We have a Learning Aspect Award for our science teaching. All classes teach science through planned workshops which promotes a hands on active approach to learning. The children work in small groups, which develops their social skills and co-operation. By careful planning of investigations the children will gain in understanding and knowledge and will develop skills and systematic scientific approaches where appropriate. This will promote questions such as how, why, what will happen if, classifying, recording, predicting, testing and attempts to explain what they have found out.
Year 2 Science topics.
Our topic was Animals including Humans. We carried out an investigation to discover whether tall people always had big feet. We also looked at healthy easting,the human life cycle and the needs of animals.
We did a mini topic about space and carried out an investigation into how fast objects would fall. We also made balloon rockets and measured how quickly they travelled across the room. It was great fun!
