Science Week begins with cross key-stage activities!

awheeler 16th March 2015

Today saw the first of our Science Week activities. The children across the school had the chance to spend time working with another class in a different key stage.

The Rainbow and Sunshine classes worked with the Year 6″s to explore colour. They had fun mixing coloured water and oil, making food colouring pictures on absorbent paper, exploring ice balloons and of the course the messy gloop!

Longships class enjoyed working with Class 3 to make a protective case for Humpty Dumpty. They used various items such as cotton wool, plastic cups, masking tape and straws to create a safe case. Once they had finished creating, they went outside and Miss Bennett pushed poor Humpty off the wall. The children loved watching and finding out whose cases had stood the test of the fall! Unfortunately several Humpty”s didn”t make it…

Godrevy Class enjoyed working with Class 5 on a programme called “Makey Makey” and exploring energy. The makey makey involves making music using a laptop, some wires, a person and a vegetable keyboard. Yes, real vegetables to play music! The children LOVED it! They also enjoyed using balloons to explore static electricity and using an energy stick to light up between a link of people holding hands.

And finally Class 2 enjoyed working with Class 4 to learn all about the power of flight. They each spent time working at a station making aeroplanes and helicopters. They had a range of materials and accessories to add. The children were so engaged that they kept their activity going on for 30 minutes after the finish time! The afternoon ended with a much awaited flight competition!

Thank you to all of the staff for making the afternoon enjoyable for everyone. Every room I walked in to, I was greeted with enormous smiles as you can see from the photographs.
