Year 1 have been learning about animals and humans and have identified animals based on their footprint. Children have also been using artistry to draw the other half of an animal when given an image of one half. They have also been identifying and labelling human body parts.
In Year 2 they have been learning about what makes a healthy diet. They have been discussing how we can have a little bit of everything that we love and have designed their own healthy meal plans.
The children have been learning about plants in Year 3, including functions of different parts of a plant. This week, they have explored two kinds of roots and their functions.
Year 4 have been exploring different sounds and how sounds can be produced. They have been listening to various aural stimuli and had to work out what the sound could be and how it might have been formed. The children planned an experiment for this week whereby they will be testing how far sound can travel.
In Year 5 they have been exploring living things and recently discovered the inner-workings of plants by dissecting a lily, in order to identify the various reproductive parts and explain what each does at certain stages.
Year 6 have been investigating electricity and how to make a working circuit. They have created their own circuits and experimented with how different voltages affect the brightness of a bulb.
