Welcome to Forest Fields Primary and Nursery School

Super Science!

In year 6 this term we had a visit from Eon. They helped us carry out investigations into Creative Conductors. each group had to design and make a product that involved using conductive materials. Congratulations to all the pupils for their hard work and excellent results.

The children in Year 2 had some animal visitors this term. The children handled some of the animals and found out about looking after each one.

All of Year 3 went to Twycross Zoo to find out about rainforest animals. We saw lots of different animals and found information about where they come from.

Terrific Scientific!

 

This half term, Year 4 had the chance to take part in the BBC science project 'Terrific Scientific'.

This project is currently investigating how we taste foods and what affects which foods we like and dislike. For our investigation, we wanted to find out how many of us were super-tasters, tasters and non tasters.  

 

We used blue food colouring to dye the fungiform papillae on our tongues. Counting these helped us to work out the number of taste buds each of us had. There were lots of tasters and super-tasters in our classes but Miss Radford was a non-taster!

Festival of Science and Curiosity - Monday 8th February 2016

 

Following on from a visit to the Pupil Parliament, 2 of our Year 6 children, Janaide Baugh and Aisha Rashid, set about planning activities to raise awareness for the above event. It was launched with an assembly to KS1, whereby they explained what they did at the Pupil Parliament and also highlighted that they would be planning an exciting Science morning for all in Year 2. The assembly had an explosive ending as the children made colourful fountains of fizzy pop. 

 

The focus for the Festival of Science and Curiosity was the 5 Senses. Janaide and Aisha met with our Science Lead, Mrs Marks and discussed possibilities for the event.

 

The morning was a super success, with all the Year 2 children participating in activities that focused on all 5 of their senses. There was optical illusions, blindfold tasting, feely bags, guitar and drum playing, lots of tasting opportunities and booklets for the children to help focus their thoughts and encourage discussion.

 

A big thank you goes out to Janaide and Aisha along with all the Year 2 staff who helped ensure that the morning was a huge success.

Welcome to our Science Page

 

Here you can see all the fantastic things the children at Forest Fields do in their science work. We asked the children what they enjoyed about science and they said they loved doing practical work and solving problems.

Here are some of the problems they have been solving.

 

Year 1 had fun finding out which material would keep their teddy dry in the rain. They made a coat using the material they chose and then tested how waterproof it was by pouring water over poor teddy's head! I hope teddy wasn't too soggy.

Inyear 5, we were given a real mix-up of things to sort out and separate. We used various techniques depending on the size of particle and the material used.
Picture 1 Which materials can I pick up with the magnet?
Picture 2 Are these ones magnetic?

Year 4 tried to find out how the melting of ice is affected by the size, shape and temperature of the ice block.

Ice hands

Ice hands 1 We made ice hands and then observed them.
Ice hands 2 The hands changed shape.
Ice hands 3 Eventually they melted completely.

We wanted to find out what affected how quickly the hands melted.

What if we changed the temperature?

What if we changed the size?

What if we changed the shape?

We carried out an experiment to find out.

Year 6 investigated how animals evolve over time. They had a day when they carried out investigations looking at why and how evolution takes place.
