Investigation 1

Science Day

This term we launched our KS1 Science Day. We focused on the planning aspect of Working Scientifically and as scientists we looked at asking questions and recognising they can be answered in a variety of ways.

Year 1 made a ramp using bricks and wooden slopes and observed carefully what was happening when the vehicles were pushed down. We discussed what would happen if we changed the vehicle and asked lots of different questions like how does the size effect the speed? Which type of cars go further? Does the shape of the car matter?

Year 2 discussed lots of different ways we could change the experiment and what we would need to keep the same in order to make it a fair test. In the end, they decided to change the height of the slope to see how it affected how far the car would go.
