This year we are working together with the Science department of Hans Price Academy to ensure that our learners from KS 2 experience the variety opportunities and resources through research, programming and investigation.
Year 3 and Year 6 have been learning about "Rocks" and "Evolution". To consolidate children's' learning we went to visit Kents Cavern one of the most important Stone age sites. That was a fantastic opportunity to walk through 400 million year old caves and to explore how Stone Age people made shelters, fires, shaped tools and hunted.
In term 6 selected children from Years 3, 4, 5 went to Inspire Trust Science Day to Ashcombe school. Children had a fantastic opportunity to look at the history of rockets. The children worked in “Mission Teams” experimenting with rocket balloons, looking at different load scenarios and effects with their rockets. The children particularly enjoyed recruiting an astronaut, developing a mission and designing a space suit. Without a doubt this day was a great success.
