Super Science

To celebrate the end of British Science Week, on Friday 16th March,  we held our School’s Science Day.  With this year’s theme being: Exploration and Discovery, the children were treated to a selection of hands-on activities to get them asking questions and encouraging Scientific thinking.  The teachers were joined by mini astronomers, botanists, chemists, physicists, marine biologists and palaeontologists, who:

  • Excavated dinosaur bones
  • Explored the colours of chromatography and density rainbows
  • Created giant bubbles
  • Played around with the science of surface tension
  • Dissected beans
  • Built structures to hold weight and create height
  • Witnessed explosive chemical reactions
  • Tested absorbent materials
  • Tested materials to absorb impact
  • Made chemical lava lamps
  • Played games using magnets
  • And watched the magic of invisible inks

The children had so much fun getting stuck into the science – hopefully you’ve heard all about their day already and perhaps tried some of the experiments at home too!
