Science Week in Year 2

On Monday International Women’s Day, we learnt about female scientists such as Mary Anning and ecologist Dr Margaret Lowman.

On Tuesday we investigated Biomimicry. We looked at inventions linked to birds and flight.

We made moving birds to explore how birds flew.
We tested them out!

Then we made helicopters to investigate how they flew, it was different from a bird as they floated down.

We tried to improve a basic design.

Then we designed and made paper planes. They flew differently too, they glided through the air.

We had a lot of fun improving our paper plane designs!
