Year 1 Trip to Ledston Estate

Year 4 Science

Year 4 have enjoyed learning about electricity this half term and particularly building their own circuits.

After mastering how to make simple series and parallel circuits, they had to investigate what kind of materials were conductors or insulators.

Well done everybody! We hope you also enjoy our next topic which is called Animals including Humans and concentrates on the digestive system, food groups and teeth.

Science!

In year five, we have been learning about how plants reproduce. Today, we took cuttings from fuchsias and planted them in new soil. We are hoping to watch them develop their roots and grow into new plants over the next few weeks.

Weather Forecasting in Year 1!

Space!

This half term, in year five, we have learnt all about space. This was inΒ  science and topic! In science we learnt all about spherical bodies, the planets, night and day, the sun, earth and the moon. We learnt about Sputnik, the space race and different astronauts in topic! We also performed an assembly all about space. Here are some photos from it:

Year 4’s Mummy

Over the past few weeks, we have been learning about the mummification process used in Ancient Egypt so we have mummified a banana!

The children had fun pretending the banana was an actual body. First, they inserted a metal rod into the nose, trying to liquify the brain in order to remove it. Then, they performed an incision on the left hand side of the banana to remove the organs. After that, they rubbed the inside and outside of the banana with salt. Next, they mummified it, wrapping it up with bandages. Finally, they placed the mummified banana into a sarcophagus. Every Friday, we have been checking changes to observe the different stages of decay.

Here are some of the photos of this experiment.

Super Sounds in Year 4

Today, Year 4 were very noisy!! But it was all for a good reason: we were learning about sound. The children had to find out how different instruments make different sounds and how the pitch can change.

They explored the sounds made by various instruments in pairs and then had to present their findings to the class which was not always easy, but they got there in the end. So well done, Year 4. Keep up the good work!

Year 6 Imax and Science and Media Museum

Yesterday, Year 6 went on a trip to the Science and Media Museum in Bradford. We took part in 2 workshops, watched a science film on the Imax and looked around the exhibitions. We learnt lots of new facts about photography and cameras. We also had the chance to experiment with lights and cameras as well as taking part in science experiments.Β 

In the Imax cinema we watched a film called ‘Mysteries of the unseen world‘. It showed how cameras can capture things that are too small, too fast or too slow for the eye to see. It was fantastic. Here is a clip.

Here are the rest of our photos.

Well done to all the children who represented St.Paul’s brilliantly and received a compliment from someone at the museum for their excellent behaviour.
