Year 5 ‘Secondary Science Circus'

On the week beginning Monday 27th May 2019, all seven Year 5 classes had the opportunity to visit our Secondary campus for a ‘Science Circus’.

In groups, the children were given one of four different experiments: ‘Reflection and Refraction’; ‘Microscopes’; ‘Rainbow pH’ and ‘Forcemeters’. Using preparation research conducted back in class, the children then used the Secondary laboratories to perform practical investigations on their given topics.

Year 5 teachers and Secondary specialists guided the groups to observe, predict, calculate and record – some of the key skills needed for any scientist. The children thoroughly enjoyed another chance to visit the Secondary campus and experience a taste of the expectations and level of learning that will be coming up in the next two years and beyond.

However, the learning did not stop at the laboratories! The children then had to return to class and recount the process: reflecting on the research, methodology, results and conclusions. Well done to the children for their enthusiasm for the project and a big thank you to our Secondary colleagues for creating and supporting this opportunity.
