FDLT Y1 Leicester Making and manipulating images.

session 1 LeicsFDLT Y1 Science explorations

Year One FDLT students at Leicester exploring ice balloons in their first science session.

Using a range of materials from salt to sand; tools including drills and thermometers and different temperatures of water students explored the ice structure  by testing out their own questions and ideas.

It was a great way to begin to reflect on teaching science in a fun and engaging way. We also considered how the exploration could be used to explain observations in the world around us and as starting point for a range of cross curricular topics.

In this session the Y1 Oadby students made collages, manipulated the images in the apps ‘Rollworld’ and ‘Fragment’ and then chose an image from each exploration to put in a sequence the app ‘Visual Poet’. They also introduced me to the apps ‘Perculator’ and ‘Photobooth’.

They made a river profile by measuring from bank to bank; they timed the flow of the river in the riffle and in the pool and they were shown how to take a kick sample from the river bed.

They sorted the creatures they found in the sample by number of legs and looked more closely at these using a magnifier and the Big Magnify app on the IPad.

Georgina talked to them about how the river creatures can reflect the health of the river.

After lunch we went for a walk to see the medieval fishpond and the dovecote that provided food for the manor house of the Tresham family many centuries ago.
