There has been a real buzz around school this half term! Staff and children were really excited to take part in our first whole school ‘Science Day’. Children from every class took part in a range of hands-on science activities based on the skills of actually being a scientist. Children learnt how to think like a scientist and act like a scientist. The activities included: making vehicles that fly; investigating the effect of friction on the movement of a buggy; observing the effect of exercise on heart rate and discovering that a snowman should wear a coat to stop him defrosting! Children learnt a range of skills including predicting, evaluating, measuring accurately and forming conclusions. Our budding scientists will be excited to hear that following this year’s success there will be three science days next year where children will have the opportunity to be fully immersed in the wonderful world of science.
