It All Electric

This week we started our topic Electricity.

In our first lesson we discussed different types of electricty, where electricty comes from and sorted appliances according to whether they used mains or batteries.

Some pupils concluded that appliances that used batteries needed to be more mobile than mains powered one in order to meet the demands of their use.

 

Animals

This week we started our topic about animals including humans.

In our first lesson we ordered pictures about what happens after we are born then we discussed how baby animals are born – whether they hatch from an egg or are born alive.

 

 

 

Living Things

In Spring 1, we are studying living things and their habitats.

This week we have been learning about how plants reproduce.

 

 

Water Resistance

As part of our work on forces we carried out an experiment to understand more about how water resistance reacts to different shaped objects.

 

 

Forces in 5NJ

Autumn 2 is all about forces.

Last week we looked at Isaac Newton and his discovery of gravity. We measured a variety of objects with a newton meter to investigate the strength of force acting on an object.

This week we studied how air resistance affects an object. Ask us to tell you what we did.
