Science and Technology
We use the woods for lots of science work. We go pond dipping, identify plants, observe seasonal changes and think about our environment and how to protect it.
Year One love going to Elmswell farm for their outdoor Science lessons.
We learn about seasonal change. We identify a variety of trees and flowers. We talk about evergreen and deciduous trees.
We always see Boswell and the other cattle.
Bog Babies and Beegu!
In Year 1 that stories of the Bog Babies and of Beegu really fired the imagination up.
The Turtles went to Kingsmill woods to collect suitable items to make a habitat, they made a bog baby by only listening to the description and not seeing a picture.
The Starfish made a spaceship for Beegu to return back home in.
We love being outside.
This is our outdoor area where we can plant seeds and do science investigations.
Science week was amazing.
Please take time to look at the PowerPoint about some of the things we do in school.
Science area in Year One.
The children are able to use different forms of technology on a regular basis. There is access to laptops in the classroom. Also available are iPads, computers and the interactive whiteboard.
Science and Maths in Year One
Foundation Stage/ Year 1
Science - looking at natural objects found on an autumn walk. Asking children to closely look and feel the different things they have found.
Children learning to design their model before making. Discuss with adult how they might achieve the desired effect.
After carefully watching caterpillars transform into butterflies we finally released them.
There is no better way than for children to appreciate the world around them, than to go outdoors and experience it at first hand. Mrs.Jackson has been taking groups of children to Kingsmill Woods to observe the changing seasons and plants and animals in the local environment.
Maths in the environment has also been very successful. The children have used measures to find circumferences, made various shapes with twigs, practised directions, found right angles and made repeating patterns.
