February 9, 2017: String Sounds
What can you do with some plastic cups, and a big ball of string? Well, class7 went outside to do some science with them, and learnt more about sounds. How could a child all the way over the other side of the yard hear what we were saying quietly?



January 26, 2017: How Does the Ear Work?
Class 7 have made a video to explain how sounds reach our ears, and how we can hear them.



October 21, 2016: Class four baking



October 13, 2016: Switches and Circuits
Class7 have been learning about switches in their science work today. They even created their own working circuits with switches in them that turned a light on and off. Can you think of examples of where switches are used at home?



September 19, 2016: Class four find the pulse..
Today we have been exploring the effect of exercise on our pulse.



September 8, 2016: A little bit of science homework
Class 7 have begun their science topic on electricity, and asked some fantastic questions about electricity. Ellie May asked "How is electricity made?" As a homework task, can you find out the answer and leave a comment below (remember, first names only)



July 15, 2016: Out of this world!
Class7 had a great time at the National Space Centre on Wednesday. Here are a few images from their trip. And the whole class had their photo taken with a famous astronaut...



March 2, 2016: Can liquids damage our teeth? (The results)
We left the experiment we started last week for 7 days and today we looked at what had happened to each of the eggs. We were really surprised by what had happened to some of the eggs, and so spent a lot of time talking about what we thought had happened to each egg.



February 24, 2016: Can liquids damage our teeth?
Class 7 and Class 3 started a joint science investigation today to investigate how liquids might damage our teeth. We decided to use eggshells instead of teeth (none of the children wanted to volunteer a tooth!) and placed several eggs in different liquids. We are going to leave them in the liquids for a week, and then look at what - if anything - has happened to the shell. Can you make a prediction about what you think might happen? Leave a comment below with your thoughts. Thank you to Mr Merrill, our school chef, who boiled the eggs ready for us to use :o) - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad



December 16, 2015: Rockets, Astronauts, and Spacestations
Earlier this week class7 watched the amazing launch of a rocket carrying British astronaut Tim Peake to the International Space Station. The children were full of questions about the space station, and absolutely amazed when they were shown live pictures coming from the space station looking down on Earth. Black Image = International Space Station (ISS) is on the night side of the Earth. Grey Image = Switching between cameras, or communications with the ISS is not available. The following graphic is taken from the BBCwebsite; If you'd like to see the ISS with your own eyes, you can see it passing across the sky this month. If you look to the west at the right time, you can see a bright light moving up and overhead towards the east. Unlike an airplane, it does not have flashing lights, so is easy to identify. For the times that it will be passing over Nottingham this December, visit http://www.meteorwatch.org/uk-iss-passes-december-2015.html for times of passes
