Flower Hunt

We've been plant hunting in class 4 to see what flowers we could identify and name.

Can you recognise and name any of these plants?

Steven Lewis Neil

We were very lucky to have another visit from a fantastic scientist to help us investigate materials and there properties. We had to choose materials that were the best to build a mouse house from. The children experimented with the different materials and built some wonderful homes with many special features! ...the mice loved them!! 

Floating Investigation 

When looking at floating and sinking materials the children noticed that the shape of the object effected whether it would stay at the top of the water. We investigated the best shape for a boat and the children's determination paid off and they were over the moon when they made one that floated! 

Sinking and floating 

We conducted an experiment to investigate which materials would sink and which would float. We made a prediction, tested each material and sorted them into the categories.

Materials

We have been exploring materials and sorting them into the categories or metal, glass, fabric, plastic and wood. The children have been on a material hunt around school and we have been investigating their different properties.

Can you identify what materials these items are made from?

The Body and our senses

We have been learning all about our body and our senses, talking about its functions and thinking about which body parts we use to taste, touch, smell, see and hear. We conducted an investigation to see whether we could use our senses to identify different objects and food. Our favourite station was the tasting table!  

Are we all the same?

We investigated whether we are all the same by measuring our hand spans, how tall we are and how far we can jump. Our results showed us that we are all different and we talked about how we should celebrate and embrace our differences because if we were all the same life would be very boring!

A Special Science Visitor 

We started our new animal topic with a bang this week and were visited by the Science specialist Steven Lewis Neil. He taught us all about different animals, where we can find them, what they eat, how they move and lots lots more! We were Scientists and examined some of the animals with microscopes. Some of us were even brave enough to touch and hold them!
