14th & 15th of November 2016 we held a Science and DT Day. We linked the Science and Design & Technology to the National Campaign
Each class was invited to a workshop hosted by Severn Wye Energy Agency and the feedback from staff and children was extremely positive!
Back in class there were investigations on how to blow up balloons without using your breath, potato & lemon clocks, electricity, chocolate and bubble blowing socks!!
The children’s skills of observation, predicting and questioning were really put to the test and further developed from last year. There were lots of smiling faces & laughter throughout the school.
The teachers then followed this up with talking through the scientific principles behind the experiments to deepen their knowledge.
A fantastic day BUT it didn’t stop there! There was a chance to show off our investigating, design, making and evaluating skills in DT. Each class was asked to design and create a machine to help use less electricity and help slow down pollution going into the atmosphere.
Class 1 designed cute 2d robots using cutting and gluing skills.
Class 2 built great robots that had a moving part.
Class 3 created stunning machines that had permanent & temporary fasteners.
Class 4 and 5 created whizzy machines that incorporated electricity!
What a great way to link real life problems to Science & DT skills & knowledge. On Friday, Children In Need Day, we are completing the week with dressing up as scientists and raising money for people less fortunate than ourselves!
