Digestive System Investigation


Children worked in group to explore the components and functions of the human digestive system.  They recreated their own digestive systems using some very messy food stuffs along with plastic bags (stomach), tights (intestines) and paper cups (rectums)!

Active Volcano Investigation


Take a look at the first ‘disappointing’ eruption. Our ingredient mix unfortunately failed to create an eruption. I wonder what we could change to achieve more active results?..

Bridge Project with STEM


What a great start to year 6.  We had the pleasure of working alongside a team of experts from Newcastle University to explore the architectural features of a bridge.  Pupils looked at existing examples, designed and constructed their own.  Many adjustments and changes had to be made to ensure the bridge met the specification and could transport goods from one side of a river to the other.  Learning about the types of jobs linked to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths gave insight into possible career paths for our pupils.  

Investigating Light


Help!  Call 999 - a laptop has been stolen from a local secondary school.  There are 6 suspects and a series of experiments to carry out to help eliminate each suspect and find the criminal.  Take a look at the various experiments and investigations year 6 have been conducting to ascertain the credentials of the criminal!
