This term we have been learning all about the physical process relating to forces and motion. We have been identifying things that we need a pushing and a pulling force to make work or move.
In our Science sessions we have enjoyed experimenting with different pushes and pull forces.
This term we have been reading 'The Jolly Postman' and ' The Jolly Christmas Postman'. we have enjoyed Science sessions where we have been exploring different materials and their properties. We have been investigating which materials would be good to make a coat for the postman out of.
We used water guns and sprays to test the materials and see which of them would not let water through. We found that the thick blue plastic worked best to keep out the water, this would be the best for the coat to keep the postman dry in the rain!
This term in Elm Class we have been learning all about materials and their properties. We have been experimenting with materials to find out more about mixing, separating and dissolving.
We had lots of fun Making soup in our cookery session where we were able to see items dissolving in the water. We found out that the lentils and the vegetables didn't dissolve in the water but other things such as salt and the stock cube did dissolve!
