During the Winter term the boys investigated Light and Sound. During their investigations , they were able to use scientific resources and equipment and while exploring their results, the children were able to develop the questioning skills.
The boys really concentrated while investigating sound - they needed to use their 'listening ears'! We experimented with sound using a range of activities such as using elastic bands of different thickness and length. The highlight of the topic was making string telephones and testing them ou.t
During the Spring term we have been finding out about the dangers of electricity and how to keep safe around it. We discussed what we already knew about electricity and what we would like to find out - the boys all wanted to know how electricity is made. We investigated appliances and equipment that used batteries, mains electric and both. We have also been making simple circuits using light bulbs, buzzers and motors.
