Year 1 visited Blue Reef Aquarium
The children observed a wide range of fish and sea creatures at close quarters. They were able to talk about the characteristics of fish whilst on the visit – scales, fins, tails, etc.
Year 1 visit to Ropner Park.
As part of our ongoing science work we visited Ropner Park to look at plants – more specifically deciduous and evergreen trees. The children were able to identify which trees were evergreen and could recall the names of some trees – Horse Chestnut, Holly and Maple. We collected a range of leaves, conkers & pine cones which the children were then able to identify and classify.
Year 3 visited the Life Centre- Gateshead.
Working alongside scientists the children had the opportunity to develop their scientific enquiry skills.
Year 6 children took part in the Children Challenging Industry Programme.
Taking on the role of engineers, the children were challenged to make a circuit with a sensor/switch that will tell us when the well has enough fresh water. They managed to see some of their work in action at Hartlepool Power Station!
