On Tuesday 9th July, the Year 6 children went to St Mary’s Science Festival. Throughout the day, we completed a series of fun and enlightening science activities. Firstly, we went inside a Star Dome and were taken on a trip into space to look at the planets. We then looked at the constellations and how to spot certain stars in the night sky. Our second session involved us being introduced to some reptiles. We were lucky enough to see a variety of snakes and were given the opportunity to hold Cornflake the Corn Snake around our necks. After this, we watched a magic science show, in which we saw how to make music from metal bowls and glasses and how a Vandergraph works. Finally, we took part in a meteorite workshop, where we conducted a series of investigations about the moon landing. We all had an enjoyable day and learnt a lot about many different areas of science.
