SUPER SCIENCE SCENES

This week Beech class were very lucky as they were visited by Westcliff High School for boys  who were here to share some awesome science experiments with us. The children had the opportunity to examine their cheek cells really closely under a microscope. We found out that Mia had lots of cheek cells compared to everybody else and the Oliver pulls a fantastic face when collecting his samples (see the picture below). So, for the Biology experiment we were looking at cells. For the Physics lesson, we were making circuits on real circuit boards. Some children were really impressive at creating parallel circuits. We also had the chance to change the colour of fire during our Chemistry experiment! It was so cool; some children, like Frankee-Lee, were really excellent at guessing what colour the flame would change to. He guessed that Potassium would make a pink colour in the flame. It looked really pretty. We are really grateful to Westcliff High for sharing their impressive knowledge of science with us and will look back on the afternoon fondly.
