What have we been up to this Spring term so far?

Year 2 found out the world record for stretching a curly wurly in three minutes and attempted to set their own record for stretching, bending, squashing, twisting and rolling playdoh.

North Suffolk Active Learning Trust Hub Science Challenge Day

Reydon Primary School took part in an Active Learning Trust North Suffolk Hub Science Challenge Day at Red Oak Primary School.

 

Before the event, the children used their scientific thinking to construct a bridge using only paper straws and sellotape. They designed three prototypes and then decided on the best design features of each one. They then incorporated these features in to the finished design.

 

On the challenge day, the children had the opportunity to challenge their scientific thinking whilst completing such activities as paper helicopters, balloon rockets, making bubble wands and building towers from spaghetti and marshmallows.

 

 

Science Challenge Day 30.11.17

At Reydon Primary School we recognise the importance of our pupils acquiring a wide range of scientific enquiry skills, together with scientific knowledge. We follow the National Curriculum 2014 aims and objectives for Science.

The National Curriculum (2014) for science aims for all pupils:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
