The foam we made is special because each tiny foam bubble is filled with oxygen. The yeast acted as a catalyst (a helper) to remove the oxygen from the hydrogen peroxide. Since it did this very fast, it created lots and lots of bubbles. Did you notice the bottle got warm? Our experiment created a reaction called an Exothermic Reaction – that means it not only created foam, it created heat!
Thank you Mason for volunteering to explain to our Year 6 Parents what our experiment was all about!
Year 6 enjoying a Science quiz as part of our Science Week 2019 activities! We can’t wait to show you our work tomorrow !
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
Year 4 Changing State
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!
