In January 2023, KS2 enjoyed a trip to London Science Museum. We had a fantastic time exploring and strengthening our knowledge of science learning we have completed in lessons, as well learning new scientific knowledge!
Learning about the solar system!
Using our body to change speed and momentum!
Enjoying the calming ice machine and the different states of matter created.
Learning about electrical currents.
Learning about our DNA and who we are.
Testing out the water jet, changing the height and angle of the jet to make the longest 'water worms'!
Exploring aerodynamics and forces.
Exploring different structures and forces.

High Peaks have been learning about Sound. We have explored making different sounds and feeling the vibrations which have been created. We even made our very own sound waves!

What is a scientist?
A person who studies or learns about science. They discover different things like germs and cures. They figure out what happens if things mix it may change what happens.
Scientists are someone who learns about science and they create vaccines and stuff like the Covid vaccine. They discover and help people and create experiments to educate people.
What do you like about science learning?
I like that we have fun hands-on experiments and you get to eat chocolate cookies – we were learning about renewable energy and we were looking at mining and picking out chocolate out of chocolate chip cookies to see mining breaks the earth. It is fun to discover different things – scientists use coal to make energy and electricity and use this to understand how it affects the environment.
Everything, science is fun. I like science because rocks are strange things and because you can blow things up. That you can do really fun stuff like circuits. I used to not think about rocks but now I do they’re quite amazing.
What has been your favourite part of science this year?
KS1 'I liked it when we made a rain cloud and a tornado.'
KS2 'I liked looking at the gravestones and discovering the rocks they were made from.
Looking at all the rocks and fossils in class and making the Jurassic cliffs. I also liked making circuits in electricity.
'Learning about the periodic table and atoms. The raisin experiment. Dissect and breathing into a cow’s lung, tongue and liver. Making circuit boards.'
