Science Week Oct 2021


October 4th - October 9th 2021


This year we are celebrating Science Week by thinking about famous scientists and their impact on our lives today. We are looking at how they have changed the world, and using this to inspire our own inventions and investigations.


In Year 2 we are learning about Evelyn Cheesman - a famous explorer and entomologist (someone who studies insects). Use the links below to find out more about her...


We are also linking our learning to our current Science topic - Living Things and their habitats. 

(See what we have been up to here


Throughout the week we will be:

* learning how to identify birds and conduct our own bird survey. 

* continuing to explore different microhabitats and the insects that live their (just like Evelyn Cheesman).

* learning about food chains between plants and animals.

* learning about our food and exploring whether appearance changes taste.

* developing our research skills.

* thinking about how we can make an impact.

* using our scientific deisgn skills to create a class 'Rube Goldberg' machine.

* taking part in a 'Fab Science' workshop.

In groups we tried out different ways of using materials to create a chain reaction. We then worked as a class to combine our ideas and make a rube gold berg machine to feed the birds (linking to our current science topic).

Please remember the Bank Holiday on Monday 2nd May (so the school is closed) and this half term ends on Thursday 26th May at 3:15pm.
