A caring Christian family, striving to achieve our best

Science in action at home and beyond!

One of our core values in science states that:

Science is great when: Children are so inspired, enthused and motivated that science continues at home and through other curriculum areas.  

 

There is no denying that our children are inspired - just look at all the science that happens at home, out and about and the learning doesn't even stop when you are on holiday!

Looking at smaller pieces within his Lego collection, Albert decided to design a Science Lab, complete with safety glass behind which you can conduct the more dangerous science experiments, taps, goggles, test tubes and a working Bunsen burner!

Relighting the flame!

Archie in year 5 saw this experiment on You Tube and thought he'd try it himself - with adult supervision of course. Using a slow motion camera, he captures the moment the flame is re-ignited perfectly!

Nathan in year 6 wanted to investigate whether or not yeast was living, following the question being raised during a science lesson. He discovered that yeast is indeed living as it excretes a gas.

Emma (Nathan's sister) decided she would use the fact that yeast was alive to create some delicious bread!

Milly was so inspired by science week, that she made traffic light jelly, observing the different layers and the changes in material from solid to liquid to solid.
