Spring Term 2
This half term we have been looking at forces and developing our knowledge on the different forces around us. The children have also developed their knowledge of Isaac Newton and his understanding of gravity.
The children have been completing a range of investigations to develop our knowledge of gravity, up thrust, friction and air resistance. Whilst doing this we have been gaining confidence in using the fair test planners and presenting our finding in a range of ways such as bar charts and line graphs.
Autumn Term 2/ Spring Term 1
'How Could you be the next CSI Investigator?'
This half term we are looking at materials and changes of state in science. We will be looking at properties of materials, whether materials change and if the changes are reversible or irreversible. We will be looking at how we can use our knowledge of this to solve a crime towards the end of the topic.
Dissolving and separating materials in water
We carried out a test to see if different materials have reversible or irreversible changes. We used different methods such as filtering, sieving and evaporating.
We have been separating materials into groups and using venn diagrams to look at properties of materials.
Autumn term 1
Will we ever send another human to the moon?
Our topic this half term is all about the solar system, movement of planets in relation to the sun and moon and also developing our knowledge of day and night.
This week we have been looking at the different planets in our Solar System, where they are in relation to the sun and also what the planets are made of.
We all went speed dating the other planets to find out a range of information about them including how may days they have in a year and how many moons they have.
We have also been looking closely at the idea of the Moon, Sun and Earth as spherical bodies.
