Whole school visit from Dr Ken
In January, we were really lucky to receive a visit from scientist and entertainer Dr Ken. He put on a show for everyone in the school to enjoy. The main theme of his show was forces. During his show, we learnt about gravity, air resistance, magnets, pushes and pulls.
In reception, they spent the whole week exploring different scientific activities. These activities included a dark tent, looking at shadows, exploring magnets and experimenting with bicarbonate of soda and vinegar.
Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 workshop
During the science day with Dr Ken, he put on a workshop for KS2. The children explored with the idea that a scientific experiment should be carried out multiple times in order to have accurate results. This method also ensures that the test is fair.
