Christmas Science Key Stage 2

Christmas Science Key Stage 2

Key Stage 2 have been having lots of fun in science this week. They have been building Christmas trees with straws, causing chemical reactions with left over cabbage water, making paper holly sprigs that magically open themselves and investigating solids and liquids to make delicious chocolate crispy cakes!

Year 5 and 6 Police Visit

Year 5 and 6 Police Visit

Year 5 and 6 were lucky enough to receive a visit from a Police Community Support Officer last week. She spoke to us all about keeping safe in the community, managing road safety and what to do if we’re worried that a crime might be being committed. This was especially useful as many of us are now travelling to and from school with friends or on our own. We really enjoyed talking about safety and can’t wait for the next visit!

Investigating light

Investigating light

In year 6 we have been investigating light in science.

We discovered that the white light we see is made up of a spectrum of colours. 

We made Newton’s Colour Wheels to show what happens when these colours are blended.

You have to spin very fast to get white!
