Science Investigation in Year 1

Children in Year 1 have been thinking about what plants need to grow.  As part of scientific enquiry, children asked the 'what if' question, 'what if we add blue food colouring to the water?' when looking at flowers in a vase of water.  The children were really excited to watch the white flowers turn blue as the water went up the stem.  

Science in Year 2

Children in Year 2 have been exploring the outdoor environment.  They looked at microhabitats in our school forest area, including under stones, logs, tree stumps and leaf litter.  The children tried to identify which animals were living in the different habitats.  Afterwards the children compared the animals they had found with animals in contrasting and less familiar habitats.

Science in Year 4

 Children in Year 4 have been exploring our school environment listening for sounds and thinking about what the source of the sound was.  They recorded their findings in a table when they returned to the classroom.

Science investigation in Year 6

Children in Year 6 enjoy planning and carrying out investigations.  They did some investigations about how quickly food goes mouldy in different locations around school and have been combining their Science, Maths and PE skills to investigate the effect of exercise on their heart rate. What do you think happened?
