Churchfield Church School science week

A massive thank you to Jo Richardson who joined us to lead an amazing science week.  All year groups were involved but my personal highlights were Reception who investigated what happens to food when it is stored and how to package it best for a trip to the ISS.

Year 4 looked at the effect variables have when objects impact on a surface with their meteorite crater investigation.  Year 5 took a different approach and designed landing craft that could survive the impact.  Not all of them made it but, as every good scientist knows, failures often tell you more than successes so there was some good quality learning going on there.

Year 6 designed and then subjected themselves to an astronaut fitness programme which would assess and improve their suitability for a space mission.  They tracked their own biometrics and analysed the data.  With Jo, they learnt about the vital importance of effective hydration and how to measure their own levels.

All in all, it has been a fantastic opportunity being involved with The TPPP and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made it possible, especially Jo.  The teachers were inspired and took many ideas away with them for future learning opportunities and the children gained useful knowledge and, most importantly, their horizons were lifted.
