Crab Lane Primary School



Thought for the Week - When I listen, I show others that I care about them.

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 06/07/2020

This week isn't a messy experiment (so parent's should be happy), but we do need some sun! We will be building our very own sundial. A Sundial is an object that helps you tell the time, you will have to be patient with this one as it may take a few hours to set up. Have a go and take some pictures of your Sundials.

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 29/06/2020

This week we are looking at a simple, but fun experiment. We are also using some of the ingredients from last week's session. Have you ever seen a raisin dance? Well pop on your favourite tune and see if you can make these raisins boogie.

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 22/06/2020

 When we've been in school, a lot of science experiment requests come in the form of wanting explosions/slime/foam! On this page we've shown you a range of different types of science that don't just include a chemical reaction. However, after having a go at this in school, we only thought it was fair to share it with you!

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 15/06/2020

 We are carrying on with our planet saving experiments. This week we look at Sustainability. Sustainability means using natural resources in a way that we could keep doing for a long time. We can be more sustainable by reducing our use of natural resources, and recycling or reusing objects or food. You can complete this experiment with lots of different vegetables or fruit, but we've started you off with a look at growing some lettuce, onions and garlic. 

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 09/06/2020

Another week, another fun science experiment! Like last week, we have taken inspiration from The Great Science Share's theme. They are celebrating World Oceans Day 2020. By recycling a plastic bottle (and making sure it doesn't end up in the ocean) we can create our own ocean in a bottle. As always if you have a go please send it to y3parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk . 

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 18/05/2020

Just like last week, we have taken inspiration from The Great Science Share's theme. They are celebrating National Scavenger Hunt Day. We have taken inspiration from one of their experiments, and something that we do in Year 5 looking at life cycles. We are going to create our own Butterfly life cycle with food! In school, we would usually have real butterflies to look at, but we hope this is a good enough substitute until we get back to school. Remember to send your pictures to y3parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk . 

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 11/05/2020

This week, we have taken inspiration from The Great Science Share's theme, they are celebrating 200 years of The Royal Astronomical Society, and are looking at all things Space! Check their website out for more information. We are going to be creating moon craters, this is a great observational experiment that everyone in the family can take part in! Remember to send your pictures to y3parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk . 

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 04/05/2020

Hello again! This weeks experiment is one that year 3 should be confident with. I thought we would share the amazing plant learning that we completed back in Spring 1. We looked at how water travels around the plant. We used food colouring to help us explore this learning. Have a look at our experiment to find out more. Remember to send your pictures to y3parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk . 

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 27/04/2020

Hello, Miss Duignan here and I'm uploading another fun science experiment! 

The challenge today is to try and make a compass from a paper clip. A compass is an object that tells you which direction you are going in (North, East, South, West). The compass always points to North. So let's see if you can get your compass to point north today!

As always, if you want to take photos of your experiment, send them to  y3parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk

Please state whether your parents or carers consent to the photos appearing on our website too.

SCIENCE EXPERIMENT W/C 20/04/2020

Welcome back to Summer term at Crab Lane, there are some great science activities on your class pages. But if you want to test your scientific skills even more, then check out our science experiments below.

The challenge today is to try and blow up a balloon, without using your mouth and lungs! 

As always, if you want to take photos of your experiment, send them to  y3parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk

Science Experiment W/C 06/04/2020

A new week, a new science experiment! This week, Miss Duignan challenges you to make your own lava lamp. This requires objects that you can easily get from the shop, or you already have in your house.

If you want to take photos of your experiment, send them to y3parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk

Please state whether your parents or carers consent to the photos appearing on our website too.

Science Experiment W/C 30/03/2020

Here is the next science experiment. Again, resources are things that you should have at home. 

Our first experiment helps clean your pennies! Make sure to read how it works to understand the scientific facts behind your experiment. 

If you want to take photos of your experiment, send them to y3parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk

Science Experiment W/C 23/03/2020

Here is your first science experiment of the week. We will try and keep experiment resources to what you have in the house at this moment in time. They are short activities that you can space throughout your week!

 

Our first experiment creates art using Milk! Make sure to read how it works to understand the scientific facts behind your experiment.
