Cool SCIENCE Activities

Hello Manor Lodge scientists!

So, here we go again - Lockdown 2 - the Revenge!


I'm updating this in January 2021 to let you know what's coming up in your learning, as well as adding in some extra things to do and watch.


This half terms' topics are Human Lifecycles for the Y5/6 classes and Rocks, Soils and Fossils the Y3/4s.


Check out the lessons on ClassDojo, where over the next weeks until we return to school, we will earn facts, skills as well as science investigations. 


I will try to get a few extra experiments set up that you can try - look out for them on the sections below.

We've got this, Manor Lodge.  Let's Science!

Y5/6 Science Autumn 

The Human Lifecycle


As part of the topic for this year being about Animals including humans, it would be good to see a video of life cycles.



Here is a video about different organisms' lifecycles. Hopefully you will see the link that brings humans into the learning and understand lifecycles a little more.

Did you know that of all of the NATURAL rocks in the world, there are only 3 main kinds? What are they? And how can you tell them apart?
