Year One have been learning about different ways to classify animals.
Year 3 investigated soils, making careful observations to identify differences between four types of soil. The pupils recorded these findings in a table, using scientific vocabulary and discovered soil is made from rocks and organic matter.
Year 4 Investigating habitats and classification
Y4 Investigating Digestion and Teeth
To end our unit on Evolution and inheritance, Year 6 pupils made their own fossils to excavate next week. It was quite a tricky task and pupils did fantatsic👍 We are looking forward to excavating them and learning about what fossils can teach us about the past.
During our Trip to the World Museum, Year 6 were able to see and touch so many weird and wonderful fossils from their collection.
As part of our topic on Classification, Year 6 were busy looking for taxonomic ranks when walking around the Bug House at the World Museum. We then used a dichotomous classification key to find an arthropod from each class of species.
Year 6 learned all about the heart and how it pumps blood around our bodies. We played the circulation game and made clay models of the heart in pairs.
Year 6 explored osmosis and diffusion through an experiment with jelly babies and painting with ink and water!
