Year 1 Science week investigation

Discovery Dog asked us if bubbles were always round. We used this question as the basis of our investigation. The class were asked how they could find out if bubbles were always round. After thinking time and a discussion, Year 1 suggested that we tried some  different shaped bubble wands. We decided to try an oblong wand, a triangle wand and a circle wand. Next  we drew predictions for what might happen with different shaped wands. Then we went outside & tested out different shaped wands. After looking at the bubbles from the different shaped wands we concluded that bubbles were always round.

Spring 2 Science Seasonal Changes

During the Spring 2 half term the pupils once again observed and described the weather associated with the season and talked about what they noticed about the length of the day. Year 1  also visited the school grounds to look at the changes that had occurred because it was winter.
