Science Week 2019
During Science Week the children were busy experimenting and investigating. They designed and made some exciting projects. The children put their knowledge of simple circuits and switches to the test in order to create some super lighthouses. Electricity only flows when there is a complete circuit. Some great creations were designed and made.
The children in Fifth and Sixth Class were investigating gravity also. We found that gravity is a very useful force – it holds everything together. It keeps us on Earth, and keeps the Earth and the other planets revolving around the Sun. Without it everything would float around – that is why it is called the “universal glue”. The children designed and made parachutes to try and reduce the effect of gravity using our steps of Explore, Plan, Make and Evaluate. Check out the photographs below to see how we got on.
