New Science Scheme
We are currently trialling a new science scheme throughout school. Your child should come home with a log in to this which is called 'Developing Experts' so they can access this at home . It contains videos, presentations and fun quizes to complete. I will post the link below.
Willow class were lucky enough to have an incubator in their class and could watch chicks being coming out of their eggs and observe them during their first few days of life. This was part of their topic 'Life on Farm' which also included a trip to Smithills Farm.
We had a great day with Cosmic Catherine from Sublime Science. Most of the children made sherbet and were amazed at some of the experiments. We learnt all about static electricity and different chemical reactions. We saw different forces in action.
We had a great time for our science day. Dr Adam from Sublime Science came and ran a workshop for each class. We saw whirly tube, screaming rod, smoke bubbles, water vortex and we even made some slime.
Hawthorn Class had a great time investigating which mixture made the best bubbles.
