Predator Topic - Science

Welcome back for Summer Term! Our new topic is called Predator and Miss Davison has plenty in store for our science lessons. We'll be exploring food chains, fossils and birds of prey - just to name a few! In class we're going to have some carnivorous plants (venus flytrap and pitcher plants) to observe, and in a few weeks we'll be dissecting owl pellets. To top up your predator knowledge, check out the BBC Earth Unplugged series on Youtube or Deadly 60 on the BBC iplayer.

Watch to find out about our mini-world water cycle

We put a handful of soil in the bottom of the cup before adding cress seeds and a little bit of water. Then we placed clingfilm over the top with an elastic band. Now we can see the condensation forming on the clingfilm after the water has evaporated. When the water droplets get too heavy, they will fall as precipitation and water the cress.

Our 'States of Matter' science unit is coming to an end - look how much we've learned!

Wow! What a start we've had! The children are lapping up facts about the Greek myths and can already tell you all about the Zeus and his children  living above the clouds. on Mount Olympus!

The stories have captured their imagination and they are retelling and recalling details such as how gods are recognised, their powers and special symbols.

WRIGGLE & CRAWL!

 

Have your wellies at the ready as we set off to explore Pilsley Woods and our school environment.

We will be sweeping through the natural world, observing, collecting and returning small animals to their natural environment.

This will lead to plenty of data collecting and investigating to find answers to their own questions. 

So, with magnifying glasses and information books at the ready - let's get exploring!
