Science in Year 5- Air Resistance (Spring Term 1)
We have been learning all about forces in our Science work. We recently planned and carried out an investigation into air resistance. We created spinners of different sizes, and then predicted which would create the most air resistance when dropped from a height. We timed each drop, and then analysed our results.

Science in Year 5- Properties of Materials (Autumn Term 1)
Year 5 have had a great time being scientific investigators during Autumn Term 1. They enjoyed taking part in a range of different science investigations which included testing the properties of a range of different materials. One of their favourite investigations was when they were asked to drop an egg from a height and were given limited resources to construct a way of protecting their egg. Not many eggs survived the fall!
Reception and Year 1's Trip to Eureka
On Tuesday 9th October 2018, our Reception and Year One class went on an exciting day out to Eureka in Halifax.
During the visit the children were able to explore a range of different galleries including the 'All about Me' one, which linked with their current Understanding the World and Science topics. They were able to engage their senses during a variety of activities and investigated textures, and smells and used a variety of tools to explore and make observations and measurements.
Reception and Year 1's Trip to Underwater Street
On Tuesday 3rd October 2017, the children in Reception and Year 1 had a fantastic day out at Underwater Street. It was an action packed day with activities from start to finish, in fact the children didn't even want to stop for dinner which is unheard of!! They were given the freedom to explore the numerous activities that the centre has to offer and make many exciting things to take home. Activity areas included; Art Area, Construction Area, Imagination Village, Physical Zone, Sensory Area and The Lab.
