Year 5 Lift Off!

Rowan started their Earth and Space topic by investigating what is in our Solar System. We looked at the different planets and built a model in the hall using toilet paper to create a scale model. We were surprised at some of the distances and we had a good discussion about why Pluto is no longer considered a planet.

Science Week

Science Week is in full flow at Brockswood. On Monday, the children enjoyed experiencing a wide variety of experiments with Dr Lea. On Tuesday, the school hall became an Avery, full of exciting birds, which the children were able to hold. Later on this week, the children will take part in a whole school crime scene investigation as well as completing their own class experiments. Many thanks to Mrs Baria for organising such an engaging and exciting week to bring science to life.
