We used our outdoor environment to work in groups and experiment with instruments. Please see the below link.
We have been using out outdoor space to explore shadows and to find patterns in the way shadows changed. We were lucky enough to have a lovely sunny day and were able to measure our shadows at three different points in the day; 9am, 1pm and 3pm. This enabled the children to compare the shadows and led to discussion around what happened to our shadows and why we think this happened.
We spent time outdoor exploring forces and investigating how objects move on different surfaces. The children worked in groups to test the same objects on three different surfaces; the grass, the playground and the tennis table. We then worked as a class to collate our results and discuss out findings.
