World Science Day

This year we celebrated World Science Day (10th November) with a whole school investigation. The question the children were investigating was: Which fruit or vegetable is best at powering a circuit? It was brilliant to see a wide range of fruit and vegetables tried out– including a fantastic water melon!- and I know that each class enjoyed discovering the results. To add an additional element to this, the older children joined the younger classes to help them to complete the experiment, as well as talking them through some of the science behind it. We were also joined by Professor Fountain and Dr Evans who both delivered excellent and interesting presentations on their respective jobs as real investigative scientists. These presentations both really captured the children’s interest, as evidenced by some super questioning and engagement. Hopefully they will have inspired some future scientists!  Please enjoy the photos below of the day itself and some of the follow-up work the children completed.
