Year 5 Science roadshow
Each class in Year 5 was visited by a group of students from Westcliff High School for Boys for the Science Roadshow. The children were taken on a tour of the three main scientific subjects – Chemistry, Biology and Physics – to give them an overview of what each entailed. In the Chemistry sessions, a variety of metals were burned to create multi-coloured flames which mesmerised the children. The Biology session gave children an opportunity to see the microscopic cells which are found in their mouths whilst the Physics session presented challenges to the children involving electrical circuits as well as air resistance. The experience was thoroughly enjoyed by all and it was incredible to see so much enthusiasm towards an important core subject.
