We had a wonderful Science Week with lots of great investigating going on around school. There were melting ice cubes and exploding coke bottles, walking water, hard boiled eggs squeezing themselves into bottles with the help of a candle and volcanic eruptions.
The children enjoyed finding out about famous scientists too:
Reception learnt about Amelia Earhart, the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. They also produced some fantastic paper aeroplanes, which they practised flying on the playground.
Year 1 focussed on Marie Curie who discovered radium and radioactivity. They found out about x-rays and made some x-ray pictures.
Year 5 studied Galileo and Aristotle and looked at their thoughts and studies about the way objects fall to the ground first depending on their mass but regardless of their weight. They did some fun investigation dropping objects to see what the famous scientists saw.
Year 3 heard about Mary Anning who was a famous palaeontologist. They also made some ‘fossils’ out of plaster of Paris.
Year 6 were researching ingredients in food to see what was in some of their favourite foods and Year 2 looked at the properties of ice and were busy melting ice cubes.
I hope your children have been telling you about the exciting things that they have done and that you have looked at the Seesaw posts for your classes.
