Food chains

In year 4 we have been learning about food chains. We learnt some new words, Producer means producing there own energy from the sun, plants do this. Consumer means anything that eats something. We learnt the arrows show flow of energy. By Summer Prescott.

Science Assembly

The children were literally blown away last week during an amazing Science assembly by Professor Tim Harrison from Bristol University. His demonstrations showed the children some of weird and wonderful properties of a range of gases and liquids. It definitely inspired some of our future scientists.

Year 4 teeth

In year 4 we have been making and learning about teeth. We all made our teeth out of plasticine, it was very sticky. We learned about the different types of teeth and their jobs, for example Molar,incisors,Canine. We also tried eating an apple with different teeth, using our incisors was quite tricky!

Scuttle Bugs

In our final week of the KS1 Science Club we created Scuttle Bugs. We thought about how the further back we pulled our scuttle bug the longer distance it would cover due to the elastic band spinning around. Well done to our engineers of the week: Zack, Daisy and Gabriella.

Balloon Powered Cars

This week in our KS1 Science Club we were making Balloon Powered Cars. We discussed how we could make our cars go quicker and further by blowing our balloons up as much as possible as the air will push the car forward. Well done to our Engineer of the week Zoe-Mae who showed brilliant teamwork skills helping other children to build their cars.

Crazy Catapults

In the first week of the KS1 Science Club we were building catapults. We focussed on how force is converted into energy and to make our catapults fling the counters further we needed more energy. Well done to our Engineer of the Week Elliot for making his counter fly the furthest distance across the classroom.

KS2 Science club

For our first week we focused on forces. We learnt about Newton’s theory that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This helped us to understand what made our balloon powered cars travel in the opposite direction to where the air escaped from the straw.
