Science Week 23-27 January 2023
For Science week in Early Years, the children got to learn about All Things Science. The children enjoyed a science performance by Dangerous Dan from Mad Science, and got to take part in lots of experiments of our own. To link with the book the children are learning about called “How Does An Egg Hatch”, the children learned about the life cycle of a chicken. They also took part in an experiment where children learned about density.
Children also had to predict what would happen to an egg whether it will sink or float if it was dropped in just water or when it was dropped in salt water. Children also got to dress up as scientist or anything to do with science.
Year 1 and 2
The children looked at how volcanoes work. They had a short presentation on the different types of volcanoes and what they are made of.
Then they conducted an experiment on trying to make their own volcanic eruption by using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.
As a class the children looked at what happens when these ingredients mix and how the different components cause a reaction.
The children enjoyed designing their volcanoes and making their own volcanic eruptions.
Year 3 and 4
The children had all of their lessons linked to science, including their Art lesson where the children were learning how the human eye works. The children then drew pictures of eyes and used pointillism to add colour.
The children drew amazing science posters and displayed them in their classroom. They also used brilliant teamwork skills and opened up microscopes using the manual. They explored a variety of ideas, including looking at their own hair under the microscope. They also looked at a human fingerprint and identified their own fingerprint type.
The children also enjoyed a fantastic science show in the school hall, where all students took part. It was an educational week, filled with loads of fun science.
Year 5 and 6
Year 5 and 6 used their super science brains and investigated how a rain cloud is formed. They used a jar as a clever technique and carried out an experiment to scientifically understand what happens in a rain cloud.
They watched a short presentation on how clouds are formed and then the children successfully created their own clouds in a jar!
The children also enjoyed a cool and clever show delivered by the Mad Science team showing science show based on the element of fire. it.
The next day, they had another amazing day of amazing costumes designed and made by the children to celebrate the end of Science week at Evergreen Primary School.
