We asked some of the Year 6 children what they thought about the science trip and this is what they said...
Summer - I really enjoyed it, we learnt about friction we also had to do experiments. We watched a man do some science tricks and then he was being funny.
Lily - It was funny, we learnt about egg shells from sea creatures and made mini rockets. We learnt about tomatoes and how they grow faster if you make them think they are dying, you don’t feed them enough water. We had to figure out where we were going in the day, it was fun making rockets and looking at the eggshells of the sea creatures.
Dennis - I really liked the science trip because we were watching a show and the man was joking around. For one of the activities we used a gadget called thermal imaging cameras.
Daniel - Going to the science trip I learnt how they got fruit out of plants, we made a rocket with certain types of liquids. I loved going to this.
