Our bean plants grew so well in the classroom that we decided to take them outside. We’ll need volunteers to keep them watered as spring becomes summer.

Sparking or Sparkling Science in Year 6

By Karen Spinks on Monday, March 12, 2018 in Science, STEM, Uncategorized, Year 6. No Comments


This afternoon, Year 6 have “combusted” iron wool and have found out that iron oxide is heavier than iron wool. This is due to the oxidation process, which changed the iron wool to iron oxide (denser). We did this by using electricity from a battery to add energy which created sparks; combusting iron wool looks very […]

Here’s just a few photographs of what year 6 have been working on over the last few afternoons. On Monday, we made elephant’s toothpaste: a colloid. This was created via a chemical reaction through mixing hydrogen peroxide, potassium iodide, washing-up liquid and food colouring. In Learning Adventure this afternoon, we looked at the works of Henry […]

We had a super afternoon of science in 5T building and testing model cars. The children started to identify different ways their cars could be improved in order to help them travel further! We looked at the size and shape of the wheels, weight of the chassis, the amount of air blown into the balloon, […]

This term, year 3 have had an amazing time in science.  One of our favourite lessons was when we investigated “thrust”.  We wanted to work out how to make our model, balloon powered, cars travel further.  We changed the variable of how much air was blown into the balloon.  We discovered that the more air that is blown […]

They worked at NASA in the 1950s and ’60s making the important calculations that helped launch the […]
