Terrific Scientific- Foot Flexibility


To finish our Evolution and Inheritance topic we have have been carrying out a detailed investigation into foot flexibility.


To begin with we, we set a challenge...

how many long would it take to move ten cloths with our feet a distance of one meter?

The boys noticed their techniques varied.

Could you do faster?

Outdoor Learning


Some lucky members of the class have been selected this half term to work with Mrs Hollingworth in the school grounds. Here's what they have been up to so far...

Evolution and Inheritance- Spoonbill v Stork

We looked at how bird's beaks have adapted to suit their purpose. We set up a quick experiment to show how the beaks could perform differently in different habitats. This is a similar idea to how scientists believed the beaks of finches adapted as noted by Darwin on his famous voyage.

Black History Month- One Day Creative Workshop.


In today's workshop we found out about the system of apartheid that was used in South Africa to segregate black and white citizens. In particular, we considered the different viewpoints of the Sharpsville Protest. We learned about the life of Nelson Mandela and the role he played in supporting other citizens in campaigning for equal rights.
