Learning through Science

Students have been very busy extending themselves through engaging in Scientific experiments. These experiments were inspired by books the children had read during ESOL, specifically relating to boats and the concept of floating and sinking.

Younger students named objects and tested out whether these would float or sink - a lot of conversation went on!

The older children formed their own hypotheses and made predictions about which objects they thought would float or sink, and explained why. These items were categorized based on the children's predictions, then re-categorized upon completing the experiment and reflecting on what happened.

Some great language development and extension went on here, which was further reinforced in the children's writing (following the model of 'statement, explanation, example').
