Science Day 2020

Science Day was GREAT!

We did science experiments and learning all day.  There is so much more we can learn and will continue to do so. 

Science Day Activity Afternoon

What a fantastic afternoon this was! 

During the afternoon there was a carousel of activities set up in the school hall.  The activities were: 

The Egg Drop - Make something to protect your egg when it is dropped from the top of a ladder. Will your egg survive? 

The Light Bulb Challenge -  Make a circuit using wires, batteries and a bulb.  Can you make the bulb light up? 

Build a Boat - Build a boat that will float and hold coins.  How much did your boat hold? 

Design a Glider - Design and make a glider using the resources available.  How far did your glider travel? 

Science Game Station - Using the iPads, have a try of some of our science programmes and games online. 


Magnets KS1

KS1 enjoyed learning about magnets.  

During the study of forces in school KS1 used simple magnets. They are fun to use. You can pick up things made of iron and steel. We learned that at home, you may have fridge magnets - they use force to stick to the door of the fridge - as long as it contains some iron or steel. Magnets are very useful and simple to use.

How much do you know about magnets?

Making Butter 

Classic science experiments are always great fun. Making homemade butter has to be an all time favourite! This must be one of the simplest of science projects with no waste because it’s completely edible!  We love simple science experiments that provide a wonderful end result. This can be so gratifying for children to be able to see and taste the final product of their hard work. Grab your ingredients and get started!

You might also want a lot of warm fresh bread on hand for taste testing.
