To help launch our topics this half term we had a visit from Professor Brainstorm. He taught us lots of new and interesting things about Science. We are well and truly convinced that Science is FUN!
Class 1 explored the magic of Science and they were AMAZED by all of the things Professor Brainstorm showed and explained to us. We learned how to make a laughing chicken from noise vibrations, how to create a circuit and light up Zog’s nose, how Liquid can turn to a gas that is really cold (liquid nitrogen) and pop the lid off a pringles tube before evaporating and how to make a squid float and sink inside of a plastic bottle!
Class 2 & 3
Today we had lots of fun learning all about fantastic forces with Professor Brainstorm. We enjoyed spinning water upside down as well as shooting potato out of a tube! Unfortunately, we couldn’t defy gravity … but we did try!
Professor Brainstorm wowed us with some fantastic science experiments, made from equipment we could use at home or school! We investigated lots of ways to make sound and light and even discussed what instruments make higher or lower pitched sounds – linking to our Cornerstones topic of ‘I Am Warrior’, we even thought of instruments the Romans would’ve used! Everyone had so much fun.

A fabulous afternoon we have all had when we welcomed Professor Brainstorm into school and participated in a science workshop. We had fun watching electrical explosions, freezing flowers with liquid nitrogen and the famous ‘spud gun’!
Rights Respecting Gold ethos demonstrated by all our children; well done everyone.
