  • Artistic Science

    Published 10/01/19, by Sara Lindley

    We often combine art and science lessons in our Magpie class!

    This week we are learning about the artist Carl Warner who is famous for creating "Foodscapes"

    Whilst being inspired by his strange works of art we will also be investigating how food feels and smells and how its texture can be changed. We will also be learning about a healthy plate of food and the different food groups that we need to include in our diet.

    Watch the video below to learn all about Carl Warner. How he became a "Foodscape" artist and how he plans and creates his amazing sculptures.

  • Little Twitchers! (Bird Watchers)

    Published 05/10/18, by Admin

    Yesterday in the lovely October sunshine we had an outdoor science lesson. Our objective was to try and identify birds that live in our locality. We watched a video first and found out that the Sparrow is the most common bird in our English gardens.

    Armed with a bird identification sheet we spent 10 minutes recording the birds we saw.

    Funnily enough, we saw no sparrows! Pigeons were the most common birds in our playground. The children were very excited though .....the magpie class actually saw a magpie!

    We also discussed how binoculars help us to see the birds from a long distance. The children decided that binoculars help you see the details on the birds and also mean that you can be far enough away so that the birds don't hear you and fly away.

    Finally we returned to the classroom and watched a video that showed a bird hatching from its egg and growing into an adult. The children were all able to then complete an activity about a bird's lifecycle using the words egg, hatchling, nestling and adult..
