Children in Key Stage 1 have been channeling their inner scientist this half-term!
Year 1 has begun learning about materials and their properties. By exploring the world around them, Year 1 children have understood why certain materials are better for some things than others. Using this knowledge, the children have predicted and investigated the best material for the Three Little Pigs to use to build their houses. After seeing the results, I’m sure the wolf would have a tough time blowing these houses down!
Year 2 has been studying electricity and exploring how electricity is used at home and at school. The children have developed their understanding of how to stay safe with electrical items as well as building their very own circuits! This week, the children investigated conductors and insulators of electricity and thoroughly enjoyed finding out the answers!
