Y4 Science Experiments!
On Monday, all of Year 4 descended on science to learn more about states of matter. Each class had 3 short lessons with Miss McCone, Mrs Worrall and Mrs Diamond, and pupils had the opportunity to see demonstrations and use practical equipment that they would otherwise not see until senior school. One of the best things about being an all-through school is that we can collaborate between phases and pupils benefit earlier from subject specialists to extend their learning.
Pupil voice was enthusiastic- "using the bunsen burners with Miss McCone was the best!" "Mrs Worrall has the coolest classroom ever" "Mrs Diamond showed us how solid can actually turn straight into gas!".
Thank you to Mrs Ormrod and Mr Ainscough for organising the day, and to the Year 4 teachers for letting us borrow their keen young scientists....
