Each week I will set a little investigation for you to try at home. If you have a go please let me know by taking a photo and attach it to an email on Purple Mash. You can send it to Mrs Burrell through 2Email. I will then upload some photos on the web page. If you can't take a photo write to let me know how you got on.


Week 1

Dunking Biscuits

Look at a range of biscuits and think about which one would be the best for dunking. What makes a ‘good’ biscuit for dunking. Is it the biscuit that remains intact for the longest period of time or the biscuit that absorbs the most liquid?

Think about how you could plan an investigation to test the biscuits.

You should think about:

What will you decide to measure? How long you will dunk for?

Can you record your results and then draw a conclusion.

Happy Investigating!

Welcome to the Science web page!

Keep an eye on this page over the next half term to see what we have been learning about. As well as the exciting experiments that have taken place across the school.


Mrs Burrellsmiley

St Paul's have been thinking about how we can use less plastic and have discussed the effect this has on the environment especially our oceans. We collected lots of single use plastic that  we use daily at school and have created a display called 'Wave of Plastic'. The display is in our  library with some thought provoking questions along side the wave.
When working scientifically we use these science wheels. There is one for KS1,lower KS2 and upper KS2. They are displayed in each classroom and every child has one in their books.
