Throughout the week, each class will have the opportunity to work scientifically to develop the following enquiry skills:

  • ask simple questions
  • observe closely, using simple equipment
  • perform simple tests
  • identify and classify
  • use their observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions
  • gather and record data to help in answering questions

What's happened so far ...

What’s been happening in Science this term…

Primary Engineer

Year 1 have taken part in the Primary Engineer competition in term 4.  This involved an interview with a professional accredited engineer, and the opportunity to enter a competition as part of their homework.

The competition asked the question: If you were an engineer, what would you do?

To enter the competition, the children identified a problem, designed their own invention to solve the problem and wrote a letter to explain their design.

A winning design from each age range will be built by engineers, and a selection from each age range will be displayed in the University of Southampton.

The entries from year 1 have been sent to the Primary Leaders Award competition and are awaiting judging!


Science club

Science club has started in term 4 and will continue in term 5. Children have had the chance to become scientists and investigate, predict and observe through lots of exciting experiments! 

Here are some photos from term 4:
