Year 2 Science Day

Recently our whole school took part in a Science Day, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all of Year 2. 

Our topic has been, ‘Forces and Movement’ so the children spent a session with each Year 2 teacher investigating a different force or type of movement.  With Miss Griffin the children investigated Magnetism, with Mrs Sanders the children investigated the forces acting upon some parachutes and windmills that they had made and with Miss G the children investigated floating.

In the afternoon the children enjoyed a session where they got to see and touch a variety of animals, for example, a chinchilla, tree frogs, a tarantula and some snakes.
