Last week saw the final session of Fizzpop Science club. Both groups, Key Stage 1 and 2, hosted their ‘Fizzpop Graduation ceremonies’, where each child was given a certificate and gift (UV invisible ink pens) to celebrate their successful completion of the course. They were also quizzed, in teams, to check what they had learned in the previous four sessions

Our Roman Day on 20th May got off to a great start with our singing assembly. We then had a day packed with fun activities including making Roman bread, making Roman sandals and giant mosaics and taking part in some gladiator fighting and chariot racing. We finished the day with a Roman feast. Thank you to all the children for
This week our younger children became detectives and looked at some forensic techniques. Our older children identified when chemical changes take place, using slime, hydrogen and Ph scales.
We have been investigating how sounds are made, thinking about what is vibrating when different sounds are made and using instruments to try to find patterns between things which make high pitched sounds and things which make lower pitched sounds.
This week, our younger children explored chemical reactions (using Ph scales) and then made their own pot of slime! Our older children tested conditions in which an alien could survive, by monitoring chemical reactions. More fun was had by all!
This week, our younger children tested different planet samples (yeast and sand) and discovered ‘alien’ life-forms! Our Key Stage 2 children tested their problem-solving skills by using the force of gravity to help construct working marble runs and bounce pads.
Our new science club, Fizzpop Science, began last week for children in Years 1-6. The older children learned forensic techniques, taking on the role of a police detective. Our younger children tested Isaac Newton’s Law of Motion, using marbles, tracks and bounce pads. They all had a great time after school.
