In February 2019, the children visited Hudnall Park to develop their knowledge and understanding of their Science topic ‘Rocks, Fossils and Soils’.
In February 2019, the children completed different science investigations for their topic ‘Science Projects and Investigations’. They had to investigate what would happen when they mix oil with water and then added detergent to a second bottle to observe the difference. They also completed an egg drop challenge where they had to work as part of a group to design a protective system to prevent their egg from breaking when dropped from a height. For both of these investigations they had to think about how to keep them fair and what variables they would have to measure/change.
