This week the pupils have enjoyed a fun-filled Science Week, where they have had the opportunity to explore many hidden aspects of science in our world.
The children were set the question, 'Why do we need to wash our hands?'. Thanks to two of our parents, the children became bacterial scientists where they investigated the bacteria on their hands after playing outside. With the help of Miss Sue, the children touched petri dishes before and after washing their hands and watched the bacteria grow throughout the week. This really helped answer the question!
Pupils took part in an interactive workshop and learnt about different states of matter. At the end of the session, the children put on gloves and held bubbles made with dry ice and washing up liquid. What big cloudy bubbles!
The children also enjoyed an exciting and interactive activity with Miss Kathy where they investigated how their hearts are able to pump blood all around their bodies.
What a fascinating week we have had, igniting the minds of our future scientists!
