Marina

The children had a fun packed day at Shireoaks Marina. They went pond dipping and learnt about a wide range of plants, insects and amphibians. Next they visited the Dawn Rose, a replica of a cuckoo boat and found out about how it was made. After break, the children learnt how to open and close the […]

Year 5 Space Dome!

Today our Year 5s from Rockingham, Greasbrough and Roughwood have the Space dome in school to learn about the universe. The children have had the experience of seeing constellations, planets and the solar system as part of their Science learning. All children have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have taken new knowledge to apply to […]

Science

We took our learning outside to do some planting. We looked at what plants need to grow and used our investigation skills to plan an investigation. We chose to put our plants outside, in the cupboard, on the window sill and under a tree to see which one would grow the quickest. Which one do […]

Do you have what it takes to be an astronaut?

Yesterday we learnt about the skills required to become an astronaut. We carried out a fitness test by taking part in the exercises the astronauts have to do to keep fit. We then looked at our reaction times by carrying out an experiment to see how fast we would reacted to catch a ruler. We […]

A Watery Week in Foundation One

In Foundation One we have enjoyed exploring boats and water as part of our learning about the coastguard. We have explored materials and sorted objects that float and sink. We have created boat shapes using foil and counted passengers into our rescue boats. We have made simple sailing boats and had a fantastic time racing […]

Exploring our senses

In science we have been exploring our senses. We felt a smooth conker, smelt sweet perfume and strong coffee, heard birds singing and cars beeping and looked at optical illusions. Please follow and like us:

4C’s whole school assembly.

As part of our real project, 4C have presented a germs assembly to whole whole school to promote washing your hands and stop spreading of germs. We are so proud of them! They spoke clearly and with clear knowledge. They even had demonstrations and a Q+A section.   Please follow and like us:

Germ rap!

As part of our REAL project, 4C are creating PSAs for the children of Rockingham. These will be viewed after the assembly children will be presenting to the school. Here is the rap one group has been creating. Music video coming soon! I can’t wait to see the finished results. Please follow and like us:

Wonderful Wildlife and Woods

On Saturday, we were very lucky to have one of our parents, Mr Wood who has his own landscaping business, come to school to help tidy up the wildlife area. Have a look at the before photos and see the amazing difference with the after photos! We are so grateful to have such caring and […]

1B – Egg Science

1B did a Science experiment, trying to dye eggs for Easter. As we always say in 1B- Science doesn’t always work but we always learn from it and it helps to build our resilience and enquiring & exploring skills.  We had good fun trying to dye the eggs in shaving foam and food dye. Look […]

Science Buskers Ready!

  Here are some more Science experiments for you to try in National Science Week. Try- Practise- Busk it and remember to explain the Science to the grown ups AFTER you have amazed them! Please follow and like us:

  WELCOME TO NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK! Following on from our fabulous Science Assembly with our brilliant Science Ambassadors.   Here is you first experiment to try at home. Most of the ingredients are household products so you should be able to find them at home. Ask permission first. Remember that as a Science Busker, you […]
