Class 2 are very lucky to be piloting the Crest Science Awards. Between now and the end of term the pupils have to complete eight science challenges. Examples of their work and photographs will be uploaded to the Crest website and on completion of all of the challenges, the pupils will be rewarded with a certificate. The challenges all relate to the Key Stage one programme of study for science but are enquiry based and therefore allow the children to lead learning and develop their questioning and investigative abilities. We have so far successfully completed three challenges; these relate to minibeasts, identifying trees and classifying objects made from trees and creating a rainbow collage from natural and scavenged materials. Next week we will be moving onto investigating materials, including what materials would make a good umbrella, although I hope the sun continues to shine and we don’t need to use them!
