The Key Stage 2 Science Day was a great success! All the children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 participated in a selection of scientific investigations and experiences.
With Mrs. Johnson, the children used forensic science to discover the identity of a thief. The children used finger-printing to help detect the culprit.
Miss Lowry challenged the juniors to investigate whether the concentration level of washing up liquid affects the size of bubbles. The children designed their own fair tests, carried out their investigations and recorded their results.
With Mrs. Sykes, the children studied earthworms and learnt that worms have 5 hearts and are hermaphrodites (both male and female). Many questions were tested, including: Do worms prefer hot or cold temperatures? Do worms prefer light or dark? and, How far can they travel on different surfaces?
