Super Scientists

Read about the different science lessons that have been undertaken this term. Young children like the word Why. At BIS HCMC children are encourage to enquire and find out those answers. One way they develop these skills is in their science lessons.

Our smallest children have been using all their senses to explore the world around them. They have been experimenting with different materials, mixing colours and learning about our environment. Many classes have adopted strange creatures and have been observing what they get up to. F1 have been observing snails. F2 are reading “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and have some to look after. F3 have had fish, caterpillars, geckos and worms. Year 1 have been using their 5 senses and thinking about how they grow. While Year 2 have been busy investigating different materials and amongst other things, have made a new outfit for Traction Man that will offer him the protection he needs.


At the Junior Campus, children have been enjoying the ‘Wow-factor’ of Science in each Year Group. Year 3 are now coming to the end of their first Science topic ‘Rocks’, in which they have enjoyed investigating the properties of different rocks, particularly making ‘Rocolate’ to simulate how rocks are made and transform.

Students in Year 4 are developing their scientific expertise and skills whilst working on the topic “States of Matter”. Through a variety of activities students have been exploring how different materials act.

Year 5 have been learning about the planets and the solar system in their ‘Earth and Space’ topic. They have used a range of research techniques to developing their knowledge and understanding of gravity and orbits.

Year 6 have been learning about the circulatory system had a taste of advanced biology (thankfully, not literally) when they dissected real hearts!
