28 Mar Science Week!
What a busy science week we had! Parent volunteer, Jill Clay kicked us off on Monday using her engineering and science background to lead workshops on bridge building, at Rode. Over at Norton the children built towers of toilet rolls to see how many could be pulled along without the tower toppling. They investigated how to build towers that were stable and strong, looking at real towers for inspiration. Our own Mr. Searle visited all the classes to help them to plant seedlings, beans and cress heads. Years 2,3 and 4 investigated what wolves, pigs and cows eat and whether they are omnivores or herbivores. Year 3 made space rocket blow toys using straws. Gruffalo built conveyor belts to transport ball pit balls into buckets. In the klezmer musical workshop at Rode we learnt how an accordion creates sounds using pushes, pulls and wind. Gruffalo class went on a walk to find frogspawn and Elmer class had to use their 5 senses to spot signs of spring on their science walk.
