Gear Ratios

In Class 11’s final Forces lesson we explored the mechanism and uses of gears. We then created our own gears and explored how the different sizes of the gears effects the number of revolutions.  

Working Scientifically

Class 11 have been combining a topic on Forces with a unit of Working Scientifically. We have been exploring the mechanisms behind pulleys, levers and gears. In our most recent lesson, the class put into practice their understanding of levers – creating a scenario using classroom equipment where they investigated Read more…

Periscope Investigation

As part of our light topic in Science, Class 14 looked at reflection. We linked this to our History topic as soldiers used periscopes to look over the top in the trenches in WW1. Children designed their own periscopes using cereal boxes and mirrors.

Exciting Electricity

In Class 13, we love science. Within our lesson today we had the chance to conduct an experiment! Last week we wrote our methods and predictions; this week we put our theories to the test and recorded our results. This allowed the children to see how a basic circuit is Read more…

Shadows and Science

In Class 13 we have been looking at shadows. To put our knowledge to the test we conducted an experiment! So we could understand how shadow shapes change,  we took our torches, grabbed a handy glue stick and some rulers. The children then measured how the shadow grew or shrank Read more…

Eggs-traordinary Results

…and the results are in! As many of the children predicted, the fizzy drink had an adverse effect on the egg-shell (our teeth in this investigation) with a large amount of discolouration and some flaking occurring. Coffee also caused a lot of discolouration. However, the affect of the vinegar was Read more…

How are shadows formed?

Class 14 started the topic ‘Seeing Light’ this week and began by recapping their prior knowledge of how shadows are formed. We discussed various light sources (both natural and artificial) and how objects block these lights to form shadows. We also discussed opaque, translucent and transparent objects and how light Read more…
