Superb Science Fair Led By Year 6, by Mrs Walsh

Date: 18th Mar 2024 @ 4:22pm

As part of Science week, the Year 6 children held a Science Fair to celebrate the Science that goes on in school.  The primary objective to the project was to approach a problem scientifically and have fun. The children's brief was to:

  1. Ask questions and form hypotheses
  2. Creat an experiment to test those hypotheses
  3. Organise their data and draw conclusions
  4. Write about scientific research
  5. Make links to the wider world

The project had to be experimental in nature as opposed to research oriented. In other words, they had to do a test, survey, or experiment to determine the answer to their question. The fair was then open for viewing and the children from Reception to Year 4 as well as the Year 6 parents enjoyed observing the science exhibition. 

Well done to Valentin who won the competition.


Year 5 visit to Jodrell Bank, by Mrs Shotton

Date: 15th Mar 2024 @ 11:02am

Year 5 spent the day at Jodrell Bank, the U.K's largest telescope, exploring our Solar System and building on their knowledge about our world and beyond


Date: 15th Mar 2024 @ 10:57am

During Science Week the Year 6 children made an indicator out of cabbage juice today and then tested the pH of some household chemicals like: vinegar, soap, sugar, lemon juice and surface cleaner.  Purple plants (like cabbage) turn red in acids and green in alkalis therefore they are good to use as an indicator. 

They moved their experiment on by conducting a neutralisation test; acid is the opposite of alkali so mixing the two makes neutral.  

After that the children had fun with sodium bicarbonate, acid and a rubber glove!  Sodium bicarbonate is an alkali, so it neutralises acid.  The reaction produces carbon dioxide gas which is why it fizzes and bubbles.

Reception Class farming live!, by Mrs Shotton

Date: 14th Mar 2024 @ 12:38pm

Reception stepped into the boots of a farmer to discover how they spend their days.  They joined a live session, on the farm, with Farmer Fiona learning about how she cares for her animals and grows their own food!
