KCSP Science Day
British Science Week
The whole school took part in a KCSP Science Day. All Primary schools across the Trust took part. After an exciting day of working scientifically and completing investigations, classes reported their findings to other schools across Kent. It was a wonderful day that created a real buzz about science across the school.
Reception Class, Year 1 and Year 2 used secondary sources to learn about animals that lay eggs and build nests. The children built nests and tested them against strong winds with a hairdryer!
Year 3 and Year 4 explored sound and vibrations. The children made a seismometer to measure the vibrations and completed comparative tests to find where and when was the nosiest place at St Richard's.
Year 5 and Year 6 braved the elements and completed their learning outdoors - Worm Hunting. The children made careful observations, classified the worms and used scientific equipment to test the soil pH.
