Science - Summer Term - Electricity
For this half term, we are learning about electricity. This involves finding out where it comes from as well as understanding how to use it safely. Follow the link below to the website Switched On Kids. It has lots of information and advice as well an interactive activity to identify the dangers of electricity in the home.
Making simple circuits
Follow the link to BBC Bitesize and find out how you draw the symbols for different components in an electrical circuit. Read the information in the Powerpoint to help you make your own simple circuit.
Science - Spring 2 - Habitats and Food Chains
In the second half of this term we learn about habitats and food chains. We discuss the things that all animals need to stay alive: food, water, warmth, shelter, safety and oxygen. We learn about the habitats that different animals live in to get everything they need.
This unit involves some outside learning. We usually take a trip to Worth woods to look at microhabitats and to do some investigations about the animals we find there. This can be done just as easily on a family walk. We also identify dangers to wildlife in the local environment and discuss ways we can make positive changes.
