As some of you may be aware, this week is national science week. The children all around the school have been busy scientists.
Year 1 have been issued with three scientific challenges.
1 – To investigate how birds build their nests.
The children explored a real birds nest, watched a video on a bird making its nest from beginning to end and then had a go at making one themselves.
Here are some of the nests we made
2 – to investigate the best material for an astro nappy.
The children had to test several different materials before deciding on one that would be fir for purpose.
3 – to investigate which of our senses give us the most information about an object.
