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.
