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.

Science - Spring 1 - Sound
Week 6
This video clip recaps what we have learnt so far about sound and moves on to talk about the parts of the ear.
Below is a sheet to complete to show what you have learnt. Also, at the end of the clip, the presenters mention using your body to make music. Just for fun, I have included some body percussion videos in case you wish to have a try. I would love to see you videos of how you get on. Why not see if someone else in your family wants to have a go with you.

These Science activities will follow the sequence of learning we would complete in school. So, even if you don't manage to do one each week, do start from the beginning and work through them. For example, if this is the first time you have had a look at the Science folder, start with week 1 no matter what week you are in.
