Electricity

26-02-2024

This term the children have worked on an electricity topic. In lessons we have constructed circuits, found out about symbols and monitored the effect of adding components. A big thank you to Liverpool College who loaned us some voltmeters and to Mr Johnston who took the time to come in to explain PAT testing and showed us how he regularly tests equipment in school to keep us safe.

Living things and their habitats

26-02-2024

We started a new topic this week, living things and their habitats. We thought about our prior learning before thinking about how we could sort and classify animals.

Classification Keys

26-02-2024

In Science, we discussed classification keys and how they are used. We worked in groups to create classification keys using liquorice allsorts sweets. We used their features and characteristics to create our keys and then put them to the test. We discussed how questions needed to be clear and specific so that the key was clear and useful.

Electricity 💡

This term class four will be looking at electricity. Throughout this term we will be constructing simple electrical circuits, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers. We will also be learning how to recognise some common conductors and insulators, and we will be investigating conductors and insulators.
Today we have enjoyed identifying components in a simple circuit along with trying to make the bulb light up.

Forces

26-02-2024

Today in class we learned about forces. We made paper airplanes to see how the different forces would effect the distance our airplanes would travel.

Circuits and Switches

26-02-2024

This week we used electrical components to create a circuit. We then added in a switch to observe what happened to the bulb when the switch was open and closed.

Science – Forces

26-02-2024

Today we carried on learning about forces in science. We tested out how friction can stop us from pulling the books apart. We also made parachutes and experimented on how slow or fast our parachutes fall because of air resistance.

Magnets & Forces

26-02-2024

Year 3 have been looking at magnets and forces this term. We looked at how magnets attract and repel. Using our knowledge of magnets we have made a moving maze game. We had lots of fun!!

Friction

Class 3 has been looking at friction in science this week. We explored how different surfaces have an effect on friction. Using toy cars we measured the distance they travelled on different surfaces.

Science – Checking our pulse

26-02-2024

Today in science we learnt about our heart rate and if we do exercise our heart rate will be faster. We went out to the playground to test this.
