We love designing experiments to test our theories. Here you can see photos from our recent science lessons.
- Friction - using newton meters we measured the force of the friction between trays and a variety of surfaces.
- Levers - we examined what impact the position of the fulcrum had when it come to the amount of effort needed to move a load.
- Air resistance - we loved making parachutes to examine, and then graph, the relationship between surface area and the time taken to fall to the ground.
- Absorbency - we tested the absorbency of a range of paper towels to find out which was the best value for money.
- Crater investigation - we looked at both how differently sized meteorites impact the size of resulting crater and how meteorites at different speeds can impact crater size. We had a lot of fun with a tray of flour during this investigation!
- Reproduction in plants - after learning about the reproductive features of a flower, the children loved heading into the garden and examining them for themselves. We were able to identify the anther, filament, stigma and style of several flowers.
- Seed dispersal - we loved learning about the different methods of seed dispersal and examining a range of seeds.
