Foundation Stage Science Roadshow

On Tuesday Dr Walker and Gerardo (our technician) and a group of intrepid Year 8 students led a Science Roadshow for our Foundation Stage children. The theme was “Changes” There were some big experiments including, exploding custard and elephants toothpaste. There were also some hands-on activities where the students explored chemical and physical changes; and looked at colour changes with indicators, acids and alkalis. Leading the teaching and learning in the hands-on activities were a bunch of very able and enthusiastic Year 8 students. In the words of Miss Emma “The children had a fantastic time and are very excited about all the scientific possibilities for our new unit “Change”, with many of them already saying they are going to be scientists when they grow up!” Our Year 8 students were superb ambassadors for learning science they engaged so well with the younger children and maybe taught the adults a thing or two about science…
