Year 3 will teach their own science.
Here you will be able to find out what topics are being covered and recent activities we have been involved in. Look out for Science News here too!
Thank you to all of the parents that attended the science drop in sessions. We had lots of positive feedback from parents who appreciated the opportunity to see their children working practically in cooperative groups, making predictions, investigating, closely observing changes and building up their science vocabulary.
Coming up in the spring term...........
The topics the children will be covering this term will allow for more thinking, predicting and drawing on their conclusions. Years 1, 2 and 5 will be comparing and grouping a variety of materials on the basis of their simple physical properties. Year 4 will be identifying how sounds are made, associating them with something vibrating and will use data loggers to recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases.
In March every year group will get the exciting opportunity to take part in Science week and we will be inviting parents to come up in and work with their children and see what happens in Science at Woodgate.
We are very excited to announce that Science Week is happening the week beginning 11th March 2019.
