British Science Week:
In the week beginning 13th March, we celebrated British Science Week. The theme this year is 'connections' so we have been making links between reading and science. Each year group read a different story and carried out some investigations linked to them. The children in Year 1 read 'The Princess and the Pea'. They then designed their own mattress and discussed which materials they thought would be best to use so that the princess wouldn't feel a pea. Following this, they tested their ideas. In Year 3, the children read 'The Gingerbread Man'. They investigated what happens when a gingerbread man is placed in different liquids. The children also really enjoyed designing and making boats using different materials before testing which boats were able to keep a gingerbread man safe from water.
