Science Gallery 2021-2022
In Cygnet class this week we have learnt that animals can be grouped according to what they eat and found out about the diets of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
Children in Cygnet Class have been classifying animals.
As part of our science topic, we have have been observing root structures and learning about how the roots support a plant’s growth. We have planted broad beans, mangetout and peas! Over the coming weeks we will measure their growth rate and observe their different root structures.
Smashing scientific stereotypes; natural growth in the grounds; minibeast hotels; Mars rocket animals; worm hunts; mini microscopes; growing micro-organisms on bread; live birth of a calf….learning all centred around ‘growth’ for this year’s British Science Week in school.
As part of our work on plants we have been exploring the school grounds and identifying the flowers that we found growing.
In Cygnet Class in science we carried out an investigation to answer the question ‘are all seeds the same?’ We looked closely at different types of seeds and found that seeds are different sizes, shapes and colours.
Also we have been planting our own seeds. First we had to roll a strip of newspaper to make a pot. Then we filled the pot with compost. We made a hole and planted a seed in it. We will water the seeds regularly and when they have started to grow, transfer the plants to the outdoor area.
As part of our work on seasonal change and how animals adapt to the different seasons, we worked together to show a year in the life of a robin
Children have been investigating Air Resistance through making their own parachutes
