In honour of Science Week, Year 1 and 2 spent an afternoon together with parents exploring and investigating lots of different areas of Science. We had apple dissection to sort out the parts of an apple, dancing raising to see what gases can do, tin foil boats to create the best floating boat, lego house building with different materials for the roof to see if they were waterproof, skittle rainbows to see how colours leave the skittles, ice with different substances to see what melted it fastest, and magnets to sort out what was magnetic and what was not
The children, and parents, had masses of fun and it led to some awesome conversations. It was lovely to see so many parents get involved and be able to discuss science with such excitement and the enthusiasm followed back to classrooms where the children had (what felt like!) hundreds of great and inquisitive questions.
