Sycamore’s super science!
Sycamore class have been very busy this week exploring our Science and DT units. The class explored static electricity and circuits with switches through a range of exciting experiments.
As a class we played a game where the children were split into protons, neutrons and electrons. We spoke about how electrons have a negative charge and are attracted to positively charged items which causes a static shock. The children learnt that everything is made up of atoms. We then used our knowledge and explored the theme of static electricity. The children used plastic combs and charged up the static in their hair. The children then separated salt and pepper using static electricity. Sycamore class were very excited for the outcome. We also trialled bending water using the same technique. We evaluated the experiment and thought about how we could cause a greater effect.
The children also explored circuit bugs with Mrs Leader on Wednesday morning. The children had to implement their knowledge of circuits and the flow of electricity to make circuit bugs.
In English, the children have been planning and writing their myth narratives inspired by the story of Arthur and the golden rope. During independent writing the children really demonstrated their passion for imaginative vocabulary and phrases.
Well done Sycamore class!
