Science

Science enables the acquisition of skills, concepts and attitudes that allow children the opportunity to make discoveries about the world around them. This is encouraged through observation, prediction and practical investigations based on first hand experiences and secondary sources such as books, photographs and videos. Scientific knowledge is built up over the key stages along with the use of specialist vocabulary so they can talk about scientific concepts clearly and precisely. Scientists from the past and present are studied.

Science Curriculum

This week, Miss Chadwick's Science Club investigated reversible and irreversible reactions. We created lava lamps using oil and water, and learned about how the density allows this mixture to be reversed, so the liquids separate. Then, we used the irreversible reaction between bicarbonate of soda and citric acid to make the lava lamp bubble and churn!

Miss Chadwick's Science club learnt all about how the different density of food colouring can affect how it spreads, and then looked at aerodynamics and forces and materials, attempting to build a working kite! Unfortunately, they didn't all get off the ground, but the children had a fab time trying!

Altru Theatre company visited school to teach the children all about the Moon Landing in 1969. The children had a fantastic time learning through drama!
