We compared the measurements taken by all of our partner schools with our own. It’s safe to say that we were not surprised that Wallsend had the most rainfall and the largest measurements of humidity! By comparing each others measurements we learnt lots of mathematical and scientific skills!
Year 2 and year 3 students explored how greenhouse gases affect the Earth’s atmosphere and then together with their teachers carried out a fair test to prove ‘the greenhouse’ function of CO2. They poured 2 cm. of vinegar into two jars, put two thermometers into each jar, closed the jars with the lids and placed them under a lamp for 10 minutes. Afterwards they recorded the temperatures, added half teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate and watched the reaction and temperature changes. The students were surprised to find out that the heat was relesead by reaction. They discussed the outcomes with their teachers.
We designed our own Eco Warriors. We designed their costumes and listed all of their superpowers!
THE ECO WARRIORS SUPERPOWERS
Their breath can close the ozono holes
His hands can lighter atmosphere
With the strength of her thought she can reorder the garbage in different bins
He can produce ice from his hands to save North Pole Animals
They can suck the pollution
They can give a new life to death plants and flowers with the blink of an eye
She can throw leaves that cleans the town
They can create a rainbow with a movement of their hands
He uses his super-speed breath to clean the air
They can transform air pollution in flowers/plants.
They clean the Earth with a water-ray
She can clean dirty waters wiggling her nose
This week our Year 5 students carried out the Greenhouse effect experiment that all of our partner schools have completed. They investigated what happened when the earth warmed up because of the Greenhouse effect and it’s fair to say they were amazed and quite shocked by what they found out!
The children completed the experiment and completed a scientific write up. You can see how they got on and the work they did in the pictures below.
Our Year 2 children designed their own planet saving superheroes! They gave them special powers that help reduce climate change. Some of their wonderful designs are shown below. Each superhero uses their powers to do good. All were slightly different and important for different reasons. The children then decided to use their superhero powers to help out the superhero they designed!
We compared all of the results collected on rainfall and humidity with our results. Here are our findings.
Here are the measurements of rainfall and humidity in Tarquinia.
