Mulberry have had a lovely week doing 'all things science' this week. We began by thinking about a really important skill in science - our enquiry and asking questions. Mr Cooper gave us some very strange looking images and it was our job to enquire and be inquisitive to try and find out what they were. We were all quite surprised and although we didn't all get the correct answers, we thought of some brilliant questions we could ask to get the answers!
On Tuesday, Lower Key Stage 2 were very lucky to get to meet some scientists! We met a science lecturer, astrophysicist, computer scientist, doctor, clinical technician and fluid dynamics student! They told us all about their jobs and inspired lots of the children to think about science as a career. They brought props for the children to see and thought about how they use science in their everyday jobs. A massive thank you to all of the scientists involved in the talk from the whole of Westwood!
To end what has been a wonderful science week, Mulberry Class were lucky enough to visit a Virtual Vet School. The children visited a farm with the vet and learnt lots about a vet - it may have even inspired some of them to be vets in the future!
A massive thank you to everyone who helped and participated in our science week, and Mrs Burke and Mr Cooper, our amazing science leaders, for organising a brilliant week!
