This week 2HL have enjoyed celebrating Science week through lots of different science activities and learning. We started the week by planning and writing an investigation to see what nocturnal animals come into school at night. We set out a trap and our results showed marks at each end with a smaller piece of bread than what we had laid out. This told us that possibly a larger animal tried to get into the trap but couldn’t go through. Therefore, we came to the conclusion that a bigger trap will need to be left out with the bread in the middle so that the animal has to walk further through the trap to collect accurate footprints.
Interestingly, we weighed different bird eggs and recorded these to find what bird the egg could belong to. We done this by using information about a quail, hen, duck and ostrich. We found that an ostrich is the biggest bird in the world and its egg weighed the heaviest.
Lastly, we investigated different animal footprints and used descriptions to match them to the correct animal. What an exciting week of science we have had! Take a look at Dhillon’s, Harry’s, Tilly’s, Sahra’s, Ezra’s and Shi Ying’s learning in their books below.
