Investigating

We investigated how our digestive system works using a sealable bag (stomach), a pair of tights (small intestine), biscuits, bananas, orange juice and water.

The Circulation Game

The Sea Lions enjoyed an interactive, scientific morning, learning how the circulatory system works. They worked in teams to read the instructions, to create the games and to learn more about the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood.

Breaking News…

 

Introducing… our Science TV reporters. The results are in! It is 3 days since our healthy teeth science investigation began… and here are some of our findings.

Investigating

We have set up a three-day long investigation to see how sugar and acid reacts with our teeth. We have logged our predictions and will record the results later in the week.

Super Science!

The Butterflies took part in a Pirate Density Investigation. We learnt that oil is less dense than water, meaning that the oil rose to the top!
 

 

Badgers’ Trip to Chester Zoo

We had an amazing time exploring Chester Zoo and loved learning about all the different animals we saw. Have a look at our little video to see what we got up to.
Thank you for our amazing trip Mrs. Allen!

Refraction

The Leopards investigated the effects of refraction: how refraction alters the direction of light. The children first predicted what they thought might happen. Then, they conducted an experiment and recorded the results. Finally, they discussed their conclusions as a class.

Shadows

Today, the Leopards looked at how the sun and shade affect their shadows. They considered shape and direction. They thought about time and the seasons, and about how their shadows change.

Washing Our Hands

The Sunflowers and Daffodils really enjoyed learning all about germs and how to wash their hands correctly. They put some ‘pretend germs’ on their hands and looked at them under a UV light box. They then washed them and looked at them again to make sure they had done a good job! Thank you to Jenny Baker from the Ward Alliance for teaching our children this important life skill so well.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears 

The children in Nursery have been reading this traditional tale. They have been retelling the story and joining in with the repeated refrains. They talked about how the three bears must have felt when they found Goldilocks in their house. They helped to make some porridge and talked about their likes and dislikes. They were super stars!
