Last week saw the final session of Fizzpop Science club. Both groups, Key Stage 1 and 2, hosted their ‘Fizzpop Graduation ceremonies’, where each child was given a certificate and gift (UV invisible ink pens) to celebrate their successful completion of the course. They were also quizzed, in teams, to check what they had learned in the previous four sessions
During our lesson today, we became linguists and explored archaic language within a riddle. Using the clues, we were able to work out the answer, which was a location found on our ‘Alchemy Island’ map.
On Tuesday 21st May, six Year 5 pupils, who have a keen interest in Science, spent the whole morning at Bablake Secondary School’s Science department. The session covered aspects of Chemistry, Physics and Biology and as you can see, at times, proved to be a hair-raising experience! All of our children were extremely well-behaved and they reported that they thoroughly
This week our younger children became detectives and looked at some forensic techniques. Our older children identified when chemical changes take place, using slime, hydrogen and Ph scales.
After learning all about the moon landing last week and hearing first hand what it was like to witness such an event, we questioned why some people might suggest it did not happen. Today, with ideas and facts researched, we formulated a debate; with some of us supporting the notion that it did not happen. Here we are, working together
Yesterday, in year 5, we learnt about the 8 phases of the moon. We became familiar with the correct terminology such as ‘lunar calendar’ and were able to label the phases. We were introduced to a ‘Phases of the Moon’ rap, which helped us during this lesson as it had some very catchy lyrics. We also went outside to try
Today, as part of our learning, we focused on the author’s intent. During the lesson we analysed the text as part of a team and highlighted key features that help entertain the reader. Some of us used the description to help sketch the setting.
This week, our younger children explored chemical reactions (using Ph scales) and then made their own pot of slime! Our older children tested conditions in which an alien could survive, by monitoring chemical reactions. More fun was had by all!
