Our children love developing their Science skills in a variety of ways.
Learning in Action during Space Week
Space Week took place on the 14th to 18th June and the whole school was involved in activities around the theme of space. The children were launched into a journey to Mars through an online assembly on Monday and visited the stars in a space dome on Friday. The experience enabled the children to connect biology, chemistry and physics to space from learning activities across the curriculum.

We prepared for a launch into space with a robot during an online assembly.
Learning across the school
Nursery made craters on the Moon. Reception took part in space role-play.
Year 1 created the Moon’s surface. Year 2 measured shadows on the Moon.

Year 5 investigated launching rockets and Year 6 created star constellations
adapting them to make them travel further. linking to their electricity topic.
Every child visited the Space Wonder Dome to
explore the stars and virtually walk on the Moon.
Year 6 used Mathematics to set up a home in space.
Year 2 studied non-fiction texts about space.
We explored a range of scientists and improved our Science Capital.
We took part in the Great Science Share on the 15th June and shared what we had discovered through investigations and research.
Children used their own ideas during investigations.
Year 3 used planning grids to investigate plants
