Photography

Children have learnt how to use the different modes on the cameras and have taken various pictures around the school. They have taken weekly photos of the building works around the school and then transformed these into diaries on the IPads, editing their photos and text. Children have taken pictures from different angles and have had to think about the direction they are facing and what they need to include in a picture.

Science

Science club is offered to pupils in Years 5 and 6 and focuses on the children’s ability to work scientifically. We have identified the skills required to make an effective scientist, and the children in science club have shared these values with the rest of the school during assembly.

So far this year, we have looked at making the most effective bubble wand and bubble mixture, the optimal growing conditions for cress and have designed our own torches considering insulators and conductors. The children have focused on their ability to plan investigation, make an observation and draw a conclusion from their results and evaluate their investigation, as well as having lots of fun!
