Science week 2016

on March 18, 2016

Our theme for Science week was space. We have looked at outdoor space, habitats, animals and photos from earth and space.

To start the week we got cards with animals and sorted them into groups.

Then we investigated what habitats we had in school such as wood chip, bark, long grass, trees and moss.

Then we went on a bug hunt to see which insects lived in which habitat. We used bug pots, nets, magnifying glasses  and identification keys to help.

We tried an experiment, we put warm, soapy water on a non grass area and it successfully brought out the worms. Some were tiny and some were humongous!

Lastly we had Mr Mills in to talk about technology and engineering. He brought a special camera that is used by the army. We learnt a lot. Then we looked looked at photos taken from the ground and in space.

We’ve had a lovely science week. My favourite bit was the bug hunt, I liked looking at them.
