4th- 8th March 2024 

This years Science week is based around our animal topics, the whole week was filled with exciting lessons and activities.

Exploring Sound

Class One explored sound in Science by Mrs Barclay's electric drum kit. During our weekly singing session we sang along to the beat of the drums. We learnt about how sound travles and all about rhythm.

Going on a Bug Hunt     

Class two have been learning about habitats. On Friday, they explore the school field and the pond area looking for mini-beasts.

They recorded their findings and then made sure the bugs returned safely to their homes.

Brilliant Birds

Class Three learnt about birds. They discoverd that there are many different types of owls and they are all adapted to where they live.

They designed their own birds and made models of them. They finish off their topic by visting the local RSPA centre at Leighton Moss and were lucky enough to hear Bitterns and see Marsh Harriers.

TeaBag Babies

Class Four have been looking at the human life cycle. They made Teabag babies  - cardboard babies with teas bags attached to the back of the head and the chest. They have to keep the baby safe and alive all week. They even have to bring the babies in the class for baby club! They also looked at how humans grow and change. They set out to find if the tallest people have the largest feet. They made predictions and then measured each other and displayed their findings on a scatter graph.

Science in a Box

We set everyone a challenge to create a Science Box. Sixty children took part and they created some fantastic Science themed displays. We had Solar Systems, Fossils, Moons, Underwater habitats as well as the desert, rainforest, jungle, farms and river. 




22nd - 29th November 2021

We all had a very exciting Super Science Week. Our Focus was Materials and their uses and all week the children were focused on Science in their lessons.


We learnt about the importance of STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and looked at ho we use these skills in every thing we do. Class 3 and 4 had a visit from Dr Wise from Lanacster Uni and worked on solving real life STEM problems. 

Class 4 had to solve real life problems based around Space. They built an air filter similar to the one made to save the Apollo13 astronauts and they had to plan, develop and build the best Mars lander. 

Class 3 had to think about the story of the Three Little Pigs and they were challenged to build a house that could withstand rain and the big bad wolf blowing as hard as he could.

As part of the week, children have been set the challenge of making their Science in a Box exhibit. They brought their boxes in and we held an exhibition. What amazing work and what a lot of science learning.

On Friday, we dressed like a scientist. The only rule we had for our costume was that you had to be able to explain the science behind what you were wearing.
