Year 3 – Science/Geography

On Thursday, Willow class went on a trip to York Chocolate Story and had the best time. We learnt a lot about the history of chocolate production and how chocolate is made from a cocoa pod into a chocolate bar. We learnt about how it can be changed from a solid to a liquid and back to a solid again. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed making chocolate lollies and especially getting to eat lots of it!

Year 4 – Science

Year 4 have been experimenting with ice for Science Week, as part of the unit ‘Frozen in time’. We looked at why salt was the best de-icer on a wintery day. We observed what will happen to ice when we changed the variables of the experiment.  We ensured that we did a fair test during each experiment.

Year 3 – Science

To end Science week, Ash class investigated displacement. We dropped plasticine into the water and timed it until it sank. Each time we flattened it to see if it sank slower or floated. #ScienceWeek #Dimensions

Year 2 – Science

This week, in Science, Year 2 have been learning all about sound! Children have been thinking about all the different sounds they can hear around school.

Year 3 – Science

This week, Ash class explored floating and sinking in science. We gathered different items and predicted if they would float or sink. Then, we conducted the experiment and wrote up our conclusions. #ScienceWeek #Dimensions

Year 6 – Science

Year 6 have enjoyed learning about refraction this week in their science lessons. We were fascinated to discover that we could use a prism to refract light which made a rainbow appear.

Year 5 – Science

This week, Year 5 conducted a science investigation to determine which exercise has the greatest impact on our heart rates. Our scientists were thorough in ensuring it was a fair test and even used stethoscopes to measure their pulses, before creating a digital line graph using Purple Mash! #dimensionscc #scientists #investigations

Year 6 – Science

As scientists, Year 6 investigated which ‘beaks’ are best adapted to pick up different types of ‘seeds’ this week, linked to our work on evolution and inheritance. The investigation was great fun and helped us understand how Darwin came to his conclusions. #Grammarsaurus #year6 #science

Yr 5 – Science

Have you ever wondered what flows through your veins?  Budding scientists took over Year 5 this week and created blood samples to find out about the different components in our blood.  Make sure you stop and ask the children in Aspen or Beech who will be able to tell you all about each component and its unique feature!

Year 4 – Science

This week, Year 4 have been learning about light and shadows in Science. They used mirrors to to explore reflections through different activities.
