In Science Y6 are learning about light. They look at the composition of white light and how complex colours are made up of combinations of the three basic colours (red, green and blue). They then made their own complex colours by mixing basic colours in a colour wheel, and made white light with a colour wheel containing all the colours of the rainbow.


On Tuesday 22nd October, we were delighted to have been given the opportunity to attend Laurel Academy for their aspirations day. It included Science activities which were tailored to the Y6 National Curriculum, a Science show which was run by the STEM Science Ambassadors and the Royal Society of Chemistry, and a Maths Masterclass which was led by Delta Maths Directors and Senior Staff.

MAD SCIENCE ASSEMBLY: On Tuesday 10th September 2019, years 1-6 enjoyed a science packed assembly, delivered by 'Mad Science'. They learnt all about different types of electricity, including: static, renewable and mains. The children loved seeing the practical science aspects of the assembly!

After learning all about how sounds are made from the air molecules vibrating and creating sound waves, Year 4 investigated ways to see and feel the vibrations, as well as hearing the sound.

Year 2 - Science Week - Identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited - Making wormeries

Reception and Nursery - Learning About Life Cycles

Year 6 - Drugs talk from a local police officer

Year 6 - Making a healthy meal. 

Year 2 - Big School Bird Watch - Find out about and describe the basic needs of animals for survival (water, food and air)

Year 4 Trip to Eureka 

To support their Burps, Bottoms & Bile topic, Year 4 visited Eureka. They spent time looking around the 'All About Me' section and also took part in the 'Gross Lab Workshop' about digestion and our bodies.

Year 6 Practical Science (Heart Dissection)

Y5 Science Work Samples

Year 4  Science Samples

On Monday 1st October 2018, Year 4 had a visit from two community dental nurses who came to talk to them about their job and how the children can look after their teeth in the best possible way. The dental nurses were blown away by how much the children already knew! During the talk, the children discussed: how many times a day they should brush their teeth and for how long, what time a day they should brush their teeth, what foods and drinks are bad for your teeth, how long they should wait after eating before brushing their teeth and how much fluoride, in parts per million (ppm), their toothpaste should have. The children had many questions which were answered during the session, as well as lots of their own facts and stories which they shared with the nurses. It was definitely an informative session and the children even went away with a brand new toothbrush!

Year 4 18/19 - Brushing our teeth using our toothbrushes from home, before writing our teeth brushing top tips!

How do different liquids effect tooth enamel? - Science experiment using egg shells which are a tooth-like substance

Year 4 looked at their own teeth and came up with a key to mark which teeth were: milk, adult, missing, wobbly, had a filling etc. It was great to compare the different sets of teeth!

How does saliva start the digestion process?

Year 4 recreated the digestion process, using crackers as the food that needed to be digested. We crunched the crackers like teeth would do, added water for saliva, added orange juice for the acids in the stomach that break the food down then squeezed the food through some tights which acted as our intestines. The tights separated the goodness from the waste.
