What are we learning in Spring 2?

 

Year One are learning about Everyday Materials. We will be testing different materials to find out which ones are best for a certain purpose.  

 

Year Two are learning about Living Things and their Habitats. We will be researching and creating the perfect habitat for a worm. 

 

Year Three are learning about Light. We will be using torches and mirrors to explore how light can be changed, such as when it is reflected. 

 

Year Four are learning about Animals Including Humans. We will be learning about teeth and the digestive system. 

 

Year Five are learning about Changes in Materials. We will be investigating how materials can change from solids, to liquids and gases. 

 

Year Six are learning about Living Things and their Habitats. We will be learning how to classify plants, animals and micro-organisms into different classifications. 

What are we learning in Spring 1?

 

Year One are learning about Seasonal Changes. We will be looking at how the weather changes and how we can record how rainy or windy it is. 

 

Year Two are learning about Animals Including Humans. We will be investigating how animals change over time and why it is important to keep healthy. 

 

Year Three are learning about Forces and Magnets. We will be investigating how the amount of friction on a surface affects how fast a cyclist can go. 

 

Year Four are learning about Animals Including Humans. We will be learning about carnivores, omnivores and herbivores and how this affects the food chain. 

 

Year Five are learning about Living Things and their Habitats. We will be dissecting flowers to investigate the different features.

 

Year Six are learning about Animals Including Humans. We will be learning about the role of the circulatory system and how nutrients are carried around the body. 

What are we learning in Autumn 2?

Year One are learning about Pushes and Pulls. We will be experimenting to see how far toy cars can travel on different surfaces. 

 

Year Two are learning about Everyday Materials. We will be investigating which material causes a ball to bounce the furthest. 

 

Year Three are learning about Animals Including Humans. We will be learning about the different food groups and what we need to eat for a balanced diet. 

 

Year Four are learning about Sound. We will be using instruments to explore different types of sounds and having a go at making our own instruments. 

 

Year Five are learning about Forces. We will be making parachutes to investigate the effects of gravity. 

 

Year Six are learning about Light. We will being using torches to explore what happens when the light changes. 

Science Equipment!:

 

At Whitehouse we provide lots of exciting opportunities for the children to engage with their science learning and experiment hands-on with a range of different resources. This is one of the many ways that the children therefore engage with their ability to work scientifically.

 

 

Look at some of the fantastic resources we have to support the Year 3 topic of rocks!

 

 

In Year 4, we have a whole range of electrical components to make circuits!

 

 

Forces are one of the topics we do in Year 5 - this is some of the equipment we have for the children to explore this unit!
