Year 6 had a fantastic time at the Bristol University Science assembly on Wednesday. The theme of the assembly was the air! We learnt an awful lot. For example, did you know that air consists of the following gases:
(Others included, argon, carbon dioxide, helium, hydrogen and water vapour).
During the assembly, we conducted many experiments around these gases. Some experiments included exploding balloons and using liquid nitrogen (-200 degrees celsius) to smash bananas and flowers!
Below are some photographs of the event. If you'd like to know more, then please ask a member of Sycamore Class!
Sycamore Class have been looking at Evolution and inheritance in science and we were lucky enough to have some sheep and lambs to visit us! Mr Strong brought in some different sheep and their cross-breed lambs to show us inheritance in action! It was very interesting and we all learnt a lot - look at the pictures below!
Sycamore have been looking at separating materials this term, including sieving, dissolving, evaporating and filtering. Below is a sample of photographs taken during different investigations. After each investigation, we write about our findings and use our scientific knowledge to explain different results.
