Today we consolidated some of our topic learning on a visit to our local animal park and had a great adventure!
Our Science investigation on push and pull forces (in sports) generated the question: How much force will make a ball travel the furthest? 🎾⚽️
We went on a hunt around school to identify wild plants.
Feeding the chickens is an absolute joy, although they did get somewhat excited when we opened the gate! Luckily, we had kind assistance from some of the older children and we were able to give them clean water and checked they had plenty of food.
Today we thought about what plants need to grow. We thought of some important scientific questions that we wanted to answer. We got ready to plant a bean using compost. Mrs B is trying to grow a bean on a wet paper towel so that we can compare what happens. Mrs O […]
Following our science week in school, the children were given a choice of fun experiments to try at home as part of their home learning this week. There were lots of fantastic reactions and it is clear to see that we have some super scientists in 2WB!
During science week, we enjoyed researching a famous scientist linked to our current science topic – Animals, including humans. We found out that the first fossil hunter was a lady called Mary Anning and we were really interested in learning about what fossils are. We saw and touched what a fossil might be like (from a […]
As part of our science week activities, we started our day with a ‘Top Trumps’ morning maths challenge. We looked at animal facts to deduct the oldest animal in each group, then the oldest for the whole class. In the afternoon, we took part in an innovation challenge. The children had to choose a […]
Yesterday we attended a live webinar all about Antarctica – as part of #AntarcticaWeek Festival 2020 (@GlacierThwaites). We loved learning facts about what animals live there and how to keep warm. Thank you Mrs Burkinshaw for organising this for us! 🐧🐳🦭❄️❄️❄️❄️
This week we decided that our science investigation would answer the question: ‘Does size matter to make a strong boat?’ We thought about the materials we could use and how we could investigate our question. We agreed that paper and paperclips could make a boat and we could test the strength using marbles. To make […]
