Science Week

This week in first class, we worked on some fun projects together as part of science week.

We have been learning all about different habitats in which animals live throughout the world; this week the pupils worked together to make some wonderful animal habitats. The pupils used shoeboxes and other materials to make dioramas to show their chosen habitat. They worked hard to make ocean, pond, polar, desert, woodland and rainforest habitats. The pupils gave impressive oral presentations to the second class pupils about their habitats, providing facts about its plants, animals and climate.

The pupils explored their sense of taste by carrying out a ‘taste-test’. They completed an investigation to figure out which part of the tongue tasted bitter, sour, sweet and salty flavours through a ‘taste test’. We learnt a lot and had lots of fun at the same time!

Finally, the pupils also made bird feeders using plastic bottles, which they decorated and filled with oats for the birds to feed on.
