Summer 1 Subject Snap Shot - Science

In our Science Unit this half term we have been learning all about Plants. Our question is: How does your garden grow? We have recapped our prior learning from Year 2 and have looked at the basic functions of a flowering plant. Throughout our unit, we have been investigating each part of the plant starting with the function of the roots and stem. We have set up two investigations linked to the roots and stem and have observed the changes to the plants over a two-week period. In the Summer 2 term, our learning in English will be linked to our Science unit of plants where we will be writing an explanation texts all about caring for plants.

In our maths, we have been learning all about volume and capacity. Before starting the unit, we used our Thinking About Our Learning Board to revisit our prior learning from Year 2. We looked at what knowledge we already had about volume and capacity, the strategies that we could use to support our learning and the feelings that we had before starting our new unit. Here is a picture of our learning wall at the end of our unit.

Spring 2 Subject Snap Shot – Science

In our Science this week we have carried out a fair test to answer a Scientific Question. We wanted to find out if the surface on a ramp affected the distance that an object will travel. We looked at five different surfaces, plastic, wood, rubber, carpet and sandpaper. After our investigation, we found that the object travelled the furthest distance on the wood and it travelled the least distance on the rubber. This was because on a rough surface there is more friction which caused the object to slow down. 

Spring 2 Subject Snap Shot – Computing

In our Computing unit this term we have been looking at branching data base. Here is some of our learning.

Spring 1 Subject Showcase - Science

Light, Light, Light!!

 

Our Science unit this term is all about light. We have explored light sources, reflective materials, shadows and the dangers of direct sunlight. We have carried out lots of Scientific enquiry using our learning power of collaboration to do this.

An investigation that we really enjoyed was exploring what materials let light travel through. We found that transparent objects let light travel through but opaque objects do not let light travel through. Did you know that translucent objects let some light travel through however the light scattered.
