On Friday 26th May, a science 'wizard', Matt Pritchard, visited our school. Each year group was lucky enough to participate in a spectacular science workshop. This workshop included optical illusions, demonstrations of scientific phenomena and an example of how to create a human circuit! The children expanded their scientific understanding by predicting, justifying, hypothesising and reasoning.

 

In addition to this, the children across the school took part in numerous investigations throughout the day.

  • Year 3 - magnets
  • Year 4 - electricity
  • Year 5 and 6 - forces, making wind-up cars (kinetic energy), pulleys and lifts

 

A big thank you to Friends of Foxhills who funded this workshop.
