Where does flour come from? 



Have a go at some of these exciting experiments




        Week Beginning 11th May 


What materials would be ideal to build a bridge? 


Conduct an experiment to test the strength of different materials that you could use to make a bridge .

Write a list of what materials would be good and why? What are your predictions? Now test out your theories...……………….





Week Beginning 4th May 2020     

This week in Science we will be experimenting with different materials  - noting their properties and what we could use each material for. Think about the materials that the 3 Little Pigs used to build their houses. What did they want the materials to do? Did the material that they used work? Was it strong enough to keep them safe from the wolf? 


Have a look at the key words below about materials? 

Explore other materials to build a house....... what things could you use? 




Have a look at the Powerpoint below then do your own materials hunt around your house

Science Experiment - What can you Huff and Puff down?

Science in Reception Summer Term 

Welcome back to our Science Page everyone - I have some fantastic news for you - See the photos below. We have 3 very healthy butterflies ready to be released into the lovey sunshine. We also have a poorly butterfly who is struggling to stretch out her wings just now so I'm feeding her some tangerine juice each day. Fingers crossed she'll be ok. Maybe you could send me an email with a name you'd like to choose for the butterflies or perhaps you'd like to write a little prayer for her?

Planting Challenge Week Beginning 20th April 2020 

This week's task is to plant a seed or bean. I will be planting a sunflower outdoors at home. I am also going to plant a bean in a bag with some damp cotton wool to see if it will germinate. We can then watch the root growing down and the shoot growing upwards. I wonder how man days it will take? 


Will you have a go too? 


There are lots of "2Dos" for you to do on Purple Mash. 


I'll keep posting photos of our very hungry caterpillars. In the mean time - why don't you try crawling on the floor like a caterpillar! Then create a gymnastics routine based on him curling up, doing egg rolls and stretching up to the top of the lid! See if you can nail your landing! 

Tuesday 24th March Complete an observation of the caterpillars. What changes have occured?
