The children thoroughly enjoyed celebrating science week by taking part in fun experiments all about ‘Connections’. We are currently finishing
our entries for an upcoming Science fair in May. Class 1 made ramps out of different resources in the classroom to find out the connection between the height of the ramp and the speed of a car. Class 2 constructed bridges out of paper that were strong enough to hold 100 grams. Class 3 had lots of fun creating cup telephones and thinking about sound waves become vibrations. Class 4 enjoyed being apart of an NFU’s Education Science Farm live lesson, where they discovered how sheep and seaweed are connected. Shepherd Susie Parish, sheep farmer Emma Boyles, wool innovator Kate Drury, and Steve Allnutt from the Sussex Seabed Restoration Project, took the children on a journey, where they followed wool from the sheep to the seabed, to see how it is helping to
restore sea kelp populations.
