Nature Club


Nature club have been identifying minibeasts and leaves that have fallen from trees. They have also been creating natural art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. Next, they are planning to make a bug house!

Year 1 Dioramas  :  file (10142.7k)

Year 1 enjoyed making their animal habitat dioramas.

Year 2 habitat dioramas


Year 2 had a fantastic time creating habitat dioramas today. They made models of animals and plants to go in the habitat that they recreated. They also thought about how the animals and plants were suited to the habitat.

Science week pupil comments


“We enjoyed doing Lego building because it was really exciting. We also enjoyed when Mr Andrews came in to teach us about safety equipment.” – Ellie Graham and Alexander Sturzaker

“Building the robots was really fun and I liked learning about the different equipment that keeps people safe.” – Jessica Wiper

“In Science Week, we really enjoyed the part where we learnt about how science is used in surgery and we had to try and get the equipment out of the jelly with chopsticks. Then we were set a challenge to create a tool to make it easier to get the equipment out.” – Isabella Pace and William Beesley

“I liked the building/engineering workshop because we got to create a picture and make it with bamboo sticks and blu tack.” – Euan Joyce

“I enjoyed trying to stop the structure from falling down. It was fun at the end because you could see how everyone else had built their tower.” – Sophie Mitchell

“I have really enjoyed Science Week because it was really fun trying all of the different experiments. I really liked how everyone was working together to make 3D models only using bamboo sticks and blu tack. When we were making shadow puppets, it was really cool when we found out that if you move the object further away from the light, it makes the shadow bigger but less clear. Science Week has also really help me improve my science knowledge.” – Finlay Delaney

Science Week - How science is used in surgery


Year 3 and 4 had a visit from four STEM Ambassadors who delivered an exciting workshop on how science is used in surgery. They started off by using chopsticks to see if they could extract objects (including marbles) from a tub of jelly. They then thought about how they could improve this tool for use within the body. Every group made a much improved tool and were able to pick up many more objects.

Science Week - Electrocity Lego Workshop


Year 3 and 4 used circuits to light up the buildings they had created using lego. The children particulary enjoyed completing the circuit which made the train move forwards and backwards.

Science Week - Lego workshop


Year 1 and 2 had an exciting start to Science Week! They learnt all about the properties of the plastic lego brick. Then they designed and built different robots with moving parts.

Materials hunt


Year 2 went on a materials hunt and sorted them into man-made and natural materials.
