This week we have had an amazing week of science.
The week started really well with marble runs being created all over the school. The children used a range of different materials including lolly sticks, Blu-Tac, pots and other recycled materials. The aim was to make the longest run. Redwood class created a class run using almost all of their tables! We went to a science show at Athelney on Tuesday where the children learnt all about the digestive system and were wowed by a real life scientist! Wednesday was investigation day. year 5 designed and made catapults to find out which sort of projectile went the furthest, Year 4 looked at how they could make an egg float by adding salt to water and Year 3 created balloon rockets, finding out which was the best angle for a speedy rocket! Over the course of the week we also had microscopes that the children could use, a talk form a bee keeper and a talk for the people who are working at Keston Bog. Well done to everyone for being fabulous scientists this week!
