Dear Parents and Guardians,

An amazing amount of science learning and experiences have been taking place this half term. Staff and children alike have been developing their Science Capital, working scientifically and questioning and thinking like scientists. Of course, science really is everywhere. Mrs. Woodley proudly presents the Science Stars for this half term.

3-4O

Destiny: Clear explanations both in discussions and in her written work

Alexander: A superb investigation into changing pitch using different everyday objects.

Alby: A wonderful explanation of how we hear using scientific vocabulary.

Daniel: Telling the class why there is no sound in space using some challenging scientific explanations.

Harroop: Using diagrams to show what happens to volume when the listener moves further away from a sound source.

3-4C

Benny: For showing great enthusiasm and knowledge about how sound travels and how we hear. 

Dylan: For using accurate vocabulary to describe pitch.

Oliver: For making well thought through predictions for our investigation on which materials are the best sound insulators.

Anna-Marie: For describing how sound waves look different depending on the volume and pitch of the sound.

Sienna-Rose: For scoring well in her end of unit quiz on Sound.

3-4M

Fred: Found out which materials are the best sound insulator and recorded his results in a table.

Joseph W: Explained how distance affects volume and how to make it a fair test.

2B

Celina: Creating a super fact file about Rosalind Franklin. It was excellent because it included lots of extra information that Celina had found out through asking her own questions.  

Hugo: Fantastic observation skills when investigating the properties of different materials. Hugo watched very closely and carefully to see which materials were waterproof.  

Arjun: Excellent prediction skills when investigating the properties of different materials. Arjun thought carefully about his prediction and could give reasons why he thought fabric was going to be the best material.  

Noah: Amazing recording skills. Noah worked hard to record our Science investigation and tried really hard to use the correct vocabulary when describing the materials.  

Olivia S: Superb sorting of materials. Olivia worked hard to investigate whether an object could be squashed, stretched, twisted or bent. She was excited to find that some materials can change their shape in more than one way. 

2W

Eesha: Brilliant thinking when discussing Rosalind Franklin's contribution to Science.

Abigail: Excellent observation skills when investigating materials.

Kian: Engaging in scientific discussion and thinking deeply about our Curious Question.

Cole-James: Making sensible predictions about how different materials will behave in different circumstances.

Harley: Great work whilst investigating different material's properties.

1C

Sidney: Super knowledge and sorting animals by characteristics. 

Bobby: Great ideas about animal diets! 

Ava-Lily: Loves participating in online games to consolidate learning in the previous lesson. 

James: Brilliant answers to curious questions! 

Lilly: Always works really hard in every lesson! 

1J

Arlo - for categorising animals and being able to explain some animal's features.  

Sierra - For being able to say similarities and differences of different animals based on their characteristics.  

Leo - For commenting on the structures of different animals. 

Ellie-Rose - For showing lots of enthusiasm when learning about famous scientists. 

R-C

Rocco: Exploring ice and discovering why it melts. 

Leo: Sharing his knowledge about different mini-beasts on our mini-beast hunt!  

R-P

Scarlet: Her observations of winter and her discussion about frost.  

Jack: Exploring ice and how it is made.  

NURSERY

Isla: I'm making a kite then I am going to take it outside and see if I can fly it in the air because if it's windy the kite will fly high up in the air.

Scarlett: The weather is windy today so I think my kite is going to fly really high. 

 

Why not take the chance to spot signs of winter Science whilst you’re out and about during the Christmas holiday?

Every Child Is Born a Scientist ... it's our duty to foster that wonder and enthusiasm, so it remains with them.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Woodley

Science Lead
