On Monday it was our annual Science Day. Student teachers from SCITT spent the day with us teaching exciting science lessons across the school. Each class participated in three lessons that were based around the work of famous scientists including floating and sinking (Brunel), water displacement (Archimedes) and air resistance (Galileo). The lessons were very practical, resulting in a lot of learning. It was great to see all the children so enthusiastic and inspired by science.                        Mrs Calnon

 

Firstly, we began with learning about Isaac Newton. He discovered that white light is made of the colours of the rainbow. Next, we got some torches and and puppets and measured the size of the shadow. We then had to measure the space between the puppet and the torch. Next, we went to Class 1 and learnt about Mr Eiffel. He was the man who designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris. We had to make the Eiffel Tower out of spaghetti and marshmallows! We found out the strongest shape is the triangle. We rotated around all the other classrooms and took part in lots of scientific experiments. Thank you to the student teachers that came to teach us and to Mrs Calnon for organising such a great day!               by Archie I and Rufus, Class 3
