Science Fortnight

This week and last week have been Science weeks in school. Absolutely everywhere, from nursery to Year 6, we have carried out activities following the theme of time.

The children in nursery, reception and Y1 enjoyed a visit from Captain Chemistry. Y2 were testing timers – they looked at sand timers then investigated how to make their own one minute timer using sugar and salt. In Y3, the children answered this question: ‘Which dessert melts the fastest?’ Y4 had fun investigating if different processes slow down how quickly jelly sets. Water clocks were made by Y5. The children in Y6 worked in groups to discover a way to accurately measure time.

The activities were a great success and helped to show how much the children love Science.

Many thanks to our wonderful Miss Scott and Mrs Mann for organising such fantastic science-themed weeks which we have thoroughly enjoyed.
